Dark Tranquilities

October 28, 2009
Fractured inside my shell,
as I wonder what is about me.
Confused with curious assumptions,
while solace inches me to breathe.
Darkness consuming me,
as it pushes me deeper into my slumber.
A dream, awakening me,
sprouting me out to what lies asunder.

Hello. I really enjoy your work. Your thoughts and phrases capture me and remind me of my own work. I'd love it if you could read some of my work and comment it/ rate it? I'd love to further discuss our writings. People like you peak my interest and when my interest is peaked, look out. :D I'd highly suggest you read my two works "Tomorrow's Fate" and "Staring Into Me." Keep it up. Seriously. I'd like to see more posted. I'm a fan. :p

This is great, I love the description and convoluted order, the only thing is, on the line "solace inches me to breathe", I think you might want to change your wording, because it doesn't make any sense the way it is. But I still love your work use and it just digs at your brain. Great job! (thanks for the comment!)

His phrase about solace inching him to breathe makes perfect sense. Solace can mean to comfort, but it also means- 2. comfort in sorrow, misfortune, or trouble. Finding comfort in the misfortune of his mind brings him to continue breathe. To me, it makes perfect sense. Maybe you'd have to feel like the author to understand.
