Stutter

Full stops and run on sentences
choke
on semicolons and
question marks-

still I choke on the same redundancies.

    I wasn't the biggest fan of the repetition of "choke" here, but then I read again, along with the theme of the title "stutter", and it kind of felt genius then ;)

    The hesitancy in this, uncertainty, doubts, all of it in just a few short verses.

      I actually changed the wording right before I posted this. Originally the last line was "still I cough up the same redundancies." But it sounded too much like a line in another poem of mine, so I decided to reuse the word "choke" to correlate with the title. Thanks for your input tho:)
