the vanished heart
A strange weightlessness endangered me; I was alone.
A shambled rib cage wraps around me.

Okay, so I've noticed that sometimes people have very differed opinions on a piece of poetry. It's not the writer's fault or the reader's, but the line between good poetry and not-so-good poetry is quite blurred.

I'd like to read a long poem of yours where you go really in depth. But anyway, please keep writing! Your work is absolutely fabulous. :)
