Poem Commentary

Gossip sucks...

Vintage Wine...

Feel their stares
upon your skin,
burning,
like acid,
and hot,
like a flame-licked brand...

Hear their words,
soft murmurs
of a brook,
and get caught in
the current
of the river beneath...

Taste the hate
you feel
in your mouth,
bitter,
like yarrow,
lingering in the back of your throat...

See them smile
as you turn,
innocense personified...
but you see
the flames of
power
burning in thier eyes...

For they know
that you hear them...

They can smell
your hate
like roses...
embarressment
like thyme...

and savor your sadness
like a vintage wine....

My favorite line here"Hear their words, soft murmurs of a brook, and get caught in the current of the river beneath"

Very intense...I almost felt like I went back in time...I can remember the vulnerability during the time when I worried about what people said and did. (As time goes by, you just really don't care, their immaturity doesn't affect you! Heck, when you become a "has been" you wish somebody would talk about you! :)

Nice. You even took the stanza's through each of the senses. Almost giving it the feel of how the bullshit can try to overwhelm the whole of you. Man mouth runnin will never stop :)

To the point and refreshingly honest. Your poem invokes in me a fundamental awareness that in one's description of who we might be lies the defining imprint of who they are.

well i try to be honest. :) and im glad i invoked something in you... ~Audrey

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
