Edging towards metaphorical, but never quite getting there.

Edging towards Metaphorical

by davorite

I'm not a poet.

But I still drip with translucent teal envy, twitching,

for the words of music, the song of speech

captured by the deft hands of a philosopher and by the gentle soul of a genius.

Finding in them artists, unmistakable talents.

Finding in them a contagious desire, a tangible want, an absolute need: to create new meanings out of words rather than to simply rearrange old ones.

Yet, here I sit.





The only thing I can do, it seems,

is be dramatic.

But it is the struggle of every writer,

edging towards metaphorical.

You wrote an excellent piece here. The wording was not only melodic, it was grandiloquent. Your familiarity with and the use of words is masterful. If you want inspiration, look around you. It could be a piece of leftover toast. Imagine that take on life to end up crusty and discarded. The important thing is to be able to write about nothing. Great job!!!
