Life Cycle of a Bleeding Heart by mcptato Life Cycle of a Bleeding Heart by mcptato
Been posting more of my poetry wips on twitter, looking for feedback.
TBH, writing poetry again feels like I've been reunited with an old friend. I've honestly been loving it. 

The flower is a bleeding heart. Get it? HEH

---------------------

Poem for those who can't read my handwriting: 

At one point it was paragraphs, essays even.
captivating me with stories, I wanted to know more!
Adding so many details that I sometimes felt bored.

Then those essays turned to sentences
A terse summary, to the point. Something I liked
Yet, lacking key details, something didn't feel right.

Slowly the sentences turned into phrases
Quick and witty with some kind of pun     
Always keeping me on my toes wasn't any fun. 

Phrases devolved into singular words
"Food, sex, sleep, kiss?"
then even the witty puns I began to miss.

The words turned to silence
accompanied by a cold blank stare

Silence turned to nothing
Because I learned to not care.


Then one day...


Nothing turned to something
as nothing was no longer there.

I LOVE IT!!!! Your stories are clear to see but hard to listen. Writing your stories is more visible to the eye, but unnoticed sound to the ear! Keep writing!

Can you please elaborate on the ending!
Does it mean he fell in love with someone else?

I absolutely adore this. I think your illustrations really impact the words (or perhaps the words impact the illustrations). Either way, it's a wonderful piece.

Thank you! I'm glad you think so, I never want one part (the illustrations or the words) to overtake the other, but live in harmony within my visual poetry heheh (:

I love this so much.. and it just reminded me of how I've been losing interest in writing myself,
feeling bored and all — but I loved the ending so much. It was unexpected yet hopeful.

Same (kinda)! We used to have them in my backyard when I was younger until my father got rid of them. Don't remember why though.
