Review by Nomadic_Soul
Rated: E | (4.0)
I really enjoyed the work...very honest, and real. The fifth stanza does seem to stumble with the meter.
Just my opinion,

This was a great read, and yes you have talent. Paragraphs and sentences need to be tightened up. Try and love grammar...I know it's hard.

Review of Forbidden Power  
Review by Nomadic_Soul
Rated: ASR | (4.5)
This is good work, I actually think maybe it should be done in free or blank verse. It describes what alot of Christians are going through. And the bible says in the last days there will be a great falling away. Don't be apart of it...please.
Keep writing, I can tell you have the talent. But it takes friction to polish a gem.

Loved it, you capture the moment, and the one that followed. If your looking for a great book, buy:
Techniques of the selling writer, by Dwight Swain.
You won't believe its value.

Unbelievable!!! What a gifted poet.

The finger that touches it
brings salty droplets
to the mouth,
a lost connection
to the taste of a friendly sea.

My favorite!

Review of Unknown Soldier  
Review by Nomadic_Soul
Rated: E | (4.5)
If you keep writing like this, they'll love you for it!!



A Ration of Courage

I pray no one asks for my name,
it tumbled from the saddle
of my mind, at Gettysburg,
covered in the mud of insanity
I left broken, and twisted.

I swing into a gallop
past the steam of gray soldiers.
Staring at the young and old,
as they draw another ration
of courage from my soul.

Who will see tomorrow's beauty,
with limbs intact I wondered?
And who will show the sun how red their blood is,
as they lie against the earth's blanket of grass.

They cheer for me... hats waving,
like wheat unknowing of the harvest.
"Give 'em hell General!!"
"We can turn the tide!"
I smile, "Trust me boys, I will...
If hell be on our side."

This is amazing work--and no I'm not trading 5.0's with you. I still can't figure out how you connected such imagery, flow, meter, and a deep message of life's wonders. Awesome work!

Review of CRAZY HORSE  
Review by Nomadic_Soul
Rated: E | (5.0)
"Hoka Hey" "Hanta Yo" {"Clear the way," if I remember right? or was it "a good day to die?"]
Yes, I fell in love with all the great chiefs also.
Lakota and Cheyenne. What beautiful people hey were.
Your poem is a great tribute to the last of the great knights who road bareback. Too bad he was killed by his own. I always found that shocking.

Review of You Awaken Me  
Review by Nomadic_Soul
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
This is really exceptional, you layered the metaphors and let them tell the story.
Might want to fix this typo:
"That that licks my flesh"
You have the talent, now you must keep writing.
Getting your voice...Its a journey believe me.
Sometimes I think everthing I write is Junk!!
Other times it strikes me as beautiful.
