A Face

A Face

A Poem by Kiera Scanlon

A Face with such saddened eyes,

A face which his heart defies

A face that won’t age or grow,

A face that I will always know

A face that’s always on my mind,
A face I’ve seen a million times,

A face that suddenly had to go,

And on my face the tears now flow.

Another one about loosing your dad?
Seems like it.
It again, is heartbreaking, and sad.
Full of emotion to.
Your rhyming is great.

You've done an excellent job describing the pain of loss and losing someone you were close to, which I believe is something all of us as human beings have gone through at one point or another. It makes us stronger, you know? Anyway, great job on this. It's really short, but it says a lot.

This really touches me. The pain of loss really comes through, and isn't it something we can all relate to? Wonderful!

WOW! Simple yet convectional.
My favorite lines were-
(A face that I will always know
A face that’s always on my mind,
A face I’ve seen a million times,)
Great theme.💚

a stunning and simple piece....i could really relate to it since my grandfather just passed away to his heavenly abode....and it was his face that revolved through my mind as i read the poem....we experience so much pain and sadness and hurt...but in the end all we remember are those faces who caused them or took them away.

There was so many different thoughts that ran through my busy mind when I read this. I don't know what interpretation you had for it but I will share what I gathered from this. First, two people (maybe teenagers) are in love and one of them is so mentally miserable that they have to end their life. "A face that suddenly had to go,
And on my face the tears now flow."
Second, they were both in love and the girl fell out of love with the boy. Either she found someone better or didn't have any interest in him anymore. She moved on. She hated to leave but then again she felt empty inside when she was with him. Those are my interpretations. They might be way off but this my perceptions of this wonderful poem. You leave so much for the audience to want to know. It is short but enough to catch the attention of the reader. Awesome job!

A simple yet inspiring piece that captures loss and heartache in a few words. Anything more would take away from it. You have a beautiful way with words that touch the heart. Another well done piece. Me thinks I love your writing. :o)
