Do you think...

Jozef Milko 1960 (Bratislav)



Did I do it this crime?

Do you think
Did I kill our dreams?

Do you think
Did I break your heart?

Do you think
Really?

You went away
the time is over

Why do yours tears so hurt me?

    Wow, what a compelling and emotional poem! The way you express your thoughts and feelings in this piece is truly moving. Your use of rhetorical questions adds a deep layer of introspection that makes the reader question their own emotions too. I love the final line about the tears, it really hits home.

    If there was one suggestion I could make, it would be to perhaps add some more descriptive details to the poem. What were your dreams? How did you break their heart? Adding more specific details would add more layers to the poem and make it even more impactful.

    Overall, great job! I look forward to reading more from you in the future.

    Some serious thinking sprees murder the imaginings of a hopeful heart. Be careful. Do not be a “dampener”.

    This is powerful. Emotions are intertwined, in love and in loss.
