briana m. is right. i loved how you did'nt have to use sentences to get your point across. it sounds like this happened, because of the way the mood changed. in most poetry the feeling stays the same, but in real life, everything is always changing- just like your poem. excellent job.

i like the mood of it, i loved how you changed the meaning of it so fast. but i dont know....there's something missing i seems like there needs to be a different ending. but what do i know? lol
