    Sometimes when I'm with you
    everything turns gray.
    The beauty disappears.
    The world becomes a pile of ashes,
    and I start to suffocate.
    I try not to surrender
    to the claustrophobic blandness,
    but sometimes the ashes get into my blood.
    I abhor the feeling
    because you used to make
    my world explode
    like the Fourth of July.

      it sounds like a contradiction in the begninning, but when when i think about it, after the fireworks, what's left are ashes. this is a really great write.

      A great use of contrast in this one. I really like your use of claustrophobic blandness, in conjunction with the sufocating. Why do relationships turn from fireworks to only the burned out ashes and empty cartridges?

      Powerful poem. I fell the chill of feeling ashes running in my veins, almost felt violated.
    Is July 4th the Independence Day?

      I like it too. I especially like the imagery of ashes invading your blood stream.

      Cuddle, this is a winner. I call these kind of people black holes - they suck thelife out of everything. I wasn't expecting the end because I was thinking about my own particular experience, so the exploding line had double the effect. I don't have anything to suggest - you're on top of it.
