Answer me!
Critique me!
Do whatever you want to me!
Just, please, don’t skip me.

I know it’s the same with you.
You want another view.
You think your writing career might be through,
just because no one bothered to write something new.

I know how it feels.
It’s gotten me to skip a few meals.
Just kidding.
But, seriously, it’s your opinion I’m bidding.

Please, just do it!
Before I throw a fit.
I’m getting desperate.
Is it not clear yet?

Once you finish,
Know that my thanks will never diminish.
If you want, I will read what you wrote,
and, again, if you want, I will vote.

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this poem when I got frustrated by the few readers my articles got, let alone comments, critiques, and votes.
As you probably noticed by this poem, I want all of it. If it's asking too much, I'm sorry, but if you can you know what to do. Thank you! I'll go to at least one of your peices if you write underneath this article.

Poetry is all about expressing your feelings, and you've tackled a topic that I'm pretty sure all of us have encountered. Kudos :D
