Stop.
Look.
Listen.
The candlelight echoes.
The marble reviews itself.
There are many introductions but only one ending.
You very well could find yourself on the edge.
But are you completely sure?
Are you complacent with this?
The candle itself could be monstrous.
There is no guarantee that on the sill rests the answer.
An audible ticking can be perceived,
But is it really a clock?
Following this line of thinking could define much.
The heart beats ever onward,
Feeling its way out of excess.
Water may boil, but ripping paper will not fulfill anything.
And yet the wax drips down, down, down.
The eternal puzzle rests in my very eyes,
And I have no method of seeing.
Within every canyon lie hidden truths.
Within the very folds of space lies nothing.
Copious amounts of data work their way into systems known everywhere.
There is no greater challenge than the most minimalist task.
Perhaps shivering will produce great works,
But most likely no more.
Detritus is a landmark unto itself.
Feathers. Feathers. Feathers? Feathers. feathers.
Every following is destined for more.
Parades erupt in places most like trees.
Parades erupt in places; most like trees.
Thiry-seven is a number quintessential.
Just when it was thought,
It was discarded immediately and without thought.
Now madness this may seem,
But is it so?
Or is that just how you wish it to be?


The author's comments:
This is one of my "masterpieces" as I like to call them. I don't have proper titles for any of the three, Masterpiece #1, #2, or A Thesis. These three documents open up the inner workings of my mind incredibly to anybody who was ever inclined to find out how I think. Each document highlights and focuses in on one aspect of my psyche. There are plenty more aspects, but these are the predominant ones.

Again, thank you. It warms my heart to see someone else appreciates this. I haven't written anything in quite a while, but I'm actively seeking inspiration. I hope I find it.

I have no interest in living a balanced life.
I want a life of adventure.” | Chris Guillebeau

Wow! I love this! It really shows how the inner contours of each persons mind works. That we are not all the same. I love the emotion and uniqueness put into this! Please continue to write, I would love to see more of your work!
