you just made me think of a lunatic. it also could have been about drugs, but then there are the people who make the argument that it was just a sweet story with a metaphor. then I'm confused.

anyway, awesome! :P

Hello, I teach 9th grade English, and I was wondering if I could get your permission to use your poem as a great example of concrete poetry. I favorited it a long time ago, and I think my students this year would absolutely love it and that it would inspire some of the artists in my class to create something like yours. Please let me know either way. Thank you!

Hi! I was just browsing through some of my old work, and ran across this comment.

Just wondering if you ever actually used this poem in one of your English classes. =D Out of curiosity. ^-^ That'd be so cool if you did~ :D

Yes, I did/do!  We study E.E. Cummings' concrete poetry in my sophomore English class, and I pass your poem around the class as an example of more modern concrete poetry. :)  Thanks for giving me permission to share!

Wow, that's so nice to hear! ^^ Thank you so much for sharing my poem. =) This makes me so happy <3 You just made my day. ^^


You know what, I'm going to visit your gallery today :O Because I just realized I haven't read any of your writing before, and you must be amazing, so. :D (Do you also have a blog or anything? =) Just wondering; if you do, I'd love to check it out. ^^ Mine are just-paperdreams.tumblr.com and rainsharmin.wordpress.com)

My name is Rain, by the way. ^^

Also, Happy New Year! =D

Amazing. I hear it as one of the Brave New Voices.... it has that "something about it", not just a great poem, but delivered in the right 'voice', it becomes a message. Powerful words. This is really good. And so deserving of the DD and DLD you received. Congratulations. :aww:

this is the link to HBO's Brave New Voices, if you're interested. Yours would do well here. [link]

And I really must thank you for including the text in the description. I almost started turning my monitor around!

I love this! Fun and thought provoking at the same time. It's something I've pondered before too... what do you do once you've reached the top? Do you just keep climbing or do you settle? Personally, I'd rather spend my entire life working for a goal even if I don't live to achieve it. At least then my life had meaning because I had something worth fighting for. Hopefully I would have achieved several short term goals along the way though.

Sorry for the pointless ramble. Congrats on the well deserved DD, and thank you for giving me something to think about when I go to bed tonight :+favlove:

i am so glad you found something to think about, because of this. no, no. not pointless at all.
i love to know other people's thoughts on things.
especially stories/wishes/hopes. ^-^
thanks for sharing.
i am glad you have a goal to strive/live for. =] (ammakinganassumption) it's nice to feel as though the things we do are working toward something + serving a purpose. ^-^

thank you so much, again. <3
