       I wrote this about a specific type of personality, most of my work is about chracteristics of others, and moods, personalities...that I have seen in others that I have studied.

    We all know this personality, I don't want to give it away, I'm sure you'll find it out. And I'm sure anyone who reads this will get something different from it, so let us leave it at that.

    Critique it as harshly as you wish, I do not care.

    Music Box

    Dancing to a silver music box;
    Passing coins, for the grand coin toss.
    The tinkling music, of metal clicks,
    Blow out a candle, light it never again.

    Show up for the chorus;
    But sing out of tune,
    For all to hear,
    The reasons that it bothers you.

    Bending nails, to make the house;
    Making trails, for those to get lost.
    Only a coquette once said; only a small one,
    But a deceit filled head.

    Run from the light,
    As you always do;
    Take the side of the right--
    And we'll follow you.

    The days ahead:
    For you..
    No more.
    What lies ahead;
    Is a date set in stone.

    Your icy feel,
    Your cold heinous heart;
    Are left to shame,
    I give you a sincere thought.

    About the times,
    Sitting; watching you.
    Before you were gone---
    I already knew.
    The ethereal hands, and transient face,
    Seeing it all, it was too late.

    And as for, the silver box,
    Let down your hair, and silver locks.
    Dance alone, to silver clicks--
    A fluttering heart: left bewitched.

      I really enjoyed this. The subtle nuances of meaning both dark and shiny, tinkling like little coins forgotten in a coat pocket. Hmmm, maybe they spin around on the floor before collapsing as they fall out and roll under the counter, never to be retrieved. Never to sound again. I think the poem itself can probably be improved, but you seem capable enough, so I'll leave you to it then...

      I have to agree that this is a wonderful piece...please go back and take another look at the third line of stanza three...I questioned if you meant that as a quote or not..

      This one was simply outstanding, I just can't get words out to explain it, and words are my life so it's quite an accomplishment. THis is taking a little trot down faves lane, most defintely. Amazing stuff, keep it up!

      Wow, this was really good. I liked it a lot. I look forward to more. I kind of got quite a few personalities/moods from this, so you're right: people will get different ideas.
