This poem is very metaphorical....It's basically a poem of betrayal, obsession, and backstabbing....I had a dream that something like this happened....

Death by Obsession

Living my unknown life of hell,
you ask me to hand you another nail.
Building my coffin where I shall lay,
clinging to the words you say.
I'm living but I'm dying inside,
smearing all the tears I have cried.
You are my friend I love so much,
I'm needing I'm bleeding for your touch.
I walked on the hottest fire for you,
you have given me something else to do.
You asked to bury me alive,
I said ok and took the dive.
You said you would come back for me,
you placed the lid and I couldn't see.
I heard the sound of falling dirt,
my lungs had already started to hurt.
I could now hear nothing but my thoughts,
many years later my body still rots.
I waited for you until I had died,
my very last thought was of how you had lied....

  It does kind of sound like a dream. Its not very clear. It flows from one thing to the next with out much conection. My only sugjestion is to have a little better word choice. I think it would sound better if you said better if you said begun insted of started, just things like that. But thats just my opinon.

  Hi there. I liked the themes of this piece: betrayal, death, and obsession. Heavy stuff, indeed. I like the image of the coffin and burial, which you use well in several places throughout the poem. Also, the title is good (it catches the eye). If you are looking for ways to improve the piece, there are several things you could try. You might want to rewrite it without rhyming, as the rhyme scheme may be restricting your thoughts here, especially when considering the depth and complexity of the subject matter. Another thing you might want to try is taking all of the lines where you actually say something (i "I'm living but I'm dying inside" or "my very last thought was of how you had lied") and replace them with an image or images that convey what you are feeling. After all, it's usually better to show than tell, as showing lets your reader make his or her own assumptions about what you are feeling, which increases her or his interest in the poem.

If you make any changes, send me a note. I always like seeing a piece evolve.

! I love how every line has a metaphor,
Keep up all your writing,

Not in money or fame,
But in ____ Fill in the blank
