I am a Failure

Posted on September 3, 2010 at 2:51 PM

To you

My writing has no import,

My reading no class.


You make all my words

Seem like carcasses of thoughts,

My thoughts 

Irrational whims.


Nothing I do or say

Is enough to win your respect,

You would have me love you,

You tell me 

you love me too.


Your apathy to my desires

Sometimes makes me wonder,

Do you love me,

Or the way 

I love you?

Wow! Quite a statement in contrast to your last. The style is very direct. I like the image of "carcasses" of thoughts. I wonder if you could search to find an appropriate image or two that is equally powerful to insert into each section. Remember...balance. Good job!
