think of it what you will
it could be of so many different things

idk tho- its kinda angsty :/


without you
its not the same
i keep wondering
who was to blame

was it me
and my wishful Thinking
that you would finally leave?

was it mom
and her constant Shrinking
at life's enormous battles?

No, it was you
and all your Drinking
time after time
night after night.

but now- with you gone
i have no choice
with you gone
you have no voice

for i blame you
and you cant defend yourself
i blame you
because in all honesty
you should hate yourself

just face it
without you
its not the same
but now i know
Exactly who to blame

i blame you, Dad

  You're certainly free to disagree with me on this, but I feel that rhyming should be done consistently if you're going to do it at all. Or if not consistently, then at least in a way that doesn't call attention to the fact that it's a rhyme.

What I'm trying to say is the rhymes in this are too rough. I get sucked into the expectation of a sound and I either get something uninspiring like same-blame and choice-voice, or I get suckerpunched by a dropped rhyme (in particular the sixth stanza).

The smoothest section was the thinking-shrinking-drinking bit -- though I wish you hadn't felt the need to capitalize those words, bit of an overkill there. I also wish you'd kept the drinking stanza to just three lines, to match the previous stanzas' patterns.

As far as content goes...Ultimately, I feel that there's a lot of potential emotion in this piece that has been brought down by the execution.

Try to take a step back and look at this piece without your personal experiences clouding your perceptions: is there anything here you haven't seen before in every other angsty poem? Are these the most effective words to get across your situation? Have you said anything in a unique way?

You've got the skeleton of the poem. You know what you want to say, now it's time to figure out the best way to say it.
