"…I'm like the sea when she swells. I'm a wizard of writing, and my words are my spells. My power is poetry, my magic of choice. The weapon I willed is the wand of my voice. Either written on paper by hand and by pen or spoken out loud and then it's stronger by ten. See, I've reached for the stars and found the divine then the moon told me secrets and she said they were mine.…"
"…Yeah, I was most definitely captured by a lot of that magic. That was amazing. Oh, my God. That was so amazing. My favorite line I reached for the stories and reached the divine. Whoa. Whoa. That was dope appreciate you, Quaint.…"
"…I definitely felt the wizardry of your writing, pun intended. It's very well thought out and very well written, very descriptive, and it obviously ties into your ability to write. And it's something that actually inspires me. I see poetry more as a form of therapy for me, and not so much a poet, but there's so much power in words. We underestimate the power of words, and you were able to perfectly explain how words are powerful.…"
"…Yeah. I am totally under your spell. I loved every bit of that piece. It was just so tantalizing and rich to me. Wonderful.…"
"…And I think that art in general is a lot different from other things that people pursue because art is something that it does affect the mind in an emotional way, it does convey what we are feeling and going through in a very specific way that I think other mediums don't. So you could talk about veins, you can do other types of work, but I think art is one of those things that just perfectly conveys the emotions that a person is going through.…"
"…But the fact that you actually are taking time out of your day or your schedule to come on this thread and actually be a part of something that I'm doing and show me that kindness, that is just such an awesome gift. So thank you for that. I appreciate you for being here so much.…"
"…The world really does hold magic. But to find it or see it, you have to believe. So thank you for taking the time to believe with me. I appreciate you for that. Thank you so much.…"
"…This was definitely captivating. Thank you so much for sharing. It hit right in my heart.…"
"…And thank you so much for listening and taking the time to reply. It makes all the difference in the world to me. Thank you.…"
"…Sorceress that was awesome. Oh, I love that. The Rhyming scheme was just so good. I love that. Well, kudos to you. That was truly spellbinding. And I think, like everyone else, I was also under your spell. I was like, OOH, where is this going? And the images that were conjuring in my mind, and it felt like a storybook poem, and I felt like someone like a spectator watching this amazing spell taking place. Lovely. I absolutely love this.…"
"…Yay. I'm so glad that you enjoyed it. Thank you so much for sharing your energy with me like that. It is so beautiful and makes posting so worthwhile. And that's why I am just so grateful and thankful that I'm able to be here on Swell because of poets and artists and beautiful people like you who are able to share with me in this scene that I love so, so much. I love words, I love the magic that they do indeed create.…"
"…Magic. Complete magic. I am spellbound. I love the stealthiness. This is a real journey. You know, I could almost feel this potion becoming stronger as you spoke to it. And I liked the line. Was it something about things get stronger tenfold once you speak them? This was weighty. Definitely. I loved it.…"
"…I appreciate you so much for your replies. They just mean so, so much to me because you are such a good poet and so amazing in your own right that to have you reply to my poetry and share your thoughts about it, it's just so amazing to me and I just appreciate it so much.…"
"…It's kind of like there's an ease or I assume that you've tapped into something where it's like a well and it just flows and it's accessible to you and it's almost like breathing. As much as I enjoy the time I'm able to carve out to write, it feels sticky to me. I feel very structured. I feel like I've got to loosen up more. And so I don't necessarily feel like a very good poet.…"
"…And I appreciate you so much for sharing. Thank you for taking the time to listen and then for being kind enough to share how you feel about the piece. It's just awesome that I get to interact with you guys this way. So I just want you to know that I really appreciate you and I appreciate being here, and it's really just so humbling.…"
"…Yes. Yes. I love this so much. I can almost not find words, which is rare for me. I felt the magic in this and the power behind it just so powerful and beautiful. And boom, here I am. I love it. You did amazing with this piece. And I am so blessed to have come across it. I love it so much. Keep doing what you do. It's amazing.…"
"…But I do it because it is everything that is in my core. It is who I am, and I cannot help but do it. But when I share it, I'm always so surprised when someone else finds it as special as I do. So I just want to thank you for taking the time to listen. And I want to thank you for taking the time to reply. It means so much to me that you did that, especially because it's you.…"
