       old poem...not so sure if i like it...too much me in it, ya know?
    luckily i'm a bit happier now. I think psychology class with the shrill woman is just enough to make anyone miserable...lol.
    I just needed something new to post
    anyway, tell me what you think

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.

    dotsI can't learn...dots

    In a class, drop spinning a stolen blue pen
    She's lecturing us on memory,
    but I've forgotten most of what she's said
    I think all those hours of colouring my world with sharpies has gone to my head
    I'm learning how to hate writing
    And loathe reading
    But I can't learn how to stop breathing

    I've given up on finding someone to love
    I've given up on trying to find a friend
    But I can't seem to give up completely
    And bring my life to an end
    the over doses are never enough
    And all the ropes I bring to my neck
    Fall limp in my hands before I'm completely gone
    And I have all of the bruises to prove it
    Everytime I try to hold my head under the water
    My mouth gasps for water before my mind can stop it

    And now I'm giving up on giving up
    Will I forever be a quitter
    Succumbing to the misery of whatever is placed in front of me...?

    [[She's lecturing us on memory,

    haha good piece of irony

    [[But I can't learn how to stop breathing]]

    [[My mouth gasps for water before my mind can stop it]]
    did you mean "air" in place of "water"?

      Giving up on giving up...good line. Kind of like sick and tired of being sick and tired. I liked the whole write and it was easy to get into. The feeling of not being able to give up was quite inspirational and just made it seem a little uplifting...is that weird...?
    Have a good one and keep writin'

      i like it... the first stanza is tops... it's very... cute.. it reminds me of a girl that means a lot me...

    i think i like it, cause it shows a sence of humor... ya know... parts are said but it's pretty funny too...

    She's lecturing us on memory,
    but I've forgotten most of what she's said

    thats a great line.. it made me laugh... i think with a little more work this could be great

    just try and clear out your thoughts

    give reasons for why you feel like that... this would help a lot in the seconds stanza...

    this is a cool little poem

    on the flipside

      I love this. I found the whole thing to be completely amazing. Your words described me perfectly. There is nothing I don't like about it. I have nothing negative to say. Great job

      The first part, made me chuckle a little, I just got done doing summer psychology yesterday. And it made me kind of giggle. Lol. The end of it was cool. I was different from the beginning, but still good. And for this being some of your begining work, I can only imagine what awesome stuff you have now. Lol.

    1. Be honest.
    2. Try not to give only compliments.
    3. How did it make you feel?
    4. Why did it make you feel that way?
    5. Which parts?
    6. What distracted from the piece?
    7. What was unclear?
    8. What does it remind you of?
    9. How could it be improved?
    10. What would you have done differently?
    11. What was your interpretation of it?
    12. Does it feel original?


    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
