|11:55 pm - In case you didn't know how poets think|
When a poet posts a poem, and no one comments, here's what s/he thinks: I am a terrible poet. I should never write poetry again. I should go and burn every poetry book I have ever written, to save myself from the embarrassment of ever having it found.
Or something like that. We're very insecure creatures. If said poet is also a Pisces - oy. You haven't seen such insecurity.
Which is to say, I posted two poems and would love any feedback on them. Because even critical feedback (other than just, "this sucks") would be better than silence. Because I can read all sorts of things into silence, but at least with criticism or questions I feel like my existence is validated. Questions are also OK. Your honest impressions and thoughts are what I want.
Thank you. This has been a Public Service Announcement.

Then again, if you were trying to think that much more rationally it might make you a less-talented poet. We love you like you are. :-)
I wish I could think of something to say that didn't sound shallow and uninformed when it comes to poetry. It's just so foreign to how my brain works that I don't even know how to respond.
