  a definition, a point of existence meaning shape, or time, or why, or cause, purpose smiling and winking, shy behind eyes glazed from too much laughter or fear, both deriving from the same root, in this instance or one of many, unknown screaming, singing, whispering, luring. promise of future, past, a consequence, a question burning for both an answer and non-answer, too many meanings hiding and escaping in the same breath, seeking understanding and overlooking, no hoping just knowing, a world of silence, nonexistent though it is beneath the buzz and throb. do you hear what there is to be heard within hearing for a mind seeking? endlessly nothing encompasses something, or maybe the other way around, vice-versa, spinning off in new directions of subtlety and complexity making love to simplicity, a pulse of passions simmering below the surface representing seeing and seeking, words dripping and dying, mingling sweet smoke dissolving into the atmosphere, cool on burning skin. questions within answers contain answers to questions never asked, the beauty lying in the perfection of that which is not said or understood save in unexpected moments. time exists not at some times but often at others, careful to break reality or surreality as it pleases whomsoever it may concern though certainly precious few follow the application of principles inherantly prescribed by thoughts verging on dreams, separated by blurred lines of disbelief and fickle origins bordering on ludicrous. we spend countless lives within lives in deniable misconceptions, questioning and doubting worth constantly shading truth from eyes desiring a nonexistent mixture of everything and nothing, drowning true desire till greed fails and we are left as we were, will be, are, insatiable, wondering, words dancing in eyes and silence playing on lips. sigh purpose purposefully and without pretention, comfortably seeing beyond any revelations originating in intention.

This has a powerful message but the lack of proper grammar and punctuation made it very cumbersome to read. Try using capital letters at the beginning of your sentences and avoid the long run-on sentences and this would be a really good piece.

wow.....what can one say to that? how taoist perhaps? how sublime? how totally awesome, cool, words are so weak at expressing feelings, i thought this was just really really beautiful.
