"Stay golden"
- Johnny (The Outsiders, S. E. Hinton)


Waste deep in dirty incandescent light
I cant even rub it out of my eyes
The silence is an insect symphony
Wrapping itself around my quiet mind

They call it silence;
I call it the sound of a fever
or a cloud,
screaming

Ernest Hemingway: I hate it.

Ernest Hemingway: If it's bad, I'll hate it. If it's good, then I'll be envious and hate it even more. You don't want the opinion of another writer. 

Another excellent poem from the wondrous PaigeStreet. But I have to disagree with jade, you aren't very good at poetry — you're amazing at it. Anyway, back to the poem. Short, but very sweet, and although I like the buzzing silence that comes with staying home alone, I understand where you're coming from. Very nice. 5/5

And when I say you are "very god," I mean you're "very good." *facedesk*

Ha-ha! You said your poetry "isn't that good," and now I can prove you wrong! ;) I really do love this, actually. You're very god at choosing just the right words, and it's quite evocative.
