My Review of PAIN by kitty
Nicely put together kitty, and pain does seem to be a part of life and existence in a big way almost all the time. Everyone experiences it at some stage, and we all have our own ways of dealing with it. Like you say, some suffer in silence, and others want to tell the world and shout it out.Thanks for a thoughtful read.

My Review of Joyful Dissonance by SketerMichaels
I often wonder why people end up preferring certain types of music over others, and think its perhaps with the way their brain is wired, so certain genres of music suit their mind more. What one person hears as annoying, random noise, can hold much appeal to somebody else. I suppose some seek a tune or a melody, whereas others may seek more of a feeling, and the use of the word 'dissonant' here is interesting. This is a well constructed piece that made me think and dwell on. The author note was useful in relation to the poem too. A good one this, thanks for the read.

My Review of
Out of Love (Emptiness)
by Littlesong
This is a piece written and composed with a lot of heart and emotion, with wonderful imagery and description. It has something of a melancholic feel to it, but life and our feelings can be that way sometimes. Yes, a heartfelt piece that although put under the despair category is very well penned. Thanks for an enjoyable read.

My Review of Cooked by caitlinjochitko
An intriguing poem this - I wonder if it's directed more at society as a whole, or is it more the demons inside us as individuals. This piece certainly had me thinking whilst reading it, and that's a good thing most of the time. I enjoyed reading your piece, so thanks for sharing. All the best to you.

My Review of On Wings of Love by JimSlaughter
I like the way this was put together, It's a piece that works well with timely pauses, but I think that comes naturally because of the way you've structured it. I think most of us want love at some points in our lives, so hopefully there's someone suitable out there for you sooner rather than later. A fine poem this, very nicely composed.

My Review of Rusty Hopes by BobQuinn
This comes across as a sombre piece, with the writer reflecting on hopes that never came to be, or were probably out of reach. The rhythm and flow here are both excellent, and it is a piece I read through a good few times to try and take it in and ponder over it for a while. It's a poem that got me thinking, but certainly an enjoyable one, and I like your style of writing. Thanks for sharing your poem.

My Review of Ups & Downs by fraido
This is very cleverly put together with some excellent imagery. Quite a unique style of writing in many regards, but has much appeal in my opinion. It flows nicely, and has something relatable about it in regards the subject matter, yet still has plenty to make the reader smile about along the way. I liked this one - so thanks for an enjoyable read.

My Review of Hands-on Reading Promotes Critical-Thinking Skills by MaryMills
I found reading this article interesting. I agree that reading different material can't be underestimated, and can be particularly useful for children at a young age to assist with learning and progression. Obviously it's a hobby that everyone can enjoy, and it doesn't need to be expensive. A well put together piece this, which makes a lot of sense, and gives some good information too.

My Review of Good for Gum by richom
So brilliantly put together. An effortless flow and rhythm with the added bonus of humour thrown in. The fourth stanza was my favourite I think - but the whole piece is delightful, A truly enjoyable and clever poem. Much thanks for an enjoyable read.

My Review of Technology!! by matelotrod
Technology is in many ways both a blessing and a curse. It certainly has it's advantages, but alas it has meant that people, mostly the young, but others as well, are literally checking social media every couple of minutes if not more. It took a fair while to get to the point we are today, but now it's here, I don't see it changing too much. I think some people have to make a conscience effort not to get hooked on their phones, or run the risk of losing valuable interaction face to face that isn't just through a piece of equipment.
I suppose all generations familiarise themselves to the time they are in, and people often reminisce of how things once were. Nothing wrong in that, but time will mean progression. Whether an individual embraces that or likes it is another matter. A topical, and well written piece. Thanks for a good read.

My Review of What to do, What to do by RamSlade
Placing this under the 'Dark' category, makes me think that this is quite a personal piece coming from deep within the readers mind and thoughts. Sometimes with certain minds, we have to express ourselves in a way that is a release and output of those inner feelings. A very likeable poem, and I must say, I do like the use of the word 'betwixt'. Credit for a fine piece - thanks for an intriguing read.

My Review of You Were There by smitten25
A warm and heartfelt piece which is nicely structured and has some fine rhythm along the way too. I'm sure your dad will be moved by your words and your feelings. A poem that certainly expresses your inner feelings and emotions very well. All the best to you.

My Review of This is for the People who Feel like Me by smitten25
A very heartfelt and introspective piece here which was interesting to read. Some of it is very relatable, but of course it's a personal piece that expresses your own feelings and expresses them very well. I think depression and certain states of mind are very hard to shift completely, and perhaps stay with some individuals in some capacity without ever completely leaving. I suppose it's how we deal with it that matters, and hopefully not letting it eat away at us and take over our lives so that it becomes damaging. Different things work for different people, so I hope you are able to find enough good in your life to outweigh things in life that can get you down. Life certainly isn't easy at times, so try not to be too hard on yourself. All the best.

My Review of Sabbatical by fraido
Even though you've listed this partly under humour, I think there's some truth to it, in that it would be better to let a good piece build up over time, rather than just throw something out there quick for the sake of it. Having said that, maybe poetry can be one of those things, a bit like music or lyrics in some ways, that only a certain percentage of what we create will we ever be truly happy with or feel has real worth when looking back in years to come. An interesting piece, with a good structure and flow to it. I enjoyed this.

My Review of Fades with time by sunnisha
There is some very nice imagery and word usage here, and in many instances, things do fade away with time. I guess that's why we have to appreciate things when we have them. because life is so short. I enjoyed reading your poem, and felt it had a good flow and rhythm to it. Thank you for a nice read.

My Review of Mediclueless, a hypochondriac's lament by JimSlaughter
Hilarious - There are some people who believe they have conditions far more serious than the actual reality. Even the author note made me chuckle on this one. Glad to hear your in good health, and fit enough to post this humorous and finely penned poem. S/L methinks.

My Review of The Trees by Stella
This is an intriguing piece. The fist stanza had me pondering the most perhaps - an individuals importance is dependant on many things, but I guess in this piece it's saying compared to trees that carry on reproducing, ones importance is questioned, and seen as minimal, or almost non existent. Its a poem that's putting things in comparison to something grander and more permanent than ourselves - in this case, The Trees. It's also questioning the way humans act and conduct themselves, but of course there will always be good and bad on this earth in that regard. I liked this piece, as it's one to ponder over if re-read and thought on. Much to gleam from a well written piece. I'll spotlight it.

My Review of Awakening by JohnCreekmore
Another strong piece here - I agree that the arrangement here is fine, and doesn't need changing at all. I think we could live for a million years and still not be completely happy/content about the way we do things and think an alternative might be better in some way. Do we get wiser as we get older? In many ways of course we do - but no matter what comes before us, we still continue to make mistakes, and question choices that we make. The beginning of this piece makes me think of something along a spiritual line, like praying or seeking a personal place to dwell and ponder ones existence and thoughts, and as the piece goes on, it's as if the writer is starting to consider things in a new light, and wonders of the importance of things that have been, I really like the use of the 5 words beginning with U in the last stanza. This is a fine poem that I very much enjoyed, and I'd have thought it might be put under the personal category - although having said that, I've often just put poems under general/other without the hassle of pigeon-holing posts, so that's not a criticism at all. S/L.

My Review of Baby Boy by annalame
Sorry about your sad loss. Life can be a very cruel thing at times. Hopefully writing this piece can help just a little, but of course the love you had/have for your little boy will always be there. It's not something that will ever be easy of course, and it's a credit to you for expressing your feelings out in the open through your poem. I wont rate this with stars because I don't feel that's important. However, it was very warmly and lovingly written, and a very sweet and heartfelt letter to your son whom will always remain in your heart.

My Review of Comparisons by JohnCreekmore
Are people judged based on what they have or do not have? Almost certainly. Perhaps not always, but often enough that's for sure. This is a poem that's relatable for many people I would say, and feel you have created a piece that's relevant at all times. I suppose many of us think of what we don't have, but perhaps realise we have much compared to others. A thought provoking piece very well constructed. S/L

My Review of Melody of the Countryside by RachelMurray
Interesting that you put this partly under the category of music. It reads very well as a poem with great word usage and imagery, and a very nice flow too. I wonder if you had the background music in mind when you wrote this, or have actually created this to accompany a certain tune. A really strong piece this which I very much enjoyed. I'll spotlight this one.

My Review of Over the horizon by ethicalbabe68
Incredibly intense, and really deep and meaningful. There is some fantastic word usage and imagery here, it's actually hard to pick out one specific line, because there are many excellent moments within. As a whole this has some truly brilliant and captivating lines and emotion. A very good poem indeed, that is clearly about a sad and difficult subject. Spotlight for this one.

My Review of She is your light by kashaw
The imagery is very good here, and overall this is nicely put together. Some very enjoyable lines throughout - I particularly enjoyed the line - 'A roundabout of turnings, a street with no light.' I sense you put a good amount of heart, effort, and feeling into this piece, and it was enjoyable to read, even though it was sad in subject. All the best to you.
