of Ghosts and Glass by DearPoetry of Ghosts and Glass by DearPoetry
Her flames tired my back,
sweeping into me.
Murmuring questions.

It turned out I was alive:

a new woman dancing on glass.

Book: Kissing the Witch by Emma Donoghue

You know, I've seen these before but for some reason yours stand out. It must be the way you lead the reader through the page...? Those outlines... As easy as it looks to find words and make something new, I doubt everyone is capable of making good poetry like this :]

Some pages are harder then others, honestly.
Some can fly off the page, and others I have to search for. :)

Really? That's interesting haha.... Do you find that certain types of literature or certain genres are easier/ preferable to work with than others?

Not really--I think it all just depends one what words are on what page, you know? :)

A beautiful ending. I just can't seem to manage 'decoding' it.
Might I ask the meaning behind it? I mean, I know not all poems have an exact meaning and what-not, that it has to be thought out individually but I guess what I'm asking, is what it means to you? C:
