You still ghost ship
Through
My Subconscious.

I've been waiting
For you
To drop anchor.
Some stuff.

EDIT: Whoa, whoa, whoa. This became a DD? Awesome :D Thanks to littleblueraccoon for suggesting it and IrrevocableFate for actually featuring it. It means a lot to me; it was a pleasant surprise waking up to this!

-Question aimed for :iconxxdraxx: DA users Please do NOT comment with what you 'think' it suggests, I am interested in the authors interpretation.

The first part;

You still ghost ship
Through
My Subconscious.

Is it supposed to read "You STILL ghost ship"? it is only short so I doubt it is a mistake, I am curious of your use of the word 'still', from what I can tell you seem to be a determined and passionate writer, so I am guessing you're aware that the word has been used out of context, this is not a dig or bitterness, I am genuinely interesting in your use of language, I can understand what the rest of the poem is saying, but my mind is caught on the still.

I'm sorry I disregarded your asking for me not to answer, but his use of still is not out of context.
He is using "still" in the same context as its synonyms: nevertheless, regardless, or yet.
I mean not to cause you any irritance, I just figured you may like some insight.

What are you confused about exactly?

Yes, the 'still' is suppose to be there.

As in "You still come up in my thoughts." So it gives it a sense of continuity and longing.

Hope that helps.

Thank you it does, I have studied English language and literature so you can probably guess the many interpretations I have come up with, I thought it may have been that, but I wanted to clarify in order to appreciate it further, I like thinking of my own interpretations of poems, and then hearing what the true meaning is you see.

I have been thinking about it since I read it, short, but well thought out, many people find it difficult to write few lines but include meaning. Thank you again! And well done on the DD!

That's fair :P I usually don't like explaning my work, I like having people make their own interpretations on what I write, which is why I hardly ever say anything useful in the descriptions. I think it's a lot more fulfilling that way.

And Thanks :D

Really cool. Just curious, why capitalize subconscious? Are you wanting us to view it almost as a second entity or sprinkling in  a little personification?

So, I was going to make up a reason to make it seem as if I'm some deep thinking but...to be honest, I didn't even notice.

So my answer is, "It ended up that way."

Hahahah! That's awesome! You know sometimes This reminds me of the notion that a lot of the literary analysis we pull with many classic authors was probably not at all what the author was intended. XD Sometimes I'm sure they would just say, "It ended up that way." :)

:icondylanseto:

Probably. Haha.

I know Bob Dylan (the musician) is known to troll around with interviewers when asked the meaning of his lyrics. :P

Expand? I don't frankly care if you don't like this. I know not everyone will.

I'd just like people to give detailed explanations for their opinion or else it's just pointless.

He's probably just a little bitter that something so short, and with a "I could of done this in 5 seconds" attitude, could get a DD.

I think it's alright, though I wish it was a little more.... detailed so I can decipher what you really mean ^_^

I really enjoy how metaphorical your literature is, mostly because you read one thing but the meaning is another.

I enjoy watching people try to decipher pieces.

Sometimes, I'm pretty straight up when I actually want something said or I'm venting though. Sometimes, I feel like writing pieces to purposely offend people, which is why I created by arrogant/violent/aggressive alter-ego, The Kid.

All in all, I just like to have fun with writing.

And I've been studying a lot of E.E. Cummings and Walt Whitman lately.
