So So. But it was still good. But I couldn't get into the feel of it. Fill it with myself to really get emotionally into it like I would have liked. In my opinion 'flirt' is a just dandy word for the situation. Although I'm not much into poems, this one was not bad at all.

Nice new name...Snake...O.o anyway, moving onwards...you'll have to let me in on the beat for the lyrics, I love music. You know what? I'd like to see something by you with new lyrics to go with Rob Zombie's Dragula - or might that b e difficult? I don't know, it's all good. Cheers.

Roger that...Thanks. I Don't want to be a spammer.

That's what poetry's about man...love and pain.

There's a saying, "Poetry's story is love and pain and each to his own is often the same"

Now, I hope you don't think I was picking apart your inner pathos. This was a good piece.

Okay, Jon M, these is a song lyrics thing, not poem, I don't know much about poetry, but I do have other poems under the name Alpha Lance.

But this came to me all at once at first, then I got on word doc. and edited and made it better, changing the words up more, trying to make it rhyme and all.

Plus, this song is personal too, has to do with my life in a way. Lot of my work deals with my life in a way, like Broken Promise one I made last year.

Anyways, thanks for the comment, and I'll check your work out. But please don't go around asking people to read your stuff. It's called spamming. Anyways, thanks.

I didn't realize it was a poem, or I would've just read it and commented first...sorry.

Poems are so much harder to write than anyone thinks, but this one has soemthing. I have a question. Did this come out of your head all at once or, did it take a while to piece it together?

The reason it matters is that poetry (this piece included) is inspired, and this appears to have poured out all at once. Nice Job.

Okay, on with the criticism. (I mean it with love my friend)

I don't like the word "flirt" in the lines about flirting with suicide. Flirt is a flippant and flighty word. It implies silly irresponsibility, and lightness, and unless you were setting up that kind of a juxtaposition (and the rest of the piece is too heavy for me to believe that) there's got to be a better word for what his relationship with suicide. As I play with suicide, dance with suicide, live with suicide (nice juxtaposition there) drive with suicide, dine with suicide, sleep with suicide, learn with suicide... you get the idea.

Avoid all cliches in both prose and peotry. "As I bottle my pain inside" is a cliche. There have got be other creative ways you can say he's holding back.

Also too, I'd like to see some more metaphors. (Unless this is song lyrics..in which case it's usually all good)

For example, the last stanza. You mention God twice by name. How may metaphors are there for God? Six billion? After the first reference to God you might say something about the cross, the crown of thorns, the bloody lamb, the bloody palms, the cup of blood, the burning heart (assuming you were referring to a christian God..if not find other metaphors)

Keep it up. I was surprised to see a poem here. It's a welcome change.
