VAGUENESS by SOSO QIPSHIDZE
This is not blank verse nor a short story....I'm not Bob Marley and I'm not a provincialist rapper....I ain't no gangster and I'm not a tight lipped punk....I'm not drunk but I'm not awake....I don't like it when I sleep but I like it when I want to sleep....I'm not kind but I'm not wicked....I don't like you and I don't love you too....I don't always want to live but I don't wanna die....People don't love me....they don't hate me neither.....I'm somewhere in the middle and I'll be there all my life....Here, where I'm at is a huge and beautiful color wheel....I'm sinking in vagueness. Here there are huge spaces and beautiful colors.
