Wrong answer on this test,
The test of life...
X me knife,
Exist in me death,
Do not exist....
Do not punish...
My love for you...
Exist for me....
Exist in me love,
Exist in me...
| It's interesting... the title drew me to it to be honest. But, overall I have to agree with your description of it - "It kind of sucks" about sums it up there.|
I didn't really like it at all and found the content to be repetitive and overused throughout this genre of writing. In all there was a lack of content, I found that there was nothing really here in this poem to think about, which I found disappointing.
Not one of your best pieces, but you do have some greats ^_^

I have to agree with Alia with her comment on the repetition and unnecessary usage of ellipses.. it didn't work for me either. |
Life, knife, death, blood, dead, pain, punish, love - too many words that have been overkilled already. And you managed to shove it all in one poem.
But this is just my sh.itty opinion. I think you could expand upon this with metaphors and allusions in mind to transform this piece into something with a bit more 'oomph' to it, don't you think?
Perhaps it's just the subject matter that gets to me. I've seen too many poems like this. And it's depressing, which is the feeling you wanted to invoke. So that worked out. But yea.

It is a good expression of your feelings and how someone in your life can make all the difference in how you feel about yourself and your life. Love is a powerful thing and can give you strength when otherwise you wouldnt have the strength. Love is something we should all experience and appreciate. This poem really has a lot of deep emotions felt with your words. I dont think this sucks. This is good. Take care.|
