A poem about a writer (a fictional character) who has been writing solely about the same two themes: depression and love, over and over again. The house of course, is a symbol for the writer's creative mind, which is now decaying from writing upon only those two themes.

The title came first before the poem itself. It was one of those things that latched onto my mind and wouldn't let go.

Just to clarify "the writer" is not referring to me. 

Edit: So this is my second DD and I've got to say that seeing it with the DD banner really surprised me at first. Anyway thank you and thanks also to any who faved or were kind enough to leave a comment.

I've tried too many times to say this eloquently, but it's three in the morning, so I'm just going to be straightforward: the word choices were so beautiful I had to stop each stanza to just let my mind picture the images you painted. I'm going to come back to this every time I need inspiration for anything so I can try to capture the same feeling I just had reading this the first time. Thank you so much for writing such a beautiful poem.

I felt that writer succeeded in not only stirring our emotions but painted a dark word picture in our minds itself. Very captivating.

you've got a good meter going, but the punctuation is waaaaay too much. use your line breaks and meter and drop a lot of the punctuation and you've got something quite good here

I'm not anywhere as good with words to even dream up something as great as this is. The words fill me with inspiration to make something colorful, but I am not good at that, either. Thank you for writing this.

Thank you. I'm glad my poem has given you inspiration to draw something colourful. I think you'll draw something that will be brilliant and even if it's not good; keep practising. Practice helped me to hone my skill and I still practice. I know it's one of the oldest clichés out there but practice makes perfect. If you doubt yourself you'll never realise your potential.

Thank you. Indeed it's something as a poet I aspire to write poems that are original. My newest one is about prejudice. I have written quite a few depression and romantic themed poetry myself but I try at least to do something different with those themes. I think at the time I wrote this I was frustrated seeing the same old themes popping up in my inbox.

Firstly i find the rhythm intensely satisfying. The repeated line 'in the house of poetry' and the way the poem reverberates the same message about the two emotions most encapsulated in banal verse in a recurring format lends a sort of musical credence to this. The imagery in this poem is exceptional, smeared over with black makeup at one minute and dripping with store-bought valentine and cheap chocolate candy the next. And angels supercharged with an acute enmity for lethargic verse drop in, voicing a call to create, instead of run over the same worn paths that turns readers into lethargic perusers, and finally into poetry apathetics. It is a poem that needed writing, that begged to be written, for the sake of sanity and the existence of originality in meters and metaphors everywhere, and you sir, have risen to the challenge with this fine work.

Very interesting, and very cool, again I love you use refrains. I also love the imagery for both the house and for the muse of the writer. Nicely done!

:iconnemox7:
NemoX7 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2014   Writer
Thanks. Yeah I used the refrains, especially for the first, middle and final stanzas as a mean to keep the poem grounded and in a theory to remind the reader the setting was still situated in this dilapidated house of course a metaphorical image for the state of the writer's mind. The muses came into being as means to personify those voices you have while thinking. No doubt any writer speaks to his or her self internally as they weigh up what's either required, a piece of dialogue, characterisation, and so forth. I rather enjoyed writing this one. :)

For me your poem has a musicallity, the repetition of the first sentence establishing a rythm, a circular motion if you wish.
As if you find yourself walking around in circles in this at the same time dreadful, painful and attiring place. 
It looks to me you have been doing it for a while, considering your description, so, you expressed well this feeling of imprisonement.

Well done!
