You have really beautiful language here, and it is overall a wonderful read. 1, yes, the change is visible, as well as the change in story. 2, I’m not the best with titles, but I like it. It depends on what you want the end goal to be. 3, yes, I like the rhymes. The only critique I would have is that they’re all not in the same format, but that’s a minor problem. 4, it’s melancholy, to me. There seems to be a sad vibe throughout the piece, but the end is a hopeful. 5, I like it. I think it would be better if you cut off, “yet,” at the beginning of the second repetition, in my opinion. I really hope this is helpful and isn’t offensive! Remember all my comments are just suggestions, and feel free to disregard anything I say XD. Great job! -Yaya

catharsis for truth

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

Phenomenal job! You know, I basically divide poetry into three categories: poetry I can really critique and give advice for, poetry I love but have no idea how to help, and poetry I don’t get at all. This one falls into the second category :). But I still really hope this is somewhat helpful! Best of luck in the competition!

You did amazing with this! I really like it. I think the story is beautiful and the characters feel so real even though we don’t know much about them. Great job! PS. Would you like to see it in Shakespearen? the lady wast a graveyard skeleton yond halloween (the lasteth halloween yond madeth any diff'rence) golden skin and bright eyes contrasting the costume in the dead night in the dead f'rest that gent wast smooth smiles and warmeth laught'r distracting h'r from the fact yond his visage wast only bone those gents satteth th're in the f'rest f'r hours talking about all things human life and the validity of what they’d at each moment been did teach (the long-f'rgotten ‘do not ent'r’ signeth becameth a silent companion) as didst i, i supposeth the lone obs'rv'r to their moonlit meeting confront'd by the realization yond this wast nev'r mine own st'ry at all as much as t wast theirs the golden wench and the skeleton knave at longeth lasteth as those gents hath moved onto the subject of loveth (she hath said the lady didn’t believeth in t) i back'd hence, keeping mine own footsteps quiet (he did look at h'r liketh that gent did want to changeth h'r mind) i did look up at the stars as their voices fad'd behind me and wond'r'd wh're their st'ry wouldst endeth and desired t wouldst withstandeth the coming daylight (but what a shame) the shining curves of h'r death's-head w're only visage painteth and that gent wast longeth dead
