this reads to me like a double revelation: the sweet tormenting voices suggesting possibilities in those 'visions' yet, at the same time, a revelation by the poem's narrator that they will not be listened to nor acted upon and that, instead, they will revel in what is real (and achievable) to them. a closing oneself off from the possibilities of love as a form of self-preservation? that's sad.
the image of the framed daylight has me thinking of a person who is too unsure, not mentally prepared to chance walking through the doorway of possibilities. even though the lines don't mention a doorway—might just as well be windows, the 'glass' closing the narrator off from the other side of what is/what could be.
since you have absurdity further down, is this word a play on 'obscurities/absurdities', or a typo? i know you're not prone to posting with typos so i just wanted to know
thanks for this entry, Poets_Revenge
Thanks so much, Butters for the great analysis and noticing the typo in my poem, I appreciate the insightful critique..
Congrats to the winners, it was really interesting to see the many perspectives on a single word and the possibilities of it, this was a great comp idea
