I think you did a great job with these. Why do you use title "not a footle" The Despair title is great!!

Hi, I thought a footle was supposed to be light hearted hence the "not" but the form just seemed right for this poem. Thank you for the comments Love Shane xxx

This was pleasantly dark, I see the merit for the ending. Yet the second lines of some of the "stanzas" make me feel as though you're talking about an actor or an actress after the curtain falls for the last time, leaving them in the dark. Good Job!
