You look at it and
    it all fades away.

You're trying to hold on
    - keep your grip.

[Regret that last day].

Feel the strengh of desire
     (blood rushes).
You've got that need.

Ahh...yes...

But your just a pretending liar
hiding your self away.

However; the needs, wants, desires
all eat at you,
      (small bite by small bite)
consuming you whole.

Your so relentlessly selfish
      (as I give myself away).

Satisfying your wants, I grant your every wish,
easing your pain of desire
      - you want for nothing
      - yet need it all.

a rhinestone effigy,
moving, emotional cathexis.

Mixing up.  Bring out your need for me,
all out lonely desire for them.

The world falls apart
       (as it apears solid)
an ever lasting continuum of
confused turmoil.

Nothing more than an object to remember.

A good write, Effigy!

cathexis  
SYLLABICATION: ca·thex·is
NOUN: Concentration of emotional energy on an object or idea.  

This is nice, Wes. I really enjoyed this one. Your words flow very well, and I love the "voice" of the poem. Your use of parenthesis in the poem is brilliant.

You do have one typo. In the following line, it should be "You're"--not "Your":

"Your so relentlessly selfish
      (as I give myself away)."


Good write, though.

I believe the most important component of a poem is rhythm. Rhythm is the heartbeat of a poem. It is what makes poetry poetry.
