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
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
Whose laugh resound in the heavens and make the sky laugh ugly teal.
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.
Yeah but I need a nap and then homework. School tomorrow.
Have a sweet day, happy and sunny and bright! I hope you are well too. Write me anytime!
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.
sorry to interupt...but how do I report a possible scammer?
Thanks...where is it? I rec'd a personal e-mail and I want to forward it to the Hubpages....) Hugs G-Ma Johnson

perfume...life and chasing rainbows. First draft.I know now that life is like perfume, If you do not enjoy it Each day it dilutes,loses its vibrancy,fades. I will not store it away, pressed petals in a jar. Splashed across my wrist and dancing in the rain Until the prism bows, an arch across the...
