Postage Stamp

Every little single piece of every single little thing
Means nothing in comparison to this giant ball of string
A bee sting on a mountain and a neuron in a head
One plus none is nothing when seven eight nine instead

A pebble in an ocean and a planet in the space
That hovers over head with tears dripping down its face
Laughter in a bottle and teardrops on the ground
Mouths gobble greed while ears spit out the sound

One crack joins another in a map of fractured bones
That clatter in a pattern that sits on smiling stones
A flame inside a passion and an eyelash in the breeze
Try and lick your elbow while triplets trample threes

Onwards over backwards while frontwards sits and sulks
Fingers trace the bygones while mind buys it in the bulk
Caution thrown with salt and forethought thinks again
Wind in mouth, eyes are wide and conscience canít complain

Every little single piece of every single little thing
Means nothing in comparison to this giant ball of string
And reason flees the scene in a crippling of cramp
And Iím quite happy all alone on my little postage stamp.

My eyes grew wide as I read this. (Difficult to do since I'm Asian.)

In fact, I'm going to go back and read it again...

Still love it!!! Library dude.

There is power in the pen.

Thanks guy. (: I was really pleased with this. I'm not even sure why, haha.
