it implodes on the walls of your skull and slides, sickly off your tongue like the body of a slug. when it hits the floor it is not quiet, not heavy nor dull but sharp as a slap and totters out of the room suddenly, they are disgusting and you are ill. there is no more room for regret, washed away by the slime coming out of your pores. the fault is yours

Human Nature
     When you are young, they will treat you with the softness of spring. They will guide you through the winter winds and over snowy hills, admiring the brilliance of your midday innocence; pulling daisies from the earth just to place them in your hair. And they will whisper to each other of how beautiful you are.     When you grow older, they will treat you with the indifferences of autumn. They will urge you from the complacency of your own fleeting fulfillments, and they will watch your brilliance fade with the swiftness of the sky. You will shed your fragile childhood with the colors of the trees, and you will learn to face

your use of imagery to convey such different but parallel themes is amazing... again, the use of off-beat punctuation works perfectly for this style... i love it! :worship:

poetry about poetry is a hard thing to write well, and a rare thing to completely astound. I also love language with all of its inaccuracies & interpretative idiosyncrasies, and I am astounded! I love the visual usage, another hard concept to pull off without seeming self consciously clever, works here because of its connection to the metaphor right down to the "o". vividly apt, your vision of the muse keeps me rapt, around your poetic finger.Heart

whew. kinda hot in here, isn't it? ;) (Wink)

i know exactly where you're coming from. robert heinlein, one of my favorite novelists, described writing quite often as the most masturbatory of professions -- you're alone, trying to affect yourself, and god help anyone who knocks on the door!
