The more I can't speak, the more I feel like I'm near the words.

Tahi Saihate



Your words are "your live broadcast." The poet says that when you can't speak well what you want to tell, she wants you to say words as they are without trying to make a punch or a change. And she also says that when she sees a person talking loosely about things that are not interesting or have no meaning, she is impressed that he/she has lived being loved by everyone. "Loosely" is the touch of happiness. From an essay collection “Your Excuse Is The Best Art.”
