    dotsWhat befalls thee?dots

    ... ...

    It was then I read the words
    Black ornaments of hollowness
    A message dark as an empty closet
    Whispered by silence.

    They spoke;
    We believe she is dead.

    In my mind, a simple thought
    Found its way to the labyrinth
    Behind the fallen moon
    Of hidden answers

    Am I dead?

    While unseen perhaps
    And unheard of
    The answer remains
    Simply hidden

      I have one problem with poems like these: This is well written from a purely verbal aspect, but because the symbols are so personal, I have no way of knowing if itís good or bad writing. I do know itís not good communication, which I believe should be one of the purposes of writing. Alteredlife thinks the frog is in the labyrinth. I think the labyrinth is in the mind and the frog is another, specific symbol Ėthe prince that will waken when kissed? Perhaps a past experience with a real frog? Perhaps a symbol of unconscious metamorphosis?
    The unanswered questions make a critique of this difficult. Its like judging how good meal is when you can only smell it, but not taste it.

      This is enigmatic and evocative. One part strikes me as not quite fitting: the frog. It doesn't connect with me. However, invoking the Labyrinth would lead me to suggest replacing "frog" with "bull" to make a clearer mind-association, likening a bull to the heart of the hidden question. Does that make sense?

    Overall, an interesting write. Concise and impactful.
