Dim and dark
on sunken wings
the melting glow
of tears on skin
and dint of pressure
grasping spare
and turning raw
those gaping eyes
stinging the sight
of what is right in front of us.

I loved that you used such forceful and intense words that you created a vivid picture. I loved the line "on sunken wing". Good job.

hey your poem is exquiste it captures the saddness the painful realease yet it also shows the happiness or joy caused by the realease it gives you.

well done it is difficult to get so many feelings into such a short poem

It seems that you're an underwriter, and although your vocabu;ary is beautiful. I think it would be awesome if you rewrote this and use small moments, try writing more. Overall, very powerful and deep. I enjoyed!

Yor poem is great. although there are not many words it has alot of emotion. I've been through many difficult times in my life and i still cry constantly. thats why i turned to poetry.
