    What I'm seeing so far is mostly pretty generic.

    Nah, what I wrote is pretty terrible and incoherent. Never seems to come out how it sounds in your head.

Songwriting is a very exciting and cathartic experience for me but does not happen very often, maybe 2 or 3 times a year.

    I kind of took your poem as fighting against an enemy that happens to be love, or maybe the enemy is the feeling of in love.

    Sometimes I like to write something I consider opposite to whats there so I can better understand? Thats why I feel like its a poem about fighting against falling in love.

    I’m going to give myself a couple of hours before I read more into your poem. I keep finding my brain trying to make up music for it, since it was mentioned they were lyrics. :3

    That's remarkably similar. I wrote that last year... now I feel ignorant, is that a quotation or did you write that?

    I wrote that based off your post lol.

    I’m interested in the poem now.

    Edit: I rewrite poems sometimes to understand them. That was my version of a rewrite, to better understand word choices and word play.

    Just now? Damn, that's fantastic.


    My poem is a bit layered in being read both as the the ending of a stormy relationship and looking into the eyes of someone that no longer loves you.

    Where it must be confusing, was that it was written about someone with bright blue eyes, and longing for the sparkle they once had.
