i miss his touch
i miss his voice
i miss the way he'd hold me close
i loved to listen to the beating of his simple heart
i love his hair and deep blue eyes
and how he'd comfort me
i love the way he'd listen and wipe my tears away
he'd hold my hand and squeeze it tight
make me feel important
but one day he just up and changed
he threw me in the gutter
he turned so mean and grew so cruel
treating me like a possession
making me an object
always trying to control
i wanted just a bit of space
now i have all the space in the world
it hurts so much i scream and ache
what have i done what have i done
agreed to all this pain
i should have fought i should have fought
fought for what i wanted
my heart, it aches
but soon will heal
so i can put it in a cage
i never want to feel again
after pleasure comes the pain
maybe this was for the best
a lesson to be learned
i will not shed another tear
for i am bigger
i am stronger

Your poem was good in that it was a release for some of your pain, and you made others (readers) feel a bit of what you are feeling

I salute you N., I just read your poem. Nice! Avoid the initial verses (i)s, too many... It is a sign of younger age poets. You can easily correct that, since it offers nothing useful. Your rhythm flows fine. Actually I was listening to a good new wave song on the radio, and the music mingled with your repetitions well. It was impressive. (I should have fought). Continue! You have potential.

I usually try not to be an emotional person but you have brought more than a tear to my eye. It is absolutely wonderful x

Pretty good! I had some difficulty with the beat but the emotion was well illustrated.

A progression of joy and pain and loss! I have seen this and lived it. You have done a nice job of voiceing the scale of emotions. If it's true, stay away from any who would abuse you.

This is really good, i can feel that this is not mere words, these are feeling that came straight from heart. I am lucky enough to stumble at this one. making me feel better that i am not the only one.
