Reflecting me,
crazy words leave
my lips undesired
not here, not there
just words uttered
like Muppets moved
in plays you wish you’d
never seen.
Cold as
ice falling to
burnt dunes in
blazing desires.
Remove the veil
covering a masterpiece
light your cigarette-
surrender to insanity

serendipity's reflecting
How true.. sometimes words are inadequate even if they are your only tool. I like the style you chose for this poem, the diction and rhythm combine to create the same disjointed cacaphony that thoughts tend to have when one feels helpless. It's really very good.

i agree totally with fairgrace, you need to read this at least a couple of times to get the true meaning of the poem. it discusses a simple subject with such loveliness shown in how you drew pictures to describe the feeling with such accruacy. i'll give it a 10.
