Review of A CHANGE OF HEART  
Review by CJ
Rated: E | (5.0)
I liked reading this poem. It flowed well and was easy to understand. It touched on a subject that I’ve spoken with people about in the past. When you are approaching something where your heart will be involved, specifically a relationship, but it holds true for everything, is there really any value to “holding back”? From my experiences, when you lose something you cared about or loved it hurts. Regardless of holding back or not. It hurts. I’ve found that throwing yourself all in, and not worrying about “what could happen” is so much more satisfying. Experiencing everything completely without worrying about possible pain and holding back. That’s how wonderful memories are made.

I enjoyed reading this poem. The subject is one that I am familiar with as I struggle often with dwelling on memories and wishing I could go back. I’ve made a concerted effort to try to stay in the present and only look back to learn from past experiences, but there are still those times when I find myself back there reminiscing. Your writing was nice and smooth and I had no trouble reading it at all.

Thank you for sharing this.

This is a lovely song. I enjoyed reading it. It painted a picture in my mind and stored emotion in me as well. I did notice a couple possible typos. In the second verse

I see you face, as soft as lace
Maybe should be I see your face, as soft as lace.

The fifth verse

close my eyes and hear your sights
Maybe should be close my eyes and hear your sighs.

Thank you for sharing your work.

This is definitly an emotionally charged piece. I can feel the hurt in your writing. The image this poem creates for me is a darker one. One of sadness and almost one of regret. Nothing lasts forever and even bad situations have a way of working themselves out. Not always for the best but it’s important to remember that today’s tragedies are tomorrow’s memories. Nothing more.

Thank you for sharing your work.

I liked the rhythm of this poem. The rhyme scheme was enjoyable. I enjoyed reading it and it did a good job at creating a mental image I could work with. Every season does have its proper place and I too can find something enjoyable in each one. Warm lazy summer days, cool crisp autumn nights. Fresh fallen snow in the winter or the smell of spring. Each it’s own wonder.

Thank you for sharing your work.

Hi. I’m CJ and I’m reviewing your work in association with the Newbies + Poetry Group.

WHY I CHOSE THIS PIECE:I chose this piece from the read a newbie section. The title caught my attention.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IT:I liked the rhyme scheme and the story the poem told. It introduced us to the character, and had us knowing who he was and what he was like almost right away. I had a picture of him in my head through the whole poem. The writing was done well too because I more saw the story unfolding than read it. Yes I have definitely been there before.

HOW THIS PIECE MADE ME FEEL:This poem Made me feel sorry for the author. *Smile* . For me it was a friend but it's tough to be put in the situation where nothing but a "It would be my pleasure" is the right thing to say.

OVERALL IMPRESSION:Overall I liked your poem. It had a nice flow and rhythm. If I were to change anything, the line "It's all been rather a source of stress" feels short compared to the rest of the poem. That's just my opinion though. It doesn't take away from the read at all. Great job.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IT:I liked the way you conveyed the message in your poem. I liked the way you told the story and guided me from start to finish though it.

HOW THIS PIECE MADE ME FEEL:Your poem touched me emotionally because I feel the same why a lot of times. Best down by society. I could sit here and tell you to fight back but that doesn’t Work. Not if you aren’t willing to confirm. Society will beat you every time. What you need to do is figure out a way to live for you. To shut all the crap out and love whonyou are and what you do. Then, nothing can touch you. Nothing can bring you down.

Hi. I’m CJ and I’m reviewing your work in association with the Newbies + Poetry Group.

WHY I CHOSE THIS PIECE:I chose this piece to review because it is the last one I read in your portfolio. I will try to get to them all.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IT:I really liked this poem. It is how depression makes me feel a lot of the time too. I feel pain that I want to go away but I don't want to put it on anyone else so I suffer alone. It is a horrible thing, depression. It's a faceless, unrelenting monster that stays with you always, if one form or another.

HOW THIS PIECE MADE ME FEEL:Surprisingly this piece lifted my spirits. I guess it's because you hit the nail on the head so to speak and your writing spoke to me.

OVERALL IMPRESSION:I liked your poem. It stirred feelings in me, it made me think, and it was a smooth read. All put together this poem left me with no feeling of in-completion. It painted a good mental picture for me and touched me. Good job.

Hi. I’m CJ and I’m reviewing your work in association with the Newbies + Poetry Group.

WHY I CHOSE THIS PIECE:I chose this piece because I was encouraged to check your port on the newsfeed and this one caught my eye.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IT:what didn’t I like. Excellent rhyming, excellent meter. Just excellent. This poem read itself to me. I all I had to do was look at the first line and it took hold of my eyes and guided them through the piece. It also painted a vivid image in my mind that was very similar to the prompt image.

HOW THIS PIECE MADE ME FEEL:This poem played on a few different emotions for me. I felt sorry for the poor woman riding with the ferryman. I felt curiosity, what did she do to get there. And oddly enough, I felt calmness. The flow of the writing almost soothed me in the face of such eternally sad prospects.

OVERALL IMPRESSION:I loved your poem. Hands down, flat out. It’s a wonderful piece of writing worthy of any acclaim it’s sure to receive. Thank you for writing it.

The pros outweigh the cons, but, death will come sooner or later, so I've convinced myself to see what the world can bring. It has brought me peace. I hope that if this poem is a reflection of your inner struggle, you can peak your curiosity too.

You are the one who has the beautiful daughter and you are the one who gets to experience all the wonders of watching her grow up. That is your reward for going through what you did.

Hi. I’m CJ and I’m reviewing your work in association with the Newbies + Poetry Group.

WHY I CHOSE THIS PIECE:I found your poem in the read a Newbie section and both the title and discription caught my attention.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IT:as a poem I thought it had a nice flow and rhymes. It moved well from start to finish. The subject touched my heart though.

HOW THIS PIECE MADE ME FEEL:This poem made me both angry and sad. I see people from time to time who do this to their “pets”. The are forever locked up. I knew some people who had 2 huskies as “pets”. They spent their whole life locked in kennels in the back yard. I asked one “why don’t you let them out to run around?” They said, we can’t, they can be vicious. Really? I wonder why. *FacePalm* Notice I said ‘knew’.

OVERALL IMPRESSION:Overall I liked your poem. It read well and left me emotionally affected which is what us poets really want to do, isn’t it. Great job.
