    Journal: This bugs me
    -------------------------------------------
    Mood: Frustrated
      
    Alright, even though I really appreciate getting comments and feedback it does really bug me that people seem to have this idea in their head that all poetry needs to be long and in depth and whatever other nonsense.

    Poetry is a form of writing. Period. The end. What you put into it is style. Poetry doesn't have to be overly expressive of one's feelings. You don't have to really get far into an idea to make it yours or to show you believe in it. Sometimes all you need to do is present a thought. Thoughts aren't always in depth. They aren't always long. If you're posing a question in the form of a poem do you really need to explore your feelings on the topic? You shouldn't.

    Maybe it just wasn't clear enough what I was doing. Maybe it's because so many people here are 13 - 16 and still believe that all poetry has to be super angsty and express your deepest darkness. Not that there's anything wrong with being 13 or 16. There is something wrong with having such a narrow definition of what poetry is.

    Try to understand the poem and understand the medium before you try to tell somebody you think they're doing it wrong. If you're going to tell me it's not long enough or expressive enough please understand that I meant for it to be that way. Unless I say I'm not sure if something is finished then it means I meant for it to be as short as it is. As non expressive of my innermost feelings as it is. I mean to be abrupt and to the point with my word choice. I'm not trying to be subtle.

    Think about what you're saying and know what you're talking about.

    Maybe from now on my descriptions should thoroughly explain what it is I am trying to achieve and strip away any ability to interpret them how you will. Tell everybody EXACTLY what the meaning is rather than let them decide for themselves. Make it very clear that everything within the poem is very deliberate. So I stop getting comments that my poems are too short and don't have enough feeling.

    I just wanted to say that I read some of your work and I like it. I like it a lot. You are a very expressive person. and I guess I'm attracted to your poems because you remind me so much of my best friend, whom I miss terribly. I hope to see more of your works. Keep writing. Have a great day!

    Thanks for the feedback on Children made of Cloth. I just sat down and started writing. That's how it came out. I guess I did think about rhyming somewhat... anyways, sorry the flow distracted you.
