[i]What are you thinking?[/i]

You take

no pleasure

in this knowledge of

[u]Home sweet Home,[/u]

of owning & beginning

&

flying high & tall & proud

through these dark

clouds.

Your very own

castles in the sky,

white & rolling in this

robin-blue ocean

of wind & lost sounds.

I could stay here

forever

suspended, no

noise but

shadows

clapping on my ears.

13,000 feet

in the air

& still, it's

like you were

[i]born[/i]

to be here,

floating on your palace

of steel & stone &

lonely eyes

gazing timidly into

a frightful soul.

I wish you had told me.

I wish I could share

this with you, beside me,

locked in & sleepy-headed,

ice clacking in your mouth.

Looking through

scratched plastic,

seeing shadowed,

bubbly shapes

break

through soft, misty shores,

I'm not lonely.

I want to preserve

it, store it with

a click & a flash

in my mind.

I want you to

paint it, with

pasteled colors

& underrated strokes,

blending this world into

Perfection.

I want to know

what it's like to remember

a thought

exactly the way

it began, the way it was.

How faulty my wiring is.

I want to be

suspended

in air like those little puffs of

water & forgotten words.

I want to know

how it feels

to be colored by

sun & starlight.

This creates

new horizons for you,

giving you

see-through

stepping stones to

another continent,

another life of

belief & mourning.

I want to watch it

grow & fade.

I want to keep it

the same

forever,

in light islands

& dark seas

of reflection.

I want you to love it

too, to scream

at it in misplaced

courage,

to

Understand it, in a way

that's incomprehensible to

me.

But,

What are you thinking?

Hello! So, I'm quite excited to meet you all and I'm hoping that I can get some awesomely gorgeous criticisms from such talented writers as yourselves.

And now, I would like some help.

I'm having a bit of trouble trying to figure out how to space out paragraphs, so my poems can be more comprehensible and easier to read instead of one long unbroken column. If any of you have a suggestions, please just answer in a review. I would sincerely appreciate it!
