Insomniac.

Post by quinn allman's hair. on Mon 18 May 2009, 10:02 am

I am the insomniac.

I am the tears that touch the pillow
I am the vine around the willow;
I am the indifference in you heart
I am the tricks of which you were a part.

I am the embers that light the shadows
I am the lonely figure in the meadow;
I am the ache of your pain
I am the time you lost your way.

I am the scratch of the pen
I am the scene from back then;
I am the blinded eyes that see
I am the one you want to be.

I am the sleepless dreams
I am the nights that scream;
I am the childish bandaid on your cuts
I am the one that has no luck.

I am the smoke that burns your nose
I am the thorny black rose;
I am the depession of tomorrow
I am the years that will follow.

I am the darkness that ensues;
I am the truth.

Wow. This was... wow. I love it.

I have a real thing for rhyming poetry. I guess it's because it's so hard to do well, so when someone pulls it off it makes me happy. And you definitely pulled it off.

I especially loved "I am the childish bandaid on your cuts". I probably pulled a different meaning from that than you had in mind when you wrote it, but it really struck a chord for me.

Very well done (:

To me it kind of... gave the impression of lost innocence. obviously in my mind the cuts were self inflicted, so it was like... you're trying to patch up the damage done by the childhood you never had?

I read too much into things hmmmm

but still; really good. you have pleased him

Thankyou!

I think my crappy first person POV gives it some sort of added edge or something. Adds to the mystery...? whatnow? O_O

Hm.

this is a very interesting piece, giving something abstract such as Insomnia a voice and persona through the first person POV. Very good execution I must say i r pleased.

However there are a few quirks :/

Firstly, the lines about embers and the vine on the willow, are these more personal references [for example was there indeed a tree with a vine around it and a fireplace / fire somewhere near you] ? I just got slightly confused when I read those two lines, more so quirky out of place rather than intentional out of place.

Sorry, like I said, just a few quirks ,not saying your poem is crap.

Not at all, Cosmo, thanks for your input you have pleased him
The way I see it, the line about "the vine around the willow" is the insomnia strangling the sufferer, as vines tend to do.
And the line "embers that light the shadows", well, I honestly have no idea what I was thinking at the time. It's actually got me quite confused right now myself LMFAOOO
Then again, there are alot of sides to insomnia, it's not just the inability to sleep, it's also what you're thinking of to take the edge off not being able to sleep. So maybe I was thinking of something that made me feel warm and fuzzy, thus the embers being the small amount of hope and light in a massive amount of darkness.
Or it could just be the one person awake when the world is dark?
I hope I've clarified it somewhat. Most likely though, I've just confused you more LMFAOOO LMFAOOO

Thanks Cosmo and Rita -loves-
