Rommel-I do like your work so much. The imagery and metaphore is excellent. Jane

wow, I love the part about getting bruised from being painted.

Metaphors are extremely 'alive' so much that one can 'see' it more than read and interpret.The 'visuals' are distinct and so appropriate that the SCENE presents it self as a first hand experience. You are a Poet Rommel, a gifted one. A natural poet, I suppose.

Me thinks the canvas needs to reject its painter.
Very vivid, moved me to the point that I got pretty bothered at the person who was doing this to the speaker and had to remind myself it is a poem. (In other words, I like it)

"cast of calloused cares " good phrase, evocative and points to the main message. The metaphor (or not) of painting also works. Nicely done.

I really like the premise revolving around this piece. I would like to see more, or at least closure. Great stuff, Rommel.

yes, i agree with alaina- everything in this poem is so full, so ambitious, so beautiful- but that last stanza certainly does leave something to be desired. You paint everything so perfectly, and then the last 4 lines kinda fall off. perhaps make them a bit longer. i'm still giving this perfect marks; the rest of it is just so powerful and intense. wonderful wonderful job.

Just read your poem, it's very good, so emotional. Love can be a pain at, & ya get hurt.
Then ya get over it, life goes on. Find a better love, that will treat ya right. I wouldn't change a thing. Peace & Joy, Jean

I can so relate to these words ... I have even tried to paint them out of me ... I found that walking away and painting a new life brought back painless rainbows ... love this poem ... excellent work!
