I don't usually read stories or poetry on dA, but as I've said before, when someone favors my work, I do my damnedest to go to their page and return the favor. In wretchedteddy's case, it was worth the effort. His poetry is reminiscent of Jim Carroll (Basketball Diaries fame), and if you've read 'Fear of Dreaming', then you'll know what I'm talking about (and if you haven't read it, then it's highly suggested. Or better yet, go to wretchedteddy's page I will never pretend to be any good with words, so I feel a little out of sorts trying to describe his work, but here goes my best shot.

First, the trouble here is that each of his poems leaves me with a different feeling, so it's hard to lump them together into one category. The best I can do it passionate, sometimes dark, sophisticated, and the imagery his words call to mind is stunning. What I like best is the occasional vulgarity, done not for shock value but for emphasis. All in all, simply fantastic work, like glimpses into the multi-faceted world of human thought and emotion.

I've read a handful of his poems now, and I'm excited to get to the rest. But here is just ONE of my favorites:

A Little Longer Is All We Need
by ~wretchedteddy

in your insane world
where nothing really matters
and peoples hearts are free
you may think
and it may seem like
i can't stake a claim

when really

I've foregone the gold rush
in interest of seeing the stars light up

for when the beads of dew
turn into
rivers that turn into torrents
and down falls the deluge
that turns up your sweater

this is where i set firmly
my feet and draw air from
the ground
