Idiosyncratic This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Thoughts are mistaken for many plots.
When you think, others think not.
Ideas are tarnished as you soliloquize.
Eccentric as you know it, you realize;
Cynical but sweet gestures relax your mind
and interpreting language that does not rhyme.

Uncanny is the technique you depict your thoughts.

You’re lovely; however, your intelligence is your fault.

Oh, good choice of words. My favorite lines is this one: 'When you think, others think not' It says a lot. I love how you are able to express intelligence as a fault and not a good traid (because, really, it can be a bad trait of not used well). Now, sincerly, you are a great writer. And I love the tittle.

Bye!

I'm breathless. This poem is like a mirror for me, showing my own faults. It uses phenomenal vocabulary; I'm just absolutely blown away.
