So beautifully dramatic yet poignantly sad, this is a very touching and well written poem. I can only hope that it is based on the writer's imagination, rather than experience.
The illustration, the colors, the rhymes, the meter and the very descriptive words all convey the struggle of a woman overcoming betrayal. Very well written and presented!
I miss you, my friend, and hope you and your family are well -- lifting you in prayer!

I so much appreciated the empowerment that came after all the pain!
I loved how you structured the content:
1,Painful goodbye
2, The real betrayal - 'pursuing a friend' - so wrong!
3,Then, the first steps of emotional recovery: (air out sadness, not hating, and the real turning point:'Broken promises will not seal my fate'.
4,And the final stanza is all about empowerment.

Also, I appreciate the strict 10 syllable lines, and rhymes!
Thank you for sharing!

This work has reached the exceptional level
pharp: go girl, be strong in the Lord, and fight that battle.
He's not worth it making you feel blue and dating your friend.
You are beautiful and strong. Great rhymes for the contest.
Extra stars for the pain and your strength. flylikeaneagle *******

I'm so blue and hate it's coming through the thorn of a rose...this is the way I see your poem and I know the theme was not an easy one. Your poem brings up theme such as hate, betrayal, ignorance and pain. Thank you for sharing and good luck with the contest.

Portia,
I enjoyed reading your poem. It has strength
and character. The Blue Rose fits your poems story
well.
Your rhyming is balanced and keeps a gentle flow.
By not wanting revenge or hate towards the guilty
one, you show perseverance and the will to
move on to better days. Joy and Peace!
Your brother in Christ,
Richie b
P.S. If I had a 6 star, I would give it to you.

Your presentation is awesome, Portia. The image is beautiful against the black background and the color scheme sets off the words well. Your lines flow smoothly with good rhymes and great imagery. I could see and feel everything as I read this. I like the ending where it is positive and the individual has a new found strength. Thanks for sharing.
Respectfully, Jan

You captured the deep feelings of rejection and abandonment with this sensitive piece. The words flowed naturally and the artwork was perfectly highlighted. Well done!

Dear Portia, This is a beautiful poem, beautifully presented. The Blue text on Black background most effective.
What I most admired about this poem was the stated resolve that you were not going to be a victim of this man's deceit, that made this poem so excellent.

Hi Portia.. I loved this poem. It's not only beautifully written but it also shows how strong you are after being treated so very badly. A woman right after my head. A wonderful poem and good luck in the contest. Ulla:)))
