       I know I used "big words"; I like it that way.

    dotsThe Sadomasochism of Writingdots

    A white page slaps me in the face
    it boxes my ears
    saying, "Amy, bruise me blue."
    It knows my fetish for azure ink.
    "But I'll take black if you want to be harsh; I like it that way."
    I wonder why I put myself
    through this sadomasochistic dance
    day after painful day
    ripping ideas from my head
    with no anaesthesia
    arranging them in my ugly scrawl.
    But silencing the blankness
    is a brutal symbiosis,
    and the moment I stop
    the paper begs me for more.

      Sadomasochistic dance indeed! Oh,you captured it perfectly.
    Why we do it? Because if we didn't,we'd end up crazy. We need to exorcize the demons,spit them out in the form of words.
    Big words used didn't sound pretentious. :)

      This is an amazing write. And I say whole-heartedly. I really love the beginning. The page slapping you in the face. Talking to you. :) Very cute. Excellent piece.

      I get the idea that you're a bit frustated with writing lately. not that you write bad poems but you write about writing, how painful it can be and said on a few earlier ones you aren't keen on them.
    anyway this is a really good poem. it's original and sometimes I know how that feels. but usually I just write when something crosses my mind, no blank paper staring at me. the direct speech parts are a great touch and don't be afraid to use "big words". there's a dictionary if people don't know such words. if they're too lazy to look it up it's their problem.

      Somewhere there are a highbrow Bevis and Butthead sniggering, "Heh heh! She said anesthesia!"
    Go for the big words. Make multisyllabic an adjective that describes your diction.

      but is it the writing that's beating the crap out of you or you who's beating the crap out of the writing...?
    i think it's one of those situations where everyone/everything is being used. i guess the difference is what it's being used for.
    i dont think that made any sense at all..

      i know that feeling of being boxed in the ears by that paper! i like how you mentioned black ink, 'cause i know you mostly prefer blue... that desperate to write, eh?! lol! just kidding! i feel empty lately of words, but i can totally understand this, this feeling of it being sadomasochistic sometimes. it's an interesting look at your writing process sometimes. very uique, like you!

      good to be a victim to the passion of a good write - usually. as always good imagery, and creative.

    it almost feels like it needs one more line like "And I must succumb". on the other hand, the fact that it feels like it needs one more line makes it better since it "begs for more"!

      i'm liking this cuddle...seems a little humor mixed with the seriousness of it all...i like the image of you ripping the ideas from your head...very strong and the feeling was defently felt...the frustration...of having to write yet sometimes your not able to but the feeling is there taunting you...needing you to write..or the feeling of completness cannot be felt until the words are released written filling the blank page...your so passionate cuddles...wonderful write...purps
