       ok so this piece was put together by those who took part in my Experiment. So let me thank The Theologian glassgo Sandburg maquiladora, and lyteral_lou. I managed to use almost everything you guys contributed and I am so happy you took part and humored me! the first 2 and the last 2 stanzas I wrote with minor tweaking to the excellent stuff they gave me to work with. Kudos to you my friends I hope you enjoy our collaberation, feel free to rip me a new one if you think it sucks

    dotsCaffeine Inkdots

    Getting harder
    To let myself sleep
    So damn tired -
    I canít shake

    Iíll smoke another Cigarette
    Make another pot of coffee.
    So I can bleed
    The demons onto paper

    The words keep me company
    as they soak up the caffeine
    and I color the structure
    through half open, reddened eyes

    Thoughts keep churning
    inside this head
    drips of me
    on this paper I've bled

    But my hands shake as I write;
    squeeze the tears from my eyes.
    and as I look out the window,
    I can see the crumbling lies

    Bits and pieces
    present to past
    torment my head
    won't let me crash.

    Though I can't stop until they go
    canít die until they're slain
    this thing that haunts my life
    So many words of the immortal soul
    Captured on paper
    Soon kindling for the fire

    Yet now another night
    meets the death of new day
    bloodshot eyes bleed
    the demons

    Caffeine tears
    my ink of choice
    for countless words
    of sleepless nights

    Just enough
    for one more pot of coffee
    I may be out of cigarettes
    But the nightmares are always there

      For being a submission started with an experiment, it is a wonderful piece of work. I love the imagery in it and can relate to it at times. I'm definitely watching for more writes from you. You've got a talent there. Keep using it.

      Sounds like you had fun putting this together and for the most part it was compelling reading. I liked the metaphors you used very much. I felt like it maybe get a bit repetitive towards the 3/4 mark....just seemed to lose a bit of momentum, but the ending was classic and I enjoyed the style this was written in very much. Cheers Daniel

    These 2 stanzas were definately a great build up of suppense. Which of course, for me anyways led to *this* conclusion:

    Though I can't stop until they go
    canít die until they're slain
    this thing that haunts my life
    So many words of the immortal soul
    Captured on paper
    Soon kindling for the fire

    I realize it wasn't the end of the piece but for me it was.

    take care,

      [censored] brilliant my man. It's not so much the insomnia or the coffe or the cigarettes alone that are the focus is it? seems like that just underlines the statement of writing, err "the nightmare", like those little demons we all tuck under our bed/in our closet they're still there no matter how much we bleed on paper, or how long we stay in avoidence. either way i'd be interested to hear what the "experiment" is exactly. later

      This was great! It's cool to read something that maybe the person isnt crazy, but having little sleep will make anyone a lil coo coo.

      [censored]ing nice! Love the metaphors mixing in with reality here. So cool to think of your words as soaking up the caffeine. You describe well the feeling that most of us experience when the words keep us up at night. Might be best for you to lay off the caffeine at that hour though LOL.

    You build nicely throughout to a great close. I like the relative lack of puncuation and the semi-sloppy look of the piece, as if to mirror your disheveled emotions. Strong piece here my friend.

      but the nightmares are always there... man i hate that! i like hardly ever sleep and so as i read this i could see myself in it writing frantically (though having said that there is always a point where one is so tired they are even beyond writing)
    i prolly missed something with the whole conglomeratory effect so i shall say congrats to all of those who took part in this effort. this is a very taunting middle of the night poem... good stuff!
