deep and guttural, diffused --
a howl dampened by sagging clouds,
chilled by some october's waning gibbous
this is how I hate you
though I tell myself and say

* * *

Don't worry, everything's fine. :)

I return your hug right back (glad you included a "disclaimer" though). Sometimes we writers just need to work it out right? Regardless of the ferocity of the volatile emotion behind this it is visually just so beautifully written. I had to look up gibbous, had never heard that word before. It is perfect.

Thanks, Jenn. You know how a while back I had said that I had managed to keep from associating any Mraz songs with anyone? well, somewhere along the way, I had inadvertently linked one to an apparently former friend. But I like the song enough to listen to it anyhow. But today, when it played at work, I got this flash of teeth-grinding angry frustration over this person.

Anyhow, that's where it came from.

Glad you liked it... glad you got to give the dictionary a work out too. ;)

That is what I think of me getting an RSS feed for my journal. You must WORK to see the rantings of Zila!

In all actuality, I'm just too lazy to do it. Sorry.

i like the disclaimer too. this was pretty powerful and whenever i post something like that and don't leave one someone always has to see if i need to be institutionalized or something.

anger can be a powerfully creative tool, good job working it out, as jenn said.
