Just so you notice me in the midst
Of the bare colored walls, I wear
Florescent polka dot dresses every day.
My heart is hit on by a hailstorm when you pass
By the nook of the passage where I stand but-
That you can’t hear my loud and extremely
Audible internal calamity
Makes those thrashing hailstones bruising
My fragile flesh
Weigh a thousand tons more.

Hello! I really like how even though this is not a rhyming poem it still has a bit of a rythym. The vocabulary in here is really, really good! This is a really good poem, it makes a lot of sense. And the picture goes well with it! Good job! Xx!
