Want to say this is the best poem I have read because it describes to a T the way I am feeling. Good on you! for getting the words out in writing. I just thought I was nuts.
This is a great poem. I would know I write my own poetry and I am having my heart broken as well. It makes me feel better to know people out there are like me as well. I hope to read more of your poetry.
I sat here and cried after reading this poem as it is exactly what I am feeling right now like I am going out of my mind over a person I loved so deeply.
I think that this is the best one and it tells me everything that happend in my life and losing one of my baby brothers, that means a lot to me.
I really enjoyed this poem, it made me cry because I had someone so close to me and within a second he was gone and out of my life. We didn't think that would ever happen, but I learned to enjoy love, or whatever it was while you have it. God, I miss him.
I came looking for a poem to express these exact thoughts. I found it. Beautifully done. I am sending it to someone who needs it.
Beautiful. It is how I feel when I think of the special someone, I can not have, in my life
