In high school I wrote a poem. I’m sure it was for you - the
infamous, anonymous you. Lines of unbearable
; (unbearably) rhyming torment scribbled on margins of bulk-bought, college-ruled looseleaf.
A poem for every page.
My words flowed jagged stuttering out emotions that even still have not been named. Decorated with sketches and doodles. Great artistic outflow that was continually more important than the repetitive drone of disinterested curricula.
And then there was you - there was always you there was only you
; the infamous, anonymous you. My blinkered muse.
Your talons in my heart held steady on my pen Until my words were no
p; own. My identity transformed (mutated) by a shadow in your eye.
Very interesting piece here. I liked it alot. It flowed nicely, and reminded me alot or my first poetry writing. :) Good stuff, hope to see more of your writing soon.

I'm having serious issues with the form of this piece. It's integral to it's rhythm. However, spending another afternoon formatting HTML for a poem that I wrote two years ago is not what I have time to do these days :/
RainbowGyrl - just a word of advice on trying to force HTML to format unusually spaced text properly: Don't.
Just enclose the whole thing in a set of <pre> tags. It may make it come out in an ugly font, but at least it will format with all the spacing you want.
(that's how they used to do a lot of HTML formatting in the days before Netscape invented tables)

Spudly, that's what I usually do but I thought I'd do thing the hard way this time.
