BETRAYAL ON THE ROCKS

BETRAYAL ON THE ROCKS

This orgasm

begging to get out

of my system

will have to wait

till the final mouthful

of salvation

is eliminated from

the dream of

the final glass

that forebodes

emptiness

What comes first?

An imagination

drowned in loneliness

or a drunken

sleep of resignation

coated in the salivation

of a drool

limp and damp

clamming up a cheek

immune to comfort

sleeping off

the slavery of realism?

HOLY, THIS IS WHAT LOVE IS. Seriously, this was just so....idk I feel like it just grabbed ahold of me and would not let go. I read this four times over. The imagery I got from this was amazing, the emotions so provocative and astonishing. The whole meaning I got out of this was just...Complete awe right now. I read it and found two different perspectives in it, I love each one I had. The beginning really dragged me in haha "This orgasm" wow packed that punch! 5 stars, thumbs up, pat on the back, bravo my friend!

Highest form of imperative expressionism. Great work .

An incredibly potent rant. Staggering metaphors, sharp rhetoric and so much bitterness! I am amazed by how much power you can pack in your words. The words literally scream at the reader from the screen. The phrase "sleeping off the slavery of realism" is so stark it drives the message home like a dagger piercing the heart. I'm a gentle mild sort of fellow who's had a comfy life so I can't even begin to comprehend the agony portrayed here. But I can definitely reaffirm the poetic merit of its portrayal. This is as good as raw emotion can get. Stunning!

Thank you my friend, I see specks of light here and there haha
This one cuts like a knife, a dull, rusted knife slicing in reckless abandon. Opening wounds of thought and unleashing the pain of minds set adrift by a longing or a need that remains unfulfilled. Very cool Steve, this came on hard and ended with a scream...even during a silent sleep.

I real enjoyed this. It has a raw emotion with it, and I read it as someone that was irritated and annoyed. Like fed up and tired of being lonely maybe? Either way, I liked the way it read and moved me along. Nicely penned.

My, my. This is telling. If I knew the answer, I would not keep it from you. A very good question indeed.

Somehow I figured this was something you could relate to...thank you my friend.
A stark piece... I like the grit of this one; you wrote with a sort of frenzied fervor that showed intrinsic strength and depth. I love the emotion inffused in this one. In reading I kept coming back to the internal feeling (and question) of "what is this all for" (in terms of life), and I like your piece as a metaphor for that. This feels like an eruption of emotion to me, and it is pieces like this one that always hit me the hardest. Well done, as always, my friend!
