I'm one of your talking wounded.

    Ohh... Something very dramatic and expands more the readers' imaginations. It tells something that wants the reader think of that something. (Report) Reply

    The usual cliches of love poetry are wiped away by the particulars of a shoddy hotel room, and focused on the lover, the reality, the authentic flesh and feeling.
