My 'To Do' List. by Invoking My 'To Do' List. by Invoking
So this is something new. I think I'll start writing my poems like this. This one was just an abstract practice round. If I decide to continue doing this for my poems, the backgrounds and font will pertain more to the poem itself.

Please, let my know your thoughts on this piece. Anything that you feel could be improved (besides my misspelling of 'somebodies' ene), I would love to know. Thank you <3

This is my 'To Do' list. What's yours?

I would like to thank Google Images for the background. Thank you Google. You make all of our lives easier <3

This is so empowering, so inspiring... so beautifully intense and compassionate and CERTAIN in its empowerment! I love it.

Honestly, the only critique I can give on this is that the decorations are much brighter and starker than the words, which draws more attention to them than the poem. Ultimately the length of the verses draws enoug hattention that maybe it balances out, but I personally would have kept their brightnesses a little closer together, or brightened up the font just a touch...

It really does look gorgeous, though! Rock on~

I love the free-verse and the way the whole thing is constructed. I think in the line 'I will burn their passion raw' that putting the word burn or passion into red would be a little more effective, though I think I understand why you put it where you did. The background is also astonishingly beautiful while being simple at the same time. If you could put the brightness in the text and the more dim colors on the swirls it would bring more attention to the list. Even how it is though, its' beautiful.

Why thank you very much~ <3 That really means a lot to me. I deeply thank you.

If I could bother you for just a second more of your time, do you mean 'more' as in the poem itself or the typographic display..? It is a matter of importance... ^^'

I liked the poem itself very much, but to be honest, the typographic display is what caught my attention and added interest for me. As I said, I don't really come on dA for literature (though I am an avid reader and writer myself) so the display for the poem is what got my attention. It is good because it might expand your reader base to people like me. The literature base on here is just so monotonous and dull, you never know what kind of writing you might end up with when you click on a writing post. This poem has wonderful cadence, rhyme, rhythym, and meaning. :]

Visually, eye catching, and somehow balanced, its a dance, sounds like music inside my head. I agree with you, it's a nice, very nice idea to present your ink this way.
Emotionally, brings a warm feeling. I'd say hope, but it's more than that. I'm explaining awfully myself.
As poetry, I think you made a delicate and strong thing at the same time.

Congrats!
