Words. So beautiful, so necessary. and yet, they become superfluous. Words flutter and swirl around me like little flurries of snow. Some of them I hate, such as flail, spill, coarse, stinted. I have favorites too. Crimson, melancholy, grotesque, chaos, shiver. Words that are melt-in-your-mouth sweet, and other words, that puncture your tongue with bitterness. Sometimes I don't have the words I need. I write and write and write, but I can't write enough. I wish I could use words like Poe, to paint in the sky with sentences that drip, drip, drip with passionate horror. If only. Instead I sit, writing all my words, my insignificant thoughts, for no one to see. Shall I introduce myself?I am No One of Importance, and I live Somewhere I Don't Belong. I suppose, in a way, I am a ghost.

    Oh, I loved this. Very good! I congratulate you on your choice of repetition and alliteration. The imagery is also spectacular! Keep it up and you may become better than Poe! :)
