Ruthless This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

By , Kalamazoo, MI
I miss you in your dreamlike air,
your sandstone voice,
your silverleaf hair.
I miss you in your whirlwind face,
your iceberg eyes,
your illicit grace.
I miss you in your unworthy tears,
your bloodstained smiles,
your paranoid fears.
I miss you in your dominant breath,
your poisoned remarks,
the threats of your death.
I miss you in your ravaging way,
your ruthless untruths,
your love for a day.

Your author's note was not necessary the least bit. That's how well you did.

Keep writing.

This poem was written very well. The descriptions are wonderfully unexpected, and it is so interesting the way that they changed from the beginning to the end of the poem.
