Out tonight
Found myself again
At the bottom of a pitcher
Downing each glass like your face was at the bottom.

I found ... nothing, but the bottom of the pitcher.

A few lines saying soooo much! I must add, that you should be writing more poetry more often.

I love this one! Keep them coming!!!

Yes, I am back, as I loved this one. You're reminding me of one of the phrases I used in one of my song - "Get Away". I feel the same hollowness here. Although many people presumed the song was of denial and escape, in reality the poem is loosely about finding oneself. So, I can understand this very well Triana.

Keep on writing! Undoubtedly, you are excellent at expressing internal expressions!!!

That she is Brosreview. She's extremely talented with writing out expressively.

I figure I'll see you soon enough this weekend to give you my thoughts on this ;)

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

I can really relate to this. Though I assume most people can in one way or another. Nice job. (:

Brosreview - I am tragically inclined to think much less of my words; they are merely emotion throw haphazardly into phrases, often making sense to no one besides myself. Which pleases me, in that I write for no one but myself. Selfish to say, but writing soothes me at times and is done only when I feel the undeniable urge. Other times however, not even words can escape the chaos of my own mind. Days turn into weeks before the thoughts unfold atop themselves, screaming to be freed.

Also I must mention, you hit head on the hollow aspect. April told me instantly that she terribly disliked my creation with this photo - but I took it and edited it just to reflect the hollowness of my spirit at the moment. Whether by words or picture, I'm pleased that you "get" it. Too many read my words and assume they know me, or my feelings, yet are so way off base. Kudos!

Alas, I was so caught up in commenting back to Ajey that I published wihout finishing my thoughts...

Anonymous - whoever you may be, I appreciate your thoughts on my current writings, however I much enjoy my early writings as well. They were not meant to entertain anyone but myself, and in that respect, they do their job very well. I return to them frequently and revisit old emotions, flashing like fire - whether laughter, sadness, joy, or pure temperment. They are mine. I share them with you. Please be so kind as to not tromp on them the next time you visit. If I were writing to be published then I would dearly appreciate your opinion. As it stands, I write for myself, and again, I am happy with what I write; it pleases me. Thank you for visiting and being open enough to leave your comment though! I'm only giving you my reaction to your comment, not chastising or chasing you away!

Gavin, everyone has these moments. I'm foolish enough to think that I have them more so than others at times, but I'm aware that it's only my own momentary foolishness. There are more words that I have been meaning to say to you, bt they have yet to find their way. Until then...
