My best Buster Keaton

So awkward, so strange
never feeling quite right
in this skin
Silly and clumsy
I fall my way
through the room
like a jack in a box
are you laughing?
are you mad?
at my insufferable mistakes
I can’t help but make,
with souls too big for my feet
a heart sewn to my sleeve
with weak threads
spills over
emotions unseen
where tears would have been
are eyes
that seem to tell the story
if you care to know
where words would fill
in the blank, is my stare
where silence is golden
and sepia is my tone
is found in depth
of these sorrowful, playful
brown eyes
lips that only inch
to the side
reveling this sly snear
unknowinly drawing you in
without words
victory
