the passanger

Updated on October 13, 2011

gracefully her words are bent

like the arms of a ballerina

not talent, but practice

drives her

like delicate spider legs

weaving a web

yet imperfect as a broken promise

she writes of lust and tears

of power

and double edged bull shit

and breathes slightly easier

with each finished piece

the nights wear on

as does her need

to pliet with pen

dancing the dance of ink

the words come out perfectly

as do all words

when no one is around to receive them

silently she moves

to the music inside of her

interpreting her deepest passions

attempting to heal what is broken.

      The picture and video are very nice so are your words. Your word-pictures are very beautiful as the dance moves. I can hear music within the lines.

      wow tsmog, thats a serious comment. be careful around that looking glass...its been known to swallow some whole. So are you trying to find meaning in my title? The passenger is the hunger that lives inside to push out the writing. i hope you come back and read more.

      OK, I was doing fine, then you caught me. You reeled me in as if it were the catch of the day. Then, like the angler, you threw me into that bucket of water on the little rickety, wooden dock.

      It was at 'double edged bullshit' that I bit upon that hook. Like the Tasmanian Devil, I tore a path to your profile only to discover I had not only been caught, but fell beyond the looking glass.

      First as you, I offer a warning, even though I perused some of your talented work, seeking to understand, there are no comments. I'll quote a good friend the white rabbit, "I'm late! For a very important date! No time to say hello, goodbye! I'm late! I'm late! I'm late!" And, I desired to read from beginning to end, completely. But, this time I did play Swan's Lake.

      Still contemplating, I realized you caught me again. Though enticed with the magical mystery tour of ballet, the meaning strikes hard like mighty Thor's hammer. Swan's Lake is silent, yet the internet radio has chosen to play 'Safety Dance' by 'Men Without Hats.' And, is there meaning, I dun'no.

      Meaning , , ,an objective view of this work 'the pink umbrella.' Subjective, I haven't the words, yet. Right now I am lost with the title. I'm weird, I know, but I see 'passanger' and I most definitely read passenger, never giving thought, until now.

      Amazing talent you are a gift. I am sitting here after having written an Erotica poem, which I struggled with in my darkness. I am romantic, yet not often does my inner self get revealed. I was up to the challenge thus

      "Breathing You" came forth. Yes the pen does spill the ink and sometimes maybe even most times it get's it's fill from our souls. I enjoyed this scribe, you danced well, yet I sensed with a broken wing. Hugs to you my fine poet.

      You never cease to amaze me lady pink! Comparing writing to an amazing dance form of art. Ballet has to be one of the hardest most graceful forms of dance and you write it so easily with your pen. You dance when you write and you shine when you dance!

      Maybe you're just a tad self conscious? LOL! However, it's always a pleasure to read your writing and when I do read your writing, I read you. You usually apply feelings and passion, and even frustration to your writing by the words that you use. You invoke emotion and responses. What else would you like me to say. I read YOU! ;)

      Another interesting piece. I see you're working out your frustrations, feelings, passions and many other aspects of yourself. Well, last time I checked writing was a great releasing mechanism and should be used by everyone. As always, it was a joy to read you. :)
