I NEVER MET SOMEONE
WHO COULD TALK SO LOUD
AND YET SPEAK SO SOFTLY
I COULD BARELY HEAR.

I … like … never … um … met … ­someone …
who … could … uh … think … so … much …
and … like … say … hmm … so … little …
that … I … er … saw … no … point … to … it …

!!!I!!!never!!!met!!!someone!!!
?who?could?use?tons?of?punctuation?
!?and!?express!?no!?emotion!?
… it … sounded … like … m-o-n-o-t-o-n-e …

I never met someone
who could fake it so well
and fail so miserably
that I stopped believing.

DidYOUum!!!hear

that?

This is awesome! I love it. It is very unique, and has a power and voice of it's own. I love that it is somehow easy to relate to, and that you can derive different meanings depending on who you are. I love how the simplicity somehow expresses abundant emotion, and almost tells a story.
