schizophrenia. by littleblueraccoon schizophrenia. by littleblueraccoon
"I heard echoes far less lonely than my mind,
but I'd heard you burst into flame.
Listening was always possible,
and usually, I could pretend it didn't exist."

Yay, another found poem! I tried to do a more creative design, but personally I think it looks a bit confusing. ^^; Also, it's sort of crooked and the quality is just...blech. My scanner is not so great. I got my idea for found poetry from other deviants, and the book is Beauty by Robin McKinley.

The fact that it's sort of confusing to read sort of adds to what it's about. I don't know if you have it or not, but I think everybody who has it can safely say that it can be confusing and scary, which this shows a lot.

I've heard that a lot, actually, and that's comforting to me because I wasn't 100% sure how readable it was going to be. ^^; To hear that it adds to the piece means a lot. I don't have schizophrenia personally, but it's a subject that I'm interested in. I read up on it a little before working on this. 

Thank you very much! :heart:

I agree it looks a bit confusing, but I thought that worked with the theme, and I found it easy enough to follow the path around. :)
Very nice!

It took me a while to figure out the pattern, but once I did I saw it immediately. This is very clever.

I did this yesterday, I think, and the art obviously isn't as flashy or decorative, but I think I've found a good poem. Thank you for inspiring me to do this.

As one familiar with schizophrenic tendencies, this makes perfect sense.

To a sane person, maybe not so much

I've never known anyone with schizophrenia, but I read up on it and this page in the book reminded me of it a little bit. I find the human brain to be intriguing.

Thanks for commenting! (:

I love found poetry! I would really like to try some myself, but it seems rather difficult O_o

I actually love the design. It kind of ties in with the title, you know?
