    Pictures In My Mind...

    I, paint,
    Pictures in my head,
    About the,
    Part of me that's dead.
    So long,
    And fare thee well,
    I guess,
    We'll meet in hell.

    These pictures in my mind,
    The one thing that you'll never find,
    These pictures in my mind.

    A whisper,
    That you will never hear,
    A secret,
    Dream I love, yet fear.
    Stop running,
    And it consumes me.
    Hide away,
    And don't let anybody see.

    These pictures in my mind,
    The one thing that you'll never find,
    These pictures in my mind.

    I try to,
    Shout but my words fail,
    A part,
    Of me just set sail,
    Across the,
    The bright red ocean,
    Where's the,
    Poison in my potion.

    These pictures in my mind,
    The one thing that you'll never find,
    These pictures in my mind.

    I paint,
    Things that can't be real,
    I paint,
    What I don't show I feel,
    And these,
    pictures in my mind,
    The one thing,
    I will never leave behind.

    These pictures in my mind,
    The one thing that you'll never find,
    These pictures in my mind.
    Populus me sibilat, at mihi plaudo ipse domi simul ac nummos contemplor in arca
    There is only one thing in this world that gives me my slender grip on reality, and that's intimate relationship I share with my large collection of singing potatoes!

    I love it!!! It is awesome.
    The stanza that I like most is this:
    "A whisper,
    That you will never hear,
    A secret,
    Dream I love, yet fear.
    Stop running,
    And it consumes me.
    Hide away,
    And don't let anybody see."
    "La dignité n'est qu'un paravent placé par l'orgueil et derrière lequel nous enrageons à notre aise." Honoré de balzac.
    "La réalité implacable me conduirait au suicide si le rêve ne me permettait d'attendre". Guy de Maupassant.

    Wow, I like the interesting breaks! At first it felt stilted, but I just had to get used to the unique rhythm. =)
    A bit that I wrote: Vanilla Ice Cream. Comments and critique welcomed! :-)

    I'm feeling the rhythm, snapping my fingers. Where's the snow when I wanna dance in it?

    Wow, I just noticed that this poem was written way back in 06, Reichenbach gone with it. Maybe not.
