I love when poetry workshops feel like a therapy sessions. On my poem someone wrote "I just don't understand what the speaker loved about him when he was obviously such an asshole". The number of times the word "bitter", "spite", and "sarcastic" came up. And this "People act as if they know all about us after knowing us for 2, 3, 12 months or what have you and act as if they are bored. But in reality we are bottomless wells. In each one of us is a mystery to be forever absorbed and yet we treat each other like dirt." I think that is sort of beautiful. What I love about poems is the way it allows for people to share very acute feelings.
