Summer In Snow

Underneath the street lamp's light,
I finally saw myself...
alone and underrated;
a lit match in my mouth.

Where to start? The beginning,
before my red lips cracked.
I caught myself attached to you,
but now I'm over that,

or maybe you're replaced
by ashes on my tongue.
Gray angels in my toothpaste
match my smokey lungs.

That was a summer in snow.
I built a sad mistake,
a snowman with your frozen eyes.
All night, I stayed awake

listening to "Made Of Glass."
You know me way too well.
I hate how you can look at me
and automatically tell:

I'm a liar, a bad habit,
and know what I won't say.
But I guess you couldn't see it when
my closing eyes said "stay."

The noose has been unraveled.
I'm better off alone,
'cause once I found that emptiness,
I found the perfect home.

Thought, "you're the only one,"
but now I know you're not.
I told you, I replaced you with
the match; so dead, so hot.

Underneath the street lamp's light,
I finally saw myself...
alone and underrated;
...a picture in my mouth.

  Great piece. It seems to me like it conveys opposite emotions. Feelings of hope and dread, saddness, happiness, disappointment and relief. I think that's what I like most about this poem. I found the rhythm to be a little off though, but maybe I'm not reading it right. Or maybe it's just one of those poems that are better read aloud. Either way, I still liked it a lot and hope to read more like this soon.

  "grey angels in my toothpaste" hehe - what an original line! I can honestly say that I have never heard that one before :) I really like it, this who piece was very good - I liked the htought of this person thinking that the other person was the only one for them, and then having come to the realisation that they weren't. It was very, very nice!

  I love this piece. Every bit of it. I love the mood you got across.
The fourth stanza was my favorite. And I adore this line, "I built a sad mistake,
a snowman with your frozen eyes."
Great job. Write on.

  Hm...not sure I like the last line...the word "picture" just doesn't FEEL right to me...does it to you?

I would search, instead, for a word that gives the reader a sense of a foul, burnt taste in the mouth...something that would give the impression of a charred residue...but I can't quite grasp what word (and it would have to be only one word or the flow would be ruined...) would be perfect...

You'll have me pondering this one now...LOL

Very good piece, otherwise...glad you reposted it!
