short and sweet.

Firstly, I love the word splatter. It's such a fun word.

I actually love that this poem is so short. I think that makes it impact all the more.

The emotions behind it are really strong. It's sort of self conscious and hopeful and really shows depth even with it being so short.

Lovely piece!

Alexander Emberson chapter 1 . 2/14/2011

She splatters her true colors across a canvas,

In hope that anyone will see them,

And love her anyway.

I believe you've captured the desire to be accepted in these few short lines. There is so many ways to look at this piece though, and I like that because I see one meaning, but can instantly see another. It's a somber piece that invokes deep emotion in someone. Nicely done.

Loved the whole thing, amazingly connected... This really rings true for me.

i like the tie between "anyone" and "anyway".
Fractured Illusion chapter 1 . 2/4/2011
It is very short but I liked it anyway, I think it said what it was supposed to but still in a poetic way.

I also liked the message sort of - being love despite of who/what you are. It's not something I regularly encounter.

Well done!

Wow. After flaming a crapload of really bad poetry I was very happy to stumble on yours. It's very good. Just the perfect length. You don't try to make out the thought to be more than what it is.

I love poems like these. You give the reader just enough of an idea, but leave them to their own imagination. I also love the way you worded it.

Once again, great job. It makes me insanely happy that not everyone who writes poetry here is completely talentless.

Awesome, short and sweet, and also inspiration for me.

I am usually not a fan of short poems (I hate haikus), or poems that don't rhyme, but this really impressed me. You have a talent to put very much meaning into just few simple words.

I loved the line "She splatters her true colors across a canvas". It really shows how artists express their thoughts and emotions through their work. The last two lines, in my interpretation, imply that what the artist creates won't necessarily be beautiful, but he/she hopes that others will accept the work as it is, knowing that the creator of the work has poured their soul into it.

Wow, I'd never have expected such a long review for a poem of only forty words. Oh well. Keep going.
