well then this is where I elaborate. I think of poetry on a much bigger scale. I mean, as the driving force of life and existence and yes, even change. A force that simply is. Much like the majority view on God. But when it comes down to it the collective and the individual reach the same end and God at the end of the day is God. In other words, seperating poetry into different aspects and trying to fit a force that moves to the individual into a general category with a general single meaning doesn't work because, again, it is a single force that moves to the individual. when you ask what dark poetry is you ask what poetry is. when you ask what light(ive never heard anyone reffer to poetry as light, but im assuming that would be the word to use that would be poetry that isnt "dark"?)poetry is, you ask the same question over expecting a different answer, but, again, poetry is a single force movign to the individual and is only collective through the individual. ive never been good at explaining things in plain words like this, so i'm really just hopin youre catchin what im throwin.
oh, and I honestly dont see any escape in it, poin tthat out. all knowledge is useful even if it's just for the chance to gain experience, or familiarize ourselves with the possibilities.
The only difference between the creative and the conformists is that the creative will not be conquered and the conformists already are.
