    Dear Ashley,

    thank you for their poems. I appreciate their emotional honesty and directness, and their raw, visceral response and struggle with technique. To what extent have you looked at poems that scan, but which either forego rhyme, or use it more subtly than you have now? I am very interested in how poets write, as well as what they write, since we tend to develop both in varying degrees as we develop as a poet.

    If you would like more detailed comments, I would be happy to leave messages for you. It would be a pleasure, and I would love to see more of your work.

Best Poem of Ashley Seymour

Behind The Smile

Behind the smile,
Is a girl you don’t know,
She lives a totally different life,
And you would never think so.

You see a girl,
Who’s cheery and bright,
With a positive attitude,
And a heart full of light.

People want to be her friend,
But she won’t let them in,
They can’t know her secrets,
She must hide her sins.

Blindness is challenging,
But she never gives in,
To the struggles that bind her,
You must push to win.

She didn’t want perfection,
Didn’t try to be the best,
She wasn’t the stuck up snobby girl, ...

In one month from tomorrow,
It’ll be two years,
Since your story ended,
And I cried all those tears.

The word they used was suicide,
That’s what the experts say,
I just know my life,
Was forever changed that day.
