They call me mad.
They say i have no right
to toss words like salads--
garnished with seasonings
of tears and emotion,
sprinkled with perfect rhyme
and a dash of meter
to bring out the flavor--

And they call me drunk.
They sadly shake their heads
as they watch me stumble--
tripping over dangling
part i ci ples and my pen,
slipping in ink puddles
left from yesterday's pain
'til i'm soaked to the skin--

They say i'm naive.
They say my dreams and hopes
should not be placed in words--
but words are an escape
words allow me to fly
to new heights of wonder
i discover myself
rising above it all--

and i am not afraid.

Go, Karla!! Enjoy the adrenalin rush and KNOW that he who dares wins... have to quote good old Browning again: "Ah, but a man's reach exceed his grasp or what's a heaven for?"... you take us - and yourself! - there, Lady! Write on: this is a glorious lift-off. Nothing to be afraid of, girl! :)) TY Kate xx

I have to agree with Jerry, in part, as you have risen above
your own talents once more.
Excellent piece of work, Karla!

You, my dear, have been on the fast-track to greatness ever since you got back from that vacation. What happened down there? Did you sell your soul to the devil for the price of stardom? LOL Just kidding about that, but you are en-ter-gized!!!
