John Kipling Lewis

Rookie (3/12/1968 / Manhattan, KS)

Archtypical


Archtypical, I am not.

I know no one like me. No one to share my experiences who will truly understand my thoughts.

The people around me feel paper thin and translucent. They share a commonality.

They are archetypes and I am unalike.

    4. First of all, it's 'archetypical' - you spell it wrong twice and right once - surely this means at least one of the spellings in wrong.

    As for the poem itself, right now it's just an idea for a poem, which could work, but it's missing the poem aspects of it - imagery, details, concrete sensory content. (Report) Reply

    This one is okay and is a good use of words to describe feeling alone. I like this one, not because of the subject matter, but because of the way it is written. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
