On a broader note the truth is that where I start having an issue with personal poetry is when it is shared out into the world. I won't by a book of poetry filled with peoples personal thoughts and emotions. Nor can I critique peoples personal emotions... How can I without hurting them? Especially if they are writing out their issues and hurts? How can I knowingly reject THEM? Because there isn't that line between their work and them, their feelings.
In the end putting out personal writing just doesn't benefit anyone in the long run.
