for Sorrow Is So Demanding

It reminds me so much of Edgar Allen Poe, do you read a lot of his work? Especially these two lines:

Where in dank devil basements the

Rank vile replacements line

The rhyming reminds me of The Raven. It leaves me feeling that I've just only scraped the surface.

I've re-read it a couple of times and retain a sense of inadequacy, as a reader. There is *obviously* a lot below the surface but the surface is also highly patterned and sparkly. Um. You can tell I'm a bit inarticulate when I have to resort to metaphor. This is highly invocative (is that a word?) imagery here. I love the implications of the repeated electricity/computer metaphor.

damn. i love this. "Power lost with ripcords dangling/And their wrist veins all entangling/From the sockets of disgrace" - brilliant.

This was an excellent poem. I loved the way you wrote it, very unique and the word choice was excellent. I loved the alliteration you had going, with phrases like "Sockets spitting sparks" and "slow sluggish sandman." Great work, keep writing :)

Dear God. I mean it when I say this is the best poetry I've ever seen. Not just on this site, ever. I love it, the way you rhymed, the conveyance of hopelessness, and the same computer metaphor... wow... I am going to read your other stuff, definitely, because this is truly powerful stuff. Congrats!

they say that there's connections to be

made here-

lives outstretched like cold hands

(waiting to be warmed by someoneanyoneeveryone)

and what are we but poets? made to

romanticize things we

see but don't quite understand, you know-

the worst thing in the world is a day

misunderstood

Ok. that was weird. Props for the poem, but sorry, I read too much crap/teen angst here to be able to feel anything genuine for some of these people.

I think that this is an excellent piece of work! The beginning seems to be a bit akward, or at least the rhymes aren't very obvious. I think that, if this was reworked a little like getting rid of some of the off-ended lines, ex."Untouched without data when a" it sounds rather incomplete, in context or not.

I love the work, it really relates to my life. Did i mention that I love it?

Keep it up!

I am very impressed. And I am honored that you were inspired by the angstiness of fp. Hehe, I don't know, it was brilliant.
