A Few Visitor Comments

I really like this, Its speaks the truth.
you brought tears to my eyes because i have been there its beautiful!
This poem was amazing! I have felt that way soo many times before! I think it speaks for the majority of women who have dealt with the same jerky guys before. Rock on with your bad self girl! And keep up the amazing writing! ;)

Unseen Love

Why didn't you call her back last night?
Do you think she doesn't care?
would it even catch your attention
if she cut off all her hair?
And when she burned you with the candle
she did it because she liked you.
Didn't you notice she burned herself
to feel what you felt too?

You told her all the answers
before the questions were asked.
You knew just how to do it
before you knew the task.
they wrapped a chain around you
they won't even let you grow
they think they do what's best
but they will never know.

You are a prisoner inside,
don't think she can not see
all the pain around you and who won't let you be
she's been there herself
don't say it's not the same
it feels just like they all did
although it has a different name.

You close up all the curtains,
so no one can see inside
you want her all to yourself
you want her to hide
your afraid of all her beauty
and what's inside her head-
the only time you love her is when she's lying in your bed.

BUT just wanted to say that this poem is one of the best i have read! You Did A GREAT jod!
I almost cried about this one, I know the feeling
So true!
All I can say is that I loved it.
wow.your poetry is the truth in it's ugly, bare, existence. I was treated like that and it took me a long time to realize that was wrong and i deserved more. But lots of girls don't, I didn't, you didn't, but when you do you feel like a whole new person. Too many guys don't realize the effect they have over us.or maybe they don't even care.
i love this poem because it has a great rhythm . it is exactly what happens to most girls in real life. great job
Been there!
