Hi! I'm here to leave a quick review!!
Anyway let's get right to it,
Hello...I don't normally review poetry but Checklist Challenge, so here I am. Sorry If I can't really go into anything too technical since I'm not that familiar with poetry but I'll try to give my impressions here.
So right away, there's definitely something that makes this stand out so much from normal poetry with the way this is all just texts here. I think it certainly instantly gets your attention, that title there certainly helps although to me it sounds a tiny bit too long. I like the vibe the title provides but its just seems like its a bit too much of a mouthful.
Moving onto the piece itself. I love how this seems to work on about three different levels depending on how many times you read it. The first time there's just that relatability of when you've been up till four am and you're spamming texts that make absolutely no sense except to you at that hour. So there is that mild sense of almost humor sneaking in there, but then the moment you read through it with a bit more attention and try to visualize where this person is coming from, there's immediately a deep dive into a much darker place.
You get the sense of a person who is looking at life and themselves and not really liking what they see. You get almost something of a want for approval, followed by something that seems like disappointment at not getting a reply but also just this person reflecting on how they think their life has led to a point they don't really like it.
And then we come to that last bit, which is perhaps almost the punchline to the more humorous moment of this, and you wonder if this person was reduced into that drunk state by whatever hurt they were speaking of earlier, and you suddenly get another hit of just how down this person must be.
All in all, this really seems to hide a powerful message there between what at first glance seems to be pretty innocent and random. I think its a beautiful piece.
Aaaaand that's it for this one.
As always remember to take what you think was helpful and forget the rest.
