I honestly love this poem, I shared it with my classmates, and they love your work.
This poem is great. As dark as it is, it's a great inspiration to those in an absuive relationship. I was in one and it took me a long time to realize that although I cared about this guy, my love was not going to make him stop. Congrats to all that have the strength to walk away from abuse.
Sounds like you could wrap up in a quilt and feel all kinds of love!
This poem is a wonderful poem and the author is a good one who could maybe even write songs. great poem it's so true and we should send it to so many people out there family, friends, teachers etc.
I really enjoyed this poem. I mean to say, I can relate to the subject! I am not the best at time management! Great poem!
This is an exceptional piece of work easily understood by anyone so guilty! :-) . like me. Thanks for the inspiration.
I was actually looking up an old boyfriend when I saw this poem. It made me cry because I felt the same way. Thank you for making it real, that I am not the only one that feels this way!
