If it were the title of a poem in a book of poems, or a poetry magazine, I would certainly agree with you. But those words, without any marker of their status as poem title, are disturbing and disorienting for me as the subject line of a thread on a social board of this type of website.

My response to poetry is very different from my response to personal suffering or a personal confidence, even if it is expressed publicly.

While I could relate to the subject line in this context as a poem if it said "Poem: ["words of first line"], given the context, I can hardly be expected to take them forwhat they turn out to be. Obviously context goes a long way in these things.

Hence I"m not really sure how it's appropriate under the circumstances-- if you prefer to discuss it in those terms.

It's not a huge problem by any means, but I do feel that I don't like having my expectations undermined in that way. Just personal taste no doubt.
