Alchemy

A Poem by Michael S
"

Heart Speaks

"

Like a Picasso’s art

She robbed my heart

Like a scent of rain

It was a sweet pain

With her sharp look

She kept me in nook
With her stormy eyes

She told me many lies

Like a wave of sea

Making my life bouncy

 In her blatant Tsunami

She turned me into Alchemy

Amazing poetry my friend. You would make Donne jealous with these words. The words tender and powerful. I felt the need and the emotion in these wonderful words. This is real poetry for the want of love. Thank you Michael for sharing the outstanding poetry.

For the Hip-Hop Lyrics contest
First, this doesn't read like hip hop lyrics. I have to wonder why you submitted it to a contest labelled as such. Regardless, I'll treat it as 12 bars.
-Lyricism: 3/10. Good hip-hop lyricism comes from the ability to use a rhyme scheme that is multi-syllabic for several bars. Internal rhyming is also great. The words that you rhymed with are relatively basic as opposed to what I was looking for.
-Originality/Creativity: 6/10. I give full credit to originality (as I can't compare that to anybody that I'm aware of), and I give 1 point out of 5 for creativity (as this concept has been done, redone, hashed, and rehashed for centuries).
-Metaphors: 8.5/10. What can I say? Great usage of the water metaphor (storms, waves, tsunamis, and Picasso's Old Man Playing Guitar (which is blue, so props)). And, there are so many more small metaphors that are scattered about.
-Similes: 6.5/10. The similes that made sense were fantastic, though the second one made little to no sense. How is the smell of rain painful? The most I can stretch it is by saying she tortured you, so rain reminds you of how she metaphorically waterboarded you. Though, that's really stretching it.
-Message: 5/10. While it was a good message, I felt that it was incomplete. The external message is evident, but what about your internal reactions to it? It's obvious that she hurt you, but how did that make you feel?
-Wordplay: 0/10. I scanned this piece up and down and I simply couldn't find any wordplay in sight. Correct me if I'm wrong.
-Total: 4.8/10. Let me clear something up, though. I really like this piece. I'm simply grading it as objectively as possible for the contest.

The moment your pen starts bleeding is the most magnificent feeling indeed! I'm glad you finally opened up! And with so touching words..
Keep on writing but never to impress anyone.. You know you can write, just never let anyone tell you otherwise!
I loved the starting lines and the imagination that comes into one's mind while reading this.. All in all, a great starting piece ☺👍

You're welcome, Michael! It was a pleasure indeed! ☺
Nice! i like how it ended with the transformation. I had a hint of your very original style of writing. I cant wait to read more. "she kept me in nook" was my favorite line, there is a lot of possibilities in which one could interpret that (safe or locked away) good write!

Thank you so much Ana for your review and appreciation :-) I am glad that you loved my first write.
The Poet that you have always been has struggled to the surface. Reading other's poetry has satisfied the urge, the calling to write until now. The moment has come, you have found the confidence to pull open the curtains and lift up the shades, giving the world a look in. Poetry is the window into the Poets life, their journey a view to the soul. We poets write as it is part of our very existence the same as eating and breathing.
In her blatant Tsunami
she turned me to alchemy
These lines tell me that not only is she powerful, she is also to blame. I enjoy this Poem for one because it has a warm glow of shy love flowing through it. The other is you admit in your lines how vulnerable you are. But In the end my friend yes it is worth it. Your flow is perfect the rhythm of it carries one right threw. Well, done my friend the first view into you is inspiring. You actually made me smile with the last two lines. Bravo

A lovely poem to start with and good rhyming.
