the only thing i do not like about this poem, is the last sentence. It doesnt give the poem enough finality. Its almost as if you are opening up to a new idea. Besides that, the rhythm is pretty intact, it flows nicely.

Well done.

Oh my. Chilling.. but... I don't know. I feel strage when I read this poem. But it's very good, I must say. Actually, it's better than very good. It's great.

"Her soul turned inside-out one day."

That is awesome. It's my favourite line, and it suits it to be the finishing line to a fantastic poem. Keep writing.

I like it. Whispers of Emily Dickinson. Pretty and thoughtful.

I like the impersonal detachment, ie "my father's mom." Calling her something like "grandmother" would somehow have detracted from the feeling of the poem. I LOVE the last line.

Very Emily Dickinson. "Her soul turned inside-out one day." Awesome.

O... chilling. The rhyming adds sort of an ironic cheerfullness. I get the deep sadness though. Call me crazy, but it almost makes me think that maybe when your grandma died (if this is true) you were tryin that false cheerfullness, trying not to seem so upset, but really you were desvastated. I love poetry like that. It gives such insight into a person. If that's ^^ not true then I guess I'm just pyscho...:)

Interesting, I must ponder a bit.

This is quite good, despite the rhyme scheme that I don't normally enjoy. Anyway, well done. Give yourself a pat on the back; most of my reviews are terrible and/or rude.
