Comments : Altered Photographs

  • 6 years ago

    You hang me -as standing
    still poser- in a gallery of
    altered photographs.
    -I love how you ended this with it.

    Reading this poem, made me think of those killers who take pictures of the people they kill, making it into photobooks.

    I love this poem!
    You can see it as you were reading it, and it made you want to see the end of the poem

    great job :)

    Woah I love this! I can see why you posted this under dark poems. There is that eerie feeling I got while reading this poem. The images themselves were dark but the feelings as well just freaked me out.

    The first stanza I immediately think of some kind of sicko perverted man who has taken pictures of you to fulfil his own fantasy. The idea that he has taken the photo of you and using it for his own sickness alters the photo. It takes away the true person you are, the sunny part instantly and the photo turns to darkness because of who has taken it.

    I love the poem, the vivid description the uniqueness of it. Awesome write hun!!!

    This poem is really unique and I was pulled in straight away. I liked the atmosphere of the piece and the creepy vibe of the poem. There are some sick people out there and this piece captures that.

    I really loved this poem, dark, open and honest kind of "laid out bare" the imagery was fantastic and the ending was just perfect, loved it! :-) x

    OMG THIS IS SO UNIQUE! I LOVE THIS IDEA! Im so jealous I didn't think of it!!

    Seriously I loved that you took words that we do with photographs (crop, edit, effect) and used them in a different sense to describe what its like when a person tries to change you....dear God that is brilliant!

    Very very well done!!
