|This is a review for "Do You See Me?" from House Targaryen for "Game of Thrones"
Do you see the ghost that haunts you - in the dark, in the shadows, under the sheets?
WHAT I LIKED
I liked the word play. For me, I perceived we all have "ghosts," or "fears" or "demons" that haunt us, actions we've done, or haven't, and these ghosts, or fears haunt us even when we don't see them. Their hidden, lurking, waiting for that one moment of angst to dare us to make them real. I almost think it's easier to see them when we're children, too. After all, aren't we afraid of what we might see the under the bed when we're 5?
This is a free form poem with no rythme scheme. I how the 1st line is not indented and the rest are. The presentation of the them gives a natural rythym when read.
I did not spot any spelling/punctuation mistakes. The poem is easy to read and challenges the reader to discover their own interpretation.
There's enough to experience the emotion the poem evokes.
I especially liked: Do you see me
on the floor of the basement?
beneath your soles
beneath the world
A dynamic read. This poem blew me away.
