The Truth About Forever

by ccwritingrainbow


We are happy as we are

We will get angrier with each other

*

You say that you love me

You will say that I’m worth nothing

*

We are the school’s talked about couple

We will be a part of school’s quick history

*

The truth about forever is that love will forever last

The truth about forever will be that you lied to me

Knight r4 returning for another review, ccw! I certainly hope this helps you. The title of this poem caught my eye and since you are new to YWS I thought that I would give you another review. Hey, it is even Christmas in July. Well it will be in less than three hours at any rate.

Again I noticed that you didn't have any punctuation aside from a few apostrophe's. It isn't a big deal in one sense. I even have trouble with it. And personally find it kind of annoying. However that doesn't mean it isn't important. Punctuation Rant Ends.

Okie-dokie...what else do I have to say? I liked the theme of tense changes! Good job on that end of things! The second line of the third stanza was a little confusing to me. I understand what you mean but I thought it didn't really line up with the rest of the poem.

I was also glad to see that this was a little bit longer than the first poem I tackled. (Knights of the Green Room terminology). I also like the fact that your poems actually make sense, unlike some poems I have read.

In light of the fact that I don't like romance or poetry a ton I thought that this was a good poem. Well I think that is all that I have to say aside from, HAPPY WRITING!!! :D Goes of to review another of your poems

RoyalHighness has arrived to review!
Awh wow nice last punch-in-the-face of a sentence there!
Let's begin.

Nitpicks!

Spoiler! :
We are the school’s talked about couple

I think "talked about," should be hyphenated, since it's an adjective.

And that's the only nitpick I could find.


Content
Spoiler! :
First off, great job on keeping up a consistent enjambment. Your lack of punctuation makes a bigger statement than you think; for me, it meant a lack of closure, or maybe a lack of a true ending, thus keeping with the theme of eternity.
Each stanza furthers the story of these two in their own ways. The first stanza sets the foundation, the second presents a conflict, the third takes a new perspective, and the fourth ends the story with a swift roundhouse kick to my heart. Great job on keeping the ball rolling, and keeping it short. Normally, I'm more of a fan of poems that rhyme but I honestly didn't even notice the lack of a rhyme scheme in this. I was more interested in the story than in the mechanics.
The only thing I'd work on is stronger diction. I mean, your words are great and everything but they didn't /wow/ me. I wasn't /wowed/ until the end sentence. Next time, pick stronger words. Make an impact on your reader with the words you choose.
Overall, good job!


Conclusion
So this was a really short review, but that's only because I couldn't find much to complain about! Your mechanics are flawless, but your diction is a little lacking. Overall, it was good, especially that last sentence! So I'll give you seven stars out of ten for your good poem! Keep writing!!
