Impossible prompts and other misadventures..except there are no other misadventures

Another response to Becca's writing prompt:

I am....

i am the prompt that is impossible to respond to. i am the prompt that makes you stare at the page dully trying to remember who is "I" and who am, is, are, were, was, or had "I" been?

i am changing every day, and i cannot find pretty little adjectives or nouns to describe how or why.

and that's the problem. 

writing and speaking--saying and clarifying,
trying to make people understand something that i can't even solidify.
it's that crumbly cob ball that breaks apart every time i try to put it in just the right place.

communication is my warm wall.
