ok i needed help on this one....but the person who i went to for help and who will remain nameless didnt help me much.. not very happy with it...tell me where i can improve alrighty?   thanx very much!!  

      Hot air blows over tired eyes,
      A caress healing severed ties.
      Wait for the destroying winter,
      When hearts break and loves splinter.
      Hold all souls in glass jars.
      The hot air burns and charrs.
      Cold south wind keeps and preserves
      Commodities an asthetic heart deserves.
      Warmth of touching and breathing,
      Leave blood filled hearts concieving.
      Ice freezes heavenly shafts of light
      Silencing paint-cracked faces' plight.

      Lukewarm love given chance to heave
      Falling deeper, redder like autumn leaves.
      Cold morning dew gives rise to a spring sun
      Drying warm the cobwebbs winter night has spun

"Life is not long and boring,
it's short and compelling." -Javier Agosto-

Do you know what? I don't actually think it needs to be improved anywhere. It has a nice run through it and your imagery is awesome.
So nope, it's all good in my books. But ,my books don't always count  

Dopey was the advice, wasn't he?

Hmm... ^^  There is no way in the world I could ever manage to figure out exactly how to fix this poem... the rhymes were right and everything, and there's just nothing I could say that could add to the poem in any way... of course, I am not one to go to for poetic advice anyways, eh? ^^  So, let's do something I am good at... well at least, that I'd like to think I'm good at.

The poem had one problem that bugged me to pieces... the lines stand alone! x_X  This poem is supposed to be like that, being a string of thoughts which have weak links between them, like spinning off of tangents, but poems like that put me into a tizzy, especially if they happen to be RHYMED.  HELP!!!!  Every time I read through it, I mentally tried to link the two lines that rhymed together... and they didn't fit all that well...

Okay, so they did fit, to some extent... they read as a sentence. ^^;  But beyond the whole "each rhymed line pair is actually a sentence" deal, the lines did not fit together in any way... the emotions were skewed, the thoughts were skewed and the flow was slightly skewed... almost parallel, but somewhat skewed nonetheless...

The line pairs were pretty, but they kinda made the poem flow differently... sort of like a river formed by a bunch of tributaries. ^_^  It's still a river, despite the tributaries, but the tributaries each have their own source and their own paths... but they will blend together to make the poem. ^^

And though I liked the poem, reading it slowly isn't something that this poem enjoys a virtue of... it's a poem that must be read somewhat briskly, but without too much rhythm... otherwise, the rhymes start to drive you up the wall and... well, I think it only bothers me because I think too much...

See, most people aren't cursed... it's an evil personality flaw... x_X  Ah, well... hehehe ^_^  *thumbs up*  I thought the poem was pretty when I finally gained my concentration and read it the way I thought it should be read, but when I was reading it rhythmically and slowly, I was about to tear something out of a wall... ^^;  Love your work, and would love to see more!

Holatuwol and Liz both say that this poem doesn't need to be genius who didnt help you....who will be nameless *me me me* didn't help you much because he, aswell, didn't see anything wrong with the poem. So HA!
I enjoyed the poem with it! It is well written!

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

haha...ok yeah he confessed were meant to keep it quiet dopes!! glad you guys enjoyed it..thank you for reading!!

holatuwol-you're right..i mean i think the reason i was displeased with this one was cuz i didnt really know what was wrong with it but knew that i didnt like it cuz there was sumthing wrong with're right too in saying that the thoughts seemed to go off at a tangent..but i wrote this really quickly and the thoughts came out real quick too...and when i do read it i tend to read it really the thoughts may seem a little going to take your advice with the rhyming though..i think that that was a good tip...hahha..i suck at rhyme..i can never work it properly but yes thanx for that tip ill keep it in mind for next time...this one i dont think i have the energy to work on to complete anymore..but thank you oh so much for the advice.. ..maybe the next one youll see is this in freeverse haha...ok i wont torture you..

Well here's another one which you showed me before. I didn't know that you didn't like it much.I thought it was excellent-better then anything i can write out in a million years!!
But then again you are a "purr-fection-ist" (dont HIT me!!).
You do really well in writing stuff like this.I don't have a clue of what it's about though- I think that it's about "love"-but I'm not so sure.
You have to tell me one day ok?
Bye bebe!!!
