    dotsRust On My Heartdots
    -------------------------------------------


    I can't look at a 74' Ford F250 without a tear coming to my eye.
    Or watch The Little Rascals without a pang of grief striking my heart.
    Even the smells I thought once to be utterly grotesque;
    Like chewing tobacco mingled with stale beer,
    can bring a crooked grin to my face.
    The scent of used motor oil and old transmission fluid,
    breaks me down faster then a Nicolas Sparks novel.
    It's surreal;
    knowing you're gone.
    It's been years,
    but the pain sits in the ground of my soul like steel.
    It may oxidize,
    though the rust will taint the surrounding earth forever.

      i like how you pull the reader in, not only describing your feelings but preserving the memories that keep him in your heart forever. a very moving piece with a unique personal touch.

      wow this is potent.

    especially like the lines about the motor oil and transmission fluid scent breaking you down faster than a nicolas sparks' novel..

    and my girlfriend and i were just talking about his novels and his sensitivity in what he writes.


    so much to like here...if i did favs, this would be one.

    great ending too..although i think you meant "steel"
    "though the rust will taint the surrounding earth forever"

    what an imprint!
