    Kim is a very good poet who has emotion coming out of her ears. To those like poetry hound who say her poems aren't good well they can take a hike. SHE ROCKS! ! ! . I hope you keep the poems flowing.

    Your biggest fan,
    Matthew Hyatt

    POEM: Wonder-Kim McInnis

    Remember me (you probably don't want to) ? Reading your last few poems I have put you on my 'To Watch' list. You are writing some lovely stuff and I am looking for an eraser to go back and wipe some (of my) early comments. And those were so near your birthday.
    I still think that you might want to use a smidgen more patience as I get the impression that you are purring along very nicely and then the revv's die down.
    But great promise, in my amateur opinion.

    I posted this under your poem Wonder, thought you might miss it.

    I was told much the same thing when I was young, long ago. Well, so what? Age almost always rages at youth. And talent in youth is much rarer than in adults, keep writing. Do it for yourself.

    To my great surprise, while deciding whether to comment here and spoil your day, I find another comment aalready here.
    You are NO poet. You may have a little talent, now and then things look so so and a smidgen more promising but overall you are cluttering up the site with plain dumb junk. As the previous correspondent notes, there is no effort put into these creations (or little) and there is nothing that even smells of originality.
    Yet you churn them out like an over-confident up herself wannabe poet.
    Perhaps you should find a different hobby as I don't think the kind suggestions of poetryhound will save the day.
    Read Witkovski (on this site and perhaps you'll get a laugh out of another one totally without talent.

    Sorry Kimberly but I just don't think this stuff is very good. You have a lot of emotion, which is good, but your poems are not original and you don't seem to have put much effort into crafting them. I think you should read a lot of poetry by established poets, find some that you like, get to understand why they are recognized as being great, and let them influence you. My two cents.

Best Poem of Kim McInnis

From A Pond

I’ve been holding your hand for far too long now
- your palm is hot as a swamp
- your thick fingers turn my knuckles white

I can’t run so fast or far
And there’s not enough water for me here

There were days when you carried me everywhere
- brushed my hair
- rubbed lotion on my scars
And there were no monsters
- hiding under the bed

I watched a daisy bloom with you
I walked along the beach with you

But I kept counting candles
And I grew too tall for your shadow
And I learned
- you’re just a man
- and you too can lie

I can’t...

Read the full of From A Pond


now that the storm is over
I can't help but wonder
where I should turn
I look to my wrist
and see your charm
I can't help but wonder
maybe one of them
should be wearing it instead
now that the storm is over
now that you don't need me...

you're calling my name
but I don't believe you
