[Plugin: Advanced Custom Fields] checking the_field(); is causing it to print (1 post)

    I have if statements in my single.php that check to see if a field exists and to put the code in the if statement if it does. The problem is it's printing the value of the_field('field') that I'm calling as well as puts the code in the if statement. Below is the code and I get the_field('field'); value in the website in "Quotes".

    <?php if (the_field('poem_title_1') !== false ) : ?>
    			<div class="graphic-bg" style="background-image: url(<?php echo the_field('poem_image_1'); ?>); background-size: cover;"></div>
    			<div class="poem-wrap">
    				<h1 class="titles poem-title"><?php the_field('poem_title_1'); ?></h1>
    				<div class="poem">
    					<?php the_field('poem_1'); ?>
    		<?php endif; ?>

    It's not goint to ruin the website, I can just keep the content on top of it but it adds in like 1px or margin and I don't want to sweep that under the digital rug so to speak. I'm hoping someone knows why it's printing and can tell me how to MURDER it.
