Seamless, flawless, and beautiful. Great work! The way I read it, that windowpane loneliness is a longing--looking out to the world in admiration, in want--something very bittersweet. That longing has reached to the stars; hopes, dreams, wishes, everything bright and lively, but instead of catching them, has doused their light, crushed them. It looks down, ardently, to darker depths, places without light, without hopes or dreams or life--the ocean beds. Or alternatively, creates tears. A friend told me they're reminded of a lighthouse, reading this. I wonder, what is your interpretation? Again, this is simply gorgeous
I love it when work can be interpereted many different ways. This is true poetry, in my humble opinion, because one must delve beneath the surface to reveal the many hidden layers. It really made me think, and I thank you for that.
Then I must have misunderstood something. What is "windowpane loneliness"? Is it the same as normal loneliness? Is it even ABOUT feeling alone? And, most importantly, was I supposed to be able to figure out the answers to these questions on my own? Maybe I'm just slow, but I really don't get it ._.
Windowpane loneliness is like when someone stares out a window as their loved one walks away. And devouring starts, is saying that this character seeking to be happy again. But that doesn't always work. The poem is meant to be interpreted by the reader to come up with their own conclusions.
I thought it was nonsense at first... but then i understood. However, it really bother me to see two seconds of work get more coverage than art that took 30 hrs or more...or hell, even an actual poem...
This is an 'actual poem'. Does the short length of a haiku not make it a poem? I can't speak for your field of art, but the way the system is, popular pieces are picked from each category to be featured on the front page via a computer program. I don't have the power to decide what gets on the front page and what does not. If you'd like more views and comments, try GetWatchers: [link] .

Sorry, that probably sounded more negative than i meant it...I wasnt trying to say it didnt stand for something, id just kind of like to hear a story in a poem, otherwise there is no narrative. Youre right, a haiku is valid, but the idea of putting them in english is weird...Haiku is designed for a syllabic language(i know you already know that, just saying.) Anyway, sorry. Drinking+DA=bad lol
Wow. Have you ever heard of something called hard work? Talent is a myth. Even poets study their trade, almost no one is just born great at something, Eddie van Halen spent years at a conservatory learning piano before even touching a guitar. Art block is a myth. Great work doesnt come from sudden inspiration, it comes from REFINEMENT of an idea, distilling it to perfection. Literally animation shows the time put into it...You obviously know nothing about color work as different types of paintings take more time due to the working process according to the media used...You're going to tell me a quickly colored comic page is better than a fine oil painting? well, thats your opinion. I like how your comment is in the form of a question as to mean you subconciously know its not right...Just the kind of thing id expect someone who patterns filters over screenshots to say...three sentences saying im looking out a window at the ocean is not poetry in MY opinion. Srry if you didnt expect an intellectual rebuttle...
You...really over-analyzed my comment xD You were upset about the poem having a lot of coverage, for some reason decided to tell me about it, I didn't know what to say, cue my half-hearted attempt at consoling. And, by consoling, I, of course, mean providing a perspective you didn't seem to have considered.
I have heard of hard work, I disagree with your opinion of talent and art block and inspiration, I never claimed to know anything about painting, which I'd like to point out is irrelevant to the original subject matter of this "argument" you initiated, I DON'T know anything about painting, I assure you photomanipulation is quite a bit more complicated than layering filters, and, as I just found out, your interpretation of the poem is incorrect. Also, it's only one sentence
I don't know how you managed to blow this so out of proportion, or why you thought getting angry with me was necessary, but I'm really not in the mood for debate. I kindly request that you either drop the subject or continue it with someone else, because I won't be responding to any further messages.
uh, i didnt really intend to respond to you? but the original poster. I think youve taken text out of context. Im not "upset" and i could really care less if you respond or debate. I spend ALL DAY in photoshop, do you really think i dont know how photomanipulation works and how INCREDIBLY SIMPLE it is? Go do your homework, child, because you are in sore need of education. Now i am angry. I could do what you do with my eyes closed.
Sorry. I didn´t mean nonsensical in a pejorative way, in fact I like it a lot. I suppose a better way to put it would have been that they cry for a second reading and often make your mind do a "flip" when analyzed from another perspective. But then again, maybe your opinion's totally different.
