I feel like people are SO unclear in what they're saying... Why can't people just say what they mean?

I grasp at straws,
And tackle shadows,
Trying to see the meaning,
Just beyond the grey sheer curtains,
That keep me from seeing you clearly.

    Ooh this is very interesting. I love the way you have described a simple (yet frustrating) feeling and made it beautiful.
    RE: no that's not pushy at all, it's helpful to hear! I guess sheep do have hooves, don't they? Maybe the only reason I would hesitate to change it from paw to hoof is because it's supposed to be a stuffed lamb...and I think 'paw' might be a better way to describe the soft leg of a stuffed toy than 'hoof'. Hooves strike me as hard and cloppety. Is that just me? Either way, thanks for the tip!

    RE: Aww thank you! Also, I really like this as well, using "sheer" kind of hints at the desperate nature of this because sheer is nearly visible, so this character can "nearly" see "you" which is just so emotional!
