Hi Ingrediants (I love your name, it must be the baker in me!)
I thought this was a very interesting (for lack of a better word) poem. I especially liked the beginning,
“These written words of pages plied
My linguistic tools on which I rely
Are all my drug to keep me sane”
I can understand this. Writing is a form of release for me, and I think this described that emotion, that passion perfectly.
My only quirk with the poem was I felt you had some filler sentences that were unnecessary, and they detracted from some very beautiful lines/thoughts. It might just be me, but when reading this allowed I noticed broken thoughts because of lines being shoved in to fill space, or take up space. Of course I'm just some random person online pretending to know what they're saying, please keep that in mind.
Oh, I did have a question. I noticed you didn't use any punctuation except for at the very end when you said, “ I need this prize, which I attained” ,(it is the 3rd line from the last). Was this for a particular reason, other then it works, or was it a mistake?
Thanks for sharing, I had a good time reading this!
