This Poem Reminds Me of You

 

Pensively, I turn a missive that now takes

That place of you in my life.

Although it is my fault.

─forgive me, I

 

Strongly prefer the idea of you as an abstract entity ─Like

 

The gray and curling smoke from cigarettes

Or perhaps a drunken stupor ─and

Most certainly identical to curiosity,

A dulling, nagging question;

 

Where has your conscience gone?

intreging would like to hear more

I am inspired by personal experience, music, and poets like T.S. Eliot, Langston Hughes, William Carlos Williams, Emily Dickinson, and Edgar Allan Poe.<br />
<br />
This poem and Fade Away are both about the same person.<br />
<br />
I have a book filled with with poetry...I just hope they keep your interest.

This is great work. The morose nature that is in line with a tired anger which asks the person responsible for your sadness how they let themselves slip away.<br />
I also love the style you chose for this poem.<br />
Please continue on with your poetry AB.

Thank you. I normally don't write in this style, but I was greatly influenced by T.S. Elliot and William Carlos Williams at the time.

I like this...I especially like the way you have broken up the lines, and the use of words.
