Writer's Commentary- Everybody's Fool

On Post: Everybody’s Fool
Date: January 6
I write terrible poetry. I really, really do. So for this, I decided to run towards that reality; to embrace it. The result, I think, it is pretty dead on bad adolescent poetry.
It is not, admittedly, a particularly creative interpretation of the inspiration material. It is, essentially, just a slightly less harsh take on it. In the song, Amy of Evanescence is clearly just straight angry at the man she is singing about/ mooning over. In the poem, our POV person’s angry front breaks down far more easily into the “Only I can love you right. Please love me.”
But yeah, if you are a bad poet, embrace it, and make it work for you.
