Liked very much this great romance poem.
A story, and a very personal story, in verse.
And you made the poetic format very effective.
It moves the story along,
Not wasting time with unnecessary words.
Well, Done!

This work has reached the exceptional level
Very unique and creative poem entry. I like the "alternative" note. Nice rhyming format. The picture took me by surprise...Best of luck with your writing piece.

    Thanks Carola,

    Yes I am the devil's advocate, spitting poisonous words wherever I go.
    Metaphorically speaking of course.

    The pic is my own work, oil pastel crayons on a piece of toast.
    When re-grilled the oils melt a bit.

    My writing piece I am sure has veered violently off the road and crashed into a tree.

    It fits not into the required format of cuddly, Snow-White-meets-Superman, romantic poetry.

    Thanks, Richard.
    PS: In 1999 learned a bit of Spanish in Madrid, and played chess in Retiro Park.

Simon and Garfunkel are favorites of mine. So this poem really appealed to me. I am amazed at how many different ways poets can interpret songs and then write their own versions to the tunes in their heads. Good luck in the contest, this is a great entry.

    Thanks.
    May do my own Boxer poem.
    The fights from my own life.

    You were a boxer? Or just got in fights? I can't imagine hitting each other on purpose...but it was a great poem!

reply by the author on 19-Jan-2019
    It's a sort of metaphorical poem. There is some dramatic emphasis. But a bust up is a bust up. Injuries are sustained. Unfortunately most of FS writers seem to have a plain-sail love life. [So cannot understand mine.] Roses strew their whole way. Have you come across them?
    There you are.
    My poem is me.

Thank you for sharing. Robert Frost once said "Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words." It would seem to me this continues to ring true. I believe "curb" is the spelling you are looking for. I also always recommend including an illustration, if for no other reason than to positively influence reviewers and contest voters.

    Thanks.
    Kerb is the English spelling.
    I thought they specifically asked for no pic.
    Must have misread it.
    Senior moment!
