Poetry

I Am More

Don’t look at me through eyes of ice

Don’t look at me with doubtful eyes

Don’t judge me

Because I can be

More

Than you, conceive

Don’t try to lie to me

I can perceive

More

Than you can see

Don’t judge me

Don’t doubt me

I am

More

Than what you see

I am colors of the rainbow

Ones you cannot see

O, don’t look at me with eyes of ice

O, won’t it be nice

To not be

Judged

By

You

To not be stared upon with eyes

That contains lies

You, think you are better than I am

You, think that I am

Nothing

But, I know the truth

I

AM

SOMETHING

O, I am not

Nothing

I am more than meets the

Eye

Makayla Danielle Waits: Just finished one of the most amazing books I have ever read. I connected to it in a way I can't quite put to words. It was as if this person was speaking to me, and me only. Telling me her stories and struggles and how this person handled them and how they worked or how they kept trying; but all...

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...

novicemaster: The imagery in this prose poem is glorious. I love the way you manipulate words. You seem to have harnessed them to bend to your every whim. The slightly archaic ones like "whilst" make this resemble a fairytale. The entire idea of a prose poem is brilliant. I didn't get the ending at first, but ...

Kyra Hamus: I love the realism the book had, but I felt it was missing something. Since it was a action, romance, humor, mystery book. I expected drama, but the drama that they had wasn't in the right places...for me. Still it was a awesome read, the characters had good personalities too.

preety_lady_serenity: I really liked the poem. It created this picture of a baroque style cafe that you kind of enter it to feel relaxed and yet you feel trapped due to outside circumstances.I especially loved the writing style, If one looks at it, it does look like a birdcage which is an excellent image to fit the po...

Laraine Smith: I was also a victim of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse by my father. One time, he threatened to beat me with a belt. This story enabled me to talk about it. Thank you. :)

Pamela40: This author has hit the nail on the coffin.. Their words just speak to you in so many ways on the various relationships we encounter as we journey through life. I would love to read more even a book of their poetry. This is a modern spin on Maya Angelou's boldness when she expressed herself. Ju...

Laraine Smith: My only suggestion on the grammar is to use www.grammarcheck.net. I have it bookmarked on Google Chrome. I see myself in the determination in this beautiful story! I have Cerebral Palsy, and I have dreams that I have been working hard for, too! The humor made me laugh!
