Revelers Visit the Inn

Revelers Visit the Inn

A Poem by Aarontastic

i spend a lot of time in my room.
I spin around in circles sometimes, just for kicks.
when the sounds of mirth come through the floorboards,
i know that company has arrived -
they laugh so heartily over the clink of champagne glasses
I can almost see the smiles on their faces
and smell their breath, thick with wine
and taste their pungent joy and happiness.
anxiously, i wait for them to call me from my room
sitting on my bed patiently
entertaining myself in  a myriad mundane ways.
Footsteps! Talking outside my door!
no wait, never mind;
that’s just the sound of this old house settling,
and the howl of the lonely wind.

"I know that company has arrived" I like that line. It definitely stuck with me. The whole things is very visual, which is something that I love. I'm in the room as I read it.

I like it. You have your own way at describing things. " I spin around in circles sometimes, just for kicks", such an abstract point of view, like everything makes no sense. Beautiful

I love poetry that has beat of rhythm if you rather. The play in punctuation is clever and adds to the music of the piece. It speaks thought in a way that is clear, concise and clean; as if your thoughts are flowing on paper! The emotion however is strong and the images you invoke are surreal.
