    Good morning Viola. I just read your poem, interesting and thought provoking, sounds like a romance poem of some sort. Well done written in the words on the skin. Loyd MY latest post is Morning Murders. Have a great day! (Report) Reply

    A tattoo is mostly a symbol of nativity. I don't know whether the poet//poetess is a native or a descendant of immigrants. The poem needs a foot note. Technically it's a good poem full of emotions and determinations. (Report) Reply

    The way this poem is composed makes me wonder about the back story. Many readers can insert their own back stories and identify with your phoenix tattoo. I'm imagining some form of addiction and recovery, but the back story could be anything where the road once traveled was rough and the road ahead is not necessarily easy, but better. (Report) Reply

    Lovely image of the phoenix and its illustration on the skin. 'Nothing Lasts Forever' but a tattoo lasts as long as the skin has life. A sensitive metaphor, written without oversentimentalising or padding. (Report) Reply

    mad props sister. i like this one. your just describing a tattoo but you do in a way that makes it sound, for lack of a better word, epic. nice. (Report) Reply

    This is a subject that I have often wondered about. Some have tattos on them which they may regret in life for eg...some one's name or the name of their caste which may embarass them later in life. But it is something that you cannot erase and I felt so much for your thought in this wonderful poem. Regards, arya (Report) Reply
