Beauty Around The Beasts - Poem by daniel wentz

the glint in your smile
will have me speeding for miles
the twinkle in your eye
will take me on a high rise
your my motivation
no need for contemplating
so disregard all them people hating
your beautiful in my line of sight
no need for fright
you will never see a lonely night

    a valiant effort at rhyming and a love poem. some may love it, or say so. i tend to be picky, AND i tend to try to HELP with suggestions, if i feel there are some to be made. you may, of course, delete my comment if you don't like it here. i plan to copy and paste it into a message to you also.

    I DO THINK IT IS A NICE LOVE POEM. it is just that i can't enjoy it much when i see what i consider problems in construction and feel the need to point them out to you and others.

    here are some 'suggestions' and 'comments', interjected.


    Beauty Around The Beasts [[a catchy title]]

    the glint in your smile [[reflection off of teeth or lip gloss or licked-lips? ]]

    will have me speeding for miles [[will have me speeding a mile OR....me winning the mile ETC..... this gives smile/mile, rather than smile/mileS, which at least i enjoy better]]

    the twinkle in your eye [[caused by 'you'? ? ]]

    will take me on a high rise [[will take me on a rise, HIGH.......gives you eye/high instead of eye/rise AND emphasizes high]]

    [[switch the order of the next three lines and STILL you will have the nice rhyme contemplating /hating; it will just be separated by one line, but it helps to include the motivation-line i think]] [[oh yeah. YOU'RE is the contraction for you are; i suggest using it, instead of the INcorrect your, which indicates possession/ownership]]

    your my motivation
    no need for contemplating
    so disregard all them people hating

    [[no need for contemplating
    you're [[OR you are]] my motivation
    so disregard all them people hating ...................[[i know lots of people would say them, but an english teacher may tell you Use those (or the) young man! ]]


    your [[you're]] beautiful in my line of [[i think it would sound better and make more sense to take out my line of]]sight
    no need for fright [[how about you've no need for fright? ....it makes the rhyming lines more equal in length and clarifies WHO has no need for fright]] [[AND add, and at the end of the line to lengthen it and tie it in better with the last line? ]]
    you will [[perhaps use the contraction here, you'll, to tighten up the line? ]] never see a lonely night

    [[so, IF YOU TAKE MY SUGGESTIONS, the poem would read:

    the glint in your smile
    will have me winning the mile.
    the twinkle in your eye
    will take me on a rise, HIGH
    no need for contemplating
    you're my motivation
    so disregard all them people hating
    you're beautiful in my sight
    you've no need for fright, and
    you'll never see a lonely night

    if it were my poem, which i KNOW it is NOT, i would capitalize each sentence's first letter [[or capitalize first letter of each line (most poets seem to do that; i usually don't, unless each line is a new sentence) ]] AND use punctuation. BUT this is not an essay site and poets get some leeway....poetic license. i don't capitalize a lot in emails or in my PH comments or messages 'cause i'm lazy and it is not going to be graded by my 10th grade english teacher! i would also break the poem into three stanzas with four lines, then three lines, and, lastly, three lines.
    thanks for sharing. :) bri
