All I want is
Someone
With whom
To share
The details with

Carefully listening
Giving my life
Meaning and purpose
Knowing that all
Will not be forgotten

Making me feel
Importance in
All that I do
Giving recognition
Where it is desired

Taking my hand
Walking with me
Day by day
Filling in
The missing spaces

Someone on whom
I can rely
When I have lost myself
To find and gather
All my broken pieces

A temporary being
Here to take
The place of
A love lost
Long ago

Alone I will
Never be
So long as
I have you here
For the time being

I LOVE that stanza!!!!!! haha now to the critique.

 

This poem left me feeling like I often feel when I get done reading proffessional poetry - impressed and more than a little confused.  Don't get me wrong - that's not a critisism.  I don't have a poetic mind, so when I say "confused", what you should be hearing is "your poem is deep and poetic enough to fluster a v...

i thought this poem was very good, i could connect to it a lot and im sure many other teens can too. the only thing that bothers me is you use the word "being" twice, but overall poem was great. keep up the good work!
