A Poem by Isabel
"

Inspired by this song.

"

You like the taste of September.

Can't wash it out of your mouth.

Year old newspapers

Scattered all around your floors.


A girl named Molly screaming at your face.

She wanted all the attention that you've wasted.

Well she's gone forever with some knowledge of your past.

Look at you walking, secretly hoping for the guts to run fast.


Red and blue hues imprinted in your dark, black hair.

Slowly and hesitantly you threw a punch aimed at the air. 

Nighttime rolls around, but you can only small talk.

You can't stand the newly paved sidewalks.


Breezes thrash, cutting clean through.

Autumn bruised leaves fall gracefully around you.

Veiled by them and they silently judge you.


You can't ignore the pure silence in your mind.

Pretty sure you've lost track of time.

Destruction made like a passion

And you put the pieces together for the sake of a distraction.


Stuck in the words from months before.

Something said here, something said there

And you realized you can't do this anymore.


With a silver gleam in your eye and lips sealed with what you have told,

You walked away, passing every street of gold.

Maria, You write this piece seemingly taking random and unrelated feelings, separating them and then going back and weaving them into a sharp, cohesive tapestry that flows like a stream through a verdant wood. You have an impeccable, unique style to your writing that is so fresh and real and vivid...a shining light through a fog of verbiage. PLUS, thank you for exposing me to a new band (for me anyway), the song (that you say inspired your write) that seems to have been inspired BY YOUR WRITE. Simply an excellent and astonishing piece, this goes straight into my library favorites, so thank you for THAT also. take care...dan

I really like how you had different ideas that ultimately flowed into one. Absolutely amazing imagery. I got a clear picture in my head. Keep it up!

My jaw dropped after reading first verse, there is this coldness and broken links, and then everything comes together and make bigger picture. Good write, my friend.

Very interesting piece. So much to think about and ponder on, which is awesome.

The following I really liked:

"You can't ignore the pure silence in your mind.
Pretty sure you've lost track of time.
Destruction made like a passion
And you put the pieces together for the sake of a distraction."

Thank you for sharing! :)
