I … like … never … um … met … ­someone …
who … could … uh … think … so … much …
and … like … say … hmm … so … little …
that … I … er … saw … no … point … to … it …

… it … sounded … like … m-o-n-o-t-o-n-e …

I never met someone
who could fake it so well
and fail so miserably
that I stopped believing.

i really liked how you could say different things but all relating to the same thing, bad conversation with no soul in it

I think that this poem expresses plenty of emotion in a fresh angle that is raw to the eyes, but not in an entirely bad way at all. A person can hear the poet's words in a mimicry of the subjects', and the two blend together quite well. Overall, very unique, and I loved it. Keep 'em coming!

This is wonderful. I love how each section SHOWS the way it's describing the talking. And at the end, all is confusion, until the last word. The simplicity of the last word's plain font is kind of cool. The way you wrote the poem makes it so much more powerful... Excellent!
