Short but powerful. I love your word choice of "adored", "enveloped" and "darkness", as I feel they all kind of share a common theme in our minds.

When I think about this, it's really deep, but I don't feel that you made effective use of you limited syllables. While you did have a good idea, you didn't max the potential of that idea. You wasted words to try to get the exact amount of syllables, and it's obvious. Let's use an analogy.

Say you have to build a sculpture using a certain amount of clay. If I make an amazing sculpture but have too much clay, I can just tack it on somewhere and have a slight flaw, or I could start all o... (more »)

i like the comparision between before and now. the words "abored" and "envelope" really just push the emotion forward and in such short poems words like that are just what you need- very nice diction
