I have serious issues with endings to poems. Here is an example:
Possibilities hold such hope
when no one else can see.
tucked safely in pillowcase corners,
seem alive and strangely tangible.
Should that last line read: "Few withstand the harsh floodlight of reality's withering gaze"? Or is "Few withstand." okay? When I first wrote it, I had the longer sentence. When I re-wrote it seemed like the two words were enough.
Then I can't decide.
I kind of like how vague it is with the harsh 'few withstand' but I always feel caught between saying more and paring my poems down to the bare minimum. Usually the paring down wins.
