This is seriously one of the best poems I have ever read. I can relate to every word, so this poem really touched my heart.

I enjoy reading someone elses poetry besides my own. Sometimes when I start to read someones poem, things just do not rhyme or they rhyme alittle and through you off in the middle. Yours was the total opposite, actually reminding me of my own. Keep the good work up Jennifer

Babe I hear you! I understand every word you have written, you have managed to put my thoughts on paper. Thank you for giving me somethng to hold onto, you do it well.

Wow powerful words that rocked the ground beneath me. What is worse than wanting what you describe is wanting so bad to want, really to want it with the one who wants this with you.
