Critiques


I love the emphasis in the first stanza, how putting the words "Much" and "Away" on the next line really made the voice pop. Instead of...


I have to disagree with the other critiques when they say the horse looks too flat/dark. I find that it is an interesting contrast that...

This too shall pass
It's ok to feel grief
sadness
remorse
Negative feelings,
it's ok.
Don't try to escape.
Feel
Accept
Let it wash over you like a wave
And,
just like a wave,
it will ebb and fade;
And this too shall pass.

Burnt
Some forget coal burned
carmine, vermillion and gold;
aglow until snuffed

Welded
Blue collar
Black lungs
Golden heart
White fingertips
curl beneath
blueberry wings
pulling pink lips

rosy cheeks blush
An amber ember
kindles carmine
azure accents flare

melded hearts
once two, now become one

Literature
All Marked Up
Some of these scars
on my heart
are marked with a Sharpie
And they're so damn dark
they'll always
be a part of me
No matter how hard
or even how
smartly
I try to wipe
or hide inside
they still spite me
And every slight will
likely blight me
So when we fight
please try
to write lightly.

Withdrawal Song
I
don't like to be alone
sleeping in my own
bed
without your head
next to mine
or my spine
tucked against your tummy
it's not funny
it's not alright
to spend the night
on my own
all alone
in my bed
you're in my head
crawling up my spine
I miss what's mine
I feel a funny
slump in my tummy
I'll be alright
it's just one night
all alone
get out of my own
head
and go to bed
I'll be just fine
relax my spine.
It's not funny
the clock is running
out of time
"Rest your head,
you'll be just fine.
It's just one night.
You'll be alright.
You'll be alright.
It's just one night.
So goodnight.
Good night.
Good
night."

Fantasy Addict
Always been craving dreams
exorbitantly fantastic -
getting ho-hum instead.
Just kept lynching my neck
on phantasms,
questioning reason,
surrendering to
underwhelming, vexatious weight,
expecting yearned-for zeitgeists.

Literature
Woolgathering
I get
exceedingly
excited
when
exiting
existence
I'm
patronizingly
persistent in
resisting the
resistance of
reality
Misanthropy;
my
absentee
mind in
atrophy
I can't
guarantee the
authenticity of
any
apology
at the
apogee of my
absentminded
woolgathering.

Sand
Stretched body, spanned
beneath hands - warm
as sand beneath
the sun's sweet kiss.
Time stands still, yet races past moments like this.
It slips through hands;
sugar sands drift
unplanned, escape
this lovescape, fade
into memory, culminate and cascade.

Literature
Dust It Off
Where is the woman I once knew, who shunned
her heart she kept on broken dusty shelves?
Piecing together self, now into selves.
Now serendipity has left her stunned,
into an unknown mystery she delves.
Where is the woman I once knew, who shunned
her heart she kept on broken dusty shelves?
Within the dusty glass it starts to thrum:
a reverie, a romance now indwells,
a feeling once she thought that she had quelled.
Where is the woman I once knew, who shunned
her heart she kept on broken dusty shelves?
Piecing together self, now into selves.

Literature
(Y)ours
I delight in
    strong warm hands
sending shivers
    down my spine;
fingers branding
    firm yet soft
declarations
    that you're mine.
Lost; I'm falling
    into you
Strong arms caress
    pull me near;
You tell me I
    am precious,
kiss my eyelids,
    hold me dear.
Whispers brush past
    throat hollows;
over soft skin,
    gooseflesh pours.
My spine arches,
    body writhes,
proclaiming that
    I am yours.

Literature
Pickpocket (c)
Full moon,
that jaundiced eye
staring down
at us,
unblinking.
Your breath
freezing
in my hair
and
half-cocked
promises
dancing in
sepia-toned
whispers.
This glimmer
of something fey;
of a fleeting, flitting thing
that might be
some kind of love;
glimpsed only
out of the corners
of eyes,
in flickering shadows
on starlit nights.
Perplexing peripheries,
fantastic phosphenes
dancing
just beyond reach
intangible as your words,
your whispered pledge;
your pretty mouth
spouts inanities,
but I'm not listening to the sounds.
too distracted
by your sleight of hand;
when
did you pluck
my heart from my chest
to slip into your pocket?
And how is it
that I'm strung here,
hypnotized
and dangling like
a locket;
with pretty pictures
tucked inside;
trapped because
you've locked it?

Interests
It's been a really long time since I've participated in any collaborations. I just sent a couple of random launches out, but wouldn't it be cool if a group had a collab launch event? Where everyone submits a collab launch to the group and whoever is sparked by the launches can then note the originator and spin off into greatness? It'd be neat to see how many directions a launch might take. 

I don't run/moderate any groups though, so maybe I'll just mention some people here that might make this into a reality?
