Excellent writing. I looked at your profile picture and now I know where I have seen you before. Every teen slasher movie ever made.

    Now were you looking at the guy on the left, or the guy on the right? One of them's a serial killer for sure.

    Thanks for the fun review.

kiwisteveh, congratulations on your win. An exceptional poem. To me it speaks of the great empire of false religion including Christendom. I do believe the Scriptures use the great harlot as the personification of such deceived greatness, A wonderful work. Jimi

    Thanks, Jimi. Yes, religion has a lot to answer for. Who was it who said 'The only religion I practise is kindness'?

Petty Temples
Let's be honest about it, I wouldn't know a villanelle from a cheeseboard, so it isn't as though you'll get a in-depth analysis of form and what-have-you from this review.

I can, however, tell you I loved it. 'I am Storm' full of strength and power, maybe the storm here is secularism? 'Tear down your petty temples raised to fear', emphatic repetition, here.

There's a commandment like quality to this. 'Strip off the mask,' etc. Thou shalt do away with all the 'baubles'?

A unusual and refreshing take on the faith theme. congratulations on your well - deserved win.

    Thanks, Emma. I've won the Faith contest twice now - bith times with poems that actually question faith. Not sure what that tells us!

I wasn't expecting that murder twist at the end of his -beloved Juliet. Great story in a poem Steve, and love the double rhymes in the first and third lines, works really well. Good luck in the contest, loved it.
cheers,

    Pearl, thanks for the great review and the six shiny stars.

    This one was from a couple of years ago, but I've revived it and put it in my 'book.' The rhyme and stanza structure is borrowed from Poe's 'The Raven'. As I recall, it came second in the contest...

A poem that could be from Poe...It has aspects of criminology...the macabre..tortured love...psychological nuance
and distortion..all wrapped within a difficult structure.

    Thanks, Nika. You can blame Poe for the structure - I was trying to emulate the rhyme and stanza pattern of The Raven

    This one was from a couple of years, but I've revived it and put it in my 'book.'

This is amazingly well done! A new version of Romeo & Juliet. The rhyming flows beautifully and I never felt you chose a word simply for the rhyme. I enjoyed everything about this poem, the words you chose were spot on.

This is a wonderfully entertaining love story/murder mystery that plays a bit with the original doomed lovers, Romeo and Juliet. The story line is entertaining with its tongue-in-cheek tone and the unfaltering rhyme and rhythm. The imagery gives the reader great mental pictures to supplement the narrative. This was a fun read.

Juliet
What a brilliantly sad and poignantly posthumous poetic story, about a girl whom our hero had possibly met under the haze of a drug or alcohol induced fog. But the clever use of internal rhyme, and story-like narrative was wonderfully woven and some alliteration, rendered it a classic, well done Steve, blessings, Roy
