Comforting Captials

the eveNing strayed into the dark evening shade.
   we pick up a drink and sharpen Our knives.
        hold on now, hold on a little longer
              wield the sharpest edge
                    like clear glass
                         of lonely
                            pain
               down                  deep
          in My heart           sO to steep
      the moRe i grind       life into feEling
   warming my blue bLood by an Open fire. 
    a maN hiding in the darkest End of this
     Life will not speak of his crying eYes.
      i touch his glass and Pour out all
             the sorrow.  i leAve hIm
                  walkiNg to light of
                            love

Symbolism:

The shape of an award symbolizes the award given to a person who lets go of their pain and 
is able to achieve the hidden message (capitalized letters): “NO MORE LONELY PAIN”.

The word “pain” is at the bottom of the upper portion of the poem.  Where the knife cuts into 
the heart, there is pain.  This portion of the poem also describes the descent into depression 
after the loss of love.  The shape is a downward arrow or a knife being sharpened to a point, 
ready to inflict pain.  Also, the word "NO" is hidden in the capital letters to further signify the 
negative emotion of this portion of the poem.  This part of the poem pluralizes the subject, 
making it seem impersonal as if to personify, "cold steel."

The second part of the poem is shaped like a heart.  This portion of the poem focuses on one 
subject, is more personal or intimate.  It indirectly advises the reader, through the actions of 
the one subject, to let go of one’s pain and pursue love once more, in essence, restarting 
one’s heart, starting life anew.

The word “blood” is where the knife is cutting into the heart, blood will flow from the injury.

The word “love” is at the bottom of the second part of the poem.  Love is the deepest 
emotion, “from the bottom of the heart.”
