I Take Back My Tears MAG

I take back my tears
the wasted years
I spent crying
for what never could happen

I take back my heart
my shattered heart
Up off the ground
and back in my arms

I take back my hope
wasted on you
and toss it aside
for it has no meaning now

Nothing you say
no words
no songs
can heal the bleeding wound
That you opened again and again

I walk a free woman
held by nothing of yours
and fly away free
as free as the wind

Nice and simple. It is clear, concise, and focused. Great work on this. A powerful message. Very real, very vivid, very insightful. Loved it. 5 stars. Would you please comment on my poems titled Wizard of Words and Onward and Upward?

I'm sure this piece was supposed to be uplifting, but it was more like a mash-up of several hackneyed terms. There was nothing new or intelligent about it, just another angsty poem.

This poem really isn't that great in my opinion. I see the emotion, but other than that idk why it was even posted in the magazine.

OMG! I love this poem! I can relate to it so much! My ex now has been playing me off and on he keeps crawling back to me when he has no other "girls" that will take him. (Note: why I say "girls" like that is for they do not have class or respect for themselves they only want him for one thing, if you get what I mean.) So I have been torn apart by him my heart hasbeen riped open multiple times. Once I think he is out of my life, once I am over him he shows up and wants me back and I am to stupid to say no... So this poem has really helped me! Thanks so much love it!! We just broke up again, and I have came to conclusion I need to move on to better things! :)

No one is your strength or guidance. If life is what you wish to live then do not bind your soul to something unreal. The creater nor the keeper can heal you for it is blind faith that leads you.

I love this!!! Great work!!! And congrats on gettin in the magazine! Take a look at some of my stuff plz:)

This is a realllllly good poem!!

Also, I am new on here. Every time i submit a poem it appears with a bunch of question marks that weren't there before. Does anyone know how to fix this?
