This poem was written much later than Misery, but the feelings they invoke in me are so closely related that I am compelled to dub this the sequel to Misery.I really enjoyed how the sillouhette of this poem, when centered, rather resembles a little glass jar.
This warning was written very early in the morning after the completion of a picture under the same title (see my elfwood gallery or my website for the work). I apologize for my insanity--I was under the influence of TOOL at the time... ^_-
This tale was inspired by a dream I had...of course I attempted to make it a lil more cohesive when I wrote it, even adding an ironic twist at the end. ^_-
Don't be lulled by the title too much...I won two diffent awards for this story...a third and a first place in two different writing contests.
This is one of the very first 'good' poems I wrote...granted, now I can write much 'better,' but it is sometimes interesting to read my oldest works which I once deemed to be my best, in order to gain a certain perspective on my advancement in my poetic abilities(besides, I still like it alot!) I wrote this one during a boring, one-sided phone conversation.
This is, by far, one of my favourite poems of my creation. I mark this poem as the beginning of a radical shift in my poetic interests from the macabre to the emotional. This poem is posted on Poetry.com, and was published by them in a compilation entitled 'Shades of Grey,' as well as featured in my high school yearbook my Senior year (2001).
