43 (who?)

Out of place,

Lost in space,
                       What is my purpose?


I feel this same way
                                When I wake up and draw the curtains.

Overshadowing questions,

Very few suggestions
                                    But as usual nothing is for certain.

Living in the unknown,

Out of my comfort zone
                                     I bet I'm not the only one to have this burden.

The format is intriguing. Not many poets experiment with moving the margins from the left side. I like how the offset lines give the reader a feeling of being disoriented. In a way this helps move the reader toward the last line.

I will suggest that you get rid of the commas in each left margin line. They are somewhat distracting and interrupted the flow of the thoughts.

:-) It's easy to get a hand on using punctuation if you think of commas, colons or semi-colons as pauses. If you read the poem out loud and the pause feel strange chances are the commas don't need to be there.

Now periods are different because they (along with question marks and exclamation points) not only work to end-stop lines but can also give a different tone and emotion to a line that you originally intended.

(I think I will stop there, though. I tend to babble).
