A self portrait

A self portrait

A Poem by Mairwen
"

Asked to create a poem in the form of a list for my university work and this is what I produced. Poem expresses frustration.

"
A face reveals everything, but never what it should, 
A voice never stops, until it needs to speak, 
A smile brightens a room, but never a heart, 
A mind runs, legs walk, 
Hands reach, 
Fingertips grazing the possibility, 
The itching possibility, 
That eyes might finally see.

I can feel the frustration in your piece. Everything does something but not exactly what it is supposed to do unless it is doing it but not to the extent it should. Nicely crafted. If I might make a suggestion, don't capitalize the first letter of the line following a comma...it just kind of confuses the reader or maybe it is just me. Welcome to the site, I hope you enjoy yourself here.

TS might not be Frost or Eliot but combined with Nix they made music. Perhaps another colab?...
