Had I had part of heart for me to die in fragments, I believe, I would have died once here and now in praise of the exquisite aestheticism that is so intriguing that mind does not want to come out of the dream.
I pick the gem as usual and the gem which I found here is "Red as heartache on a tired page "
I see it from a very different angle and She in your poem is definitely not a woman to me, for I see the aspects which no woman can possess.
Yes, this poetry must have brought herself before the mind of the creator to weave a web of thoughts, sometimes comforting and sometimes troubling.
I believe that a writer's, and especially a poet's, journey is more than presenting the personal experiences and past which he or she has gone through but to join threads so that something unique could be formed to solace the dying embers which must have been on the verge of extinguishing after a long tiring journey.
God bless you, sir.
I see the other side of the poet here, definitely not Walter.
Walter, sometimes I get the impression that we've walked the same streets, done the same things, with the same people, in the same places.
That is almost troubling. Almost, but not quite.
Thank you once again.
I like the form here. I too have read it more than once, just to grasp it all. This is so intriguing. Sometimes I feel like this,
"So it is as I cry in the darkness
No candles left burning in windows"
I can relate to:
Eyes see horror
Thanks for sharing.
I've spent many interesting minutes... studying this poem. As usual, my mind skims around the edges, puts different lines together, trying to find similar patterns. Why? Just because it's entertaining as all get out, I suppose.
I Love watching (reading) your style- even "if" I miss the bottom line meaning by a country mile or fifty. Just guessing, that probably happens to more than just...me. I'm betting the rest enjoy it as well, even when, they can't make heads or tails out of it. Watching the words roll from one side of the poem - to the other.
Why the silence? I believe we're all hypnotized. You can snap your fingers and wake us all up, anytime now.
As usual, thanks for giving us something to ponder about.
"Lolita," "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof," "God's Half Acre," "Peyton Place," and more. Many more, including Biblical and historical literature. Put 'em in the pot, add in some of Everyman's stuff, and the child still suffers.
Takes a writer's courage to present this kind of write, my friend.
