STARE

There is a LOOK!!!

Like cold ice.
from men and mice,
I will not ignore,
The warmness in a motionless shore,
Keeping me from the insanity
The stare in my vanity
taunting me
haunting me
promises looking straight at me
tears of serenity 
free from all mental stress or anxiety
drowning in self silence,
holding on to balance,
my eyes flick vindictively.
spellbinding  aggressively 
staring at movement in a ghostly way 
hiding like baldness under a toupee,
wider than the projection of a silhouette
sleeping away the visions I want to forget,

Like I said there is a LOOK!!!

I'll never understand,
From mice to: man.

    PD An interesting and creative write. A little spooky and eerie in some parts, knowing we are stalked and watched by hidden eyes. Thanks for the great comment on my Pirates Plea poem. Hugs

    'hiding like baldness', ha! Mice do have glaring stares, don't they? Just like men when they are upto something actually. Nice poem PD!

    It's nice to be in the same mind set as you. So that means we can always tell what the other is thinking. Mmmm that can be dangerous lol. Later luv.

    Hey, Irma. How are you today?? From your blog it sounded like some folks had blocked you unintentionally but those who did it purposefully, I am sorry that happened! You are sweet as can be. I have a question about your contest if you could please answer me quickly.Soupmail.

    I am stopping by to thank you for your comment on my poem "Touching" P.D. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Love, Carol

    Whoa, Whoa, females are the complicated ones Nikko---Guys are painfully simple, naive, and a little bit cute maybe and perhaps occasionally frustrating but hey! The mirror is the most confusing to any of us is it not. Love this P.D. & thanks for a fun contest, Craig

    hmm maybe we should try to think from man to mice? or I think I would understand mighty mouse better than any guy, haha! But yup, a stare could melt and burn you....

  1. Date: 1/24/2012 6:48:00 AM

    Thank you for your kind comments on my writings P.D. It was a pleasure to read your poetry today loved seeing all you have written in the last week. Love, Carol

    maybe a stare of desire. p.d love the rhythm of this as it flows towards the end. harry

  1. Date: 1/23/2012 2:52:00 AM

    This is really very cleverly done. I could see myself staring at my own reflection and trying to see into myself. The part about from mice to men left me but the rest fit right in. Like you say it's a stare we can't ignore. Here in our vanity we taunt ourselves and promise to make ourselves better. We look ourselves over and critique ever line every wrinkle. A fine piece that makes the reader think. God Bles, JB thanks so much for your encouraging comments. God Bless, JB

    I like the mice and men theme P D,, good words from you today...)

  1. Date: 1/22/2012 2:57:00 PM

    all kinds of cool things in this poem of yours PD..............including that baldness simile, staring at movement, personification of promises. all cool. If I was better educated i'd come up with a much better word than "cool" but that seems to be topo dog in my vocabulary for now. I like the name of it along with that pretty eye staring at ...Movement?

    PD this is very interesting and the imagery is astonishing. A great write.

  1. Date: 1/22/2012 11:20:00 AM

    from mice TO man or from mice AND men. You said it both ways and it makes a big difference in your meaning. haha. This is really interesting, PD. I quite like it. Love the way you said "hiding like baldness under a toupee." Your imagery is always so unique. Hey, you went and did the idea that I was going back in forth on in my mind, whether to do a clerihew contest!! well, I can always do a new one later down the road. And that way, you can enter YOUR best one!! (or else I will make it even harder and say to use a brand new one. heehee) I hope your contest fills up fast now. MAny people are doing great clerihew. Luv, Andrea

    Hmm, a very interesting poem and a little scary in parts. Seems to do with death and rebirth. Perhaps I am wrong. Thanks for reading my most recent post. I indeed do fear God. With all the power he has, he can zap you out in a second. Take care and keep writing, Jancarl

    ps...I am finding out that they just can't help it...it's the way God made them...oh, yes. We will talk to God about this one THING one day...yes, we will...

  1. Date: 1/22/2012 6:29:00 AM

    Your poetry is very very good, PD..it seems as tho it has really grown even more over the past 2 months..your expressions are stronger and your energy is thru the roof..so whenever the urge to write hits you, just pick up that jeweled noted book and plug away..I think it's great that you were in a slump early last year just so you can realize that YOU DO COME OUT OF THEM A BETTER POET THAN B4. ...Like I said,,,there are gonna be a lot of poets going CAMPING this year...ha ha ha.. Enjoyed this new one..immensely. Gwendolen

    Cute one...Enjoyed reading this morn..The surprise ending was thought changer..Thanks for the kind review..Yes, the dampness comes with the rain..It is a welcome presence sometimes in the heat of summer for it refreshes and cools the air but in winter it is cold...Sara

    Yes ..Sara, the ending is the change...how we all view things at different rates... the perception changes at the end... I was wondering what mice think of us when they stare at us....lol
