How Poetic by HaveTales-WillTell

Fall.
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††We always fall
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† together.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††We fell
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††in love
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††with each other.
And later, when
You fell
††††††††††††††††out of love
††††††††††††††††with me
(and fell
††††††††††††††††under her spell)
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††I fell
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††from the pedestal
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††you'd put me on.
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††I fell
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††from cloud n

this is such a great piece - I am a real fan of literary art with language and this is just amazing!!!!

WOW!

as I am into haiku poetry the peculiarity of language is something that I am always playing with - makes me think there might be some cool haiku ideas in this kind of work.

thanks for the great experience.

hope you're having a wonderful day,
Dick from Solar

Put that a fucking apostrophe in, and it can be mine!

Brilliant. I don't think that two words by themselves have made me laugh so much in ages. It is truly witty, and has gone a long way to restoring my faith in intelligent life on dA. (After a depressing day wincing at the language-abuse in the forums).

I feel like a complete moron, but what in the world does that mean..?
Reply
:iconcrazy-eyes:
crazy-eyes Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2007
Don't feel too much like a moron - 'sic' is a fairly obscure editing reference in literature, or writing in general. You might see it from time to time, usually in a text book or magazine where they are quoting someone else. As the definition explains (see [link] ) it's often a way of saying in print 'yes, I know that this is gramatically wrong, but that's the way it was written originally - don't blame me.'

In the case of the cup, it is gramatically incorrect to say 'thats' if you mean 'that is.' There's a missing apostrophe before the 's'. It should be that's.

So the cup is saying That is Sick, but it's also saying - 'i KNOW there should be an apostrophe in there.'

It's a very clever two-pronged play on words.

(unless of course bananaprincess had something else in mind, in which case I've just made a fairly complete idiot of myself!) I hope you don't mind me jumping in and replying - i was very bored)

BTW, a person who worries about feeling like a moron but asks for an explanation usually isn't. A moron would be happy in his/her/its ignorance.
