Reviews for Grey
dark-fire-rebel chapter 1 . 3/11/2015
A short but very beautiful poem! I like the feeling of angst transmitted. Your constant reference back to the color grey gives a constant reminder of uncertainty in the mind of the narrator. I believe your repetition is very well used there!
I love the poem, and I believe it has no mistakes. The structure, the subtle rhyming, and the repetition is very cleverly used. Overall, a very good job!

Nice poem. I like the imagery you put into it, and the fact that you transitioned being in a comforting place with nothing to fear, to the feeling of being trapped in it. Well done.

I think you did a good job at utilizing a very subtle rhyming scheme, which I think works best for the piece, because in a lot of ways it’s a free write and less structured. If you had been more intense with the rhyme then I think it may put the reader off.

I both like and dislike the repetition of ‘grey’ on the one hand it’s a powerful word by itself, but on the other I feel like overuse makes it lose that power. Maybe try and use other words that can also show a feeling of “greyness” or a feeling of being lost in a void which is what I think you were trying to express. Keep up the good work.

Much love,
