The Fall

The Fall

A Poem by Sage

The Fall

Hey there, pretty face!
I know there have been a lot of things to say
You might think I'm crazy or insane
For who would even try this hard?

Well, there are fools and then there are romantic fools
I just so happen to belong to the second sort
Hopeless, not really hopeless
You are my bright, inner mind

You knock sense into me when it's needed
Like how someone knocks an arrow in a bow
It's just that the arrow does not leave, and you too will not
They say people fall into tricks and traps like love and all

Little do they know, 'twas that year's fall
That I couldn't help but fall for you
Not the little tricks and traps people talk about
But for your grace, wit, charm and soul

So, let me ask you- "Will you stay?"
If you don't, well there's nothing I can say
But let me get this straight,
I'm there for you whenever you need me

I won't leave you for any reason
Be it hot or cold, sick or health
For that matter, any season
I'll be there for you 

Times might change, just like the wind
The feelings might seem subtle
Deep and ripe, they will become with time
The last leaf might fall, but my love will not

For, let me make this clear
This is not an option, it is the only truth
I'll be there no matter what you choose
You're the one thing I'd never want to lose

Eh lil' slice of affection tipped with some metaphors. Oh sorry that was a summary not a critique let me try again. There's nothing that really stands out or uplifting nor that emotional. Now a part that I could be a bit of an arse for is: Like how someone knocks an arrow in a bow It's just that the arrow does not leave, and you too will not. Following things are mostly nitpicks but whatevs. First is the comparison you made, a nice comparison mind, that is followed by a pretty needless line in which you are basically saying: it's like that thing except for this and this, which kinda ruins the impact of the comparison. Now the other thing about it is that you say that she won't leave but in few other occasions you ask her whether she'll leave. No I don't have anything better to do than write overlong comments on other peoples' works. Now that I've said everything negative I could think of about this poem let me say that it's ok and did have feelings spread trough it though with a bit stronger metaphors,comparisons and a bit more rhyming,as somebody below recommended, it could go from ok to good or pretty good and make those feelings leave a bigger impact on us . Oh and don't take these reviews of mine too hard they are meant to be extremely negative so that the person could improve their writing as much as possible after each poem/story rather than to offend that person or make them feel bad.

I like the concept you've created for this piece, but I think there's some areas that could use some clean up. You use a few objects as metaphors and symbolism, but you almost end up diminishing your work's value by forming a double negative with them. An example would be the knocking of the arrow from the bow. I would, actually, revise that stanza as it reverses itself. What I mean is that you say something to the affect of "You won't leave" and then in the same stanza you also say something like "You will leave." If it's a conflicting emotion, definitely separate the two into different stanzas. Poetry, much like general writing, needs to be concise or the nature of the piece gets muddled by too much conflict. You say this is the first time writing in prose; poetry without rhyming. I would offer this, in regards to this being your first jab at it; You write very well. This was a fantastic attempt at prose, but I think if you go back and review and clean up this piece, you'll see that the organization of it is ricocheting from one emotion, to another, and back again. If you'd like me to break down this piece further, mail me. But, I also respect that as a fellow writer, this is your work and yours alone. If you see it as being well written and prefer not to change it, I will respect that. Best of luck, Sage! And keep writing!

Poems, as I think doesn't really need rhymes. Objective is to express the feelings in such a way that it touches the readers heart, The objective has been fulfilled

Haha, if this isn't constructive, I don't know what is! Thank you a lot!
Love make fools of all men. This come to mind when I read the first line of the second stanza.
I enjoyed reading it, and I can related to it. Keep them coming.

I'm happy you could relate to it. Thank you.
The question of love.
"So let me ask you once more,
Will you stay or will you go?
I'll be there no matter what you choose
You're the one thing I'd never want to lose"
I like the song "Should I stay or should I go." The escape question come to life often in a long life. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
