Vendetta

Vendetta...

 

I was raised believing that Vendetta meant something.

Like a prayer to be said in the morning.

Like a peaceful dream while I'm sleeping

Like a bullet ending one's suffering.

 

"Never rat on your friends" they said

"Always keep your mouth shut" they said

"We are your family" they said

"Yes sir" is what I said

 

They blind you with the color green

They energize you like caffeine

They wear the mask of a good man like it's Halloween

Just to make you a heartless machine

 

Do I have regrets? Yes I do

Did I ask for forgiveness? If only you knew

Can I leave? My death would be due

Do I have a choice... No

 

Remember in Italian is Vendetta.

As I pull this trigger, you'd understand

I chose this life and there's no turning back

But you should have never f*cked with me.

Not a bad little piece although if I had to point out one flaw, it's that it felt to me like you were trying too hard to rhyme, and in a couple of places, the flow and rhythm suffered. I have the same problem. I suggest to focus on what you want to say and forget about rhyming. If you can great but don't let it be an unmovable structure

 

Keep it up

La vendetta e dolce

 

I decided to read this, albeit my skill with poetry is very lax. I do enjoy the concept of form, and I believe I can at least tell when a poem rhymes.

 

I do not like the overall attempt in the first stanza. The repetition is supposed to raise tension, but putting like this, like that, like this, somehow feels weird to me. Considering it feels like you're shoving so many lines together, cutting it down would make it flow better:

It isn't much better or worse, but the repetition seemed a little lazy for me. To be honest the second stanza seems the same. I can see what you were going for; the repetition, and such, but it overstretches the final result of trying to rhyme, and cuts the poem flat for anybody reading it. The idea is that you can rhyme in one flush line that gives way to the next.

 

If you want some help, feel free to PM me, and we can focus on making this crisper and tighter.
