This is about the love of my life Adam and how when he left for his hockey team, 6 hours away I couldn't take it. I'm also hoping for anything to make it better and maybe a better title.


All the times we shared together,
those memories will be forever.
But now you leave me all alone.
By myself, to face the unknown.
No longer are you close to hold my hand.
Without you my life is so bland.
Everytime I think about you i cry.
It feels like I want to die.
I don't want to do that to you,
I don't want to put you through
All the pain that would come from inside.
You, wishing, I could've been your bride
So come back, you're breaking my heart
I can't stand when we're apart

  You seemed to be focusing more on the rhyming than the actual poem...perhaps, that was just me.... I found this had much experience with it.

  This is completely and utterly...wonderful. Although I am supposed to give some sort of critique, I cannot do so because I absolutely fell in love with this piece. Lately I feel the same way...though it is kind of strange to say all these things as though he released you...if he's just on the hockey team, doesn't he call you and stuff....?

Anyway, though I totally went off on a tangent, I must say again how much I loved this and how much I can definitely relate.

Spectacular work.

  "So come back, you're breaking my heart
I can't stand when we're apart"

Those lines are my favorite, although I love the whole thing.
It's so sad. I think the simplicity (thats a word, right?) brings out the feelings even more than it would if you used a bunch of overrated metaphors and stuff. It went straight from your heart to the screen and thats what makes it so great.
As always, beautifully done

  Well, now that I've finally found out how to read and compliment on other people's poetry, here I am. Firstly, I wanted to say that what has been said about the emotion you delivered through your poem was correct. The words you used and when you used them really brought out just how much being apart from someone you love can hurt. Though, because I am as picky as I am, there is one line that seemed rather forced - for the reason that it jumped from holding his hand, to a life so bland...

No longer are you close to hold my hand.
Without you my life is so bland.

It's a really good rhyme and everything, but I would have liked to see you go on with the one subject of an empty hand, rather than skip a whole area. I don't know if that makes sense to you, but I'm trying to be as clear as I can - and being that I am no more experienced than you, it's rather hard.
All in all though, I really liked it. Mike had said that the rhyme scheme made him want to tap his feet - which was the wrong emotion - however I personally am more pulled in when there's a rhythm for me to read to. So I guess that's a personal opinion, one which you should probably give some thought to. I hope to see lots more from you though, as I do like your style. Keep up the good work :).

  This poem is full of emotion but the rhyme scheem ruins alot of it. I found myself wanti ng to tap my foot because of the rhyme scheem and that is obviously not what you meant for this poem to do. I am sorry but i do not think this poem meets the standards that I am looking for on this site.

  Awww! This is a very sweet poem. You tell such a simple little story of longing, and you get that feeling of longing across very well with your words. The rhyme here isnt overly complex but doesnt really need to be. It sucks when the person you love goes away. Whether it be for hours or days or forever, those feelings that you have described very well are there and they are difficult to deal with. I like the simplicity here. It is a very sweet and heartfelt poem. Very good write. Take care.

  Very simple, very honest. I really liked this one...particularly the unselfishness contained in it...

Everytime I think about you i cry.
It feels like I want to die.
I don't want to do that to you,
I don't want to put you through
All the pain that would come from inside

It shows how bad you hurt, but more than anything else, you don't want him to hurt either. That's awesome that you care enough to think of his feelings, while yours are all over the place. There aren't a lot of people, particularly younger ones, that would be able to be that way. You write some heartfelt stuff! Great job!

  Heartfelt, though you could add some things that would make the poem unique, more personal, because the subject (and some rhymes) are much too hackneyed. If you could take your time to harness your emotions, this could still be redeemed, no doubt.

Hasten not. Good luck! :)

  I liked it but it seems like you kind of tried too hard to rhyme words, you need to remember not all poems need to rhyme and in fact most great poems don't.
