Thank you so much, Liv. Sorry for taking so long to say this. Been busy busy busy. But I promise never to be busy enough to not thank someone, especially you, for reading and commenting on my work. And yes you can have signed copy of my book; that is, if I ever get published. But you have to do the same for me, when you're published. And yes, my poetry is therapy to me; and I hope it's power and truth to those who read. And that they embrace the message—the good not the bad bitterness that I may sometimes incoporate in my poetry. Thanks.

WOW! Another amazing haiku Mckay! And no, I am not just saying that: I actually love this. I love how it is in question format, it makes the poem feel much more personal, and i think that is why it probably resonates with so many people. Really, the emotion in this piece is tangible and if i weren't in such a happy mood, it would have brought have tears to my eyes. Beautiful job! I mean, I don't know you but I have a lot of respect and admiration for your poetry because it not only tells a story, but like you said: is therapy. For some people, this haiku might speak the truth. I love how socially aware you are: the teasing poem, the cutting poem. To reitterate, I love your work wholeheartedly. When you are a famous author (who will leave a outlasting mark on humanity) can I please have a signed copy of your book. Please? Hahaha always a fan: keep rockin :)

Couldn't have asked for anything better from anyone. I'm glad this poem had that effect on you. Thank you, CandlelightWarrior. Cool name by the way.
