Expression Acrostic Poem

It's about putting to paper what I seem unable to speak. When the spoken word escapes me, the written one comes shining through.

Every now and then, when I feel, I write poetry.
Xerotolerant, completely dry of the ability to explain the weight on my shoulders,
Poetry is a language that understands all tongues,
Reaching out with words that speak to others.
Endless possibilities to connect people, to allow people to express
Sadness or love or loneliness or joy or those feelings that don't have names.
So what was once bottled comes tumbling out onto my napkin or notepad or laptop.
I always feel a little lighter once the words inside become earthbound.
Overthinking and unable to explain what's combusting internally,
Never knowing what to say, but being able to put the feelings to paper.
