|WOW I like the comment of Mr Bowmen - Run like hell from doom and gloom OH Well! This is not heaven yet - It takes all kinds on this earth.But Jesus wrote in the dirt -" Let the one who is without sin throw the first stone." However He said "I do not condemn you, go and sin no more" The key word here is REPENT He forgave the woman at the Well who had seven husbands but was married to none. So we must forgive; hard as it is to do. To forgive the abuser is the hardiest. But we must try. Be a little flower in God's Garden. It is not so hard to do.

|Ab-so-lutely, Regis. Misery is a troublesome and nasty thing.|

|I think this poem is about someone. I for one have met many dark deceiver's who were not female but male. The Prince of Darkness who pretended to be pure white. This is very good.

|Your writing is very much to the point of her essence, and it is well written. It may not be a good positive, but it surely represents the truth, about some people, that has to be known to others. This dark truth, I have had to face many times in my life, and I have had to write about it, too. Thanks for being the brave one and sharing this, Regis.|

|Regis, Excellent rhyming acrostic describing misery perfectly! I feel alot of emotion in every word written. Very powerful! Take care, ~Chessly|
|Reviewed by Jon Willey
|Regis, your verbalization chiseled like a sculptor the face of "Misery" that is easy to relate to. An imposing figure that we must all deal with many times throughout the course of our lives. A veiled, indiscriminate, bitch. I thoroughly enjoyed your acrostic my friend. May joy,love and peace forever make "Misery" an event obscured in the shadows of your life. Jon Michael|
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|I am at odds with Lena below me here in some of the points she raises, so it's interesting how readers respond and react to what's offered so differently, Regis. I very much like this personification which puts a very real face on an otherwise abstract term and characterises it well. I find each line punchy and strong and absolutely crystal in its delivery. Neatly encompassed at the end, too. This works for me, but I am also very respectful of others' takes, so each to his/her own. This poem has certainly sparked and inspired many thoughts and directions: like misery itself. I think that, if the poem lacks emotion, then that is often true of the state of being miserable: a numbness occurs. Well done! :)) xx|
|Reviewed by Lena Kovadlo
|This is a good poem, but it lacks emotion in my opinion and it is not a poem that leaves an impression in the end. When I read the poem the fourth line seems to ruin the flow, unless I am reading it the wrong way.
|Reviewed by Barbara Terry
|YES! I certainly agree. Misery is not only the princess of doom, though, but a spectral raven pecking at our souls crying "nevermore". I wish there was no misery, no wars, no weapons of destruction, no crime, no hate, no indifference, no bigotry. Let Misery lie in her realm and let us be happy and have gaeity in our lives. Thank you for sharing this macabre tale with an important message.
May the Lord Bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and walk by your side. With love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister Barbie.

|I sure have a lot to learn Regis, I didn't know what an 'acrostic' was till I read this one, very clever! I like the verse too, I have met a few people in my time that are the embodiment of misery, you describe them well.
Misery made me a little smarter...
Best wishes Regis,
