Vicky Biorseth

Rookie (1967 / Florida)

Only Teasing


My spirit is on its knees
My will is willing to give up
My heart is unrecognizable, bludgened, bleeding, bruised and broken
Years of seaching...for What?
The thought of you was nice for while
The possibility pleasing
I told myself that you were the one
But I was only teasing

    Sufficient spoken by words just to be recognized. Sufficient to be alone to catch the thread of love. Good write. (Report) Reply

    There is nothing more emotion-provoking then new or lost love..... which is why poems about such are plentiful. You will never outperform the likes of Shakespeare, Browning, or Angelou in such things... You have talent. I'm jaded, but still will suggest you write about things that you find in life - not about things you want in life...

    From Amy Lowell - A Decade

    When you came
    ....you were like red wine and honey,
    And the taste of you burnt
    ........my mouth with its sweetness.
    Now you are like morning bread,
    Smooth and pleasant,
    I hardly taste you at all,
    for I know your savor,
    But I am completely nourished.

    Remove yourself from your poetry - read it undetached. Does it evoke the same commonality that Amy stressed? Love poetry can be wonderful - but it must be superb or it is nothing but an idle thought. (Report) Reply

    What an innocent attempt to tease(please) his own conscience! Nicely wrapped in a poetic shell. Congratulations! (Report) Reply

    Talking of human emotion which is temporal. Nice write but do you mean to say 'bludgeoned'? (Report) Reply

    Reflection


    At night when you climb into bed
    The thoughts of the day in your head
    Do you drift into sleep
    Or fall into the deep
    Fine-linen, debating, bedstead (Report) Reply
