The world went away
wild and untethered
from now-loose neurons -
Oh how it flew
for that blind moment
before the lacework broke
and flung serotonin
against baroque wallpaper.
This piece was inspired by this gorgeous drawing:


The day the world went away by wiosny

I think this is a beautiful piece of poetry with great impact, that I had to read again right away. I just have a couple of suggestions.

Perhaps you don't need the second hyphen in 'now-loose-neurons'; the first one I agree is needed to tie the words together, but I wouldn't do it to a noun anyway, and I think it would have more impact as an isolated word.

I also wonder whether 'wall' would work better as the final word; 'wallpaper' seems to lose impact by being a bit too long, and since there are so many kinds of wallpaper it's hard to imagine the one in this image. So for me, it works better as:
and flung serotonin
against the wall.


That's all I have. Hope it helps!

To be honest, its taken me a really long time to digest this poem properly. I had a hard time retaining the sense within the poem. I felt rather than saw when I read it. Which offered a different effect of impact.

As for technique, I don't know whether you meant to do it, but the subject abruptly changes in-between. The 1st three lines proceed well, until you reach the middle, there is a sudden change there. Since it is your poem, I will not judge so harshly.

In summation, this poem is very different, and very well done.

"serotonin" makes an excellent twist near the end here.

You've done a lovely job of putting another artist's work to words.  I think I like the idea of poets building on artwork.

:giggle: I don't do it very often, it feels like stealing, but sometimes it writes itself in my head and I think - oh well, might as well write it down now it already exists. lol

It is very heavy, as previously said. My brain linked the picture to your words and went 'what a awesome yet serious way to describe suicide by gunshot wound to the head. (If that was not the intention then pardon my wacky head - blame it on the eye infection working its way into my brain)

heavy indeed. although the first line feels a bit too calm/neutral/bland in contrast to the rest of the poem... maybe you could replace "went" with something.
however feel free to disregard that. good work.

Hey, that is awesome. It feels very heavy almost like having, seemingly the whole world upon your shoulders. Great job I cried a little reading this poem.
