your soul is an acoustic
black and white picture
movie reel
captive sunlight
never yielding to release
giving shadows a new taste
of elegance, quiescent
the tranquil luminescence
that can trap a heart

of slow motion
just as flammable

acoustic is, for me, a definite inclusion in my list of up and coming works. Well done, I feel proud reading this.

Its soft, its subtle, its poignant, and the best part is.... Its lukewarm; its like someone has a guitar banging in the back of the room, there's turmoil and personal grudges pouring out, while the man is making sense out of this madness - and doing it like a man, at that.

This is inspiring stuff, and no doubt will remain one of those critiques I haply look forward to reconsidering every time I read this work. Well done!
