I love your rhyme patterns! You have quite the skill with the rhymes! Makes me think of the fantasy and sci-fi books I have read because they almost always seem to have ruins in them. Anyway, great write!
as my friend soulraven said, what you say here rings quite true. the piece was most enigmatic, only revealing its theme in glimpses, and i find that takes a special talent. reading a couple of your pieces, i think im gonna keep my eye on you. i think you have the ability to stun with your words, so keep at it and your manifesto will come out. keep good rhymes alive says i. i hold a special place in my heart for that. keep it up. -Q
in the first stanza, it's spelled wonder. i really like the rhyme scheme in the second stanza, though. you spelled it wander again in the fourth stanza. makes a depressing cycle, though...empires crumble and are rebuilt, only to become decadent, and crumble once more. i don't quite understant your wondering....seems like you are just an observerer. a well structured and writen piece.
Venust piece, All great things must be cut off or they can never become great how can anyone know what true greatness is if they don't have anything less than great for them to judge by? So, what you say is very true all must come to an end and then rise again. It's the chronicle of life. I hope to read more of your stuff.
