blitzkreg poem

January 18, 2011
study the math
study the books
books of knowledge
books of thought
thought of you
thought of change
change the channel
change yourself
yourself is good
yourself myself separate
separate stories
separate takes
takes love
takes strength
strength of spirit
strength of mind
mind hurts
mind is numb
numb like a punch to the face
numb as dry ice
ice skating rules
ice is slippery
slippery water slide
slippery when wet caution
caution danger
caution my life is a mess
mess in my room
mess in my desk
desk is where I work
desk is a place to sit
sit out a shift-- that looked like it hurt
sit down lets talk
talk talk talk talk
talk I never stop
stop at the red light
stop don’t go please
please listen
please wait
wait for it
wait up
up in the clouds
up in the sky with my dreams
dreams not nightmares
dreams of you
you who I miss
you who never bothers anyone
anyone with a true heart
anyone who’s soul is warm

This is really cool! I've never read a poem like this before, and it's a really neat idea. Nice job :)
