I couldn't find the right words to say how I felt about my fiancée until I read this poem. It said everything I was trying to say and more.

It's 12:35am when I'm reading this. Your poem made me bawl my eyes out. I'm 20 years old and have a little girl. I've been using cocaine for almost 3 years now and am currently not with my daughter. I'm not going to skip out on her life even though I feel like I might. My life when I was growing up was horrible. No mom, no dad around. All the people in my family are basically drug addicts. I also just came to know that I have Bipolar Depression. Your poem put some light on the reality of what I'm doing...in a good way. I hope you get clean one day to see your daughter. Even if you're in no shape to care for her, it doesn't mean you can't be her angel from a distance. Everything in this world is a battle in and out, but I believe we have the ability to change that no matter what.
I know, hon. It feels like drinking gasoline then swallowing the match. I was just working on my car and dad's truck 3 weeks ago, and then he had a stroke. He was going down to have his MRI, and that's when they announced code blue. They worked on him an hour but never could get a pulse back. My mother had to be sat in a wheelchair because she could barely stand or breathe, and I had to go in and tell them to stop CPR. They had already punctured a lung from the chest compressions and it was filling with blood. I still don't know how I found the strength to do that. He died November 13.
A lot of people are treated differently because they look different or act different .A lot of people treat my friends and me differently because we are different and unusual.
I lost my husband of 55 years. We did everything together. I have no family and very few friends that want to be bothered with me. I love Jesus and pray all the time and ask him to please take me home. I am so lonely, sad, and lost. I don't know what to do with myself. I need God's help, and I just don't know how to ask for it. I am blessed by God. I have a roof over my head and food to eat and I am thankful but so sad. I am running out of tears.
Wow...the lines are awesome. The poet used wonderful poetic devices and has touched my soul. These lines have drenched me in their beauty, from crown of my head to heel of my toe. This is really awesome.
I succumb to the poem, as well as the poet who has written it. It makes me feel like being in love, and "a good lady with a pure heart is really scarce (rare)."
So touched by your poem. You're really a true lover.
This poem reminds me of the time when my girlfriend and I had the same situation. Really an awesome poem.
Robert, my heart breaks for you. Such a loss. I hope you are able to see a therapist to help you through your grief. Or good friends who you are able to speak to and share your feelings with. My 23 year old son took his life this spring. The pain is incredible and so difficult to deal with. I know I will never be the same. But I believe there will be a new normal. Stay strong. Be good and patient with yourself.
