I have a relationship kind of related to this poem in the past. I tried to forget about him, but after reading this poem all those memories came back to me once more. At first I thought there was some chemistry between me and him, but as times went by, his feelings begain to change. He started to drift away. And so I just want to say that this poem of yours is really cool. keep it up. LOVE THIS POEM A LOT.

olivia
it sounded like something i would write it was an awesome poem and whoever wrote that should be darn proud of themselves
Amber
This is an amazing poem even though it's a shorter one. I see this a lot with my "crush" as others like to call him. (He does know that I like him) He has changed so much since the 7th grade, when I first started liking him, now here in our Junior year of high school. He cares to much about looking cool and he cares way to much about fitting in with the "cooler kids" I know he can be a better person, I've seen him do it, but yet he chooses to have a false personality. I can now look into his eyes and not see a true person.
lisa

I had an experience just like this one you want to be with them but for some reason you feel like you can just see right through them sometimes. I mean you see them in person wise but you never see them emotionally and spiritually cuz they have no heart. Your poem really reminded me how i felt when i was in the same situation with my ex-boyfriend at the time.
