    You know, this made me think about people sexting but with little other substance. Giving a piece of themselves without giving their true selves. But that’s just me.

      You’re close, but that’s what interpretation is all about, you’re neither right or wrong 😉

    How did I miss this? Actually I think I need to do some Joe reading. It’s funny that I read this this morning (morning for me, lol) after an evening of questioning myself on this blog and stressing about little things. Do you think we sell our souls to the screen? Maybe…I’ve explored that a little in my more self indulgent and depressing poetry… and anyway
    …I read this and thought well, you can sell your soul , figuratively speaking…make money maybe from your blog or whatever else but deeply…deep down …you only really reveal yourself to those who deserve it.
    Am I right?
    Urgh…you won’t answer…you’re asleep!

      You’re absolutely right! I disguise myself very well (and maybe not so very well) in all my poetry. Even more so in my horror fiction!

        Is it terribly scary….? 🙀

      2. Joseph Pinto says:

        Oh, it’s terribly scary…

      3. Fiery says:

        Thrills thrills and thump thump

        Yay I’m right!
