i.
I feel like a grenade just went off in my head and your words are the shrapnel buried in my brain.

ii.
I wish I could erase the marks on my thighs but they will always say fuck you and remind me of what you did to me.

iii.
I can never sleep anymore because every time I do you turn my dreams into nightmares. I would try sleeping pills but I'm afraid one will turn to two, three, and four, and then I would surely overdose and crumple to the floor.

iv.
My knees still hurt from begging you to stay but you said I was pathetic and wasting my time. I guess you were right.

v.
I saw my reflection in the mirror earlier and didn't appreciate what I saw. I punched the mirror hoping I would fall to pieces just as my reflection would. You broke everything I thought I used to be; now I hate all that I see.

vi.
I wanted us to last longer but I ran out of words and you ran out of patience and we both ran out of time. Now I have nothing left but cold bed sheets and this goddamned rhyme.
this is now day 15 in a row of writing something each day. some days ive even submitted multiple things xD

i'm so tired right now that all the words are growing blurry and i'm losing sight of where i was going with this.

comments and critiques please. feedback on concept, emotion, metaphors, imagery, and the ending. i still suck at endings. i think this one might be perfect though if you pay close attention to the wording.

these words are my heart. my extremely mangled heart.

well your extremly mangled heart wries immensly great things.I like the ending and the imagery was good.I think that maybe you could add more things about what happened to the 2 people?That would add even more effect.Well done.

I liked the ending the best.
I could feel the emotion you felt as you wrote it.
The imagery and concept was just amazing.
Keep up the excellent work.

...And then I read this, and then I'm feeling depressed again.

Awesome job.

this one is so tense, you have your way with changing the mood!
I was feeling rather happy when I started reading but now I feel...
groggy! i usually don't like your endings because I don't want the
story to end (there is nothing wrong with your endings, I guess ).

This is one of the best poems I've ever read. I loved the metaphors and images. I can relate to it to, which makes it that much more deep. Seriously, nice work.
