Re: Dirty Faces

I like this. Puts the reader in a fabric of time where entertainment wasn't based on technology (apart from Mum watching afternoon tv) Dad driving miles for economical reasons, kids being kids and being punished for it. Good old times? I feel like knocking on a door and running away!

Piggy Back

Piggy Back

My daughter rides high,
The world on my shoulders grow,
Ill never let go.

I fidget with life,
She just giggles and says ‘more'
Until my back burns.

Financially stuffed.
She’s a pig in mud, I’m broke,
I have to let go.

Re: The Transfigured Life

Yeah this is good. Had to read it a few times and now I've come back to it. Starts off so beautifully, than a change in emotion and the reality of death or more specifically 'time' eating away the past sets a depressing tone. (Depressing - isn't negative in this context) I like the references to wea...

Re: Ten questions

I enjoyed this too.

Particularly; "Or is a poet just some person
with troubled mental health?"

I think most of us could hold our hands up to that!

Re: My Waterloo

Wow - I love the form here. Thats top notch stuff. I had to wiki 'troubadours' is that ok... the meaning the same? Is that cheating lol? As mentioned earlier, must've taken a long time to muster. I was wondering if you could swap the first two lines in the first stanza so it could mirror the ending?

This is nice. Not too complicated or cryptic. I like; "My nose is running, to who knows where?" I'm not too keen on "I'm staying horizontal." I don't know why... It's just the word 'staying' that doesn't seem to roll off the tongue well. The meaning of the word fits perfectly, its just the sounding ...

Re: When death comes

I'll be honest and say both endings fall short for me.

'Wax sculpture' definately doesn't fit. I think you need to work on 'I turn into'.

How about; 'I morph into an ice-sculpture'? As 'morph' rhymes with 'form' on the line above, it represents change and you still have your freezing theme.

Re: Rosalind

I like the rhyming scheme here;

"went redder too;
her lips went blue,
and bluer too;"

Im sure this was consciously done but very natural indeed. I was very intrigued as to what the next sentence would deliver, like little mini cliff hangers.

Cheers :D

I just bumped this to see if people thought it was ok as a final edit.

Not sure if it does much for me. I think it would be more interesting if it was about a barrier (screen) that seperates real life from the virtual world.

Re: Arghhhh

This type of poetry hits home with me because its flow highlights a moment in thought that mimics reality. i.e. it would be natural to have that pattern of thought in the length of time it takes to read it. It would make an intriguing suicide note. Hehe... but a legendary, rockstar type. Almost as i...
