Publishing a poetry book and chose this poem to be in it! Wish me luck, friends! :")

Author's age when written

If anyone has any suggestions, I’ve been trying to work on my poetry, so any insight or thoughts would be appreciated. :)


I could write a poem about how amazing your poetry is, but then I’d get discouraged about how cheesy and meaningless my poem looked next to yours. So I’m not gonna do that.

In all seriousness, this is gorgeous. The imagery is perfect, the rhythm is flawless, the metaphors are deep, and the way you repeat the third line on the last verse is perfection. I’m going to have to read through it again a few times to let it’s beauty fully sink in.

To sum up my horribly voiced thoughts: you have a great gift with words, dear. Thank you for sharing that gift with us.

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.

Double post. Feel free to ignore xDD
