John Kipling Lewis

(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 Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
