Sole and Separate

Endless puzzles
Fill atmospheres-
Ones who solve
Are left alone
In peculiar worlds
Of warped insights
Crazy ramblings
And floaty dreams-
Sole and separate
Unique and unitary
Insanely insensitive-
But we could SeE.
Past petty rooftops
Sappy sunsets
Births and deaths-
Longer times
Fill our minds
As we picture
Infinite lights
Uniting in spirals-
Unknown to-
The simplistic
NormaL ones.
Our haze is glazed
Never tamed
Feelings, questions
Push and slam
Never pausing to breathe
Wonder overwhelms
While fascination bleeds
Laughter in the sky
Echoes through the trees
Do not know
Do not see
The PuzzleS
In the breeze

The capital letters are for unconventional emphasis that provokes the mind :) Thank you so much!

You are brilliant. I am so honoured to know someone as special, as smart and as skilled as you. This poem reflects the beauty of your brain.  I hope one day people will see what you see.

This is great, I really do like your work - I can relate. You use beautiful language. What do the capital letters signify? I really appreciated your comment on my poem - it meant a lot to me. Thank you.
