Fortunately we can guess the missing letters and discern your title, but FanStory really ought to give a little more room for titles. I loved the poem. It has so much eloquence even though written with the minimum of words needed to convey the desired meaning. You have a great way of choosing just the right word to bring to the reader's mind the images you want. I especially loved "snow comes down so politely ... covers me when I just can't... " That's really wonderful writing. This is a truly beautiful poem.

First of all I must comment on the outstanding artwork you chose -- it's a perfect match for your very thought-provoking poem. Yes, I can see it, as abstract as you might have intended, and it resonates with me in my darkest hours... "...Just another self portrait found the floor..." And those last three stanzas, Victor -- wow! Sad, but beautiful.

    My...I am a bit catatonic. Or u able to process. I would say your review embraces my thoughts during writing the poem, that...it is startling...a bit. Thank you so very much for your review. Doug

This poem, Mirror's Reflection or Refraction, seems to find the artist in a low point where everything loses its value, at least for a moment.

This is an impressive poem and very well written. I recognize those feelings.... We are not the same person of our yesterdays anymore.
That everlasting question: Who do we want to be? How do we want to be?
Life has moments our self-portraits fall apart and we have to grab all pieces together to fix it. But it will never be like it was.... Fia

I think we would all have a job trying to fit our little bits of life together in a way that makes sense. This is a really deep poem, that makes the readers think hard about their own lives. Well done. :)) Sandra xx

I enjoyed this poem, the idea of yesterdays being gone and looking back at how we once were, although I think interpretation of poetry is different for each reader. It certainly touched me. I'm fascinated by the unfinished title.

Wow! I found the lines "Just another self-portrait found the floor" a great setup for the "puzzle" without the ability to glue. Putting ourselves back together isn't as easy as wanting to. Great artwork choice for this one.

That short poem with choppy lines makes a lot of sense but not for the casual observer/reader. I read it twice and was struck by the poet's honesty, transparency and self knowledge.

    Your review pleases me greatly. And perhaps...not for the reasons one might think. You read it twice. Superb. Both, the compliment, and...the neccessity, interest, compulsion, desire...to read it again. You have embraced, without condition, "Gestalt" poetry. I thank you as abjectly as possible.
