Select All

I cannot count the times I have sat down and typed out a long message in great detail. 

Agonizing over word choice and punctuation. 

Trying to capture the complete picture. 

I want you to be able to see, hear, feel, taste and smell everything as it is. 

I want you to feel my anger coursing through your veins. 

I want you to feel my pain in the pit of your stomach. 

I want your breath to catch so you can join me in gasping for air. 

And I capture that moment. 

Frozen in time. 

And just before I hit post, I select all and backspace.

How much that needs to be said is left unspoken?

How many times do we speak when we should hold our tongue?
