I just do not understand people who have the need to tell you, in a rude way,all the things they think are wrong with your poetry. now I am the first to admit that I do not take criticism well, but I am not as bad as I used to be. No really I’m not, if I get a negative comment, I read it and forget it. I do not except everyone to like what I write. But today is not a good day, not a good month and this guy pissed me off.
Comment he sent me on Kaleidoscope; content self indulgent, poem lacks in grammar, rhyme and punctuation. This I just could not read and forget, for a number of reasons. First the poem is free verse, the jerk should have known that. Self indulgent, well isn’t most poetry self indulgent? we write about our life, how we feel, happy, sad, love, hate, that’s what we do. Grammar and punctuation, ok that is a whole different rant and for another day. just one thing, if I want to say me instead of I, I will. I also told him, I didn’t ask for his opinion and do not need his approval. what I really wanted to say, I can’t say here. I checked out his profile, he did not have one poem posted.
Thank you, I just had to get that out of my system or I was going to rip him a new one!
