Short but nice, as this poem said what it had to say. Very nice job, keep it up .

Such a strong message in such a short poem, I love it. It makes the reader continue to think of the implications. A great thought!

Oh! How perfectly you summed up those feelings of unworthiness everpresent in relationships. I loved it! And I also loved the bluntness of it. It wasn't flowery, or full of symbolism. It was straight to the point!

Well, it sure wasn't a haiku (5-7-5), but who can scold you for putting an eight-word poem in the haiku section?
Great piece of work, simply pure contrast put into words.

its so deep in such a small peice of work.

I think this has the potential to be a good poem, but there are a couple of things worth mentioning about it:
- It's not really a haiku; I guess that just means it's misfiled, but yeah. A haiku is made of 3 lines with a syllable pattern of 5-7-5 (I hear it's a bit of a different concept in Japanese, but not speaking the language, I don't understand it). A haiku is not just a short poem.
- There's not much to this poem. I don't mean in length; a short poem can say a lot. However, there are only two key words in this poem: "beauty" and "ugliness". Both of these are abstract words, and as such don't convey anything specific to the audience. After all, beauty and ugliness mean different things to different people. I like the idea, though; if you expanded it, it would be an excellent poem. I hope I didn't sound too harsh.

Damn that's so powerfully sad.

Ah, another haiku.. I like it, straight to the point. Awwhh I know how you feel if this is coming from experience.

Damn...this Haiku rocks! I felt power in your words, though there were few. Your pen is your sword, so run with scissors! I don't know what that means. I just made it up right now. See? THAT'S how much I like this poem. It inspired me right away.

I think that this was wonderfully written, and the comparison was nicely pulled off, though I personally don't think that you're ugly :) Keep up the wonderful work. Hasta luego.
G-Unit: I think you're beautiful on the inside. Don't worry what's on the outside. Read my Shadows of Darkness. I'm on chibichocobo's favorite list.
