So coldly amusing
The casual risk looming ominously
Why am I so out of touch
A thousand tiny pinpricks tormenting my psyche

To take that chance
A halfhearted leap of faith
My doubts weighing heavily upon me
Making progress so ponderously slow

The image within that polished surface
My face, my knowledge, my soul
Only the outermost layer of the armor I'd built up
A harsh carapace coated with sharp filaments of frost

I know I'm cold
A lazy defense against a passionate heat
The violent kind
What they'd see is only the clearest reflection

Out of my control
My own distorted image
A gentle visage reflected in a cracked mirror
But not even tangible

A little piece inspired by the idea of taking risks, but accepting oneself before acting upon them.

Another amazing piece of poetry. :squee: You're really great at what you write. You give different dimensions to your speakers and you have excellent description that makes every piece easily visualized and understood by your readers. Great job!

Well, risk-taker this is another great poem. I like the mirror effect - it gives it a bit of an eerie feeling.
