No, it is not.

It is showing that the mystical experiences and the reality of God are beyond what humans can express. The relative difference is only relative. I mean, do the best written works concerning love compare well to love itself? Does the description of the beauty of a thing compare well to the actual beauty?

The writings of St. Thomas are of the highest quality.

St. Thomas, as a person, is a saint and in Heaven in the presence of God.
