    Hello there Drake, Just finished reading this marvelous piece of yours, for the third time. There's just to much to absorb for one read, the standard of the poem is exceptional. My favorite segment is" I am focus" very strong lots of feeling. Can I ask how long did this take you to write, it must have been a good few days. I noticed you came 2nd in a contest with this, I would like to read the poem that top this, it just doesn't get much better than this. you should be proud.

    Hi, Alexis!!!! :) How cool of you to stop by here. The poem took about 2 1/2 hrs to write, minus little edits & such. I had it planned in my head for awhile. I still added a lot more beyond what I came up with. This was one of those stream of consciousness writings. It flowed strong that night. I'm really, really happy you came by here!

    The indirect approach, I find, is often the most captivating one, forcing the reader to make his/her own connections. There was so many killer lines in this, but one that especially drew me in was "I am sight Not blinded by clouds of nine Even during the rain My sun still shines"... it's beautiful! And though I'm a huge fan of Spongebob, I don't know if I'd slow dance with him... *awkward*...

    Yes, precisely. I want people to deduce their own message and talk about it with me. Anything to trigger the brainwaves. Thanks so much, Tim! HA, it's only awkward if they want you to spend their night at their house while they live with mom & dad. Just sayin'. :)
