Dreams of Suicide

by Snoink

In my dreams of death
I stand on top a cliff
My eyes closed shut,
The wind willing me to jump.
But in the back of my mind
I wonder...

What is the potential energy I have
Standing here?

Is this a review?

I like how you made yourself seem so vulnerable. Did you really have a dream about suicide? I like how to gave the wind personification you made the poem sound even cooler by doing that. Overall it was short, but very well written :)

:) Amusing, and I liked how it showed the tie in to the backward haunting thoughts of your mind. I wish there weren't so many capitals, but the format make sense for the sake of adding an independently standing and important phrase.

Your latest poems are witty; you've found your simple style. But I'd like to see a bit more in the next effort.

*ugh, physics* Now that my dislike for physics is out of the way :D

The ending was great. I thought of it as a light ending, definately like something that would happen in a dream, but I can see how it could be a little sadder, if you so choose.

I read it at first (ignoring the punctuation for some strange reason) and wanted to put a period after "cliff" and make the next line the start of a new sentence. And then I went back and wondered how I could ignore punctuation in the first place. Just a thought if you're looking for something else to filter through your brain.

Haha, good twist on the emo poem. :D

It was funny. In an odd sort of way.

Okay Snoink once again you've made me smile, but thats not good today (my face is sunburned)

I couldn't stop laughing when I read this, it just sounds like one of those things that I would write if I had any decent skill in poetry.

This is defiently a pick me up poem. :D

I laughed, at first, but then I realized that's actually a brilliant thought, too. Very clever combination. It could really go either way, you know? Potential energy turns into kinetic energy as the narrator jumps, but it could also be another way of saying, "What do I still have to contribute to the world?"

Maybe I'm overthinking it. XD Love it.

You have a brilliant sense of humour Snoink and, I think, a deep hatred of physics. If they combine to give this sort of poetry then you should be forced to go to class more often! Hehe. Anyway, I liked it a lot and physics just happens to be my least favourite subject.

It's short, but I actually really like the concept. And, like everyone else said, I laughed out loud too. ^_^

The wnd willing me to jump.
a typo, me thinks?

I liked the scientific ending to it. Twas cute. should the second line end in a period?
