A Poem by Gregory H.

I sit here alone,
in this empty room.
What should I do,
I have not a clue.

My siibilings are fighting,
they're driving me nuts.
So I'll keep on writing,
and saving my guts.

From sisters with nails,
and a brother with a temper.
When books start to sail,
they'll need to remember.

That in their dispute,
there's one thing that's greater.
The kindness of words,
and love from a hater.

What is the meaning,
you may ask yourself.
It's really quite simple,
I'll explain what it's about.

It takes two to tango,
is what they all say.
The same goes for fighting,
it takes two to stray.

While killing each other,
I sit here and wonder.
For what reason on earth,
you'd slay one another.

The reason is clear,
as mud in a glass.
So put down your fists,
and give them a kiss.

And maybe just then,
the anger will die.
The fists will come down,
the claws will retract.

Then all will return,
the way that it was.
With me in the floor,
of my dark empty room.

First thing I noticed was that your broke from your rhyming scheme about halfway through and it broke the tempo of your work. It also seems as though your scratching the surface of what you really want to say. Possibly limiting your actual feelings and sacrificing them in favor of form and rhyme.

As your friend below said, try experimenting a bit with different form and digging a little deeper. Don't limit yourself to form and function. Explore the true depths of your thoughts and words.

This was great. I can relate so much to this write. I liked your flow and I had a picture in my head of your bro and sis fighting, nicely done.

Dear Gregory,

Thank you -sincerely- for all you have did for me. Thank you for your read request and for sharing this with me, your reader.

Your poetry is growing into a more broad sense, but work on expression of how you feel because it feels that you are the mercy of the poem just glimpsing through. As I reread through, I picked up more of your great potential. Your rhymes don't seem forced. It all seems to flow, just work on experimenting or maybe writing longer so that when you read it, it doesn't make the reader become unfocused. Don't get me wrong, Greg. I loved this work and it's general theme as it's one that I can relate to, but something in it just seems a little off. A lack of depth perhaps. You're a great writer.

Thanks again for the read request. You are an inspiration to me to keep writing and growing. Down the road of hard times, don't forfeit what is within you. You are your own best inspiration. Those around you will envy you and hate you when you soar over their heads, but remember to always keep writing. If you want me to proofread this a bit, just give me a message and I will. 9.3/10.

Thanks again.
