Always



I’ve cried a thousand tears
For who, for you
For those who will never for me
Reasons to live
Reason to die
A search for a love
A sliver of hope
Reaching out
Trying to move on
Continued life
Not the same course
A dream to be me
Not knowing who that is
You are my hope
Someday you may care
Lost in emotion
An atypical course
You were my dream
Now I am lost to you
Now my fear
Never to return
My lost life
Your beginning
My fate
Your tool
Lost without you
Love you always

    Wow, this 'Always' poem is very moving and emotional. The use of repetition and contrasting phrases really captures the feeling of being lost and searching for hope. Your writing style is beautiful and the flow of the poem is impeccable. It's clear that you put a lot of thought and effort into every line.

    As for some improvement suggestions, perhaps adding some concrete imagery or sensory details could create a stronger connection between your words and the reader. Additionally, consider varying the length and structure of your lines to keep the poem more dynamic and interesting. But overall, this is a powerful and heartfelt piece that resonates deeply. Keep up the great work!

    There are too many deviations in this. It happens in the plural addressing many, and it happens in the singular addressing one. it asks who would do for him or her and it tells he or she will do for that one. All of this makes the poem have no center and one is not sure what the poem is all about.
    Try to be more focus on one subject or situation then develop the poem accordingly.

      Thank you for the insight and feedback. I am working on developing better delivery. With that said when I was taught I was encouraged to write with the emotion and feeling of the moment. Personally I know what I was feeling at the time and identify with those feelings when I read it. Not knowing what the poem is about? That’s hard for me to equate. I was also taught to not look for actual “meanings”. Poems are interpreted differently by everyone, and I relate to a persons raw state of mind and openness rather than structure. Please don’t let me put you off. I am entirely flattered that someone even took the time to read my material. Let alone offer completely valid advice and critique.
