Alice in Oz?

I feel like Alice in Oz....so confused.

I feel like im finding myself in the wrong fantasy.

In a world thats not supposed to exist...but not my own.

I know that its me carrying around these feelings

but i get so tired

that it feels like they are carrying me

people tell me I'm emotional

that i wear my heart on my sleeve

sleeveless shirts

might be a better choice for me

so many feelings

so little words

so hard to express

and be taken seriously

when so many feelings are rushing in and out of me

so often

i feel

so overwhelmed

by the possibility

that i am not more sensitive

but just stronger than most

to be able to handle all of the feelings

anger

lust

fear

longing

sad

hurt

criminal

natural

peaceful

resentful

caged

free inside

love

all of the time

all over me

i look at the ones who seem to feel nothing

but fine

when are you ever fine?

when are you ever not thinking?

my mind buzzes and my body rushes

so many things

i guess

that's just me

to take my own sensitivity

and press it so close to me

that i make it feel like a strength.

I love when people expect one thing out of me

and get something completely different.

they expect the witch

and get the scarecrow

and it seems to anger them

that i can be so unpredictable

but to me

that's just better writing.

Hey Pink, that was definitely an interesting read, as is most of your stuff. :) I came over from Facebook and I'm glad I did. :) It's always a pleasure to see what you bring forth and I continue to learn about you. You know where to find me, if you ever need me. :) Thumbs up! :)

Pink Um: You have described WE to the tea! Tea for two - me and you. You are not alone. The soundtrack is wonderlandful and I have not heard it before. Alice is in Oz; and in Wonderland; and in the LOOKing Glass; and in Narnia; and in all other places of fantasy where others fear to go - or fear to leave. You are INTREPID !!! Keep traversing great distances in time and space to the far reaches - as far as your wings can carry you and to the greatest heights that you may soar! You are a FREEBIRD! Never lay down in Dorothy's poppyfield at the gates of OZ where only the Good Witch Glinda can revive you with the freshness and purity of falling snow.

Dark twisted fantasies leaving light behind just so we wont see how beautiful our darkest imagination truly is. So dark, so deep, so you. Beautiful.

loved it!!!yes you can be the alice in my Oz!!! or the scarecrow, or the slippers, whoever the hell you want to be. thats the best kind of writing right here, the writing you dont expect, the writing that tells it like it is, bears the truth, no matter how cold and hard, and expresses YOU. we are very much alike indeed, your every word i could relate too, and ive felt the same way. i am also a very emotional person who wears her heart on her sleeve.
