How do yo do it? You've managed, once again, to put an entire life story into four single rows. You must've lived hundreds of years in a past life, this stuff is thought provoking and amazing! Nice job.
The ironic part about it is that I was just getting on DA to write a journal to vent, and on the front page I saw this, and knew before I even clicked on it that it would be from, as I now refer to you in my head, "my oaklung". (Literally goes like this: *sees poem on front page, reads it* says "oh I just know that must be written by my oaklungs!" *clicks the poem. sure enough, is one of yours*) Your poetry is, as I said last time I commented, always just what I need right when I need it. I clap for your brilliance!
Wow, so ignorant. It's on the front page, because she's managed to execute her writing in such a way other authors/poets cannot. Her "4 rows" can be left up to interpretation. yes, all poetry does this, but not so skillfully. She's not splattering the entire page about how she's feeling, or what she wants, she's posting something that everyone can relate to, in 4 rows. That's why it's so deep.
Emotions are what define people as who they are, but sometimes feelings get out of hand. I love your shorter poetry, it's so powerful but with so few words. It also has so many different ways it can be interpreted and often inspires me to write myself. This one especially, I tend to deal with my emotions by writing haha! I could almost imagine some of your shorter poetry appearing on T-shirts or wherever else neat quotes go.
Absolutely excellent top notch advice, appropriate for the front page! Next time I'm in the grocery store and I'm very upset that they don't have the brand of frozen vegetables I want, I will just SPILL THAT EMOTION everywhere, right in the middle of the grocery store.
