Deeply saddening, but intricately described.

well, it made me cry. that awkward surprised crying when you pretend you're only this way because you have a cold.

aw, thats really sweet. to me the middle part seemed a bit rushed, but it could have just been the way i was reading it. i really loved the ending tho. i've often thought about what i would tell MY friends if i got cancer. so yeah... great poem.

Wow, that is amazing. So heartbreaking. I can definitely relate to this, as my mom had cancer a few years ago. I love the verb 'smudging.' I think it's a great action verb. I also like the image of paper thin hands (works well with cancer imagery) and cold explanations pouring out of the girl's mouth. Just beautiful.

This struck home dear citrus, a friend of mine in high school had cancer and he passed away a few months later.
It was one of the saddest experiences of my life, and this poem just... just wow.
Even though it was in a chicks POV... I took it as his for a few moments.
It was tragic and beautiful of course because your writing has great imagery. I Liked it alot.
Write on as LPC would say!

this gave me chills. striking, so so sad. i love the way you put this together with only subtle observances, not harsh point-blank words. the plastic part was my personal favorite. i love the image i get from that. great poem, & glad you're back.

I know what it's like to be on the recieveing end of that... my mom's best friend has cancer, and it never really hit me until I saw her when she lost all her hair...
It's a horrible disease, but you wrote it well. Great job.

"she had cancer."

superb. your enjambment of the lines makes the poem seem like it is set in a scenario where everything is coming too fast-perfect for this poem.
