The world inside my head (For want of better words)

Words chase each other around my head, blabbering, incoherent;
the half-formed heads of fairytale stories, never finished, never ending.
Wispy, like white eiderdown. Slowly floating to the bottom of my skull, there to stagnate in an eternal pool.
Occasionally, gravity reverses itself, they float up, towards the sunny-blue sky that is the top of my brunette head.
Together, the words solidify, and form stories, stories for you to read, stories for me to write.
Is your head the same?

This is pretty good... long lines, but other than that it was neat.

I love the words, especialy in the 5th line, but I think the lines are too long. The rhythm doesn't really make sense.

Your head is quite interesting :)  I actually wrote a poem before reading this that has the same idea, the world inside my head called "Limitless" but it hasn't been posted to the website yet.

Sorry I have to laugh, I had this strange vision of astronauts floating inside your head when gravity reverses. :D

The use of metaphors in this poem is really awesome. And I would like to say that "my head is the same except the fairytale things...." Very good poem.

My dear Stargirl, he found it very much to his liking!

I have always known that wonderful things go on inside your head, but it was so good to be able to read the metaphysical laws which guide your mind's goings-on. And I think that the poem itself deserves far more than an 'eh;' I think it to be quite beautiful! I speak on behalf of all of your readers when I say that it's such a gift that gravity sometimes reverses itself in your head. When the absurd happens, there are a... (more »)
