this is one of my pieces that has been recently written... and i decided to post it... sorry i have been gone for such a while.

Explore the truth

I shall embellish you
with colors of the world.
Perplexed upon everything
compassion is the key.

Sorrow oh sweet sorrows
is nothing more than
rolling in pity of tears.

forget the lies
of all that is swept upon
and with this red rose
it shall be the beginning
to all the can be explored.

Slumber into the pure bliss
of acknowledgement
because as I help you
to your feet
we shall journey into your
inner beauty.

  I have to agree with death22881 on that this piece could be expanded and refined. You were able to create good imagery with this piece, but I think that there can be more. It seems like because of the emotion and imagery, the poem is too short. I think that it would rock if you hit the emotion and imagery hard. Play with it, bring it out. Bring out the "compassion" you speak of in the first stanza. The second stanza doesn't do justice to the emotion of pity and sorrow that you're trying to convey. I hope that I don't sound like an ass, but after reading this piece, it didn't feel like you put all of your emotion into it. I haven't read any of your other poems yet, but after reading a good number on this poetry forum, you start to get the feeling about which pieces had the authors heart and soul wrapped within the words. I felt like this piece was missing part of that.

But besides that, I think that you have a good start.

  Not a bad write that one, i like it very subtle and soft neither over powering nor understated. Just right. Its pace is rather nice and enjoyable, the wording of this poem is powerful and descriptive giving good imagary.

I think that this poem is a good first draft and could be expanded and refined.
