While reading this, I half-heard a voice in my head, singing the words. I suppose it must've been the lady that the poem speaks of, because it seemed to be a feminine voice, soft and husky. It was lyrical and tinged with sorrow, rather like the poem itself was, at least in my opinion.

I also very much enjoyed the lines "A flower in a barren field / An island amidst the sea", as they felt rather personal. That part of the poem really was close to my heart.

Thank you.

Wow..I was never much of a poetry person, but this definitely blows me away. I really enjoyed reading it, it definitely has a lot of depth to it...and well..maybe I'll look at poetry in a different light, from now on!

I can really relate...I don't know how, which is really weird, but there's just something about it. It was very good and I applaud (i think i spelt that wrong, lol) you for it. *claps*!

I like this poem! If it wasn't rediculously late, I would try to understand what it is actually saying, but I get the gist. :D I like that you seperated the stanzas with lines, it definitely helps the readability. You have a very unique voice that comes out in this poem, and it's refreshing.

Good job! :D

Because she leaves the drama at the opera

And the grief to the funeral home

Brings a little peace or hope to both

When nothing’s set in stone

And you’ll love her, I tell you,

Love her

amazingly beautiful. she sounds like one swanky lady. a flower in a barren land/ an island amidst the sea - wonderful descriptions of this lady. it's amazing how a poet can create what seems to be a personal peice and it touches us. it's different in a unique way, but it doesn't estrange the reader which can be very difficult to achieve.

a wonderful write and a definate favorite.

I liked the poem, it was different; different in a good way of course. The structure of the poem seems to be something that you made up. Im not really sure, I just havent come across one like this before.

Im not going to critique "Opera" I don't much experience in the way of poems except for my own. I know what I like though and I also know poets, well most of them anyway, like to have their poems recognized. So here is me saying: "I enjoyed your poem and I hope you put up another one someday"

ps. especially like the third stanza!

Wow, that was excellent. The "her" in here is a really good character, and that she doesn't have a name is even better, it gives her... mystery.
