That's very cool, 'Gal. It has a tactile reality which I strive for in my writing, a sort of sensorial immediacy which is excruciatingly transporting.Thanks for sharing ;)
sensodyne might help
Ouch! You know, if love hurts like the dentist, then maybe you are not doing it right. I'm just saying...Great poem, though! Interesting, and conveys a feeling.
"My painting is visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question 'What does that mean'? It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable." René Magritte An A-Z of surrealism, by Phil Daoust W is for war. Without the first world war, surrealism might not have existed; without the second it might not have withered. The trenches gave birth to dada, anti-art for a society that did not deserve beauty. After dada faded away, many of the malcontents resurfaced as surrealists. Among them was Ernst, who had written: "On 1 August 1914 Max Ernst died. He was resurrected on 11 November 1918 as a young man who aspired to find the myths of his time."Two decades later the rise of fascism convinced many surrealists that political engagement (or self-preservation) was more important than artistic experimentation.
I flinched reading this. Then I sat rubbing my jaw to make the pain go away.The sign of good poetry, to me, is to ellicit a viceral reaction. Well done.
I too have experienced the pain of wanting to kiss someone, but never in the teeth :)Somebody had to say it...
Nice poem.I like the way you repeat the first line of each stanza. It read a bit like a sonnet.However, it's theme made me think of of a song called "Pulling Teeth" by the band Green Day/ It also equated love with dentistry, but your verse was not quite as violent.
've had that feeling. i like the poem. it brings it back!
Love hurts when you don't brush regularly.;>)
