ooze

from your lips

like peanut butter

sliding

down

the

side

of

the

jar.



Falling

too fast -

You can't catch it ...

the damage is done.

I like it very much! Even the structure of the poem itself is awesome. However you used "peanut butter sliding down the side of the jar" as a metaphor then you say "falling too fast-". But peanut butter is very stick...and moves slow. I think you could've thought of something different....Other than that, it's a great poem and an especially great topic, love it! And when you get the time check out my opinion essay on animal rights/ vegetarianism
