" You're only as tall as your heart will let you be and you're only as small as the world will make you seem." - Christofer Drew Ingle

We used to laugh
When I spoke you would crack your jaw and give a chuckle
Your eyes were bright when they gazed at me
Later you broke and said you gazed because you saw hope in me
But the hope was gone

You told me I had changed
That I was different
But on the contrary, my little butterfly
You are the one who had gone through metamorphosis

Before you had transformed
We had everything
Before you ran
We were everything

We used to sing
And write
We used to conjure lyrics and humorous limericks
We used to create
We used to dance
1, 2, 3
1, 2, 3
1, 2, 3
We used to be connected
We used to be one
We used to live
We used to care
We used to…
We used to laugh

So this a good poem, and it's well written.  Though honestly I'm bad at understanding poems/reading them/and writing them, so yeah, take my opinion iwth more than one grain of salt.

There is no such thing as nothing, yet there is such thing as nothing, simply because there is nothing such as nothing.

Was good, but it seemed like the first part almost rhymed and the rest didn't.

I thought it was a great poem well written. But I guess he wasnt you love beacuse you or him woulnt have gave up on eachother. But it was very well written.
