Great metaphor here! It's really so true, haha. I love how you don't just lay down a metaphor and drop it; you pick out details of the image and keep drawing parallels. The depth you go to makes this piece really creative and unique.
I really liked the stanza about withdrawals. The tone shifted so drastically I could just /feel/ the emotions attached to your words. Impressive manipulation of your readers.
I thought the wording got a little loose toward the end. You didn't have as many strong images and the word choice wasn't very strong. Still, I enjoyed the piece as a whole. It made me smile at the simplicity but also think about some more serious point you brought up.

Marvelous. "we'd rather cut off our-write hand-than give up", is a remarkable wordtwist. The conceptualization, and comparison of this helps the reader understand the drive, and will of a true writer. Good work. MD:77.

The ending of this is subtly powerful; I really like it. The concept is something to love, too.
I've been through the withdrawl! I haven't really written since school started. Ow. _
Nice work, vixen. It captures the essence of writing's soul-squeezing bind (to be pleasant about it).

A nice sentiment and true, in cases. As always, an intriguing lay-out and overall form. I did most enjoy that capital letter of Passion, very interesting and wonderful touch. A good poem is all I can say.

Oh, it reminds me of NaNoWriMo. Anyway.
Love this a lot. Wonderful description; I espescially love the "ever-filling bottle" part.
| SirScott chapter 1 . 10/7/2007
Wow, that's true. Writing is an addiction. You really captured the feelings of every true writer. I'm going to put this one in my favorites.
