RE: You'd think it is poetic to hunger for release.
Thank you for sharing your story in The Ink Well, @warpedpoetic. Your writing is always so poetic and lyrical.
One thing to note: we have rules about not posting stories that involve brutality of women. (You can see them on the right on our home page.) Just want to call that to your attention. There is the suggestion in your story (though it's not quite clear) of the narrator killing his lover by burning and placing her in an urn. We ask writers not to post stories with themes of violence against women here, as they can cause PTSD for the many many women who have suffered abuse. We are leaving this one, as the killing is not overt or gruesomely portrayed, but please be aware of this rule going forward. Thank you.
