Hello _ I'm practising the art of concrit, and so I try.

This poem is a very true poem about Valentine's Day - I certainly hate "lets make single people feel like shit day" with a passion. Your line "This single out the singles day," is very true and very well written. However, I think that the poem is mostly in meter, except where you have broken it, for example:

"This single out the singles day,

this way to waste away."

The rest of the stanza was in meter so it spoils the flow of the poem. However, great job and keep writing _

Oh! A very good poem. I really like how you didnt just say "I hate valentines day" over and over. Very good :) I can relate to the hatred of valentines day. I am in a relationship, but I still think Valentines day is stupid and too uh..."halmarky".

I get the "This single out the singles day" line. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesnt it mean that this holiday singles out the people who arent in relationships?

Anway, great poem. I really enjoyed it.

Though I don't share the same sentiment as the poem, I liked its meter and wording anyway. The phrase that made me feel the burn was "Single out the singles day"-it really DOES feel like that, doesn't it? I mean, I myself don't mind anymore, but I could remember the time when I totally hated VD. I was expecting the word "diabetes" to somehow be in there for some reason. LOLOL

You're hardly alone in hating valentine's. I don't think I understand the line "This single out the singles day," but it's a very relatable poem. Keep up the great work.
