Inside Out

This week's Poetry Stretch at Miss Rumphius Effect is to write something inspired by this image (the image at Tricia's is viewable larger if you click on it... please do so - my poem makes more sense I think when you see the picture larger...)

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

So - here is my effort...

Inside Out

Inside looking out
Dreaming, wishing, hoping.

Outside looking in
An outcast, a stranger
Unable to meet the
Vanilla sweet ideal.
Still dreaming, wishing, hoping.

I like yours too, especially 'vanilla sweet need'. That says so much.

Nice! I like the repetition and the longing here.
