Just In
for Fear of Dreaming

Yes, you did use dissipating properly... That is if this is in the context I think it is. (Warning! Loser at poetry ahead (me)!)

From what I can tell this is a post-breakup type of poem... well done. I often experience the same thing, though not in the same form. (I have never had the pleasure of a proper relationship, or the displeasure of a breakup)

Great! I love it! And you did use dissipating correctly.

Dissipating = fading into nothingness, diffusing etc etc. You got it in the correct context, never fear. This part: The bond, the contract, the agreement that spawned me was once full, but is now empty and void.

Correct ME if I'm wrong but the whole thing is about a marriage break-up from the offspring's point of view? If it is then you've handled it brilliantly! Hidden in poetic devices lies pain. I must look into this Jim Carrol guy...
