I can't burn the street down, the tar will fill our lungs, I can't fix the bridges, or the bolts bedded in our tongues. I can't explain the constant, buried deep beneath the rose, with all the other things I broke; death and all erodes.
I'm Kate. I'm 26 years old and ... fucking it all up.
I've let my training kick in and now I find it impossible to open up to people. I've lost my closest friends, my partner, and myself, somewhere in that.
I am so proud and happy to be back on deviantart, and particuarly to be running #BurdenedHearts, but some nights I just get lonely. and I want to talk to people.. so say hi, and lets try and find some common ground.
You don't have to burn anything apart from the impressions that is blocking your mind and devouring your heart. You are young and you are suppose to make mistakes don't beat yourself about it. Everything is okay. You find it impossible to open up to people that is because you respect the information that is personal to you by preferring to keep it with yourself or only share it with someone who would value it with same respect Vent it out woman, let it go, watch yourself as it exits your door Qita
Hi there, there's quite a lot to take out of those four lines.
I feel there's a sense of hopelessness when something appears to be impossible to achieve. I believe this is adequately shown with your repetition of "I can't" in the first two lines.
The third lines "I can't" runs into a pivot for the poem, where instead of talking about hopelessness against impossibility, its turned towards an excuse "buried deep beneath the rose". "Rose" is a great word choice, which in this context, I believed to be an allusion of love, which has hidden the narrator's excuse, be it for hopelessness, or something else entirely.
The very last line stands out most of all, and makes the reader think."Death and all erodes" gives the poem a thought-provoking ending. Turning around a theme of impossible hopelessness into a hopeless possibility, as "death" is a concept of life that can not be mended, escaped from, nor can be hidden.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. And I'm very happy I took the time to study it and give you my observations. Even if they were not your original ideas in the initial composition of this delectable ode.
In relation to your description. I too, find it very hard to open up to people, and spend many a night alone just writing without speaking to anyone: even on dA. I enjoy myself on here and I have taken the time to try and do a bit more to help artists in the community who may feel they're being overlooked. I really hope in that aspect I'm doing the right thing. Plus I'd like to mention on another side-side note, you're running your new group splendidly.
Loneliness can sometimes be good, especially when things get very chaotic. Hi, I'm James, and I'm glad you enjoy running your group. It wouldn't be the same without your guiding hand. It reminds me too, that I need to start getting my own group into gear. Been too long since I've actually properly managed it.
Indeed. I've left mine alone for a year, since personal reasons meant I couldn't regularly keep a tabs on it. Well, being homeless at the time, with no internet connection available on a regular basis didn't help me much.
My loneliness is akin to isolation. Nearly all my friends have now forgotten about me, or don't have the time anymore. Sigh. Loneliness is a horrible thing to experience, but I've experienced it for so long, it's become a part of me.
This is an amazing piece but not as amazing as you; you're always so supportive of others and create all these wonderful groups to help people. So even though you might not believe me you're not fucking it all up. I'm really glad that I know you
You're welcome. I can't say I fully understand this feeling but I do a bit and I can get not being able to accept help as you strike me as one of those people who would walk a thousand miles for other people but find it hard to do something for yourself. Sorry if I've got you wrong on that but just to let you know I still think you're amazing and incredibly strong
