    dotsTo Youdots

    I'll start this off by saying "I love you"
    Because I could never say it enough
    I'll give up everything to stay with you
    And I'll follow you to the ends of the earth
    I wish I had all the knowledge
    And the perfect thing to say
    To make you sure that this is good and real
    And the very best way.
    I know we have our doubts and problems
    But we have something worth fighting for
    If it was easy, it wouldn't be real
    You and I are so much more
    Our differences make us real
    Our passion makes us burn
    There are so many things about one another
    From which we both can learn
    I can put aside this pain
    And you can look beyond my past
    And we can both be something better
    And I know that this can last
    There's a reason we're together
    And that's because we need to be
    I don't know what I am to you
    But you're the one who set me free
    So, let's chase our dreams together
    And never give up without a fight
    Battle what threatens to tear us apart
    Because we are everything that's right

      I realise that this is the kind of love poem that has been reiterated billions of times but it never seems to get old, I only hope it's real and not based on something you want and don't have.

      Sorry, but this just feels like love poem 101.
    There isn't anything new or interesting about it.
    The content isn't the type of thing to excuse the lack of interesting imagery or wording.

    I do like the first line because it made me think, "This poem is going to be honest and self-aware of what it is", but then you continue with just a basic love poem.

    "To make you sure that this is good and real"
    I don't think there is anything inherently wrong about this sentence, but when I read your poem in my head and out loud this is the only sentence that feels awkward to me.
    "To prove that this is good and real"
    "To make you sure this is real."
    "To show you this is real."

    My suggestions aren't special, but I don't feel that this poem displays your full ability either.

    I agree with keestu that there's no intensity, no appreciation, no admiration. This is just a long statement.

    As far as rhyme, if you were to revise this, toss all the rhyme. "Our passion makes us burn/There are so many things about one another/From which we both can learn" is one glaring example of why.

    Instead of these vague statements give us something to look at. Give us something to feel. As it is, this poem can only really be interesting to just the person who it is written for and even then for the ego boost it gives rather than for the beauty of the piece.

    Tell what you can learn. Show us what makes you different and how you reconcile that. "Our passion makes us burn" how? Why? Otherwise the line is cliché. Show what makes it difficult, show what makes it worth it. All I get from this piece is that you think the relationship is worth it, but not why it is worth it.
    It feels more like a desperate plea rather than an exultation of love...

    I suppose this isn't a very kind comment, but I know you can do better than this and I'm disappointed.

      This was written very well. The flow was a little rocky but other than that it was very nice. I liked how the emotion was seen clearly. I'm glad you found someone to write such beautiful poetry about. Keep up the awesome work, and I'll keep reading

      Well I did not feel any forced rhyme even though it has some but nice work.

    It was wierd to see I love you at the very beginning of the sentences most would prefer it at the end.

    Well It makes me think of someone i admired. Unfortunately as i go by the poem I could not feel any intensity(this is because there is no appreciation anywhere in the poem) and love (this is because there is no admiration.)

    What i mean is the below

    Admiration - you are beautiful
    appreciation - even winds will stop blowing just by your eyes moving around

    Well then hope this helps.
