32 (who?)
Your skin is of paper mache and
stardust, so fragile and coruscating
as I reach out desperately to grasp that
supernova you call a heart;
please, don't etiolate in their sunrise
and leave me marooned in life's black abyss...
I can't survive without your—
Feel free to interpret this in anyway possible, because all I did was suddenly form this in my head and write it down. It's way different than my normal "style," and I have no idea where it came from. It just popped in my brain, said hello, and I decided to catch it before it dissolved.

Can this even be considered a poem?

This is so beautiful, and so ripe for interpretation.

A great thing about many poems is that they can be interpreted how a reader wants to interpret them. You've gotten that down with this.

And even if you don't know what it means, maybe you subconsciously do? Sorry, that's corny, isn't it?

beautiful. And yes. Any groups of word is a poem if you want it to be. That is the point. And that poetry competition you told us about in your most recent journal? This poem. This poem is lovely. The end is open for interpretation. For whatever you want it to be. So it is perfect for any audience. This poem is the poem that people LEARN to discuss literature by analyzing it. It is unique. It is gorgeous. It glows like its name. It should be shared with so many others.

Thanks. The ending cuts off like that because the title is actually the last word.

I'm thinking of entering this into the submission thing.

The title is the last word? I've never heard of that before. Nice and original! I would refrain from telling that if you submit it to something. What really makes this poem special is that the reader can decide what they can't live without. Just a suggestion.

And yes. Enter it. Out of all your poems (I've read them all). This one is special.

Pretty. Imagery, imagery, imagery. You've mastered it.

Really? I think this is weird. ._. I STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT IT MEANS...

But thanks!

Beautiful work, and very in depth.

I must be off to interpret.

Whoa. Just - Whoa.
This has so many different layers of meanings that I can't count them. Well done on this little poem!!
