\"I\'m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can\'t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don\'t deserve me at my best.\"
— Marilyn Monroe

Imagination is more important than knowledge...
Albert Einstein

Stab my beating heart,
Cut open my caramel skin,
Open my milk chocolate eyes,
Rip out my voice box

Find the emotion behind the pounding,
The blood beneath the covering,
The experiences behind these hollow spheres,
And the voice behind my meaningless words

You say you know me - everyone does
But do you know? No.

If I didnt tell you how I felt, would you be able to guess?
If I couldn't say "Ow" and "Ouch", would you have hurt me already?
If I couldn't say "Ugly", would you have made me wish I was blind?
If I was speechless, would you help find my voice?

If I left this poem endless - blank
Would you make me wish there was no beginning?

Would you?

The author's comments:
I really have no words for this poem. The words flowed naturally and it randomly became what it is. It really has no concept, and I want to keep it that way. I think it's best left for interpretation.
