Shout! (Find Me)

Can you look past
My fleshy skin
And find the person
That's within?

Feathered, loud
And  very angry
It's really hard to
Describe me.

I dance, I cry
Sing and fret
You'll never guess,
So don't you bet.

I wear a mask
Behind you'll see
For that is me.

I'm such a riddle
I don't exist
So all you'll find
Is glowing mist

Heart of hearts
Dogs and birds
My true voice
Cannot be heard.

Shout, Shout!
See me now!
I've got to get
Across somehow.

Paint a picture
Find the clue!
I hope you know
I count on you.

Can't you see?
It's all right there!
But all you do is
Stand and stare.

Take a breath.
A hint I'll drop.
Maybe then
It's me you'll spot.

Among the mesh
Of feathered things,
Of tea cups, monsters
Guitar strings...

Amid the sky
Above the trees,
And past the swarm
Of bumble bees...

Beyond the dock
And past the beast
Behind the lizard scale
I creep.

Look past the skull
And see what's there
And just beyond
The maiden fair...

Look very closely,
And you just might see...
A very different
Side of me.
A poem for WC.

That's great Kiki! I love the pell-mell imagery you used. I've finally finished my Grad write up, finally!
