Mag 40

your trinkets remain
your scent lingers
but you were never here
the you i knew
exists only in memory
only in mind
a varnished monster
polished into prince charming
a dead body
into my Frankenstein monster
to fit my fancy
pieces of you
dissolving into
nothing more than
chalk paintings
in the rain

    >"to fit my fancypieces of youdissolving intonothing more thanchalk paintingsin the rain"This,to me is the epitome of utter disappointment in someone, a real letdown yet a washing away to the cleansing of your soul…

    >Prince Charming to Frankenstein. An all too common transition.

    >Very lovely and sad.

    >Powerful yet tender, muscular and macho, yet vulnerable; a real poem from a real poet–macabre and fresh, and like some of the others the /dissolving into/nothing more than/chalk paintings/in the rain/really sums it up, and puts us in the mood for something sweet and sour for our next meal; and hey, you did not use the word fuck even once.

    >Awfully well written…

    >I am new to your blog, I just started following it yesterday…but I love this, and I can really relate to every word. That is what I like most about it, every word has such deep meaning and was carefully chosen. It is sad but empowering at the same time. I needed this today, thank you.

    >That's a powerful sentiment…does anyone ever really know another? Very good piece.

    >It's sad when you realize that your memory of a lover is better than what he ever was in reality. An emotional piece that evoked in me the feeling you wanted (I think) your readers to feel.

    >Monster as prince as monster … a story for the ages. Your Magpie really packed a punch!

    >I like this… powerful beings transitioning to vanishing evils… to just what we wish things to be.

    >Rain just wears on a person! Love this little piece!

  24. Caty November 15, 2010 at 2:27 pm #

    >oh this is a wonderful piece. it's funny how what we see in our mind/feel with our heart is not always what really existed…

    >What a cracking piece! Really touches the soul.
