You Say Tomato, I say Tomatoe!

When you write about what you want to, you can portray anything you want from any perspective. I like to make my perspectives come from others and mine mixed together. I know it sounds complicated, but it isn't. It actually makes you question how things are perceived. Anyway, the point I am trying to get at is that, when you write, you should write and say things the way you feel they should be looked at. I do that in my poems. For example, here is my poem "The Devil's Blue Kiss".

It’s never nice, especially on a good 
day, Where it loves and would,
Tell of your secrets as if you were,
Playing a game of taboo. 

 It loves tricks, no treats

With a smile of tender deceit, 
And fists that pound your heart
Into crystallized rocks made of fire. 

 It blows like the water of the dam

With pressure as to beat hydraulic ram
And it’s manipulation give you the feel
Of something tickling your mind

 And then shouted out in prayer

It says, I’m here to cause pain and affair
In meas to destroy and then wheeze
With a thruster of Destruction

 And to ones extent can any intrude

To stop my wrath, my dress of dark blued
Lace, With painted sadness and torture
Just like the kiss of Klimt

 But to one desire may one cause

A pain so great that made laws of
Fury, that ended that blue dress and
Made one of flower and hope painted white

See the way that I used the color blue would probably be different in someone else's perception. Some would think of blue as in terms of the sky or of water and that its mood is tenderness. But to me, I see blue as sadness and deceitfulness. The way people portray things are so much different, but the meaning being given it the same. The most important thing I would say is in writing is purpose and figurative language. It makes everything more easier and emphasized so that you may get that feeling of what the poet it talking about.

All I am trying to say is that writing can come from many perspectives and whoever you choose to make it come from is up to you. Just make sure that you do enough to get your point across, but also make sure that your reader understands. And it might not be the interpretation you were looking for, but at least they found a way to gain knowledge or clarity from it.
