hmm.. i'm not sure again about this one. tell me what you think, i'm open to any criticism

ending - starting

i can't believe this all happened
in just the last 12 months
so much changed
good and bad
and somehow everything
before the last 12 months
seems so long ago

12 months means more now than it ever did
you can loose someone
gain someone
find a home and lose another
work and not work
love and love some more

if not for the good
this last 12 months would have been impossible
i would have lost the struggle
to keep above water
to continue to tread and keep calm

12 months is also a year but
i can't think of these 12 as a year
it's like one long day with a lot of events
it just never ends
but this does
here and now

  I think this is a good poem. I dont think you need to be cryptic here at all. Basically this is very straightforward which isnt a bad thing. It is honest and true and speaks of life as you have experienced it. We all go through times like these, at least I have, and sometimes a year can pass as fast as one day and other times it can take an eternity as it seems you are stuck in a repetitious nightmare one day after another. And I like how you mention "her" and how she has helped you survive this difficult time. One person can make all the difference in the world. Good poem. Take care.

  Basically, this is the most straight-forward poem I've ever written. You seem to have a good idea going here, but it would be better if you tried delving a little deeper, and using some symbolism to express it. This poem is a nice start, but I'd try to be a little more cryptic.

  I liked this poem. Basically you described life. I mean good an dbad happens throughout it, sometimes it's more noticable at a specific point like you showd in the 12 months. I liked how you showed that because of this one person, it made living through those 12 months worth it. It really brings true meaning to the saying, 'in every grey cloud there's a silver lighting'. this poem, however, was very staright forward. Maybe you could describe things a little better, play with the words, that's what poetry is all about. Anyway, nice start!
