Nice work buddy, ....." poetry " is self expression
ignore negative views and focus on your heart's feelings

Thou and thee transported me to another time and place, and gave the poem a mythical or dreamlike quality. I liked the rawness of the poem and the sensitivity. As an expression of your feelings, I think it worked very well. The " ink erased and the text forgotten" is deep - a negativity but with hope. The poem is the hope, that's not erased or the text forgotten. Anyway, I hope you find my comments useful. Best wishes, Peter.

A, thou? Thee?'gainst?Thee wide? what is this, the 19th-century? Jezus, please stop writing and immerse yourself in some good contemporary poetry. Reviving bad 19th-century amateur verse is no favor to anyone! Good poetry should be your goal, not ego-stroking.Replies for this message:

It is puzzling why someone would want to use such old English terms in their work. There are plenty of contemporary formalists (or near formalists) to look to, if one likes a little meter. -LP
