Boy meets Girl

November 17, 2009
boy uses girl as sex toy

girl hates life
tries to run away
boy wins girl anyway

girl falls down
wont get up
what a case of bad luck

girl grows big
boy is dumb
their child sucking on his thumb

life goes on
we grow old
she becomes the Centerfold

her world is done
nothing more
right there on the kitchen floor

I love this so much. It sort of makes me sad, but it kind of makes me feel...idk. I really like it. <3

Comment on mine, dear?

I like the theme behind it. Some of the symbolism I didn't understand right away, but I tend to appreciate that in poems (ones that make you go back and re-read it to understand) Another good one! :)

This is a very good poem. It contained a smooth flow consistently throughout, and I particularly enjoyed the double meanings and symbolism you incorporated into the verses. My only critique is that I personally prefer longer of a longer length, but that is strictly my opinion, and if elongating the piece threatens the flow and rhythm, leave it as it is. Very well worded and creative. Good job!
