Eight Winds.

-eight winds come to break u- ..lead your mind astray... -praise and blame deflate u- ..(but) light carries them away.. -fame and defamation- ..each follows one behind.. -famous for the moment- ..what's left of your mind..? -gain and loss defeat u- ..both are just the same.. -sanity come to meet u- ..u never knew her name.. -where u going on the morrow?- ..where were u today..? -recognize joy and sorrow- ..both have something to say.. -four winds come to greet u- ..lead u on your way.. -four more can defeat u- ..blow your soul away..

You spoilt what is an otherwise fabulous offering with the silly 'u' and the dots. I'm all for experimental works but when the finished item is detrimental to the poem then I have to ask "what was the point"? I'm sure you've written better than this, but this one does not encourage me to find out I'm afraid...
