Quizzical expression, cocked brow.

I am the girl with the quizzical expression and
Cocked brow
Swimming in this dense white existence
Not sure how
I mingle and touch the others still,
On the other side
Yet I am neither here nor there
I sit, my time I bide
Waiting on greatness to come knocking
What else is there?
I’ve come too far to turn back, to be
Normal now isn’t fair
To myself or to others who’ve known me
I latch on to a single dream
To be the geniuses I read about, harder
Than it could seem
My goal now, not hard is to find, another me
On the other side
To assist me, push me forward, closer still
To the dreams that tide
My continuous mind, do I think more than others?
But how?
Is there another with the quizzical expression and a
Cocked brow?
Unsure and growing weaker now, the sense
Becoming harder to find
So I put the pen to paper, hope to sprout a beanstalk from
My magical bean of a mind
Curled up in this mass of white nothingness
Fetal position, rocking
Darkness in my mind continuously
Fighting, stalking.
To keep the sanity I once possessed I –
Know just how
I reassure myself there’s another, quizzical expression
Cocked brow.

This is a very interesting poem.  I think it describes your state of mind very well.  But generally speaking, most words in your title should be capitalized.

I honestly the loved this poem. The unique "off beat" of the entire thing made it seem more real, tangible somehow, great job!

I really like this! Wonderful visual images painted with the simplistic details. I especially like the analogy of the beanstalk and the magic bean. It's very well written. There's sort of a rise and fall feeling, which I feel fits in wonderfully with the "dreams that tide." It's a joy to read, and I like the variety in line length. Overall, excellent job. Perhaps clear up some of your ideas; the word order sometimes gets confusing. I mean, I know what you're getting at, but others might not. For... (more »)

Thank you so much. I used complex wording to paint a picture of being a confused individual and an aspiring writer. I am on my way to comment on your work. :) :)
