They see nothing
Their eyes are glazed
With the light of computer screens
[a web worthy of Shelob herself]
Ears stopped with the cries from within.

Jaunty caps
[black as one perched on a speaker]
And sour complaints.

Blue and white are the colors of the day
[could they be the colors of forever?]

I too am stained
Poisoned,
Tied-up and strung
[like the strings attached to friend's hearts, but worse[

But am I? Are they?
[is this all there is for me?]

Ernest Hemingway: If it's bad, I'll hate it. If it's good, then I'll be envious and hate it even more. You don't want the opinion of another writer.

Beautiful. I love the brackets. If I were to read this out loud I would get somebody to help me and one of us would read most of the poem and the other would read the bracketed parts.

Thank you, Adeline, I'm glad you liked it :) 

I think it's funny that you guys are all confused and mystified by it, but are cautious about asking for the explanation, thinking that would break the mystery of it all somehow :) (It probably would, BTW XD )

We're all scared to say the things worth saying.

wow that was very... abstract. but in a good way :) it left me speechless and confused (haha confusion again!) like thesilentraven, I was going to ask for you to explain, but I feel like that would take away from the essence of perspective of the poem. good job, i like it :)

Never compare your life with others, as you have no idea what their journey is all about.

I just loove the first stanza of your poem. And you have written the poem very well. Good job star girl. Namaste.

I am afraid that it would dissolve, the secret bhind it is not so secretive, though it doesn't make it any less mysterious or transparent in my opinion.

Thank you for your words, weaver, their complexity and eloquence drinks well.

At last; this is an extraordinary way to embrace your inner strangeness! My first instinct is to ask for clarification, but if I did, would that not dissolve the attractive mystery of the poem? It leaves me mentally thirsty, but in a good way, because that's what makes me descend deep down inside it, only to emerge with a greater mind. Well done, Stargirl, well done!

I like this. It's cool. :)

There's a lot of mixed messages.
