Thought provoking, TrueBrit. You know I'm a fan of your poetry. However, I must insist, no cold, empty stare from you; you deserve better and
frankly, I don't think I could stand to read those dead-visioned poems.
So, get on with it, man... You know I'm in your corner!
Your poem sounds like the end of my last marriage.
I hope no one EVER pushes you to the point of apathy.
That 'cold and empty stare' usually has a lot of pain behind it.
My wish for you is a life of love and happiness...and a future poem whereby the last line denotes a 'warm and happy grin'.
This is one of the ways I prevent myself getting to that point, by getting it out on paper metaphysically speaking. Its either that or thousands of
computer sprites will die. Hell, they might die anyway, but I like writing
I find it terribly coincidental that I chose to read this out of anything on your list to read.
How 7 lines can have such an impact is just astounding. I feel as if I could have written this myself as the lines seem to come straight from my own
thoughts. But I believe anyone could relate to this poem and therein lies your success in writing it:-)
