    My screams fill the biting cold air,
    For I do not know if I can ever bear,
    This tragedy that has suddenly arrived,
    Before my scared and petrified eyes.
    `Biting -- it's an awkward word to use within that first line and just sounds like a nuisance rather than a powerful word that emphasizes the coldness of the air. Maybe change that word to one similar? I love the last lines of that stanza though.

    I stay with him till help finally comes,
    And by then I am completely numb,
    With coldness, dread, and tons of fear,
    As I silently start to cry some tears.
    `Work on syllabication in this verse. I can see what you're saying, but the words used here are quite common, and it just breaks the flow of the piece.

    I feel like the ending is weak. There's so much emotion that I can see that you're trying to express -- but it just feels empty. It wasn't the best, but it wasn't half bad.

    Your decsriptions and imgery were outstanding. And I really liked the wayy you started out this piece. [The beginning was very alluring and attention grabbing] :] The flow was flawless and this piece was just amazing. :] 5/5.

    sorry. I'm late for work. so I'll get to a second poem after work. Kay. :]

    I loved how you opened this piece because it instantly captured my attention where I was hooked wanting more! You truly used the right words to create the imagery you desired. The flow was just flawless where nothing seemed forced and everything was a joy to read. The pain you described was easy for me to imagine because I could feel the words you expressed came straight from your heart. Well done *5/5*

    Pretty good. Awesome word choice and emotions. I also love the storyline. <3 It doesn't feel like it flows very well to me though. Maybe check the meter and eliminate a few words. Other than that very good. I'll give a 4/5

    Congrats on taking third with this poem. :) Poems like this make contests worth while.


    In the first line, 'bitter' may sound slightly better than 'biting'. I know it's more commonly used, but trying to put uncomon words sometimes doesn't work in all cases.

    As for the rest of the poem, it's so sad, yet it's so true. I loved it. A few minor alterations to make the flow stand out a bit more is all i would say is needed. :)

    You try to tell a story yet leave the reader wondering what it is about. It seems to be a good story, so tell it all. Be aware of your rhyme and/or rhythm as these two things control the entire piece.
