A collection of short poems
1st stanza is nice. sharp and crisp. second stanza gets a bit vague for me. thanks brian!!
Brian, I really like the first 3 strong lines:"The kitchen collapsesinto my heartand sinks"because of the word association twix kitchen/sink. Cool.
I agree on the first three lines. I also liked "the darkness remains vivid."
Wooww I love it..As I visit your blog I notice that I have blog that the same on you which about Poems and Stories.I wonder if we could ex-link..just visit my blog and leave some comments there about your blog info..thnks..
This is quite effectively disturbing. I like the word play too.
Wow, Brian. What a brutally honest peice. Very impressive. Dark and weighty.
dark and powerfulmakes one want and not want to know more
i've returned...this poem hung with me. here's a possible revision:The kitchen collapsesinto my heartand sinkslike the heaviestliquid far beneathflooded baseboards.In the houses cellarwhere I stillcannot forgive,darkness remainsvivid.i cut some of your articles.

Brian, hope things are good with you. I'm looking forward to your next poem..:)
I have a few ideas about revision if you're interested. I think the idea of what the speaker can't forgive is worth exploring. Hope to see you at Black-eyed Susan's soon.

I love the use of common objects linked to emotion. The first stanza really send the reader down into the cellar. The only suggestion I would make is to link the liquid that floods the baseboard into the second stanza.
i like your style man.. keep it up...im in same line try and visit my work.or maybe you we can link each other up....http://geekerzz.blogspot.com/
