Description: I don't normally do this but, this is a piece very dear to me and if anyone is going to read it, I'd like it to be understood.
For anyone that doesn't use Google, a soliloquy is a "monologue that represents a series of unspoken reflections." So, I'm chewing over these unspoken reflections that originate from "steps So high as the ceiling seems" in example- a step as tall as the ceiling would be pretty hard to get on top of. By "Serenity so many centuries away," I'm saying that I've not felt inner peace in what feels like lifetimes and in the next two lines, I'm asking for it. With "Slenderest of selections Surrendered," I'm saying that I've given up one of the smallest things I've kept for myself in this life. And the final portion depicts the mess that action has left me as.
An alliterative elegy.. -------------------------------------------
Screaming this silent soliloquy
That stems from steps
So high as the ceiling seems
Serenity so many centuries away
Any sense of centering to stay
Slenderest of selections
Surrendered, sending self to disarray
"stems from steps" was a line I liked because it felt like the words stuck togther when I read it.
The whole poem read like that really.
Very cutting imagery. It wasn't vivid, though; it seemed like it was always running with the words and then held together by the sounds of the words instead of the word's definition.
This is a very crytpic piece that I don't feel like I need to decipher to enjoy it at all.
This ended a little weird though, as if the plot line of sticky words and echoing phrases, just stopped at a dead beat. I think you could make it end a little more....smoothly for lack of a better word.
It felt like words were just bouncing off my tongue, all leading to this point that would make some huge splash it bounced off-
