Crazy?

Poem By chelle santos

sometimes, i think i'm going crazy.

not every girl's thoughts jump out of her head
between the grumbling hum of the air conditioner
and practiced dialogue of late night infomercials
[50% off if you're one of the first 20 callers! ]

not every girl has a smiling self on the inside,
a snickering self that comes out when the world sleeps
only to discuss the day's misfortunes
[preferably other people's]

not every girl reads letters like numbers
and uses numbers like crayons to draw disturbing pictures
just because it will upset or shock people.
[sometimes a headless girl is just a headless girl]

not every girl has a symphony of voices,
singing her thoughts in occasional disharmony
purely for her own amusement.
[a constant running commentary is good company]

it's true.

sometimes, i think im going crazy.

he'd like to know all about me,
so he starts picking me apart.
he scours files inside my head
for blueprints, maps and charts.

a page is too small a space,
for you to plead a lost case
& our words, too plain & trite
to aptly paint out your plight.

words - misspelled and mangled,

i can search your name on the net

in bytes & pixels up for the world to see.

tonight we celebrate the end of the world.
