    It takes four years
    to know me.
    It takes one year
    to destroy me.

    You watched me from afar.
    You thought me to be strange.
    You took me aside
    and made me part
    of your turbulent life.

    You became the better
    side of me.
    You made me smile
    when all was not well.
    You listened when i whined.
    You eased my mind.

    Turning my back
    to the world for a second.
    You left me without warning.
    Helplessly floating
    hoping to find refuge.
    Where has my refuge gone?
    Alone again in this sick sad world.

    It takes four years
    to know me.
    It takes one year
    to destroy me.

      Hello, this is Alicia from class reading your poetry.
    I saw a lot of sadness in this poem, kind of reminds me of a few people I felt close to.
    Anyway, the beginning and end ties well together to keep the rest of the stanzas together. Makes me feel loneliness in this poem; I love these kinds of poems...

      Well done! This poem was very well written. It had a good flow and I like the wording. I think everyone has that one person who can make you so happy, feel so secure, and then make you feel so alone. Don't you hate it how one person can have such control over heart! Good job, keep on writing!

      I think this is beautiful, you did a great job.
    I think I will have to rember the line-
    It takes four years
    to know me.
    It takes one year
    to destroy me.
    That is just so clever!

      this was awesome. I really like the "cricle" that you made. what's it called? a "narrative loop?" yea, but I really like this poem. I know that a lot of people can relate so much to this type of poem because I'm pretty sure that we've all been there before. anyways, I hope to read some more of your stuff. I don't know when I'll be posting more of my stuff, but you know I will. don't forget the geeks. we miss you too. I'll see you on wednesday. turtle peace!

      i think this would make a great song if it was expanded a little bit...i like it, kinda tiny stansas, but i think that aids it somewhat...good
