Lack Luster Vanity

Can I create a depth 

on a one dimensional plane?

Would you be capapble to 

grasp what i try to portray?

terrifies me, burn 

in darkness, burn in vain, 

a depravity too tragic

to behold, however new

ever so bold. 

Indescribable beauty

realms of an

It is very hard to create depth in one dimension. You do. You do by your words. That's the art of it. As an artist uses paints, textures, light, etc. to create depth and dimension on a palette, a poet must use words, phrasing, metaphor, sounds, movement as such to create moods and images to help the reader to travel to or see places and feel deeply felt emotions. You do it with each poem you write. Better and better as you all practice and learn and read and learn more from ourselves and others. It is our craft. It is our love of it. Poetry is who you are. :) kathy
