How the hell can I make
See that everything you say
Everything you do
Hurts me
And although I’m not perfect
And I am trying
And trying
To find some sense of
But you’re making it
Pretty damn difficult
And I realize there’s
I can say to get through to you
Because nothing has worked yet
And all I want is
Feel loved
Feel intelligent
Feel important
But you have taken that
All away from

Thank you for submitting to the Critique Folder at :iconwriters--club:!

You had fantastic use of enjambment and white space here! :nod: It was very crafty to create a sentence along the side and still have the words correspond with the ending lines of the stanzas. It’s a very thoughtful and crafty method.


One thing that could make the language in the poem a little more interesting would be to switch up your words a little bit, especially in the end. Repeating the word feel does get a point across, but a little more variation to the words you used could be interesting. Perhaps something like experience love, feel important, and so on. :nod:


Nevertheless, keep up the good work!

You did it beutifully. I really like the idea with what you did with the words.
