A very long ramble that captured my attention and kept me captivated throughout...I feel it could do with some different punctuation (from me the hater of such) it's just a long read and every sentence ending with a period? I think you were going for the...fessing up in an addicts room situation but I felt out of breath for some reason???
Sometimes I just love a good ramble and you delivered so...excellent...for a ramble haha!! got my nomo this week :)
Mr. Colm--- You sir, are so darn creative it kills me! When I first read this poem during Larry's contest I was captivated!
I applaud you for the gifted talent and rawness that you have displayed within this poem.
I have a personal connection with having a family member suffering from addictions and so when I first read this piece I started grabbing a message, relating to that. Then the metaphor hit me!
So many angles to this poem, that I was twisting and turning in many directions and when that happens I know I've got to highlight this piece!
Lying to yourself in poetry is easily done, especially when writing a sonnet (snorting sonnets is a fun and flavorful way to describe it by the way (ha!)
Normally, I'm not a fan of harsh curse words within poetry, and I'm glad you chose to Bleep out the middle portion of the word, only because it adds to the flavor of the poem and it also helps to express the pure frustration of the message itself and what you are trying to express... Well done!!
