David DeSantis

(01/29/85 / Utica, NY)


its my curse
im unaware
of the punishment it gives.
its my hope.
You know the way i wished
for that and those
and who is she.
your my curse,
side-swiped thoughts
of your mischievous improvements.

    Your'ed have to say this is cleaver - a poem with such an open extended metaphor that practically forces the reader to project his troubles and life into it. Very cleaver I think I will try it. (Report) Reply

    This is very good David. Concise, passionate and pleasingly structured. Sounds to me like writing poetry is going to help with your granularity hangup, too. There is quite an important metaphysical thread running through this too, methinks. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    Granularity reminds me of salt
    from it we get some flavor
    but overdone, it, like the sun,
    can wither, dry, and sever.

    Water and heat and time, repeat
    can mold it into a crystal
    Beautiful to behold, its facets,
    bold, can be ground down by a pestle.

    Salt, refined, is favorful.
    To folks, it is a treasure.
    But salt, distressed, is uselessness;
    Because it's lost it's savor.

    Your granularity inspired me to try to be poetic again. Thanks! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
