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


    Why do I make
    These promises to myself?
    That the pieces will finally fit
    That the puzzle will finally be complete
    That we’ll finally be together

    Life is no jigsaw though
    How can I think this way?
    My thoughts are being drained
    Swirling down the drain
    Disappearing forever

    My problems are solved
    Yet they still float around
    Not fully contained
    Just drifting

    Maybe I want to play
    Another game
    But some how
    I can’t stop playing
    This one

      This sounds like it should be sung. Its simplistic but I like it!
    And I like the last stanza the most.

      I'm really sorry I cant give you any constructive criticism really. I think that it's unnecessary to tell us in the description that the "game" is love. It's a common enough anology that most people will get it. And otherwise it makes it a little more to think about. "Not fully contained just drifting" My thoughts are like that mostly. And this presents a problem a lot of people face without being cliché.

      This is great-- you've caught hopelessness, confusion, and exasperation all in one piece, and it flows seamlessly together. The last stanza is my favorite by far.

    I say this all the time, but I am a punctuation person. Everyone uses commas, periods, etc. at their own discretion, but I would like this better with some commas and periods. Your call tho! Good write!
