Reviews for Used Like Last Night's Pizza Boxes and Beer Bottle

Having been used by somebody I blindly loved, I can relate to the feelings of hurt and anger that you so appropriately portrayed in this poem. Once again you have shown an incredible talent for captivating your audience and clearly expressing thoughts and emotions into easily understandable words.

The title intrigued me from the start – It's a good simile that I can imagine, but is no way overused.

Poetry isn't my forte, but I always leave the best review I can.

It was a good opening line, I thought, that was simple, and, well... sad. It really set the tone of the poem.

Another thing I liked about this was the repetition of:


So used”

It really conveys the idea that it's just going round and round your head.

I like the turning point in the poem, where towards the end it gets stronger.

“Because being used

Doesn't mean I've lost”


The entire poem ran really smoothly, although it did feel like a stream of consciousness, but I don't think there's anything wrong with that. The last line didn't quite fit though. I think it's because it's not the right use of the word 'ridden'. I think it'd make more sense if you used 'rid':

“It means I'm rid of you.”

All in all, not a bad poem, but I can't say I have much of an opinion on the matter, but anyway I liked it. I enjoyed reading it, and you have my sympathy. :(
