Hello, Euph here to review this lovely, and unique poem! XDFirstly, I wanted to bow at your ability to take any subject and somehow turn it into something so extraordinary. I was truly surprised when I opened the page and read an amazing poem with such a weird title. Great job for that! Now, into the actual work itself:I was slightly confused on who the woman is to the narrator. I re-read it a couple times and at the end just made up my own little story to make this poem make sense: which is what I absolutely love about poetry. There are so many different ways to interpret different works. In the end, my interpretation worked out just fine and I loved the poem even more! The ending is what really got me, I love how you transitioned the last stanza into the last line,
And I think if I were a horse, I'd be an unicorn.
The woman appears in my magical dreams,
I actually love this poem. It's very dreamlike and gives off a very mystical tone with its imagery and word choice which is definitely right up my alley. It was sort of confusing on the first read-through but I think having to read poems several times to somewhat understand them is par for the course so no issues there.I can't help wonder about the relationship between the woman and the narrator. As in, why does this woman keep appearing in their dreams? What does she represent? And why does the unicorn come into play? Lots of questions and not many answers but I guess that's the point, haha.One phrase I keep dwelling on is "stealing my stars and thunders". I'm guessing the meaning isn't supposed to be clear but I can't even figure out what that means to me personally. I keep getting the sense that there's this older woman basically trying to steal away the narrator's youth.Another confusing part are the lines "begging me to save her" and "the woman in my dreams doesn't beg". So is she begging or not begging? I guess she isn't begging and the narrator's just though she was begging at first, but she does steal apparently.One point of correction:It should be "a unicorn" not "an unicorn", the type of indefinite article you use is dependent on whether the next word starts with a vowel sound not simply a vowel.Something else I liked: I think the poem has good rhythm and you made good decisions on how to break down your lines and verses.In conclusion, I think you're a really good poet. I'd honestly probably buy a book of your work. It puts me in a really whimsical and mysterious mood which I like. Keep up the great work!
I’m confused.I like everything I understood, but still, I’m confused.
