Somewhere in madness lies the fragments of beauty
That I waste away trying to find
How powerful, glorious, crushing, it seems
To do something as simple as write

Thanks so much! Honestly, I am impressed you got that much out of it. The fact that you obviously took time to read it carefully means a ton to me. :)

This poem reminds me of a shard of stained glass: beautiful but sharp. It's like an impassioned run-on sentence. Where other poems are curve, this is angle. Very unique. Great job making a short piece so powerful.

I like how this is sounds like one of those impassioned run-on sentences that you get out all in one breath. Its brevity and the way it flows makes it seem sharp, like a shard of stained glass. Very powerful for such a short piece. By the way, thanks so much for your detailed comments on my work!

Simply delicious! I found my mind wanting to drench myself if those words; they were so cleverly connecting. I LOVE what you've done with this, and I secretly envy you; I have tried for the longest time to capture as much emotion in as little of a poem. I love this. Great job.

I appreciate the feedback. :) my poems are usually longer, but I've been experimenting with a few short ones lately, so it's always nice to hear what someone thinks of them. ^.^

Simple and sweet, but I really feel like this poem can be more sophisticated and powerful.  I understand what you are saying but you should xxplain the last line.
