i had a dream about words they tumbled together to make a poem ever changing some rhymed with mischievous vigor as their spirit surpassed my smarts i tried to control their intellect but they slipped away to new situations before my brain could believe them the phrases they made had a sense who got away from me always slowing me down but speeding the words up crazy thing i enjoyed the chase searched for something i could use in my own reality but never found an entity who wanted to belong to me this beast who was tame in my psyche never showed me a scrap of something i could keep morphing into impossible structures to confuse me they were beautiful art all their own who never could be remade a poem of a poem whose perfect force has left me with only a memory and unworthy words.

i could go on and on! i love this style of writing, first of all, it's amazing. i've only written one piece like this myself, and they tend to be very raw and viscerally deep. great job with this!! second, i love that you say your dreams and thoughts are untamed. it reminds me of one of the pieces i have yet to submit. :)
