"One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple."
(Jack Kerouac)

I wonder if this isn't exactly "the thing" — say what's on your mind in the clearest, most direct way possible — with the immediacy of communication your principle goal. Simplicity resonates more deeply with the human psyche than complexity; one would initially think it the other way around. Simplicity engages; complexity resists. Possibly, when simplicity is matched with simplicity well enough, deeper meanings appear but not all at once — the words remain simple but their aroma in conjunction with one another is rich and tasty.
