Thank you all so much for your comments, favorites, and attention! I'm honored to receive them, and doing my best to personally convey that to each of you. I apologize if I can't get to you right away.
This could be about all the useless crap in people's lives (including my own) and how humans always want more and more as if it will make them feel more satisfied, but in reality we would best off getting away from all these petty distractions that clog up our lives. I don't know though, I didn't write the poem... :/
That's a variation on what I wanted it to mean. I wrote it a long time ago so I don't remember the exact thought process that brought me to it, but it was basically about how people get so caught up with something and forget there's another part to it. Does that make any sense?
Your interpretation is very similar. I'm happy I could both communicate what I meant, and make someone think of something new! Each are immeasurably important to me.
A perfect deviation deserving of such an achievement! I am so happy for you, that I cannot express my excitement for you! This is wonderful; I hope many people will come to recognize and appreciate your talents after this honor (: It truly was a gorgeous poem. I especially loved the decided spacing between "breathing" and "out." In my opinion, it really immersed the reader within the narrator's words... I actually found myself holding my breath until I read the word of release . Fantastic job, and I cannot say congrats enough!! You deserved this
Aw =] What kind words! Thanks so much for your feedback and flattery. I love to hear you held your breath; to me, an achievement like that merges the physical and mental, and to be able to do that with words will always be a phenomenon to me.
