A Pencil World

A pencil world, there are marks everywhere I’m formed by some pencil streaks on paper She lives on this paper, a grand image Standing on some raggedly made passage Lines to form the walls and shadows abound I see myself in strange footage around Seeing everything in only line form Crafts mastery in circular reform I can sense she’ll approach with her strange arms And aligned with pieces of pencil charms This page envelopes me, confines me more My brain still functions, not sure what I’m for My world is a bunch of stray pencil marks Drawn onto a paper as some remarks
