Hypothetically

Custom User Avatar
More by this author
I'm always there for you but who was there for me
When I dropped the baby on its head, metaphorically?
I was there for you, who was there for me?
When I jumped, did you say no? Hypothetically.
I was there, was always there but never there,
Impossible but true. How does it happen? Knowing truth. Monumentally.
Did I find me inside your mind ever in my life?
But never did I ask anything of you
You should have known what I wanted in the first place.
Laughing off the cliff I went, hysterically.
And wondered if you had yelled, "No!"
Hypothetically.

At first, it's kinda hard for me to follow this poem until I realize what this is about. I think this is well-written. My only wish is that you used another word instead of using hypothetically twice. One in the thrid line and one in the end. Other than that, I think it's good.

this is very good! I agree with pinkowl, I love the long words, they add a flavor a lot of poems lack. the words seemed chopped up though, but maybe that's the new format I'm still getting used to.

This is definitely going into my favorites, I can relate to your words and the metaphors are fantastic! Especially "I was there, always there but never there". Definitely the best line.

If we don't question what happens then how can we question what doesn't happen?

Great poem! I liked the different words you used such as 'hypothetically' and 'metaphorically.

There were a few spelling mistakes here and there, but the poem is still very good! Keep it up! :)
