I've been quite slack with my comments lately but I thought i'd start with you because this piece was absolutely awesome. You know what I love so much about your writing. It is that you have the ability to change your style and I believe that is because you love to learn. You love to try new things. That was evident here.
The first stanza, It was beautiful in my mind. For some reason I pictured a volcanic erruption.. The Smoldering smoke falling from lips, seeping into the lungs. And the hot lava of your heart.. [yes I do have quite a strange imagination]
"Smoldering words fall from vacant lips
Each syllable curling around my heart
Seeping into my lungs, smothering me
Death by my own sword"
Definitly my favorite stanza the above.
however I also adored these two line:
"Like a mind with no filter, I spewed my venom
Sweet poisons of truth"
I loved the contrast between your words. Dark and vicious but sweet and elegant..
While this poem was sad it definitly held beauty in your words.
