Black Sheep

I'm the black sheep
Is that hard to understand
I'm not like you
Excluded from your fun
The sun sets in my realm
It rises when the darkness is too light
Makes sense?
Neither do I 
I riddle you with the words I stumble upon
I ridicule you with my mystic
You come close
I mysteriously slip away
To deep
In your depth
I can not be
This world
Not real
All a dream to me
I'm weird
A little awkward
Not strange or misunderstood 
And taken for granted
Not a butterfly
Still a caterpillar
This black sheep
This beautiful duckling
This lone wolf
I am

    Perhaps just feeling a bit of seclusion. intelligent people, who tend towards introspection, often feel themselves to be on the outside looking in, but in reality.... perhaps you dont really want to be in their circle...Best wishes always, love and hugs, Catie :)
