Words This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

So sweet
Yet slicing
Mean so little
Yet so much
Can’t live without them
Yet it’s possible
So easy, so clear
Yet difficult, murky
Can build you up
Or make you crash
The power of a simple
Yet difficult aspect

Writing long long things is no difficult task, giving your writing brevity and with such a wonderful choice of words , now that is something to be proud of. Absolutely LOVE your poem.

I love the description, use of contrast, and vast vocabulary. Good job!

Great poem! I really like how you contradicted yourself almost every line! You really hit what words are! Could you look at my poetry and tell me what you think? Thanks.

It's really interesting - i liked the imagery that you used to describe something that isn't really tangible. Good job!

I'd love if you took a look at my poetry. Thanks! :D
