Very strong write Jo, yes children must be free but a caring parent will guide them gently into a good way of living.

Never smile again
smallest_stars said:

Just a beautiful way to describe pain from love and I love this line:

“Broken vase against fragile walls”

It’s one of those lines that I kick myself for not thinking of to write!

Good poem!

Never smile again
Fay Slimm said:

The sadness of break-up is in every line and really touches the heart with each well-chosen repetition. One to belong in my faves. Joe.

Famous poet
Fay Slimm said:

Ah - a plain truth enfolded in this sensitive message dear Joe - - drams belong to the home and cannot be in any way called battles which on the killing field can devastate body, mind and soul. Well said indeed..

Famous poet
Lorna said:

This cuts to the chase about what war really is........... I have read so many first hand books by soldiers of WWII and Vietnam....... my admiration for what the poor young soldiers have to cope with and my disdain for the politicians that push them into it is enormous...... good one....

Cut throat
Jamie said:

\"I\'m more blood than skin
\"Every surface area is a sin\"
I also find this profoundly expressive, suggesting you have scarred yourself extensively which is a sort of self inflicted penance for not being worthy only to feel even less worthy for having committed such a crime against yourself, and all because of having forgotten that the pain that started it all wasn\'t even your sin, but a sin against you; and not knowing that even the ugliest violations could never diminish the value of your precious beauty!

Cut throat
Jamie said:

But the saddest part, therefore the best, because it\'s a sad poem, not because sadness is best...
\"I\'m nobody\'s princess
Have no one to hold me up\"
I found it instantly and infinitely lonely.

Cut throat
Jamie said:

\"Ready to cut a smile in\" That is beautifully gruesome! Gruesomely Beautiful!

This reminds me of a guy I really liked, when I was younger .
Unfortunately, he liked the “ perfect model” type .
Which I never was.
I used to sometimes wish I could be like her.
Then he would like me.
Nice write:)

A fine write Jo. We\'re all \'snowflakes\' now it seems - genteel, over-sensitive, etc.

Silent words
yellowrose said:

\'\' if the good i need is dead to me\'\' this says a lot jo , its like you are feeling like nothing is meant to get better/ that or you are not allowed anything good. such an expresseive write . it speaks to me of a girl , who even when she writes poetry .. she feels nothing but emptiness?

tepo said:

\" I want to know how long you\'ll last \"
Almost knowing it will end before it\'s begun
But when
And so much more expressed
Great write

My God!
This broke my heart reading it!
It’s one of the most pain filled poems I’ve ever read.
It is an amazing write.
You made me feel all of the words in your poem, even though, I can’t personally relate.
Thank you for sharing

Wow - love these lines:

Oh look 10 minutes passed by I hadn\'t noticed
I\'m as dead to the world as God is to the atheist
