Dear Ron,

This is a most interesting and captivating piece. This style is generally not my cup of tea, but I have to admit that here you have wonderful turn of phrase and an emotion and style that pulls the reader in, giving him/her glimpses of himself/herself and life's truths. These truths aren't laid bare, but are hinted at, kept somewhat at arms length and shrouded in mystery, but you catch a flash of insight every few lines and can smell the tangible honey-musk of truth. It is an intoxicating poem that speaks to the emotions, which swell at these discoveries.

A most powerful write.

As my friends well know, I am not easy with high ratings. I will not review a poem if I can't rate it at 90 or above. Generally, if I rate at 95 or above, you've definitely earned my respect. Here, however, is a clean 98 rating. I've never given higher. 100 is impossible because no poem can ever be perfect. And if I ever find a 99 poem, I'm sure I will go blind immediately after reading it. This poem has me tearing and squinting from its brightness.

Wonderful poem. Simply inspiring.

Very best regards,

Thanks for reviewing Faces. I'm glad you liked it.


Very good. Though I agree with another reviewer that you really should remove the baby. I find it a bit strange and its presence almost made me not read this poem. Otherwise, thumbs up!

Cool but freaking long. I read the beginning, some middle parts, and the end. If this was preformed by an expressive person I could see it being really great to listen to. Hope you find peace in your darkness.

Obviously over your head, but jabber on.
Well, I do understand what you're going for here, but really, that cheesy baby at the top has really got to go.
As for your actual content, it's a little long, and you seem to end up repeating yourself a little. Your word choice seems a little odd in places and while I think you've created a good, suitably epic mood, I don't think you've used it particularly well for this piece. It's well-written, to be sure, but there's something off about it.

Yeah, that baby is somewhat disquieting to me and It and should be removed ASAP.

A bit too long for my taste.

This could be many separate poems in of it itself, though I enjoyed it a lot.
