You stay in melbourne now,
coping better with its cold
than your frostbitten spirits

Your blogged words
spoke of your
attachment to life
like an outdated CD
You endure
the same old boring tunes,
reluctant to
expand your repertoire

You turn to
larger-than-life movie characters,
with their mind-numbing showcase
of how to lead
psyched-up lives

You tolerate
the smirking blank screen,
whose shroud of charged emptiness
you fumble with
by hastily placing
yet another disc

I relate
I place faith too  
in the odds of deriving
divine inspiration/knowledge/lessons/whatever
from classier fictional realities

Yet I left your blog
without leaving a well of words
because i couldn't quite pen
a comment about kindred spirits

Hey there, guy, have missed your insights in here.
Thanks, kaile, for gifting us with another incredible write.

Talk about a vivid portrait!:

Wonderful!!  I found this a complicated confession of less than perfect oneness.

Does that make sense to anyone but me?

I hope I never make you angry!  Your venom is deadlier, I believe, than any poison, but for good reason I am sure.  This reminds me of a hate poem I wrote to an ex-boyfriend a few years ago.

Brilliantly done!  And yes, getting it down on paper, is a wonderful catharsis, isn't it?
