"Yet what is any ocean but a multitude of drops?"

The stitches on the blue couch
Stretch into tiny mountains that I climb when it's raining
Because I Can.

I have pennies
In a glass jar that clatter
On top of each other
And freckles on my eyelids
that I can't see when I blink
And I tell myself to smile when it's sunny
And to not start sentences with and
And to fill in silence with words
In ballpoint pens
That bleed onto the paper behind it.

Because I Care.

I care so much that I'll
Move to a nursing home with yellow wallpaper
And wrinkle the skin on my eyelids
And wear glasses so dusty I won't have
Excuses to see the weather.
And I'll buy thicker paper
And stuff white noise
In my ears.

And the blue stitches will
Blur into flat land
That I can't climb.

And really don't want to anymore.

The language, the simplicity, the symbolism, the beauty, the detail, the abstractness of it all - it takes my breath away. Please keep on writing, making our word a little less grey.

The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are usually the ones who do.

I feel like that came from a book filled with Emily Dickinson's poems. She is one of the best poets known to man and I have a feeling you will be too. AMAZING job, please keep writing!!!!(:
