Meeting The Bar:  Soliloquy 

"Soliloquy is a form of speech spoken aloud by a character but addressed to no one except his or her self. The purpose of the soliloquy is to allow the audience to get a glimpse of the character’s inner thoughts and feelings while keeping them hidden from the other characters. The soliloquy differs from a monologue in that the latter is spoken so that other characters may be made privy to the speaker’s point of view. A soliloquy can express thoughts, emotions, intentions, plans and desires. It can influence the unfolding of the plot and can create irony."

"Now for the “Quoi?” (What?) part of the prompt. It’s obvious that I am asking you to write a soliloquy, but I would like you to make an effort to include some clear examples of one or more poetic devices of your choosing in your self-talk."

Wish that I could taste
the stars melting
on my tongue, wrapping
it in silken, sweet
hot fudge.  I am content
to gaze at beauty
I cannot grasp, thereby
leaving purity where
it belongs.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

  5. This is just exquisite. Synesthesia is one of my favorite poetic devices and this is delicious. Thank you.
