Its been a while since my last write. But I just wrote this while Fiona Apple's songs were my Muse. This poem might be confusing for some. But somewhere in my twisted mind it makes sense. LOL Enjoy guys.

---------------------------------------------------

See it. Soft as snow.
delicate as meadow birds
Grace across the stage
Silent without a word

Silhouette smile
Hidden behind darkness veil
No glimmer in his eyes
No hope to prevail

He'll dance a dance
Marvel you with his twirls
But you can't see shadow puppet
Writhe or unfurl..

under pressuring eyes..

Tell me if you notice
For he's hidden it well,
The glowing lights
of his personal Hell.

Look closely kiddies
As he dances for the kings
Don't you see it too?
That little white hope..
..pulling the strings?

Maybe its just me..

Not confusing to me, my friend. I think it's excellent and I see exactly where you were going with it....and you did it well.

Me too Zach, I "got it."  Your poetry is always very well thought out.

            
Happy Holidays
