A poem
When I Am Gone
PoeticXscape
Your poem is well worth reading with excl lent rhyming Britten by
a not a greatly educated man but I know well enough.
The struggles of human life and the healing of its love.

It is a wondrous thing when others appreciate and want to preserve a poet's work. Part of us stays behind when we have written down the things residing in our hearts. I enjoyed reading this very much.

Amazing how and what we think about before departing this world when nothing matters of worth. Where we spend eternity is all that matters. I was thinking about the first poet doing O'Pioneer and his thoughts.

Very lovely PoeticXscape, I enjoyed this very much. I especially like your last verse, "I was not born to enjoy the pleasures you endure, My emotions overwhelm me furthermore" well done.

Yes, this has great potential! The title is plain but it tells the beginning of the poetic story.
I love what you have to say and the descriptions are very good.
I feel that the rhythm is shakey in a few of the parts toward the end.
Sometimes, like the very last line, the words go on too long.
I hope you don't mind my honesty it is what I believe you want to hear.
Have a great afternoon,
Jesse

Hello Poeticxscape,
This is an excellent poem that reads like free verse,
even though it is nicely rhymed in the aabb scheme.
The theme of one's life and soul embedded
in the lines of their poems is one all poets can relate to.
Well done.
Best wishes.
Robert

You obviously have a great knack for rhyming and I very much enjoyed the creative end-rhymes here. I also liked how your last stanza circled back to the first one, making the poem feel complete. Your theme is lovely as well. I think the poem could flow a little more smoothly if you had embraced a consistent meter, but the message comes through clearly anyway. Thanks for sharing this thought-provoking piece. MM
