    dotsil silensiodots

    This story has multiple endings
    Of which I am only one:

    You are the space
    Between the fingers
    Of god and his adam
    On the Sistine chapel ceiling--

    The epitome of all
    half arsed attempts
    To reach out
    To someone giving their all
    To be near you

         And you are a door
         To throw rocks at;
         A letterbox
         Of unanswered apologies

         Muttering something
         about the way we accidently
         S t u m b l e
         Across ourselves and the way things could
         Have been
         Had variables been different

              You are secrets
              Relayed in shorthand
              In attempt to retain
              Or feign mystery

    And I am the held breath
    The craned neck
    The anticipation

      i like your lower case god and adam and upper case sistine because that tells me what mood you were in when you wrote this.

    that things madeth by man are seeable-touchable and yes, if you like, hittable hardable too.

    maybe you would write it differently now but i daresay that it would be just as eloquently put.

    you have always (it seems to me) been able to articulate a yearning well and this is no exception: this expresses a yearning in the shape of a neck, whose cords would strain more yet if only. if only...

    and it seems that you are all taken care of - and variables are by their very nature different...

    take care doll,

      What's interesting about this piece, JD is, that, like Isabella said, it feels like a lost of breath. You know what I think. Maybe everyone knows about that feeling, you know? The one where it feels like you might be falling, and somehow your beath catches. Maybe just before or just after you've seen something absolutely glorious. What I want to say it that, you capture that feeling so well, with the spacing, and especially the title of the poem, that I think anyone who reads this may relive this. I don't wanna be as arrogant as to speak for anyone else, but that's my thought on it. I think this is glorious. Like the catching of a breath before sunset.

    The way you opened up was really eye catching in my perspective

    "This story has many endings, of which I am only one"

    I figure that is because everyone goes through these "scenarios" time and time again. heh.

    I enjoy the ideas behind, I figure it wasn't just one, but more.


    "You are the space
    Between the fingers
    Of god and his adam"

    This part I found it a bit confusing.

    You are what stands between man and heaven?
    Perhaps I just don't get it.

    " You are secrets
    Relayed in shorthand
    In attempt to retain
    Or feign mystery"

    This, by far, is my favorite part. It reminds me of the whole you make yourself seem what you want to be seen as. And of course, we all have secrets.

    Overall, I enjoyed this read, very much. Now I know why so many people take their time to read your works, you have great talent, but I'm sure you already know that.

    Keep up the good work and hope to see much more from you in the near future

      1. Be honest.

    I think the framework is there, certainly this is good, but there's something about the balance between what is incredibly complex thought and what is simple statement,

    and it's not even about those two things,for me it's about the lines that lie between those two planes.

    I think perhaps only these two lines:

    In attempt to retain
    Or feign mystery

    ... if you could ratchet them up to the level of the distance between god/chapel thought
    then everything else would sit just right.

    i was excited to read this.
