I spend everyday
picking up the pieces
of fallen friends
and gluing them back together.

Eventually the glue will melt
and once more they will crumble,
but I will pick them up again.
If only to see them smile.

The author's comments:
I do my best writing at night. This was written around 11 o'clock at night. I was kind up upset/angry. Oddly enough this poem doesn't show that at all.

Thanks! <3 And yup. That's why it was Born This Way. Gotta love Gaga. Now it's "Soundophobic Polite" because she says that in the song "Se.xy Ugly".

I liked that this poem was straightforward-ly expressing the situation while still flowing nicely and using strong metaphors :) P.S. I saw that you were a Lady Gaga fan, I wrote an article about her :)) Good work and keep on writing! You are very talented :)

Simple, to the point, and very good.  You can really get a sense of this person even in just a few short lines, and the metaphor was great.  It flows well and just sounds natural.  Nice job.

This was simple and beautiful.  The messge comes across very clearly--taking care of all of your friends, keeping them together, putting them together when they've fallen apart.  The rhyme and flow is excellent.

I la-la-LOVE this. Its really relatable, and if you really look you can find anger. I find myself in this position a lot and get angry about it, that I'm so willing to help ALL the time, even when they make me mad. Great writing and nice flow. Keep it up!
