Review of I am not a poet  
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Hey!

Wow, this is a wonderful poem for someone who is "not a poet". I can identify with a lot of what you are saying here because I am 21 and have not experienced the wide variety of things this world will offer. Love, often times, escapes me for this reason. So i think the subject of this poem is awesome and so current.

Your word choices are simply great. Words like "glittering" and "slicing" are proof of this. I liked the overall flow of this piece, too.

M y favorite part of this poem is the ending. "I am numb to them" is such a great cap to a great poem. It allows the reader to really understand that the narrator is completely oblivious to the "poetic" things around him such as emotional beauty and so on. I also really enjoyed the line "I do not have the right to speak of these things", as if the narrator is underestimating himself somehow. very cool.

Great Job on this!

Review of Autumn

Hey!

Very nice poem! i thoroughly enjoyed reading this piece. Your lines melt into one another beautifully and your rhythm is simply great. Again, your word choices are amazing. I like the usage of these words in particular: trickle, guise, yellow carpet, palette, plight. Very nice. You also utilize personification very well in several places, notably "she declares the advent of winter" and, my favorite line, "as nature spreads her yellow carpet". Very well done with the imagery, too. I love yuor style, diction, and use of personaification throughout this poem. Great Job!

Review of Apple-pie  
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (4.0)
Hey!

Interesting piece of alliteration here. Overall i liked it. It just seems a little choppy in that it is missing words in it to explain what Andre is doing in the third and fourth lines. it would make more sense if you said "Although (a word that makes it known it is 'he') ate an apple-pie amply, avidly asked (maybe put "about") additional amounts". This is solely my oppinion, though, and remember this poem still amused me and that is a huge plus! good work!

Review of Love's Sunset  
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Hey!

Very nice poem here. The style s so interesting, and to be honest i have never read one of these before. "love's sunset" is such a cool metaphor that you utilized because it gives an interresting piece of imagery to a waning love. Though, at the same time, you also note that the love and everything associated with it was a "lie" as noted in the second stanza. Perhaps that is simply the speaker's attempts to console herself, though, in making herself believe that. Either way it works out very well. your word choices are great in this poem like when you use the word "coquette" to describe a woman who just wants a man's attention for the sake of making herself feel better. Very nice there. My favorite line is a simple line, but it sounds great and fits in well to the poem: "With sorrow I am beset."

Overall you created wonderful visuals within your poem and you made your emotions very clear. Again, your style and word choices stand out to me the most. Awesome job!

Keep Writing,

Review of Dead on arrival  
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (4.5)
Hey again

So i am guessing, and tell me if i am wrong in my interpretation, that jennifer and joe were on a hijacked plane, possibly headed for the world trade center of the pentagon on 9/11. I get that because their deaths still "send shock waves". I thought that this was a very good, touching representation of such an event. You did a great thing with a tough subject. :)

I thought your diction and general flow/rhythm were not quite up to perfection, but did they need to be? To me, good poetry effectively exudes great emotion from the reader. you did that for me, so great job!You created a political piece without drawing battle lines as well, so again, good job.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this short poem! very well done! Keep Writing!

Review of A Dream Molder  
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (4.0)
Hey!

I enjoyed reading your poem "A Dream Molder". this is very well written in sensible verse, and i like the overall flow and continuity within this piece.

My suggestion to you is to slightly speed-up the action by makig your passive verses more active. "different options for developing" sounds better to me, at least, as "different options to develop". The following line could use the same love in my oppinion.

Overall i liked this piece, and remember, these suggestions are purely my own and you can disregard them if you wish. Thank you for offering such an interesting, well-written piece!

Keep Writing!!

Review of The Escape Plan  
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (4.0)
Your writing style is unique and your story-telling ability is great, to me at least. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story, and i find it curious and fascinating that this actually happened. Your are the Dave of whom you speak? Anyway, back to the story. To me, this is a highly creative and interesting set of events that you record. The way in which you consistently bring in Dave's mathematical, analytical, and calculating mind is very cool to say the least.

However, some aspects of this story can be somewhat confusing to a reader, such as the ending and the relationships between the characters Dave and Maureen, for example. I suggest making this story longer to add more detail about said things. I like the fact that the story is somewhat elusive, though, because a good mystery and using some brains is always, always a good thing. But this may be a little too elusive. Maybe you meant it to be this way, i dont know.

There are also some grammatical errors scattered through this piece, nothing major at all. Hardly noticeable to the casual reader, actually. these sentences are examples of some that may need some brief attention:

(a) Fire came next. Had to.
(b) Daves choices were clear, and stark
(c) forgotten kinda place

a-- Overall, i am enamored by your use of vernacular speech when getting inside Dave's (your) mind. However, The part "had to" is simply grammatically incorrect, unless used in dialogue. "It had to" would suffice.

b--"Dave's"; a mere oversight. just a formality :)

c--Again, love the vernacular as long as it holds true to simple grmmar rules. "kinda" is not really a word unless used in speech--kind of.

Let me emphasize that i love the vernacular diction that you have going on throughout. It is best in this kind of writing because it truly allows the reader to get inside Dave's head, so to speak. You do a splendid job with this throughout with just a couple of minor mistakes, just read this over carefully. Though mainly vernacular, your diction also includes more elevated words that make your writing much more interesting and rich. I gave you a 4 because this piece has potential to be amazing and very amusing. Just maybe make it longer to avoid some confusion by adding detail, and fix the few grammatical errors.

as a side note, it humors me that you placed this under the genre "how-to/advice".

Keep Writing!!

Hey!

This is a great poem because, once again, your word choices are brilliant in representing just the right tone to the reader. Your use of alliteration, especially in the first line of the final stanza with the letter "t" also stands out vibrantly and makes for great reading. Thank you for sharing!

Hey!

Thanks for sharing this great poem! What stands out to me the most about this piece is the use of interesting diction. Your word choices are great in that they produce an awesome tone for the poem as a whole. My favorite line was "the barbed wire that surrounded my heart, corroded" because it is a unique metaphor that i wouldn't have ever thought of. Overall, this was a great poem with awesome diction and metaphor!

I really enjoyed reading your piece of poetry here. I thought your flow and structure was ecellent! well done there. but you are wondering why i gave you a four. Though i like the topic, it's just a bit oversused. Your message doesn't really say anything very clear and memorable. Though, i must admit this is one reader;s take on this...and it is a WONDERFUL holiday read. It really is. thank your for sharing!

Review of An Eternal Love.

Rated: 13+ | (4.5)
This was a really enjoyable read! the story that you present here is a unqiue look at an ancient horror story. I don't know if i have ever come across anything like this in terms of showing this side of the story--the victim's side. Also, the vampiric love you illustrate is really interesting. Your word choices are great, and i love the rhythm here. Overall, great job! thank you for sharing!

Hey,

I enjoyed reading this poem, i thought it was quite good. I think everyone can imagine the scene that you portray because i think we have all been there. And you ended it well with the "it's quite fun not to know", it is kind of humurous. Thanjs for the great read!

I heard a band sing "You write such pretty words, but love's no story book. Love's an excuse to get hurt....and to hurt". That was my initial impression of this poem, actually, as that song came to my mind. I loved this poem that you have here. Your word choices are great, and your flow is generally good. So great job on this! Keep Writing!

Hey,

I really, really enjoyed reading your poem! this was really good, overall. My one problem was a small one of organization. Your lines, and indeed your beats, become longer and more numerous repectively towards the end of your poem. This distracts from your overall flow and feel of the poem. However, this is not enough to fully distract, and rememeber this is one reader's oppinion. thanks for the great read!

Let me preface this by saying that i do not totally agree with your politcal beliefs mainly because of this line "bush and cheney abuse executive priveledge...". Well it seems today that our current presidency horribly abuses executive power through his application of bogus designations such as czars, overtaking of american businesses such as car companies, and his desire to overthrow private health insurance. So i really do not see how you can say this of bush. (no, i do not and did not agree with the bush/cheney administration in MANY areas). Again, this is just my oppinion of the world.

Onto your poem. though, again, i disagree with you politically, i think you have a solid piece of work here. (i really am trying to be objjective). Your flow, however, could use a tiny bit of work. Your diction is not completely perefect, as i thnk you are able to create a much more powerful piece. I do realize that this piece is much more about message, though. i just think that you can make your point more poignant by making your tone more powerful.

Overall you did a good job here, thanks for the thought-provoking read! Keep Writing!

To me, this is an interesting piece. i liked reading it overall, i just think that the flow was a bit off throughout the poem. i like the message within this poem, though. You tell an interesting story, here. I just think that maybe you should look over the rhythm of this poem. this is just one reader's oppinion, i am no expert. i just know what feels and sounds good to me and me alone. thanks for the great read!

Review of Dark Poetry  
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: 13+ | (4.5)
You have a very nice mix of horror/monster/dark genres with a bit of erotica and psychology to add some interests. though i am not a fan of erotica, the little i have seen you do well. My favorite piece is probably "anger" because everyone can agree and understand you there, unless they aren't human that is. Your poetry is quite good, and it is a pleasure to read. Thank you for the poems, and Keep Writing!

Review of Unconditional  
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (4.0)
This is a good poem. Though this can be taken to mean a devotion to God or another higher power, this could also be (more simply) a love poem, or ode, to a lover. i love the ability to be more than one thing. "my knees need polished by my floor" is my favorite line because of its obvious meaning of prater. i just think you said it in a clevor way. My only problem with this piece is the general rhythm throghout this poem. Maybe making your sllyable usage per line coudl be benefiicial? That is merely one reader;s oppinion!

Thank you for the great read! Write on!

Review of A sad princess  
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: 18+ | (4.5)
Well, I liked this piece quite a bit. Though i usually do not go for the fairy-tale genre, this strikes me as unique. This is so because of its realism in character development and theme. This is just like any other poem with no princes or princesses because its message is the same and is delivered in a similar tone. I liked that a lot. the difference here is that fairy tales have the same emotion that others have. your flow was beautiful and your imagery was great. thank you for sharing such an interestingly great piece of work! Keep Writing!

Review of Nighttime Lover  
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: 18+ | (4.0)
i thought that is a very interesting and creative piece that inspires me. Your imagery and desciptions are all very good here, and i like your somwhow somber and dark tone you have going on. My only problem was subtle problems in the general flow of the poem. for instance, the second stanza sounds somewhat choppy in the lines "time and time again...you take all of me". your rhythm is slowed somwhat in that second line, which hinders the flow slightly. Good work here, just simply read over it again and make a few minor revisions and i think you will be set. Just focus on syllables and beats within lines as to compared to other lines. Keep Writing!
