    It was like a scope to a gun. Point blank!

    Why is this so faint that it is barely legible, LewisJuan?

    Why don't you ask your friend what it means?

    Thanks, Rover, for your reply.
    I thought I was clear and legible to you. Maybe if I post my poem here, it will become clearer.

    If There's a Way

    If it's likely
    to drown worry
    in whisky
    I'd have drowned it
    a thousand of years ago
    If there's a way
    to assassinate sorrow
    I won't have to
    wait until tomorrow
    to murder it

    Re: very poignantly written poem

    Your actual poem is still quite faint, although your response to Rover's question is the normal black text.

    Regardless, I'm afraid you'll still have to ask your friend what he means. His response doesn't make much sense.

    You don't use a scope if shooting point blank - that's the definition of point blank, the target is immediately in front of you.

    I'm guessing he's trying to say your poem clarifies the issue, but that's just a completely wild guess - your friend's response doesn't make much sense, I'm afraid.
