Every word you say to me Is a knife Drawing a fine line Across my skin. Every time you look at me There’s a sword That twists somewhere Deep within my guts. You’re killing me with your presence But please don’t go. This death is the only one I want. Another random poem from me. I hope you like.

Very good poem! I liked it. Pain is only skin deep, not worth throwing your love away because of it! So sincere. Maybe it is temporary?

Thank you. Pain is always temporary, one way or the other.

I guess so, like when we go to sleep, we should not be feeling pain!

what a powerful poem, but I do not think that I want to trade places with you, I would not want anyone's words to affect me like that.

Thank you. I'm glad you found the poem moving. No... I suppose you wouldn't. I wouldn't either, looking at it from the outside.

Thank you. I used to publish in magazines a lot, but it's been years since then. I'm going to self-publish a book soon just to sell to my friends online and such, but I don't know about having luck with real publishing companies. Good luck to you with your own writing!

Thank you! Anyone can write a poem if they try, I think. Though some people are more talented at it than others, like anything else. I'm sure you have talents too!

Wow... that is one dark poem you got there. Something that is really suitable to someone who just broke up or something like that. What inspired you to write such a poem?
