for Smeared In Ink

"I am a mess of contradictions" - if you think about it, aren't we all? Its okay to feel down, its alright to lament in our sorrows - be it through poetry, self confession, or otherwise. A great poem that feels all too relatable. Good job.

If I'm allowed to be technical for a moment, I notice that the ink motif is dropped in the middle portion of the poem, before it is reintroduced at the end. Some might find this jarring, but I think its only appropriate to drop literary techniques like imagery for a self confessional moment. It seems fitting that way.

Wow! great topic and great writing as well, I usually read the poems several times just to get their flow 'right' but the words in this one naturally completed each other! keep it up!
