Convoluted MAG

By Matt C., Beverly, MA

A caffeinated, turbulent, unstoppable warp-spasm of energy
Explodes into rooms, knocking people over with embraces
Screaming their names as she pulses with radiance,
This perpetual firecracker spins out of control
I hate her
Fizzling out into coherence, her vibrant colors fading to normalcy,
The buoyant flames neutralized
She sits alone, siphoning off her excesses
Life-size, she unlocks her troubles
Speaking trustingly and quietly sobbing
I love her.

The juxtaposition of her two very different traits coupled with your two strong statements ("I hate her"/"I love her") worked extremely well not only to give emotion to the piece, but also to paint a real picture of who this person is. I really enjoyed it a lot.

Sometimes people employ a certain personality, only to hide their weaknesses and fragile feelings.

Great job!
