Brilliant Liam! This one turned out a lot better than mine did :) I find diamond poetry to be very intriguing and thought provoking, as you are given so little to work with. Thanks for giving it a shot! This was definitely a home run!
Thank you! Are you kidding, your was fantastic! Tsk tsk, you shouldn't put yourself down like that! I really enjoy this poetry style too, because I can work on synonyms and antonyms and a bigger word choice! Thanks for reading!
This is really good! I'm usually not a big fan of diamond poetry, but this one is quite good. Your choice of words is just flawless here if you ask me. I may not be the best to tell you about your poems since I have never been very good at writing them myself, but I think you did a fabulous job here!
I have to say diamond poetry is just sort of like that with limitations and shortness, but you could be able to expand it. It's comforting to know you like my poetry so much! Thank you for reading!
This is really brilliant; I love writing poems as well, but would never be able to pull diamond poetry off. Well done.
Thank you! Diamond poetry is actually really simple! It's just describing two different things, essentially!
Wow! This is super, Liam! I like how the words at the beginning, the negative emotions, fade into the positive emotions in the lower half of the 'diamond'. Indeed, this poem does look like a diamond! Very well written. Maybe I'll make a diamond poem sometime! Thanks so much for sharing, Liam:) Happy new years!:)
You should write a diamond poem! They're very simple and you would be very good at them! Thanks for commenting as always!
I like this. Granted I like most of your work. Well, well done. This is a beautiful medley of words.
Thank you! I like that you call it a medley! -Liam
Awesome. Definitely better than what I could do!
You could do one, you just have to try!
I've never heard of this kind of poetry before. It's quite unique. I love the contrast of the negativity displayed in the upper section of the diamond then swriling down to the bottom half where it blossoms with brightness and positivity. It's kind of like a withered flower being brought back to life by some sort of magical being. Well done, Liam!
You described it so well! You should try one, it's really easy! You can write one with any topic too! Thanks for reading!
