Scene -
she enters the
fairground of manipulation,
clutching pity like a prize to her side.
A little white lie never bruised
her multicoloured mask,
so why should she halt the ride?

She molds appreciation from
sympathy dough - a masterpiece.
Her own Statue of David
brought into spotlight
by the regret of the touring
customers at the show.

She watches their inert
expressions, as she guides their
boat, and opinions,
squeezing every ounce of air
and emotion.
But, as they call the feat to cease,
they must stand corrected.

She owns the grounds.

    [[I loved this line. How true it stands!]]

    Your writing baffles me. I'm usually very strict and critizing, but I find nothing to improve; just keep writing. You're words are amazing.
    I would be interested to see you write in a structed form [though most rhyme].. So, if you attempt one, find me, I'd love to see what you can come up with.
    Your pieces are brilliant and well thought out; you have the mind of a god for poetry.
    Keep it up; I'll certainly be checking up on you. Keep me interested, and thank you for sharing.

    Wow. That was brilliant! It seemed to me as a very intense poem. Very unique, and marvelous. I love your writing so far. It's this whole new level. I feel unworthy. HAHA.

    I really like this poem. i expecially how you like played it out. how you took something so real and made it understandable and made more understandable. if you know why im trying to say.. anywhoo great job. and in my poem how i put the "&&" in it. i just did that because i like the way it looks. your not literally supposed to say and and. your supposed to just say it once. lol thanks for the CC :D
