Eraser Smudged Heart

July 15, 2009
The pencil drawn heart,
Covered the page.
Inside she wrote,
His special name.

She showed him,
The heart.
And gave it to him,
With all her love.

He took it,
And told her the same.
But it wasnt long,
Until her heart was returned.

The eraser,
Smudged out his name,
But her heart will never be,
The same.

OOOOH!!!! I LOVE THIS ONE!!! The title immediately caught my eye and it didn't disappoint. NICELY DONE!!! Liked this a lot. 

But, as you may have expected by now, I do have one critique. You have got to work on the random commas in between all of your lines and sentences. That's all though. This was fabulous. Stunning. BRAVA!!!

I would love it if you could check out some of my work too... if you ever get the chance. :)

This poem is so true! It really portrays one side of love; the broken-heart one, that is. Good job! Oh yeah, thanks for commenting on my article a while back! :D
