    Its a metaphor.

    Her story: epic love shortened to novelette
    by irreconcilable plot complications.
    She was only a hack at passion.
    Each story was the same theme
    with minor scene and character changes.

    She was prolific at perfectly short romances.
    It was easy when she could not feel the pain.
    Creativity callused by years of work left little
    sensation in the extremities of her heart.

    Her last novella was the shortest.
    She was certain it would be ignored
    and wind up sold for a few cents
    in a bargain book remainder bin.
    The End was all she scribbled on the note,
    but she missed the deadline.

    So she found shelter in seclusion
    until the hardened dead skin peeled.
    Now she writes sporadically as she feels
    and is renown around the world
    as a poor but insightful,
    metaphoric poet.

      Neat, very neat, a great metaphor, actually!

    It was interesting to stroll through the development of the novelist and allude it to love's lessons that we learn on the way.

    Very, very well done

    be happy

      Hi Chrys,

    This is insightful and interesting. But I prefer to believe life happens in stages, and those progressions keep us moving along and learning. Some of the best friendships I've had never traveled into the realm of romance..

    and they still live, pages get penned from time to time and the intimacy never dies.

    a beautiful catharsis, for whomever will claim it
    and love does return, when it's time

      I think I understood this perfectly and I truly hope it's not autobiographical. ah but I can relate. my last two romances didn't even really exist much outside of my mind!! but it's a new year soon and things are going to be different!! nice write here.

      This was very deep. I did not grasp it's meaning, but I was enthralled by this poem. I saw how this woman wrote but she was detached from her work. And it effected her on all levels. This was just so captivating. I liked the way you wrote this. This had layers of details and a nice flows. when you get a chance, could you explain this poem to me. Good job.

      I liked this. I can think of many things this would be a metaphor for, but I wonder which one you implyed. It seemed like the intentions had been directed at yourself, but what do I know? I wonder, though, if anything could actually work out so good like this. I suppose that's a sign I might be too much of a negative.
