    A trip to the mall
    is always a good
    choice when she
    is feeling low
    on self esteem.

    She doesn't mind
    the traffic or that all
    the near spaces
    are already taken.
    She is not bothered
    by the crowds

    Doors locked?
    Windows up?
    Lights off?
    Brake set?

    Check them
    and then
    let go.

    The dark corner
    of a parking lot
    is a good place
    to cry

      Hi there

    I thought this was an intriguing piece of poetry for sure...i like the twist, i too was lead to believe at first it was about OCD.

    I think maybe it could be a little longer, but that's just my humble opinion. As it stands it's still a good poem.

      Wow, you got me there! Didn't expect the punch line at all, as a matter of fact, i wondered where you were going to go...nicely done.

    Stanza two really emphasizes the "switched-off" feelings, as nothing worries her, even stuff that should, driving automaton-like.

    Just as a thought, I figured you could keep your "auto" theme going by having her tears mingle with the oil stains on the car park asphalt...or maybe not, it was just a thought that hit me.

    Really well done, I liked this a lot.

    be happy

      I was genuinly surprised at the twist of this piece as I suppose was intended. You did a very nice job of setting it up and I was touched by the sadness it envoked. Nothing to say about changing anything, it stands on it's own and it's brevity works well. I think my wife goes to the mall when she's not feeling well but instead of 'crying' she 'buying'. Nice work! Diamond Dan
