~The Scientist


    Two posts in such close proximity of each other?

    It crazy, I know.

    But I think I’ve finished the poem…. Thoughts are wanted, so give them up! (This means YOU.)

    I am very tired, but I am really enjoying Tae Kwon Do… I just wish that it was longer… or something like that. I found out that we are testing in June. We. That means Il be testing for my yellow belt! Yes, it only the second rank (or first, depending on your view), but I excited anyway….

    I love the people that I know, because they are such lovely people…

The district sleeps alone tonight,

Arboretum

When you look at me
I am like a fly
caught
in a Venus Flytrap
I can not stop
falling in
again and again
and all the while
you slowly devour
my heart
like the plant does the insect.

I persist to be caught in your gaze,
and I consciously throw myself
into the deeps wells
of your eyes
and while I am wrapped
in my masochism
you
are innocent
like the snowfall:
unknowing of the flower it beheads.

    Oh yes, That is what I was thinking but I did not see your screenname and so I was somewhat confused. ^_^How are you?As for Jennifer… I don’t really feel bad right now. I am just living my life and hopefully sometime in the future she will try to get in contact of me again.–Kyle

    So I shouldn’t love you?Titles are odd things. Writers are encouraged to title their pieces. Why? So that people can call it something? I don’t think so; people will name things as they will. Even though titles do function as names, they are primarily content because the author wrote it. A good writer will choose a title that interacts with the body of his or her work. Hierarchically, post>title,body .I understand what you meant (I think), though.Speaking of titles, I didn’t like this poem until I looked up the definition of your title. I blame it on not liking most poetry. Snarky and detached, I understand. Not so much with lovestruckness. As a rule for my interpreting poetry: to hell with author’s intent– it’ll be read subjectively anyways.-jake
