This is extremely experimental with the format and such, so I'd love pointers. The title isn't set in stone, so I'd also appreciate suggestions. This piece is really raw, but I definitely want to know what you guys think.

i am soil

my body is a messy, wondrous shell around    forgotten ideologies

gritty and insubstantial
i have not found my home yet

do i belong amidst the rush of a river or
                                                                5 pm traffic

burying my hands in fallen metaphors
smiling at figurative language    "i love you"    wouldn't that be nice

i am full of memories and compliments
begging the posters on my wall to become reality

who is this flat-chest girl
                                        soul-sing girl
                                                            night-write girl
                                                                                day-dream girl
                                                                                                        heart-love girl
                                                                                                                                    girl-girl girl

    I like how this is very open about your personality, I think, and it seems to have an almost concrete-poem feel to it. I love the line about the stardust.

    What caught my attention first was the formatting, it's really striking and interesting, it's nearly like making art with the words (as well as the art behind the meaning of the words if you know what I mean) My favourite line has to be "do i belong amidst the rush of a river or/5pm traffic". There was auditory engagement with the river and then in an instant traffic noise was audible. Loved this!

    I am in love with this piece! The formatting was great, but it got a little cut off at the end (it always looks different when you write it; this happened to me too). I have to say, this is probably one of my favorite pieces of yours! The repetition and flow is spot on and I love "forgotten ideologies" and "begging the posters on my wall to become reality". I am stunned! How do you do it? <3<3<3

    Oh I love this! As for formatting, I would have preferred to not have broken up the first 'girl' (or it could just be my laptop size lol) but overall this is incredible. Nice job :)

    Replying: Absolutely nothing would be different. You'd still be amazing and wonderful and lovely. But we simply can't keep going back and forth like this, online school calls, of course, so I'm sending this with a note of finality. Stay sharp.

    I love the formatting! It draws me in more and flows very nicely. I can see the rawness in the words. It's really good!
    note: thanks a bunch for your comments of my pieces. I am having a bit of trouble figuring out the replying business as i lose track of who i have replied to or not. so consider this a general round all thank you <3
