I loved this poem, it was so touching but a sadness lingered throughout the whole thing and i felt sorry for the character the whole time. It's hard getting through to someone who finds it difficult to open up, speak their feelings and show emotion in the critical times. APPLAUSE! :)
George j.
A wonderful poem about a woman who can not find love in mere mortals but learns to love her robot who cannot share the emotions from him that she expects. Some times life's realities are out of reach of our expectations. This is a rare love poem with a vital message woven into it.
mykala
this poem was HOT!
Ally
I really liked this poem, it reminds me of this guy im with who i get mad at for this exact reason, i think i understand now. Thanks alyssa :-D
Rick
i would like to thank whoever wrote this poem. it has given me hope to a second chance with my wife. I screwed up bad and I need to let her know that I truley am sorry, and I can only hope this touches her as much as it did me.
Amber
I wasn't sure whether to read it or not do to the title but that's what caught my attention and it's very appropriate in my opinion. Something else i'd like to say is that I find it hard for me to right in rhyme, it's something that i have to strain for and it's hard for me to get the message and the feeling out when i do so but this piece has done it so eloquently that it still lets you feel and leave you in anticipation of what will happen. It makes you want more and I love that.
natasha
i give this poem a 100 it was great amazing i loved it it was so touching and real i felt like if i was in his shoes
Farah K lvr poet
I cannot express to you how I felt about this beautiful poem. I am also a writer and I have never come across a poem like this. I cried while reading with love and serenity. My heart is slowly mending thanks to your poem.
Tony
Very good and a simple form. You also cast a pall on the reader as the poem progresses to it's surprising end.
Mike
Mike, Your poem was so apt! In some ways, although me and my girl (I wish she was my girl!) are not engaged or married I think the characters sum us up well!
Kelli
I really do love this poem. loved the rhymes and made me think about which part i might play out of the two. two thumbs up. Love it sooo much
angie
you have my vote 100% on this one you are a good writer keep up the good work.
JaKecia
I voted for this poem because I can relate to it. I'm constantly being told and I'll be the first one to admit that I don't express myself very well verbally and a lot of what I feel is left unsaid. I've gone through things and I've held things in for so long that I don't quite know how to put my feelings into words anymore. Anyway, that's why I voted for the poem. I can simply relate.
Alicia
I found this poem very touching. And then when I got to the end. I was like wow That was the same role with me but in this case I'm the woman. Men should take note of this. Lot's of husbands I think fall in that
Phillip
I have to admit this guy is blessed with the art of playing with words. He makes you feel like his diary when you read his poems. we have so much to learn from his poems. It is simply beatiful,if only i could describe "Beautiful"
Jessica
this poem was really stunning it touched me.
Christina
This poem is genuious. great job
Erica
THIS WAS A EXCELLENT POEM. I REALLY LIKE IT BECAUSE I CAN RELATE TO IT. IM AM OFTEN MISTAKEN AS COLD BECAUSE I DON'T HOW TO SHOW MY EMOTIONS.
Kewashah
I love this poem because that robot sounds so much like me. Being a woman it is expected of me to show emotions and even though sometimes I really want to I can't. To me emotions lead to vulnerability and that lead to people taking advantage. This poem kind of makes me feel like I am not alone. Thank you for writing it.
Sheree
This poem touched me deeply. And I have shared it with all my friends with credit to the author Michael Mack.
aracelly
i really like your poem i always like to read poems and write them
samantha
That robot was me.
brady
THis is a geat poem. THanks ofr helping get my girlfriend back
Bunmi
this poem was beautiful, Michael Mack is a genius
savanah
wow
Alisha
THIS POEM REALLY TOUCHED ME BECAUSE I'M A FEMALE BUT I'M VERY SELF-ABSORBED AND TEND TO BOTTLE UP MY FEELINGS AND NOT SHOW EMOTION. TRUTHFULLY I'M SINCERE AND SENSITIVE BUT I CAN COME ACROSS APATHETIC BECASUE OF MY NONCHALANT ATTITUDE. I GUESS OVER THE YEARS I'VE BEEN SCARRED AND LET DOWN AFTER EXPRESSING MY FEELINGS TO SOMEONE THAT I'VE BECAME INSECURE IN THAT AREA. I'M FULL OF LOVE AND AFTER READING THIS POEM I'M GOING TO THE MALL AND BUYING MY HUSBAND A GIFT FOR HIS PATIENCE AND LOYALTY. THANKS FOR THIS POEM. I FEEL LIKE SOMEONE TRULY UNDERSTANDS. :)
vanessa
nothing could express what every person goes through in life when love is involved more. very deep and true thank you for sharing it.
adrian
I like the way it was written.
Sasha
This poem is by far the best I've ever read. It was indeed touching,something that everyone could relate to.
Gloria
Very well done, thx.
chez
that was rly sad - a bit like me som times - well done
Brittany
I really liked this poem because it is really touching and comes across to me as it being how someone felt
Felicia
Wow, this is a beautiful poem. I see it as a love story put into a few word's with somuch meaning. and when reading this poem, I feel that to many of us play out to be that same robot later in life after giving up on love.
Rebecca
Poem ws very good,
Glynn
I think for what it is worth your poem had such depth and feeling and made me reflect just a little about the past
Patricia
That was awesome. It was heart-felt and real. I feel the maid's pain.
Caity
I Loved the way you kept to the topic there, and how well you explained the emotions felt. ^_^ Thanks.
Carrie
This was a great poem. If you have had a relationship like this it is very fitting indeed. Thanks to the author who put it in words.
April
I love the poem. It touches me, because, I, too, felt that pain before.
Nomndeni
I am a writer and this poem really touched my heart. It is written in a very simple and passionate way.
Tina

danny
Great poem. keep it up!
criselda
nice job youre great :-)
Laurent
wow . ive never heard something that lifelike to myself in situations when ive been told i have no emotion in relationships. it almost made me cry.
Paige
i thought this poem was really good. Its one of my many favourites. Its very good and made me feel what the charactors felt. On a scale of 1 to ten i give this poem a 10!
Michelle
I have tears in my eyes as my heart weeps, I identify with this poem from a womens point of view. I am in love with a man who says he loves me yet seldom shows his senitivity. I have searched for the right words to say to him and started to look online for inspiration. I have to send it in e-mail or letter form because he will not sit to hear anything 'mushy'. I have seen his face change when he reads my notes, and I knoww that I have reach somewhere deep inside. But Dear Poet, this is the one that speaks volumes to me and I am sure to him after he read it. thank you.
Fatima
Wonderful poem
lisa
Awesome poem!
ada
GREAT DRAMATIC POEMS i LOVE IT
dee
This poem is fantastic, and I can so relate to, I have recently met a man who is just like this robot, I know he has deep feelings and wish I could help strip his armour of steel.
Lamont
That was deep!
Amethyst

R'Rielle

that was one of the most insperational poem i have read in along tyme. it's good to knoe that there are others out there that are willing to express there emotions. even better when your good at it. it was awsome.
moiramay
touching funny and very interesting
kimberly
I love the poem so much. it has alot of meaning. i am only 12 and may not know wut love is yet but the auther must of had alot of love when her or she made this poem. keep on makin poems so beautiful like this one. it filled the hole in my heart that needed faith . this poem has given me more of a reason to love everyone i see just in case they have no one -kimberly-
ANN
This poem made me cry tears of joy! So beautiful and well written. It made my heart flutter, because I to, have tried to make people the way I want them to be, but if it's not heartfound, to no avail.
avien

felicia
The poem was so good i almost cried
Jessica
I loved the poem it was like a short story and it touch me. I thought it was phenomenal. I would give this a ten!
Dylan
wow this is one of those ballads where you really have to stop and think about the deep creativity and mind the author must contain after all of Mr. Macks work i have to stop and take a hard glance at who i am as a writer and as a person. breath taking, simply, breath taking
sue
oh my god this is sooo real and so sad why does this have to be so god save us all bless you
Acacia
To hear that he had such an outlook like that and to have emotions like that kinda makes me sad, yet I connect to him because I go through life feeling like that everyday and I am yet still a teen. Nearing being an adult I would never want to make someone feel that kind of hate to me. It breaks my heart that someone would feel like that to write such a moving poem like that. Yet I must say this is wonderful work. I admire this kind of work although I am more of the type to write very deep and dark stuff and I hardly ever post or publish a lot of it but still I must say I look up to this person.
shannon
I just thought the poem was very beautifully written.
skyla
thats so swwt sounds like my bf he loves me to death like you said in the thingy i write poerty to so keep the faith love your stuff never give up (keep those wise words) lol ~skyla~ tooldes
Justin
your poem represents me perfectly. i don't show my emotion and no one loves when i can't express what i feel. i actually gave this poem to a girl woh couldn't understand me. we're still friends now.
stefany
i know exactly how you u feel ive tried so hard to tell people i love them but yet i find that my words somehow entangle within eachother and i stumble but whispers out!
Rachel
this is one of thhe best poems iever read, something in my life that i know about, LOVE HURTS!
April

Megan
I liked your poem. I would have been proud of it if I had written it. The rhythm was very flowing. (maybe too much. ) Anyways, it was a really nice poem. Thanks
maria
you cant say you lived unless you open up that medal heart to bear its soft core then your cold tear of grease will be no more
Brittney

brandy
this poem is really good it reminds me of this guy that ive been seeing off and on for almost 4 years
Krista
I absolutely love this poem. It describes so much that happens today and every day. It's so sad how people can identify with something so common as a poem.
kali
hi michael. im just here to say that u have a real talent and you need to keep up the awesome work!this poem almost made me cry for i like my best friend jeremy, but he'll never know it for he likes other girls. hopefully he'll see this poem and i can tell him. i cant really express my feelings well and result in him thinking im heartless or something. but ur poems keep me happy and u should be proud.
lodania
this is a very deep feeling and thinking poem i would like to hear a lot more from this authour. lj
Maureen
REALLY NICE; IT'S HARD WHEN A PERSON CAN'T OPEN UP
tacasheia
i loved your poem. i was moved by so much i'm so lost with word's to say boi your poem took my breath away. but let me in with dis "never fall in love to fast becasues as quickly as it come's into your life it can quickly become your past. "
Anthony
Man, awesome poem! Everything rhymnes and fits perfectly with the entire flow. I liked the simplicity and the idea your trying to portray behind it because it kinda reminds me of me. hoping to see more of your work.
kassie
this was a really good one. one of the best so far u know. keep on doin wat ur doin.
Vicky
I like this poem because even tho i'm female, and reasonably young, I can still relate to it. I have jus recently split up from a bf who refused to talk, and listen. He wouldn't discuss things with me and wouldn't engage in meaningful conversation. This poem highlights both sides of the 'argument'. And has made me feel I can see it from his side. I think it's a brilliant poem.
Jennifer
It was rather long but the twist was good. I love being suprised at the end.
Juliana
It is beatiful. I think there are too many ppl that have the love reight by there side and just cant see it.
kali
omg i love that poem!it was really beautiful and i just loved the way it rhymed and was put together. these other people are saying this is one of their favorites. well this IS my favorite poem. Michael, you are talented. what are you doing posting this on a site? go out in the world and write a book and become rich and famous!this reminds me of my best friend jeremy who cant admit his feelings. ill have to reccomend this to him.
Ashes
this poem is so cute
shannon
its a sad but true poem. but i think that you cant be all that much of a robot if you can write that kind of poem. i think its a great poem.
Stacy
Hit Home
Daniel
beautiful poem. good job
Robin

Kelly
One word for this poem AWESOME! You really touched my heart greatly.
Lourdes
wow, this poem almost made me cry. It's so touching and yet, it saddens me. A beautiful heart-felt lyric set.
Mayra
THIS POEM WAS GREAT KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK
Summer
That was beautiful I hope you can get her back and become human once more that robot side must have left because a machine can't write this beautifully.
Nina
It is so sad and lovely. I love it. ^^
Mark
Deep and full of symbolism, with a perfect moving twist. The best poem ever! And I've read so many.
Matthew
It's great. Sometimes it's hard for me to open up and let people know that I have feelings for them. I can really relate.
Amanda
I really like this poem. it kinda confused me like in the middle. but then at the end I got what it was saying. it's actually kind of sad tho. but it's really good and I like it
Dani
Your poem really inspired me to show how i feel. I never really thought how much it would hurt others. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Jessie
It was beautiful, emotional. You can feel and understand watch the story unfold as you read. This is a great poem.
zach
I agree with you. Love is different for each persona and each relationship. I have met some people that are not cold and unable to feel, they just do not know how. I just look deep into thier eyes and watch, and remember that all humans do it, some just do not know how to express it!
Sarah
Wow. This is absolutely stunning. I've yet to see a poem like this. I have a fascination with robots, so of course I'd look at it. You took the cake and ate it too, my friend.
Concetta
This poem is simply amazing.
Sarah
i loved the poem i understood the feelings it told a sort of storey
jazzmine
it was nice
rana
awesome. wat is said cant b said in a better way than this
Venessa
It has been quite some time, since I have heard such a testimony that touched me in a way such as this. I once was able to express my emotions in a way that simply my words would make others sob, and wonder in amazement how I could do so. I, myself have become a robot because not only am I unable now to express myself through poetry and sonnets, as before, I cannot in emotionally in relationships as well. I too, lost a love for that reason and I can relate to your poem like you were speaking my life. It must have been painful, but it is beautiful! It lingers!
Sven
I really liked how this poem flowed, much like a story. Many poems are repetitve but this one drew me in and showed me a part of human I rarely see. Thanx for this poem and continue writing. You obviously have a gift. Out of loss comes a gain, which in your case is writing
wanda
I think this was a great poem. It truly reflects how some people express their emotions. Sometimes you look at them. See a person standing in front of you, but you get the response of something electronic.
Trinasha
I am a poet and that was really good I like how you kept the reader at the edge or your words and the ending was great
sheila
excellent poem thanks
DENISHA
LOVE THIS HAVENT SEEN THIS REAL AND GOOD IN A LONG TIME. 10 STARS

Mr
wow! this poem was great,it made think about expressing my feelings when needed. THANKS MIKE
Tierra
I thought your poem was really cool. I was really moved by it.
WAYNE
The feelings expressed by the husband here is so like men in general. We have that cold, calculating logic (cold steel) that enables to function as men but so often, fails us when we enter into personal relationships. We allow our logic etc. , to define our feelings. The poem seems to make me address that cold fact and doing so, I have to, at least, try to change my nature. This poem speaks to me and I like it!
Steel
My first visit to this forum and the first poem I read. was me. It sent such tingling, rushing emotion through me that I felt a wetness in my eye. I loved the poem and hope you do continue writing them as I will continue reading them. Thanks
Kim
Wow, amazing poem! Superbly written. Unfortunately I can relate, to both sides it seems. Keep up the excellent work!
billy chick

Christina
it really touched me because i used to be cold towards everyone until i found my boyfriend. he saw thought the cold exterior to a beautiful fun-loving caring girl and for opening me up i thank him for that.

MARY
YOUR POEM WAS GREAT THANX FOR SHARING IT WITH ME
john
feeling love and to show it is a hard thing for me to do the robot reminds me of what i'v lost and gaind over my short life to know the robots pain of not showing love for those that need to see it
ashleigh
this was a good poem. it was sad that a robot just wanted love and who could not just because he was a robot.
Natali

gaby
it was really good, i liked it a lot! good job
KR
I'm a fan of your poetry, as you put as much emphasis on rhyme and meter as you do in a lesson learned, the hardship of life, and the fact that we are all ultimately - human. Even this robot.
Ceinwen
Beautiful. Thats all I need to say about the poem.
Helen
This poem is not only very touching, and unique. it is very worthwhile. Thank you ~ It was a pleasure to find it, and enjoy it!
Ally
This Poem really pulled at my heart strings. when my boyfriend and i have an argument i often call him a robot. no longer will i do this! you write so well, please keep writing and inspiring.
Kristy

rebecca
Hi I was most impressed. What a fab poem. I am sending it to a friend and sending a copy to my partner whotoo has some difficulty expressing his emotions. The poem made me laugh and smile. well done!

yuelle

Shannon
I love this poem. It is a description of my current relationship. I am trying to break through the wall of steal of a very special man in my life. I have been trying to show this man how much I love and care about him for almost 2 years now. Just about the time I think he is coming to real life, he pulls away.
Clarissa
This poem is outstanding. It is so touching and moving. I applaud you on your effort and work!
Margo
this was a really nice poem
Michael
this poem reminded me of how i used to be, i was known as a cold person to many, until i met a person like me, it showed how i was so i made myself change and now i show emotion at every opportunity. Beautiful poetry
Chris
WOW! The experience I felt when reading this grasped my breath and emptied me of all despair. In such words you have found a way to explain what it is like to create a casing of protection from pain or any feelings. Although I try my best, your poem is by far the greates I have ever read. It encompasses such great artistic virtues its unbelievable. Thank you!
jennifer
This poem gave me chills
Jen
WOW! This poem really touched me, it's also written astonishingly well. good job!
Bridg
This poem was absolutely amazing and it greatly touched my heart! You did such a wonderful job with this writing!
jah
I really was touched by this poem. I guess it hit home because i would consider myself the robot. it was excellently worded and inspiring
Dani
Oh! I do love a poem that inspires me to be a better writer. one thing I do not understand. it's hard for me to envision you as that Robot! You obviosuly know how you share your emotions. through poetry even! My heart goes out to you. ! Good luck with everything!
CHRIS
WOW!
becca
i really liked this poem because i can relate to what it is saying!
Lisa
Sadly, I came across your poem far too late. My cardboard cut out of a man has left and now I know his love was great. If this drama queen could turn back time she would have realized what was on his mind. This was a lesson I had to learn, now I search for Robots, I will leave no stone unturned! ( Take time to heal and do not fear another MRS. Robot will soon be there)
D
I'm at lose for words. I love your poem.
Amy
Thank you for reminding me of the inability to express love freely rather than the lack of desire to. If I choose to forget, I may lose somebody very special to me, the love of my life. Thank you, he is worth it.
KATTT
Loved it!
Liz
I don't know much about poems but this one really got me! I loved it! And I thought it's a bit like a sad fairy tale. the romance of a robot:D!
Tim
A pleasure to read, both in syntactical structure and content. I am not often moved by other people's words but you caught what is to me the art of poetry; You expressed so much more than the story you wrote.
Meena
Beautifully written. Expressions of countless heart's emotions. However, it does not end there. this poem my dear Michael, is jsut the begining. Continue the journey. I would love to read it all.
liz
this poem is so great. i liked it a lot. writing is very good. i guess it will touch many more robots out there.
Ryan
I believe that your poem is very indepth and well plotted. i do believe it was more of a story than a poem, but never the less it was spectacular. Well written and you ave my congratulations. I hope that you continue to bless us by posting your amazing creations. Keep writting and take care
daisy
i like this. thanks for writting this. it is really good.
Laci
hey, i loved it. it described something that happens alot with many ppl and they never really realize it. keep writing ur great
Will
What a great poem. How else can you put it. just wonderful. Thanx Michael!
stacy
excellent poet. I loved this poem. very creative
Silly
You made a 240lb 6' guy cry when he read that! I have been your "Robot" for the past 6. 5 years. Not a tough guy, just the Robot you speak of. My family was never "touchy feely" and therefore neithor was I. I loved her with all my heart, my "programmation" go in the way. :( THANX! I see I am not alone!
axel
Praise 2 u my good man for putting into beutiful words how so many of us feel,including me. u are an inspiration to us all
crys
What else can i say, except that only a real man could admit to such things. For once i'm speachless.
Alinn
Wow.
Tammy
I really liked your poem. It was really touching:)
A
Very sad poem. It was nicely written.
trace
i loved it. it describes me and my ex boyfriend becuz i could never share what i felt or what was wrong and he got tired of it and left me so i know how u feel
Shaz
Your poem brought a tear to me, it was a reminder of my ex-husband. Very well written !
Win
Great poem, it struck me as to how similar I often feel. Like a robot.
Tiny
This poem was a great poem, it showed that she loved him in return but he at the time he felt different, people should take this poem to heart and realize that because you are scared or because you don't want them to know, you must express yourself, or down the line you may be caught in the same situation. I know I have been in the very same situation, and I do regret my decision but that is soemthing I will live with. act for today not tommorow!
anne
the robot was no other than me
Lindsey
great great i like this poem alot!
IDA
IT IS A GREAT POEM. REALLY TOUCHES THE HEART.
Sandi
This was great. I too am separating from what I thought was my "robot" husband! I am e-mailing to him to try and build some bridges. Feelings matter but this expresses the fact that it does not come naturally to everyone. Thank you M
Lace

Right on! I hope other people who are experiencing this will read it. I found great comfort and some understanding in my life. I now know that it wasn't me who was being rejected.
Jefrey
I can't believe i am saying this but i loved it,heyMack you rule.
Annette
I loved your poem M.M., it hit my heart more than any poem I read today. I am sad to say I am "the" woman in your poem and I am in the process of leaving my robot husband. It's very touching and very sad. What happens to the robot after she leaves? Should she stay? They are so different these two characters and you've depicted them well. thankyou.
britney
i love your poem. it make me think of my ex boyfriend and how much i miss him.. i t makes me want to cry.
Gail
Alas - it truly expresses the pain the robot feels at not being able to express himself, and the pain that I (the wife of the robot)feel, knowing that he has a rich soul that cannot express itself. The pain he (the robot) feels hurts us too! I am truly moved by this poem that I unexpectedly came upon.
Colin
Loved it. I think we all need to appreciate that not everyone can be as openly emotional as others. The poem was well written.

I loved your poem. It, like "The Dummy", showed people making friends with material items(A dummy, and a Robot). I like the way you use adjectives and exelent verb use. Keep up the good work Mr. Mack!

My boyfriend of two years is a fireman. Talk about a cold robotic type person. He has seen and felt so much pain due to his job that when he comes home to me there is very little left of him to lend to me. This poem describes him to the T! I am glad I read it.

Helps me to understand a couple of people I am close to. I am so sorry for what happened to you, and it is obvious that some "robots" feel very deeply even though it is so hard to show it. God bless and keep writing.

That robot is me, also. Hit me right in the heart.

that made me cry.
amy
this poem gave me chills at the end when it was discovered the robot was him and he was being that way with his wife. i think that it struck a chord because i was once with a robot. it tugged my heart strings.
lenore
very moving
Liz
Well done, Michael! I recognize my fiance' in much of this. I've printed it out to show to him. Thanks!
melena
please write some more poems michael mack you´re great
Jessica
This took my breath away by the end of the poem. I've fallen in love with a certain "robot" before, and it's heart-wrenching. I know he loves me, but he can't bring himself to show it. It's like he's been "programmed" to go through life not being able to express his emotions. I can relate to you and this poem so much. Thank you. Oh, and remember that if someone really loves you enough, they'll understand and accept you just the way you are. Hang in there, robot...
Candyman
it was awesome to hear someone pu into words how so many people feel when they dont express their emotions how others anticipate or realize.
