According to someone on the review committee, it's my writing. Several months ago, I submitted a book for a Seal of Quality. I got the most insulting rejection I've ever seen. The reviewer said he had to stop several times to scratch his eyes out. According to him, my writing was amateurish trash and I was delusional if I thought I could write. When I posted the chapters, every one of them achieved All-Time Best status. Someone hates me, (I think I know who). I have never received even an honorable mention on a site contest. In spite of winning several contests, I have never been mentioned on the home page. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.

    I know what you mean. I rarely win comps or place either, but I take consolation in the fact that the pieces that didn't win, I earned money from later...

    The site isn't really a barometer for anything outside the site. the current number one writer has posted more than I did in the entirety of last year. Short and meh wins the day at the moment. It's one of the reasons I've taken a back seat this year in regard to posting.

    The book's going well though. G

Good luck in the contest G. This was definitely direct and to the point. You described the affects of what you have read and how it makes you respond. I totally agree with your last line, it in itself says so much.

Love this. For me depression is a part of life, everyday. It amazes me if someone has no depression with the crap surrounding us. Good luck in the contest with this brilliant entry. Blessings, Barbara

This is a very dramatic, descriptive well-written poem. I've run across a few of those don't go through all that torture, though, not to that extreme lol. Nicely done.

A wonderful entry to the contest. I like it. I can relate to it in many ways. It has a wonderful flow and meaning. Sometimes the stronger the person the more emotional the person. Good luck in the contest. Well done.

Then I think to myself,
What the heck was that? <-- suggested word change

I know what you mean. I'm sure we all do. This is one reason I seldom read poetry. Most of it makes no sense to me. The rest is just depressing, always about lost love and death. I have my own problems. I don't need to share yours. Give me something to laugh at! :)

Ouch! I hope it's not something of mine that prompted this rant. Anyway, it's hilarious. I love your sense of humor here and elsewhere.
Good luck in the contest.

A very well-written free verse poem about what we read these days can make a person explode from frustration and disbelief. We see things going from bad to worse.
