As poets we write about those emotions that effect us deeply in the hope that someone identifies with the same emotions and this realisation often means they no longer feel alone, the poet brings the community together and heals the people, this is what you did here by sharing your thoughts, much enjoyed, love Dolly x

Wow. "Die not the poet in me. Die not"
This is an excellent entry to the free verse contest.
I love the repeated line in any free verse and find it a great way to organize one. I do it often myself.
You have some beautiful lines here...
Your ending mention about Rumplestiltskin is my favorite.
Best wishes to you in the contest.
Cheers

Very nicely done. After reading your author's notes, I had a better understanding of what you were getting at. I saw a couple of places where there was a rhyme. I like rhyme.

Aaqib, I know that poet in you lives. Don't you dare let it die. You are young enough and talented enough that all your dreams can and will come true. I'm glad you are entering this free verse contest, and I hope you win. Your poem is excellent. You should be putting things on this site every day. You'll have plenty of encouragement and you can stop being your only cheerleader.

This is an excellent piece of advice for anyone that finds a means of release-in writing, music, etc. Writing is therapy for me. I quit writing for years and just picked it back up last year. It's helping me become happier and whole.
Your author notes are perfect.

I love the whole thing, but these lines really stood out to me:
Gloomy are the days, darkened by the clouds of fate
Darker still are the nights in their ominous embrace
