Drowned in Thought This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
and I cannot tell you
free from invis(imagine)ible vision
bondage anchored views
let it go (un)ravel twist
congest accelerate main artery jammed
pressure point dis(tribute) disturb weight
transfer answer inner calm
submerge emerge hot water balance thrown
sunken reference point out truth
sources matter cite me parenthetical pathetic
how can you believe in(sanity)
attempt understanding at access unknown
label construe explain with their language
the visual (internal) hidden fogged mirror
ripple reflects film distort skew still
breathing banned beneath bubbles only escape
under muscles tense under layer unfound
heat unheard affects steam projects ideas unheard
now my head is clear (mine)d is cluttered again

Wow, that was really interesting... in a very good thought provoking way. I love how you aranged seemingly unrelated words into a fantastic poem... the words, or parts of words in parenthesis are such an amazing and interesting part of it too!! awesome :D

The title suits the twisting labyrinth-like thought structure you present. The words were of a diverse category, which is surprising. So, overall, I think I might actually like this.
