This is gorgeous. I'm trying to find the right words to describe why I love it, but I can't. It actually reminds me a little of the books of rhyming prayers I was given as a child, both in its organic structure/rhyme, and the inherent nostalgia I feel it has. But it's also far more powerful in its language. I'm no brilliant poet or anything, but I think you definitely deserve the DD you received for this.
It's kind of funny, I wrote this without any specific meaning in mind, it was just something tumbling around in my head. Then someone told me what they thought it meant, and I read it again, and I thought, "Wow, they're right, it does mean that!" That's why I think readers give meaning to the words just as much as writers do.
I think you are correct many a times i have completely made my own interpretations of words ,nevertheless finding joy in it although most people don't get mine and of course sometimes with dire consequences ...powerful thing words.
