Forever Within

I watched the rain Pouring forever, Down, It seemed. Later, the Sun, The moon and stars Still – silently glowing, Forever it seemed. My body occupied their space, Evolving thoughts traveled elsewhere Trying to connect together Brilliantly glowing alone – apart. I watched what was there Trying to understand a connection Senseless frigid thoughts of oddity Fitting inside was not possible, again Always outside – where it isn’t cramped Enough room to feel the stillness - usually. I had no face. Timid. I Was indescribably blending in with whiteness Erased by the superficial nothingness of time and space Where people resided with their clothes of jewels, gold and furs. Naked and exposed I lived amongst the forgotten few by the many Clad with my pure innocent unrefined rags of thoughts, ideas and brittle crumbs Leftovers for the “fairy tales of once upon a time” … the soulful ones Definable only by the inside of myself from within myself. Separated by inevitability, not by choice, maybe but still outside. I remain condemned by who I am To live within Inhaling the warmth solitude of self-expression Forever within. © Charles H Keys, 2012. All Rights Reserved

Wow very US ;) I can see why you like my poetry..we are in the same flock if not birds of a feather..the only constructive question I have to ask is on form/layout ..why? capitalize the first word of every line? I know in the long past lots of poets did this..I do not do this because I do not consider than avalid reason ;)..do something [in life or your writing FOR a reason] Light & Love

every work to me is not related to any others - they are all different - form, format, capitalization, punctuation etc. or not are relative to my thought process at the time of creation. i never know how it will look until i have completed it - does that make sense. my only consistency is i like variation, non restraint, aka freedom of thought. thanks for the comments.
