This is really wonderful, and I'm pretty horrified by some people's responses to it. It feels intensely personal and... I don't know, some of these comments are pretty rude.
This really is beautiful.

I take this as the person is depressed or some sort of that, and is fighting to stay alive... but not quite that. I don't know how to explain it. It's like fighting to beat that deadness. To recontrol what was once you.

Lovely work as always. I interpreted this very literally--a woman either dying physically or mentally while pregnant. I understand this probably has another more abstract meaning; would you care to elaborate on what you meant it to be?

Or sometimes, humor can get you in a lot of trouble. Trust me, if you've seen half the things I have you'd not take things so lightly.

It's okay, I get what you mean. Try not to look at the joke like an insult to the poem, but as one person's humorous interpretation of it.

I kinda like this, and don't get me wrong, I really, really REALLY don't want to sound super rude or anything like that, but... why the heck is this so popular? ._. in my opinion there is a lot of poetry out there that tops this and they scarcely have any views. sorry if it sounds mean, but I just don't understand... :shrug:

Can't speak for everyone but, for me, her words are "intoxicating" (I'm a french speaker, the word I'm looking for is «enivrant» but I really can't find an accurate translation of it :( The closer I can say of its meaning is it's like a feeling of light mirth caused by alcool consumption??)

Each of her poems seem to be crafted with feelings. They possess an inner story that you can feel throught the words, and each of them have a life of their own. Even her comments and descriptions are part of an unending "whole" («un tout» I mean) you can observe everywhere on her deviantart page. (example, see her answer to saveuswinds above, it is perfect).

I usually prefer long poems but Oaklungs had me addicted to all of hers. I can't think of another poet, from the past or contemporary, that evoques in me the same feelings than her when I read them (not that others are bad, it's just her style is so unique I haven't seen it elsewhere).

Again, this is just my personal reason as to why I love her. Others probably don't see it the same way than I.

If you discovered other poets as wonderful as her, please share their names! I'd be interested to check them :)

PS: damn I look like a creepy fan. But the true of it is I am one O:
