I wrote this during math class while my teacher was going over the last test *snore*. Anyhoo, this is kinda about a guy I used to like. We had a falling out around Christmas (everything's better now) but while we weren't talking, this is what I felt like sometimes. Tell me what you think - I love feedback!

fatal sunbeam

a drop of intoxication
glistening addiction
for another sip, another
into this pool of
lethal ecstacy;
exhilirating pain
the warped beauty of death
slowly seeping through
every vein and artery
a shot of venomous pleasure
-a bullet to the brain -
there's no escaping
the sweet poison of your smile

  this one rolls off the tongue for sure.

drugs, poison, passion, longing... a valatile tincture indeed.

i like this. i keep reading it and trying to decide if the extreme juxtapositions are too extreme, or if they are perfect: "glistening, yearning, pleasure" vs. "death, poison, brain bullet". Crazy...

  It took me a few readings to actually get my mind to work right, and i still don't know what quite to say about it... but i've commented enough on your writing for you to know that that's always a good thing...I like my poetry hard to get...well...when i'm reading it anyways... okay, here i go...i'm gonna wing it this time and just write as a it comes to me

"a drop of intoxication
glistening addiction
for another sip, another
into this pool of
lethal ecstacy;"

I like that part...don't know why..just do.. very cool.. especially the "lethal ecstasy" part...i kind of feel that if you'd die for just one more "dip in the pool"

"there's no escaping
the sweet poison of your smile"

there's the clencher! it's almost like you're gonna die of sadness if you don't see this dude's smile, but if you're gonna be so overjoyed to have seen it again that you collapse...(I know i'm most likely outrageously off here!)
This is yet another great poem by none other than you! I love your stuff! and you do rock! ~Jeremy~

  The ending was a surprise...vibrant imagery and a rich sort of theme. This was well worked and darkly romantic

  very nice the metaphor and my fave part was the first:

a drop of intoxication
glistening addiction
for another sip, another

very well done

  Wow very vivid. I can actually almost feel the pain portrayed thru this poem. "Another dip
into this pool of lethal ecstasy" Great work and imagination. although the pain is very strong and I am glad to hear that the pain is gone.

  wow i felt as if you were watching me shooting heroin (because thats the image the description gave me).. it was very vivid. Then with the bullet shot to the head.. just awesome. And putting all this into a persons smile.. as if their smile is fatal.. was good. I feel like this all the time.. i want to die often because of someone beautiful i've just seen.. dont know if this makes sence sorry im spunning out
