[440] Know Your Dreams, Know Thyself

I am what I end up not saying⁣⁣⁣⁣
I am what I end up not thinking⁣⁣⁣⁣
I am what evades the sight⁣⁣⁣⁣
I am what you do not read between the lines⁣⁣⁣⁣
I am.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Between the lines, I breathe paradoxes⁣⁣⁣⁣
Between the words, I squiggle for realisations⁣⁣⁣⁣
Between the days, I try to evade thinking⁣⁣⁣⁣
Between the nights, I dream my evaded thinking⁣⁣⁣
Between you & me ⁣⁣⁣⁣
I am ⁣a collage of my misunderstandings⁣⁣⁣⁣
Between you & me⁣⁣⁣⁣
I will be ⁣the interpretation of my dreams


NaPoWriMo Day 21: Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that, like this one, uses lines that have a repetitive set-up.

They say you need 21 days to build a habit. Is writing really a habit for us now? This poem is a return to finding complexity in simplicity for me. That is why it looks so simply written. Hope you like it and keep on writing!
