Comments : Curse of the Raven

  • The word raven always makes me think of poe, although nothing like him. I found this piece to be just as inspirational to me, the flow and rhyme fitted perfectly. Your words consumed me with darkness but yet they glowed to me, what a brilliant piece, nominated 5/5 well done

    Congratulations on your win! This is an amazing write! So full of dark scary imagery, it does remind me a lot of Poe's work- eerie, haunting, beautifully done!

    Judges comment

    I am picky.
    If anybody watches soccer they will know that if a ref brandishes a yellow card early in the game then he has set the tone and has to be as strict for the rest of the game. I have the same issue with judging. Now I have to find something wrong before I can appreciate the 'something good'
    What has caused me to drop this from 10 to 7 points in my own mind?
    The word 'and' in stanza 6 line 4.
    It interrupts the flow.
    It isn't needed.
    I like the rhyming
    I love the detail, the sentiment and the content.
    I just can't look away from this intrusive 'and'
    That aside it is a great poem and worthy of 7 points.
