The truth in this good. But then, truth is always good, even when it hurts, perhaps especially so. I liked this. However, I do enjoy a bit of rhythm in a piece if a piece calls for it. This one didn't have that consistently in my mind. Was that the intent? Not to really have a rhythm? I would take "out" from the second line, a better flow. The second part doesn't quite seem to fit together when I read aloud. I'd reduce syllables. For instance, I'd remove "colored" and replace with "hue" I would remove "character" altogether. Also, one part puzzled me: "Reflected are the things I cannot see/the things under here that are truly me" If you cannot see them...how do you know they are truly you? I got the bubbling oil of this write so I liked it. There is a burning in it.
Honest, fun, humorous, and short. all my favorite things in a poem. granted i tend to like poems most people hate lol. i did enjoy reading this one, i hope you write more like it. im not very good at critique, but im sure some one else will.
