Misunderstood

Walls closing in all around
She sees nothing but an empty portal of regret
Defused that she was eventually found
That night she shall never forget

The freezing fall night
Wind gnawing bitterly at her neck
Darkness blackening her from everyone’s sight
Feeling nothing but pure neglect

Feel of fierce frostbite sinking in her skin
Tears streaming down her face
She can’t wish for anything but to feel warm again
But as for now she will have to go face to face

Judged, embarrassed, hurt, and misunderstood
Eventually she found out that she actually could.

You show the emotions very strongly. I'm not sure I like the last line; it seems a little too abrupt and too vague. Also, you might want to ground the poem in some concrete event because it seems a bit too abstract to me.

Awesome! The poem really does speak for itself. I think we all feel misuderstood at times. You did a great job of discribing the feeling. 

Maybe check out some of my work?? :)

Great work! I think maybe you could work a little more on your imagery. :) But overall, you did a good job of getting your point across.

If you have a spare moment, I'd be honored if you were able to check out some of my work. I  really appreciate feedback.
