Mine

Mine

A Poem by Gregory Hill

All alone, standing here,

Staring into the mirr',

Grasping hands of cold fear,

And then losing a tear...

 

You must only obey,

Let the fire burn away,

Any thoughts of dismay,

In their leaving, you stay.

The flow is really good in this line. I do agree with Scott on tweaking the fourth line to shedding a tear. Though this is short the emotion in it is exceptional. Great writing please do more;)

Sorry this one took me so long to get to.
I like the flow of this one, and I like the short and sweetness of it. :D However, I think the one rhyme 'mirr' should be changed, it's pretty weird. One rhyme that comes to mind is seer.
Also, in the fourth line perhaps instead of 'losing a tear' 'shedding a tear' would be better, because losing a tear is a hard thing to picture (for me).
But I like this, still.

I rolled my eyes at the picture, but the poem was good.
But are you sure mirror rhymes with here fear, and tear? that was the only qualm I had about it.
Good job! Keep writing.

I love this! Although it is a little short, it's amazingly interesting. Sometimes, less is more. I rarely read poems, long or short, that have lines that speak for themselves.
Well written, and great job!
