bang on your ears like screwdrivers

    My style is dazzling
    Drink it up like gasoline
    A thousand words for every gallon,
    You'd think I'm part of Stalin's team
    Freshly-loaded magazine
    For every criticism cast at me
    Like a line thrown to a river to disrupt the river's placid scene
    You're stirring ripples without warrant
    I don't want your turbulence or torrent
    And you claim it's only honesty but your honesty's abhorrent
    So I try to ignore it,
    Send back the hook before it finds the soil and then claws for it,
    Roots in deep,
    Anchors in the mud like those thoughts that can creep
    into your head just before you fall asleep,
    Thoughts of daytime thoughts of high school thoughts of futures where my voice will rule
    And I hold goblets with gems and gobble what you condemn because
    I love the way my chewing annoys you
    When the room is silent and sound won't end
    And I'll make you stare at the muscles on my face
    Move out and roll in at an oil derrick's pace
    You think I'm chewing a meal but your cringing's the appeal,
    Providing more nutrition than my mother's early meals
    Cooked with protein and vegetables and a parent's concerned zeal,
    So I eat with my mouth open until you use your hands like a seal
    over your eyes to neglect the stimuli that bang on your ears like screwdrivers
    or pirates
    Whose laugh resound in the heavens and make the sky laugh ugly teal.

      Awesome...you've got some incredible talent.  Hubs are the best way to showcase what you've got.
      AND I'd say you need to get a divorce! lol

    Brilliant.

    Make this a hub.

    And then tell us what you're thinking by responding in the forums. People will get to know you there and you'll develop a fan base.

      Haha, thanks! I just found this site earlier today. Is it typical to make a new hub for each entry? That seems so diffuse and unwieldy!

        Sorry I missed this post. Yes you treat it as if it's a newspaper and you are a columnist without a deadline, who also chooses your own assignments. It works and some people make a lot of money at it.

        Its typical to make hubs. Thats the whole point. The forums are more for chatting, asking questions, etc. Forums get lost in the shuffle, hubs stay put. Hubs make you money. Forums do not.

    I believe this should be categorized as Poetry not creative writing, however I agree make it a hub and get credit for it. You will get more readers once you create it. smile
