Dictionaries

I’ve tried writing about you again,
And I hated everything I wrote.
None of it did your eyes or your smile,
Or the poetic sound of your laughter justice.

I couldn’t describe the way your gold hair cascades over your soft shoulders,
Like a jar of honey over a marble countertop.
Or the way your hands send shocks through my body
Like a defibrillator bringing me back to life.

Maybe there just aren’t words to describe the ones you love.
Maybe there’s just feeling, and eye-contact,
And lip-reading,
Because your smile says more to me than any number of words
That I could possibly pack into the margins of a piece of paper.

Maybe there’s just loss.
Feeling lost.
Looking into your eyes when they flash with anger
And exasperation,
And feeling like I’ve carved a loose raft from the trunks of my thoughts,
And now I have to weather a beautiful storm.

Maybe there’s just arrhythmia,
Like my heart feels upon seeing you.
Skipped beats in moments that flash past
Faster than my heart could possibly beat anyways.

And that half-second before I stutter out your name in awe?
Maybe that’s a good indicator
Of how words stop having definitions as time passes,
And dictionaries become only the most ironic of paper-weights.

Maybe language was only invented by chance,
By someone who had never seen real beauty before.
By someone who has never felt so connected
That silence seemed more appropriate
Than any noise their larynx could produce.

I thought that maybe, somebody could find new words,
I’ve already seen them all.
Then, I saw you,
And words appeared to me like visions in the darkness I didn’t rest in,
Aligning and re-aligning;
Trying to join together
To make something half as beautiful when connected
As the connection our eyes made
In the split-second you looked my way
And took my breath away.

But, no, they couldn’t,
And I realized I couldn’t find anything else to say.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.MBTI is based on the work of Carl Jung, the famous Swiss psychiatrist who studied personality archetypes, and founded analytical psychology. Katherine Briggs and her daughter, Isobel Briggs Myers, expanded on Jung’s theory to identify a total of four pairs of opposing psychological elements. According to the theory, everyone has a preference for one of the characteristics within each pair, and we use that preferred approach most of the time.The four psychological scales are as follows:(E) Extroversion – (I) Introversion(S) Sensing – (I) Intuition(T) Thinking – (F) Feeling(J) Judging – (P) Perceiving Although one side of each scale is thought to be dominant for each of us, that doesn’t mean it’s the only way we can relate to the world. However, this is usually our preference and the style we use most naturally. So, if you’re a person who relies on feelings, this doesn’t mean that you can’t use objective data to make decisions. It simply means that you’ll probably use feelings to some degree.If you are curious about your personality type, you can take the MBTI here.
