117 (who?)
There’s a tear between each smile and a fracture on my heart
And a thousand feelings breaking me and tearing me apart
Knowing when it’s over I may lose my sanity
Embrace the mess I am and the storm inside of me

In the dark I have a chance to fight away my problems
To ignore them all away instead of trying to solve them

All I saw when I looked back was a mass of insecurity
Laying waste to who I am and ripping at the seam
Lowering my already non-existent self-esteem

And I couldn’t help admitting I’m a self-made failure
Walking a broken path as a second-hand savior
And it all adds up to nothing; me in a nutshell
Yanking on the chain that tethers me to hell…
It's nothing... It's everything...

Prettyflour here on behalf of :iconpoeticalcondition: with the critique you requested.


I am a big fan of this form, and having tried writing in this style, I know how difficult it can be to come up with a successful poem. Having said that, I think you did a wonderful job with this!


Your rhyming works well and the flow of the piece is very nice. It was easily readable and understandable.  Also, your poem conjures up some great emotion right from the start. Your first sentence really pulled me in- made me want to keep reading and has awesome imagery. All of this continues throughout the entire poem, and your last line finishes with a sense of finality and yet…your use of ellipses brings of a sense of things left to be said. 


Overall, I enjoyed this and have no constructive criticism to offer. Well done!
