Identity Crisis

Keep Away from Your concave mirror Streaky, glassy identity Faceless ©Drake J. Eszes
My 1st attempt in this form. I hope you all like. I read a description on what a Cinquain consists of from my dear pal, Nette Onclaud, on this form. I felt, why the hell not? So, I dabbled..."

    I can relate to this poem for sure! Very nicely done, Drake. Short and sweet! You might like my poems titled, "The Real Me" and "Fading Away To Nothing". By the way, thanks so much for the comments on my poem "And Nothing Else Matters". I was listening to that Metallica song, the night I wrote it, and that poem just flowed from me! Glad you enjoyed it, and nice to meet you too!

    I love shorter poems--it forces people to be concise, and picky about the words they use. I love it!

    Hi & thank you, Rachel. I certainly agree with you there. :) I'm glad you stopped by!

    This is good - a few words can say a lot. I thought I was going to read something about Identity teft. I don't know anything about cinquain, so I don't try it. Thanks for sharing...... Lucilla

    Eszes Avatar Drake Eszes Date: 8/2/2013 7:13:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    The only reason I tried this is because Nette presented the how-to format of it so clearly. So, I thought, "why not"? Thank you very much for stopping by here, Lucilla!

    Hi Drake-- I like the topic-- Cinquain hey ! Well, you will have to educate me once again. Nice and concise form of poetry, but I can see it looks easier than it is. I have writers block -- hence nothing new from this end!

    Eszes Avatar Drake Eszes Date: 7/31/2013 7:33:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Hey Kim!!! =D I'm VERY ready for something new from you. Write about writer's block! All the cool poets are doing it! =) Thank you so much, Kim! And, yes, it only looks easier...

    Ooh I can see so many possible metaphors in this little beauty. For me (as a woman), I see the concave mirror as society's expectations - the way it completely distorts our views of reality, and of ourselves. Love!!

    Eszes Avatar Drake Eszes Date: 7/29/2013 2:09:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Hi, Heather! =D That would be a wonderful way to look at that mirror. Good call on that. Thank you so much!!!!!!
