O Cherished One

O Cherished One

A Poem by Gregory Hill

 

I guide you now,

I wipe your tears,

O cherished one,

I quench your fears.

 

I shield your body,

I guard your soul,

I hold you down,

You I console.

 

Though I save you,

Push me away,

Still I won't go,

With you I stay.

 

Will you trust me?

But now you ask all,

"How can I believe that,

To stand I must fall."

 

Life draws to an end;

Were you a hater?

Were you a lover?

Or instigator?

 

But you were mine,

When life was done,

You belonged to me,

O Cherished one.

Very interesting, Greg.
I just had one problem with it;
You used two comma's seemingly in the wrong places ;) right here: "And, you I console." and right here "But, you were mine," or, if not in the wrong places, they are unnecessary.
Other than that nice write! Thanks for the request.

I thought this poem was actually very nice.

Very very nice! I'm not sure that I love the rhyming in this... usually I am a sucker for people that can pull of a good rhyme sceme in a poem but in this it just seems out of place... aside from that I love the emotion in this!

Would you mind reviewing mine? I would a appreciate it! Anyway good job! :)

This one isn't my favorite of yours but i think the idea behind it is good.
I only have a problem with two lines. When a rhyme feels forced it ruins the poem for me. This line seemed forced;
You I console.
it seems like you're working to get a rhyme in there. I'd suggest a little rewriting.
However, I really liked the idea behind this. And I like the line 'how can I believe that | to stand I must fall.' That was great. Liked it.
Keep writing, and sorry I took so long to get to this,

Meter's okay, but breaks down in the fifth st., from a smooth a-b-c-b, to a-b-c-c. Try a semicolon instead of a comma after L.1, then reverse lines 2&3, and change "An" to "Or" in L.4:
Life draws to an end;
Were you a hater?
Were you a lover,
Or instigator?

Also "guard" is misspelled.
As to content, I like the idea of a devoted protective lover, but the lines, "I hold you down", and, "You belonged to me" rather trouble me: is he trying to say that she was his responsibility, or that the weight of his duty on her behalf was holding her back from whatever her goals were?

Wow, I really like this one. The rhythm needs a little more work but other than that (and the fact that you spelled "believe" wrong) . . .

Good job!

This was REALLY good. I wan't to say it was actually amazing. I like it because I can relate to it. And this is my favorite part:

"Though I save you,

You push me away,

But still I won't go,

Next to you I stay."

Because I've been through it so many times, it sounds so familiar. I also like how it flows so well. Very nice write!!
