Yet this one is different from all the rest, and I like it for that reason, because it can mean something different for every person who reads it. This poem really does it for me. It is profound, right, simple. In a way, yes, thanks for stopping by This short poem shows a tenderness. In my recent poems I’ve been end-stopping yes, but here are a few where I use enjambment quite frequently: https://swlynch.com/2012/08/12/i-was-an-anvil-without-rust/ https://swlynch.com/2012/05/03/humanity-is-a-machine/ https://swlynch.com/2012/05/05/ignore-everything-3/ As you can see, a lot of my early poetry is wrought with enjambment, but for some reason, I don’t exactly know why, I drifted away from that device. I’m sorry about the whole making you depressed thing, but in a way I’m not sorry because that means that you didn’t just read it, but wallowed in it, which I liked. By writing poetry I am desperately seeking happiness, whether consciously or subconsciously. My cause for writing mirrored the effect it had on a reader, I think that’s why I’m a modernist poet. That, and because I mostly read modernist poetry, besides Shakespeare and some ancient Chinese poetry which I read quite often. I mean, I read many different kinds of poetry, but I mostly consume those of the 19th, and 20th centuries. Thanks for the great comment, and I hope you visit often. i try to be. Interesting poem. I’ve noticed you really have a preference for end-stopping your lines, do you have any poems where you use enjambment? All the poems I read made me mildly depressed and I’m now desperately seeking happiness. Thanks for the post. You’re definitely a modernist poet. I’ll be back to read some more! You are just too funny Rami I miss you girl, even though I’ve never met you Thank you good sir Yet you have an Internet connection. *sigh* Me, too. 💋 : * SO VERY BEAUTIFUL AND NICE.
