Pensive thoughts
like film clips,
stuttering
and jumping
across the projector
where you watch.
Pick the favorites
but don't forget to
cut out
the rejected, scattered images.
I fear I shall
be sliced away
with your surgeons hands
and disposition.
The cold, empty
eyes
watching those
pensive thoughts.


The author's comments:
This piece was just based on some random emotion I had at the time. I hope you will interpret it how you like, that's the best part of poetry.

Miranda, this piece is simply beautiful, and if you don't believe me, you are in fact insane. "I fear I shall be sliced away with your surgeons hands..." What a great line. Love love love it!
