    I think this is a wonderful poem. This structure is a hard one to do as you need to pack everything you want to say into such a short space. I think this is a terrifically sad story, beautifully penned.

    My only qualm would be a rather stupid one and nothing to do with the actual poem .. you have misspelled interpret. Like i said .. petty.

    Nice work.

    Wow, I love it...
    I failed in every attempt to write good Rictameter.
    Whole poem is greatly written, you picked good form and created so vivid and powerful imagery. This poem contains truly touching sadness in every line.
    Keep up!
    5/5 from me

    "She washed ashore
    Weeping for all she's seen"

    These lines reminded me of my cousin when she lost a love before. The poem overall was amazingly done! 5/5

    Never knew such a type of poems existed before. Liked it very much, maybe will try to write a similar poem sometimes. The words and rhyme are great as usual. Keep it up 5/5

    This was quite the amazing read to tell you the truth. I loved the style, attempted this one and found it enjoyable yet difficult. To interpret this it is a hard one but beautiful. To me it seems like your talking about a mermaid being washed ashore. Just a guess though. You have me interested. Let me know if it is. Overall an amazing read. Definitly well deserving of a 5/5 ~mel

    A good read for me.. i liked your wording it made it easier for me to capture the image you portray.. nice job there.. even if it required the last line to have the same syllables, i liked how you repeated the first line.. it made the word "lifeless" linger in my mind..

    "Although, weep she will, until all is still"
    Both commas throws off the flow a bit. So many people think that you should put commas in just because they're required in essays and such. But, in poetry when it's read allowed you're suppose to pause for the punctuation, not much but just a tad and then continue on reading. Well, if someone has too many commas, periods, etc. Then obviously all the pausing is going to throw off the flow a bit. I'd suggest taking the second comma out, but which ever you prefer is the way to go.

    This is a nice poem. Short but well written. You have done a wonderful job expressing the emotion which in return has given you an almost flawless flow. You worded yourself perfect and overall put the piece together quite well.
