one two more sometimes too many at a time falling tumbling holding me together weighing me down I struggle to round them up and put them back in place but somewhere along the line I lost the cover of the puzzle and I canít seem to find where they fit so I stuff them where ever just to keep from losing something I might someday need but the mirror shows the me that is the result of my puzzle piecing my lack of goals my anger strutted walk though life and I donít think thatís what the picture on the box is supposed to look like so its no wonder that I put a corner piece where my heart should go and now it hurts when it beats against the jangling angles I have cornered inside of me and even my poems are suffering along side with the inside of me they wander and lose sight and have no end no beginning and I canít put them together right in the middle eitherÖ and another piece falls
Corazon* This is superb!! Every line drew me in deeper and left me with a feeling of understanding. I don't see your poems suffering at all!! Poetry is a chance to work it all out and perhaps make things fit how they are supposed to....my own puzzel is missing a few edge and middle pieces as well Well done and thank you for sharing this piece!!
You are so creative! I enjoyed every line of this poem, getting closer and closer to the meaning. Unique expression of how jumbled up we sometimes feel. Let me tell you, I think you've got it together more than you know - the way you've put it into words shows you are really in touch with yourself. I enjoyed this one - lots! Lori

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance - I hope you dance. song by LeeAnn Womack ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
thanks all *big soft smile* my life is so jumbled these days that I was surprised to see responses from PIP in my mail, I barely rememeber last week and the writing of this...so again....thank you, your responses sit kindly and softly in my heart
this poem touched me more than you can imagine...i sometimes feel like this too...like nothing fits where it should anymore and i have no clue as to what the next day is going to hold for me. you captured your feelings both brilliantly and beautifully in this piece...I really admire your style of writing! great poem!!
take care, amy
