    Description:
       For those who
    claim I've no
    clarity to match
    each myopic vision,
    pull up a chair
    and enjoy the funhouse:
    madness is now
    in session.

    -------------------------------------------


    We claim faith
    in what we desire
    though love dismember
    us in unkempt thickets;
    scalpels serrate our
    fingertips, still
    moths drawn suicidally
    to flame embrace
    the end of days
    as if beginning.

    Shall I carve you
    from the tomb
    grown round you
    like the parapet of
    an abandoned post;
    a madman's solitary
    castle? Is this the
    reason seasons sing
    of sinning with those
    they desire most?

    End to deadest
    end with each
    dull streetlamp
    glowing, possessed
    by firefly animulae;
    hello, I must be going.

      I'm with "Daniel" on this you definitly got a diffrent style. You lost me on some parts like I dont know what "scalpels" are. Guess I'm just dumb. But it was a good write I liked the story even if I didnt understand it all.

      You definitely have a style of your own and demand a lot from the reader. This smacks of someone who has been burned by love's flame once too often.

    My favorite part is the last stanza where the scene reveals a bitter man whose voice rings out from the shadows and is heard to say "[censored] that [censored], I've had enough"

    Very clever and as phantom said it contains the sort of complexity that is often found in a sonnet.

    Excellent imagery...and poem.

      Have you ever read Emily Dickenson?!
    This smacks so much of her difficult to decifer prose. Not to mention the way she tends to double cross, mesmerize, and/or suckerpunch you at the ending. Like the slightly un sane thoughts that pop up in my head at night, this makes no sense, yet I understand it. Then, of course, when I think about it again, all comprehension flies from my head and my thoughts are all tangled up.
    Just like the bumper sticker, "I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it!"
    Just one question: is this about being crazy in love, or being in love with being crazy?

      Before I read this i had the best of intentions at delivering some constructive criticism...but I'm just plain gobsmacked. This feels like it was composed hundreds of years ago, and in general i feel like you're just on a whole different level to what I'm able to achieve with poetry. I don't know whether that's because you spend longer writing them or whether it's just some God given talent, but I know I'm envious. So good for so many reasons.

      I catch myself saying ooh and ah as I read through this.

    This is well said. It is the type of write that you read repeatedly to enjoy the feel and soak up the images and yet pull back from their stark nature.

    It is obviously dark, as imagine madness might be. The images maintain a reality in their surreal nature.

    The words her stand alone for their clever construction. The meaning simply oozes from them.

    Nicely done!

      Beutiful work... Indeed, lust without love is lacking and pointless and generally leads to trouble in the future... The potential for disaster increases with each encounter until the time comes for relationships and entire lives to implode... And all the while we know... We know what will happen. We tempt fate and keep things loose and carefree until someone gets hurt... Oh God, I hope I'm not completely off base on this one... The metaphors and decriptive language were simply beautiful, though sometimes a bit too elusive for me to fully grasp. After all, only the writer can understand every piece of figurative language in a piece. Still, I enjyed every bit of this, and it's rare for me to honestly love every bit of what I'm reading... Excellent work

      I really enjoyed your poem here. I’ll tell you how I interpreted it first, so you’ll have grounds on which to judge my comments.

    First, I must admit understanding something so figurative is difficult. Unfortunately, I couldn’t decipher all of the metaphors, but I think I realized most of them.

    Lines 1-4 can be considered the outcome of lust. When in a relationship, couples always “claim faith” in their desire for one another. Yet, under this pretense of mutual attraction there is, on the contrary, often a lack love reality. These couples will eventually have sex, but since it is done for lust and not for love, they will be left feeling unsatisfied and emotionally trodden. Love will thus disappoint and end by “dismembering” the couple along mutually “unkempt thickets.” In the remaining portion of the stanza, the moth motif is first cited. This motif compares such lack love lovers to moths, saying they are drawn to the “flame embrace” of another, failing to realize how moribund their relationship already is.

    Unfortunately I can’t offer a comprehensive explanation of the second stanza.

    The final stanza expresses the futility of the dating game. The narrator does so by comparing one such lover to a moth (motif) that wanders from dead end to dead end, attracted by dull lights (relatively unattractive relationships), but focusing on the firefly that blows him off instantly. (a second interpretation of this stanza is the character just gives up on dating and rejects even the attractive “light” of the firefly that comes to him)


    My thoughts:

    1) I liked all the metaphors and motifs; unfortunately I didn’t understand the parapet tomb grown around you one. It’s a nice line, nonetheless.

    2) “scalpels serrate” our fingertips was another one that wasn’t wholly clear, though I think I understand it. Was “serrate” the best verb choice?

    3)like I said about the second stanza, I couldn’t grasp this metaphor.

    4)conclusion is great, I like the “end to deadest / end with each / dull streetlamp / glowing” lines. I could not, however, find an entry for “animulae” in any of the several dictionaries I checked.

    I really did like this poem, in fact it made the favorites list. If you’d be willing to fill in the gaps of my comprehension (as much as is possible), I’d love to hear more.

    Later
    Luke
