cardiac insomniac chapter 1 . 7/13/2013
For such a short poem, it has incredible momentum. The last line isn't a "BOOM" moment, but a quiet "oh" moment, and I think that says a like. A really special piece.

I can relate to you in this! :D
Angel's Amulet chapter 1 . 6/1/2011
You're not the only one who feels this way. Sometimes I feel the same way as you do. Beautifully expressed poem despite the fact it was short and to the point essentially.

I'll be turning 24 this November so I know what you mean.

Anyway great poem!

Too lazy to log

I liked this. It was short, sweet, and to the point. But the exclamation mark after the 'Yea' kind of took away from the feel of the poem. Also, the word 'Yea' can be seen to sound like 'Yay.' For clarification purposes, I suggest you put an h on the end, so it looks like the more conventional, 'Yeah'.

I love the idea you have here. Keep up the good work.

so simple, so short, and yet so utterly powerful... i feel like this all the time, from crushes to finding my place in the world... we know what we want. we believe we should have it. but we're so afraid of failure, we don't try. wonderful work there.

Haha. The sad truth. I definitely can't say I can relate age-wise, but I sure can as a person.

But yeah. Like others have said, it's not too formal, but it works the way it is.

Really interesting poem. I definitely know that feeling. I like the format of the poem, it's not very formal but that seems to fit with what it is about.
