Pretty sure I got the right place. :bye1:

Anyways, I wrote this a few months back and just recently edited it. Yes, it rhymes, and yes, it was for school. Sorry. :crazy:

Here goes!

I Understand

I watch the mouse's haunting green eyes
Looking at me as if it were still alive.
It starts to pry at my mind's eye
And I begin to understand.

There is a beast within me
Like a pack rat in a landfill, its eyes wander with glee.
It knows me in and out, for there is nothing it cannot see.
The beast is me, and as it ravages my mind, I begin to understand.

The knife lay on the table,
The beast is out of its stable,
My life before was but a fable...

...for now, I understand...

You used fable improperly.

Orly. Well, I doubt it matters much, but next time I'll try to make it rhyme with some other, more sensible word.

No he didn't. It fits perfectly fine. Even if it had been a little off, people around here need to learn to to give writers a little poetic license.

Overall I don't think much of it. It's not anything special, that is. But for what it is, I guess it's nice. I really got the mood at the end of it and I liked that. The repitition of "I understand" works well. The rest of it is just eh, alright. I hate the use of 'my mind's eye'. And no one line in particular really strikes me.
