Sanctioned Screaming

I close my eyes, think of myself as being there to where screams are free to roam, then bounce back, immune to tortured souls allowed to spread in waves For some reason, Ararat comes to mind right now but to be honest, Arayat should suffice surrender, surrender... Surrender All these rocks-- can I disturb you? Even just this once. let me let out my sanctioned screaming, and release it to these mountains. 8420161147p851206a

This sad poem gets DIGGit points from me! I love hearing from you! Thx, your comments and help are always appreciated. I did mean to use "exercised" in this case for the sake of wordplay. Mario, was a kid who never exercised (lifted weights,ect.) b4 prison. Exercise was key in helping the 7 years go by. He also became a poet! Mario requested it to be published. Upon , I will notify my editor/Publisher of the spelling change. Thank you, please continue to help if possible ~JOEY

Love the theme, because that is what it comes down to after so many years, just a "blink." Great stuff, nikko. Love, daver

now that i read this again, i still think lonliness, but perhaps the woman in the red dress is a memory of the speaker? remembering happier times before something came between them. (just another thought about how it could be interpreted) hope you are well :)

I came back to this poem today hungry for another Nikko write....I shall just engross myself in the 2nd stanza. Just this scene alone is a pleasure to read. It stands alone as a poem of its own...frolicking and making footprints in the sand, imitating a crab's awkward walk. You wrote this sooo well. This scene represents a light hearted interaction between 2 lovers. So much flavor! ......hey , where's lil batty today. You should place a live cam in your mango tree. I'm curious what he's doin.

This is really super nikko. I think sometimes I am stuck in that bottle too. I want to thank you for spotting my spelling error. I think that is awesome that you helped me. It could have cost me the contest. I mean I might not place anyways but with a spelling error for sure I would not.

Hi Nikko~Yipeeee! You got that pen of yours back to work! You left your fans sitting here all alone...as tho we were in a bottle just waiting for you to walk by. ha ha. This is the most unique angle for a poem..Encapsulated, alone,...reaching out....this is mar-vel-ous! It is true that everything seems so distorted when you suffer from loneliness...u captured the essence of this emotion so well. Hats off to you....(hats off to your pet bat too!!) Gwendolen

What a brilliant analogy, Nikko, comparing loneliness to a ship in a bottle. There are a lot of people who shut themselves off from the outside world. It's a very lonely place to be. Sad message, but beautifully written! Love, Carolyn
