    dotsSee you.dots

    I will see you in Iraq.

    Where the pavement = sand.

    Where the people = enemy.

    Where the bugs = camel spiders.

    Where the crickets = incoming mortars.

    Where the spoon = M4.

    Where the jeans = DCU's.

    Where the days = eternity.

    Where the nights = brief moments.

    Where life = death.

    I will see you in Iraq.

      That is gorgeous... and sad. You're very creative.
    I usually don't like poems about stuff like this, but you made it different.
    What else can I say?
    I have no constructive criticism.

    Beautifully done

      sometimes the greatest impact is achieved throuh brevity.

    you got your point across. clearly and succintly. without seeming like you were trying to shove your beliefs down the soul of the audience.

    too often, people think that the more descriptive they are, the better the poem is.

    what they fail to realize is that imagination is the best of all. and you've allowed for it.

      This is a good poem. I don't think I have seen one written like this before... but maybe it's because I just got into poetry.

    Anyways.. You described how a soldier feels in Iraq with barely any words. So.. Im guess you were a soldier? But maybe I'm just wrong.

    You tell people what it's really like. How hard the soldiers have it. Going to places that don't have anything and leaving everything behind...

    Good job on writing this!
