I often forget this, but I aced my poetry-writing class in college. I actually took the class with the hope it would teach me how to help my brother with his own poetry, as well as how to understand poetry better. The teacher said I have a very good ear for rhyme and meter. I had to look up what he was talking about.

He also admitted that, if I hadn't been so open and happy in class, my poetry would've worried him.

I'll go for a few years completely forgetting I've even written poetry, then suddenly remember, "Hey, wait!" Like for a friend's wedding, when I forgot to write a card. I came up with a poem in 15 minutes. I don't have a copy now, though I remember the first two lines and the gist.

So let's pull out the old poetry and maybe add some new, and maybe we'll all pull something out of it.

For some reason, I thought the corpses with better color and wet paint making her sick images were the most interesting part of the poem.  Lol hope that doesn't make me sound morbid.  ^_^  I think it's just because I'm very visual and my mind tends to cling onto vivid images when I read poems.  :D

Wow, very dark indeed. But for some reason, I love this last line!  It feels like some sort of sweet revenge.  (Maybe my sanity should be questioned too.)

Omg! Did someone think you were a wilting flower? Snicker-snicker...

Wow. Talk about walking through sh*t and reclaiming, being stronger and not falling into the trap of others expectations. Empowering.
