    my crowded wall

    look
    you are just another face
    on my crowded wall
    all the same
    all the same
    you offer nothing more
    you get nothing more
    you blend with the rest
    easily overlooked
    because there is too many
    too many of you
    nothing special
    I am blind to yours
    blind to your skin
    stretched over boney ridges
    unmoved by your eyes
    them hollow sinkholes
    giving away to empty
    look
    you are amongst the dead
    fading into the background
    what a name
    what a name
    wasted title without a body
    no language to speak of
    no unique streaks
    setting no soul on fire
    you are motionless in character
    never brand new
    claimed by dust
    day after day
    what a total bust
    stuck in the same pose
    without a mystery at all
    just filling more space
    on my crowded wall

    wow....very intense, very provacative and well said. "....wasted title without a body..." is freaking genius. thank you, dear.

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
