and it is work,
and you will often come second to the job –
it’s best to know which pieces are fictions,
which ones are wishes,
and which parts are for you.
dA needs a category - besides Scraps - for "I'm still playing with this it probably isn't finished yet I just want to test the waters and maybe hook some ideas."
There is something about the flow that lessens its attraction however, and I am uncertain if this works for the poem, or against the poem, as that break (which comes around the dashes) seems an idea which fits there tucked within the poem, if I am making any sense.
At first I thought it might be something simple, as parenthesis instead of dashes, but I think that parenthesis too far remove the idea.
Actually, ignore everything I've written. The poem is right, my eyes were just wrong.
A work in progress category! That's what dA needs.
I've never really had the problem of people thinking the things I write are about them, mostly because I don't know the majority of the people who read my things. However, I've seen that a lot of people assume that if you post something sad, you're obviously depressed and need comfort, which I think is silly.
He gave me no explanation at all... O.o
