  • Recommend improvements for this poem? (My first poem)?

    You made me feel loved, when I already accepted I was unloveable. You took that back. You made me feel worthy, when I already felt worthless. You took that back. You made me feel comfortable in my own skin, when I already felt uncomfortable living in it. You took that back. You made me feel alive, when I already... show more
    You made me feel loved, when I already accepted I was unloveable. You took that back. You made me feel worthy, when I already felt worthless. You took that back. You made me feel comfortable in my own skin, when I already felt uncomfortable living in it. You took that back. You made me feel alive, when I already felt like a walking corpse. You took that back. I foolishly gave you the only thing I had. It was my love. You took that and refused to give it back, to store as a souvenir to your collection. Now I can never give the only thing I once had. If I can take something back, it would be all the moments I spent loving you.

  • I had a little dream where the dreamers scream...?

    Best answer: "We" and "They" are entirely too vague, but more the issue I see is this needs at least a line or two of "introduction" / "back story"

  • Could somebody please critique this poem?

    Best answer: Some great vocabulary in this. It's refreshing to see something beyond the usual teen angst and cliche love poems we see here. The end rhyme contributes some great humor to the piece.

  • Feedback, please?

    Best answer: Hopefully this doesn't represent you feeling your worst, though the premise certainly fits many, and not poetically.
    The piece is OK, but could use some work; for one making it more pointed, harsh, true to life, though you can certainly show you're maintaining hope.

  • What does the theme war have an effect on a reader in a poem?

    Best answer: Assuming you mean what Cogito asked, I would hazard a few guesses. War means death, breaking up of families, huge changes to life, starting over. All very stressful things to people. Moreso to those who have actually experienced those.

    In my english class my teacher is obsessed with poems. He told us to write one to start of our poetry unit. The theme was emotion... kinda vague but whatever! :) Any who there is no format for this poem so i kind of just went off and wrote down whatever. If anyone willing would like to edit it in any way? Absolutely destroy it if you'd like to.. I want it to be fantastic. Here it is: The blacks and greys and whites all swarm around me; a sudden flash And instantly my heart sinks below the ground. Below the piercing yellow of the sun once warming my cheeks and the flashing blue of the sky that once lay blanketed over the ground. Beneath the grass, once a vibrant green that echoed a harmonious calm through my eyes Below the dirt, once riddled with a deep dark brown that send warmth through my toes Surpassing the fiery reds that once festoon the hells And the magnificent yellows and oranges that once blinded my gazing eyes. But now the sun shines a dim grey and the blanket of a sky mimics that of slate. The grass shifts to a solemn charcoal The dirt no longer warms my toes The fiery hells are extinguished by the bland hues of black and white. And as you slowly slip from my fingertips I keep you only in my colorless memory.

    Best answer: Poor but lived in a park,
    sneaking around after dark,
    a few friends that I did like,
    got a gift by finding a bike.

    We always had fun,ever dirt poor,
    taking back bottles to the grocery store,
    A nickel each, made a dollar to spend,
    plus my family was my friend.

    Rich or poor regardless of what you've been told,
    you need to laugh and let life unfold.
