To love is to destroy to be loved is to be destroyed~jace wayland

I am like a balloon
On the outside colorful
On the inside empty
Very tall in appearance
But in reality its short
It can go anywhere
But is being being told what to do
It stands out in a crowd
But sometimes all it wants is to be invisible
I am like a balloon
put to much pressure on me and I will POP!

It was ok, I like it but I would add more to the poem.. Explain more on how it reflects you. Remember, put your heart into what you write, don't push yourself to think of a poem. Let it come to you. Take your time, no rush :) do these things and I am sure you could become a great poet

I love this poem, but I agree that you could have made it longer and used more imagry. I love reading your work; I hope you post more soon :))

Check out my work. PRETTY PLEASE!!!

I love the rhythm of the poem, but I felt it needed some more imagery.
