Lost In Translation

Our hearts speak to us
In languages we try to decipher
Where approvals sound like rejections
And speech is overrun by desire

Some sounds we speak get stuck in our throats
While others are universally acknowledged
Some figures of speech are a challenge to uncode
While others are beautifully unraveled.

Some words stand out and speak for themselves
While others need justification
But as every good interpreter knows,
Some words are lost in translation.
