Review of The Messiah  
Review by Rustys GOOF
Rated: E | (5.0)
Inspiring summery of our savior.
Good coupling of sentences . Easy to read and predictable flow of rhymes. Syllable count is excellent. (NOTE):This poem could have been longer and still kept the readers attention due to the ease of the read.
I can offer no changes or suggestions to your work, it's good as is.

( Interjection) Can one really be forsaken by the same Deity who's wishes are being fulfilled at the very moment of the suggested abandonment?

"The wrath of God was on Him now,
forsaken by an ancient vow."

forsake - To abandon, to give up, to leave (permanently), to renounce
en.wiktionary.org/wiki/forsake
JUST FOOD FOR THOUGHT.


Personal: Thank you for sharing this meaningful poem with all of us.
Regards, Rusty

Review of Reality  
Review by Rustys GOOF
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Bravo! I found your words amazing.
Some things are very difficult to write about., especially the things that hurt us the most. Even then, expressing those things in a way that is true to you and moving to the reader, as you have done here...Damn hard to do.
Without knowing how (true to life) this piece is to you, I would ask that you tolerate me as I ramble about my own life observations.
I am an old man that has found that all things in this world are temporary. (ALL THINGS).
Love, family , power, wealth, fame, good or bad health, pain, knowledge and every imaginable emotion.
We are lead to believe and rationalize that with death, we loose it all and that all we did while we were here, gone. Therefore most folks try to maximize the lives they have and the time they are here. They focus on careers, money, happiness - as fast and as long as possible.
In the end, as we age, reality tightens it's grip on us and we start to see a different possible outcome.

What if DEATH is not best defined as the "end of all we are" but the " last opportunity you had to leave behind something for others that might make the stay here a little more tolerable"?
Opportunity to help them love, to share, to smile. Opportunity to help them be comfortable and oh yes one of the most important ones.....Opportunity to help them heal.
You see our lives are only about (us) if we are selfish.

SUMMERY: You have a gift that allows you to change a persons feelings with your written words. Use your gift to lift up others. To give them strength, to help them bask in love, to smile at all the world has and to help heal them..Thats right , you can do that for others my friend.

Good luck.
Rusty

Review of Love Poem  
Review by Rustys GOOF
Rated: ASR | (5.0)
Your poem is very original. I personally enjoyed reading it several times. Love poems are my favorite but finding one thats good is rare, original ones even more so. Yours is both. My hats off to you for an excellent job.
Before offering any suggestions , I'd remind you that your work is of course (your work) and should be offered a you see fit. having said that, I did notice a few things..Without the changes I would still give it 5 stars.

"Cannot" is one word (line16)and (line20)

Thank you for sharing your work with us.
Warm regards, Rusty

Good work, I like the way you held the point untill the end . I use that technique in writing myself. It helps me to keep the attention of the reader. Keep up the great work and congradulations on your recognition as a skilled writer.

I do have one suggestion for you.. Use it only if you think will be helpful to you. Your write is broken down in five groups of four lines each, with the rhyming words falling at the end of the second and fourth lines.With the excection of the very first group. does not rhyme with .
Heres a link to a online rhyming dictionary. This link will show you all the words that rhyme with the word "play".

Hi Vivian. I wish you a season filled with love, that kind your poem speaks of. It a wonderful example of how we sometimes stray away from the truly meaningful things that we need to focus on.

You done a great job on the newsletter too!
Oh, and I love that decorated deer on your Sig.

Warm regards,

Excellent writing. Did I mention This was excellent writing? Is that smoke I see over there?
Love verses are my absolute favorite.I could sit and read them all day.You should try a Shakspearian Sonnet
You have the flow and rhyming part down.
I believe you could do one. Write me if you'd like an example of one.
Yours is a jewel.
