       More than anything, this piece deals with a man entirely enthralled with his perfect match... but his own mental and emotional organism refuses to let him enjoy the intoxication for long and too soon experiences a "love hangover".

    dotsLiquor of the Minddots

    It’s always this way
    when nothing is everything.
    When the night carries these tones
    and breaths
    that wash away The Past’s
    empty, hanging heat,
    it feels again.

    How can one dispel
    this liquor of the mind?
    After all…
    when accord is ruptured
    with the sight of the first
    morning sun,
    only one can understand the
    subtle guile that comes
    with such fatigue.

    So now what?

    When the call is never heard,
    and the matchless
    wander the sea
    and the kiss
    of disparaging, riotous quests
    lies in a tepid pool of blood,
    what can save him?


    …or the contents of it?

      The free form of the poem is smooth and the breaks are natural (something I always have trouble with). The language too was incredible.

    comparing your description and your poem there is only a thread of connection. I'd like to see more put in about the two people and their interaction. To me the poem seems more like how a guy talked to a girl all night, got blown off and doesn't know how to deal with it.

    I'm not saying this isn't good, in fact, if I said that it would be a lie. But right now what you're trying to say and what you wrote do not match up!

    Best of luck my dear,
