Poem Commentary

It is that obvious this is about a breakup? Well, not really a breakup...it's a complicated story. Please don't judge this one, I know it's not my best. It's one of those poems that doesn't have to sound exactly right; the emotion takes care of everything.

Do I Regret You?

Everything reminds me of you,
a look, a song, a word.
And when I think of the time we shared
the whole thing seems absurd;
That I could have been
so hopelessly shamefully blind.
Your lies that you told
were a dagger from behind,
plunged into my back,
your poison spread.
How could I have so badly
let go of my head?
Let you run away laughing,
my heart in your hands;
for you to break into pieces
and pull at the strands.
You knew how I felt,
said you felt the same way,
but if you did
then how could you betray?
My naive trust
that I put in you.
How much of what
you told me was untrue?
Lie after lie
I forgave your transgressions,
yet you turned mine on me
and used them as weapons.
I laid my heart and soul
on the line for your judgement.
Now all that's left of my heart
are minuscule remnants.
And although you'll never read
this out pour of emotion,
of my heartbreak you'll have no notion,
it feels better to put
paper to pen,
the feelings for you
I have tried to keep in.
So let this be a lesson to all
If you're cascading into love,
enjoy the fall.

That isn't love kido =( Love is a mutual feeling between two people. Idk what to call it, but that isn't love. I'd like to kick the crap out of whomever made you feel like this though. You are a beautiful woman, just like I am, and you deserve the absolute best that life can give. You'll find your Mr. Right one day, I promise =)

Very Nice, the emotions within this piece are shinning away like a bright light in the sky. Keep shinning that light...keep up the good work...and I shall give you 10 for excellence.

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
