"I'm not an arsonist. But I am a pyromaniac." -Kieth Richards, Life


Yesterday Tess was




a Deep Thinker.
An Understander.
A Knower.
Said she was destined
to be Famous.
She liked to shop
Online and
plan her wedding
because it is never too
soon to plan even if you
haven’t any Takers
yet.

Today Tess is
not good at Anything
and No One will ever marry her.
Says she needs to Think Deeper.
She is too Fat for
new clothes and will
never sing in public
again.

She is fishing in a polluted curmudgeon sea.
She knows not
that tomorrow
she will say
she will make a
Great Dancer.
A porcelain Ballerina dancing
on the ethereal clouds of her
Close Personal Friend
God.

But she is falling
straight through them.
A porcelain anvil
destined to be
shattered.

thanks you really went the extra mile with commenting on my stuff. I don't know why this happens when I submit my work, the lines just end up all over the place. the original format is much easier on the eyes.

This poem is really special and interesting. My eyes jumped around too much though. Maybe you should combine some of the lines to not make it as choppy. You really have a talent with writing poetry though :).
