Sometimes feelings can be overwhelmingly good but incredibly frustrating at the same time. Sometimes there just aren't words powerful enough to describe what's happening inside.

That's how I felt tonight as Sam and I sat on a bench and watched the waves bob up and down in the glow of the city lights.

It's his birthday and I wanted to express how loved and appreciated he is. It was all inside me, filling my heart but I couldn't get it out for lack of language. 

There's a word in Korean for this feeling, like pressure building up in your chest because of the inability to articulate yourself - 답답하다 (dahpdahp ha da). It's surprising how often you want to use it.
