    Your face is like the vague memory of a bittersweet dream.
    A dream of a life I am sure I never lived.
    So foreign, your face looks to me now
    Like a familiar stranger
    Whose name I never caught.

      Brilliant, though I agree with frost. Bittersweet dream is a tad cliche. After reading the first line, I was like, "I know this!". But otherwise a great poem. Last line ended it well. big_smile

      Here's one for you, from me:

      title: Aged Distortion

      The guitar strings pluck away at the past.
      The drum beats bring the future to the mast.
      The chants bring the flame to it all.
      The words make the buildings fall.
      And throughout the music of all of this,
      The shore of your distortion is what I really miss.

    Is this here because it is too short for tos?  It is a nice little poem, the first line of direct metaphor isn't necessary and could be shortened but the rest of it is thought provoking.

      I'm really new to hubpages, what's tos?
      And, thanks for the feedback, I am bad at proofreading my own work. I'll play with it a bit.

    Being on different levels of life is hard
    some people are so happy
    others are sadd
    some have so much
    others are so poor
    I remember them all
    and know what it means
    Memories , life it took a long time
    to comprehend that

    Adsense TOS refers to the nature of hubs that they consider mandatory to use it for adverting.  Hubpages uses those same standards give or take to judge the value of hubs in general once published.

      Thank you for that explanation, I've been curious.

      Tonks814, and Biktmia,

      Keep writing you have inner poets that want to be let out.  Mostly keep writing the content that sells.

      I remember the simple days when every piece of written work was typed up and snail mailed to the publisher.  I think this way is most handy and wonderful, but it is a lot to take in all at once.

      Cheers to you all.
