I'm confused.  When I choose to create a "deviation", I'm presented with two areas (I'll call them top and bottom) in which I can enter text, and one in which I can enter a title.  If I enter the poem in both areas and submit it, I can see that the resultant deviation appears in two forms:

The text that I entered in the top area appears in a large font in black on white.

The text that I entered in the bottom area appears in a smaller font in black on green.

Which of these two areas should I be using to enter a text deviation?  Which one is intended for poetry?  What are the different purposes of the two areas?  For example, is the top one intended to hold visual art when the bottom is holding a description and commentary?
TOP TEXT
I dreamt of Bob, a great grey rock
born of earth and fire.
To him I gave my every thought
and all of my desire.

He promised me a rocky castle
high atop a granite dome
where none would come to interrupt
the bliss within our mountain home

He built it strong, he built it grand
but as he laid the final stone
a jealous god unleashed his wrath
and suddenly I was alone

Where Bob had stood, now only smoke
and fire remained —
My love lay shattered —
Scattered shards —
Our love, once solid
torn apart

Then vengeance cried
and from my hooves
a devastating spell was cast;
the god, and all for miles around
were decimated by my blast.

I woke. The sweat had soaked the sheets.
I trembled from my energy.
I sat up straight; tears rolled down.
I mouthed a sad obscenity.

Shaken still, I swept the room,
desperate for normalcy.
My eyes fell on the modest stone
sleeping there so close to me.

Boulder lived! My tears anew
spilled upon him helplessly.
In joy, in guilt, in sheer relief
I softly touched his constancy.

“Boulder, mine.” The thought was calming,
soothing my anxiety.
I laid back down,
Smiled,
And slept.
And Boulder kept me company.
