Poetry is something truthfully unique and special, the power in the messages that it conveys and the heart and passion contracted into what is typically the size of a paragraph. So much meaning, so many thoughts encrypted on such a small space, and with an even deeper meaning often hidden beneath the surface waiting to be discovered and heard. As basic a comparison, it may be, poetry reminds me of music. No matter the length, music can be used to portray a message, not only within its lyrics but as well in it's style and rhythm, similar to how poetry can convey a message not just within its words but in its tone and order. I honestly think you portray all your thoughts here quite well, they are clear and relatable, concise but containing just the right amount of depth that urged me to peer back toward each distinct poem. They are all so different, yet convey a singular story, which I suppose would be the only natural. I originally didn't even know how I would rate or review this, or even if I would. Thoughts and memories are just so powerful and intricate, it seems unfair to me to give any particular one a rating; to just label, this collection seemed rather disrespectful to my opinions toward these poems. Then I thought that to not rate it either would seem equally treacherous, so I gave it the highest rating I could. Still, I believe the rating for any truly heartfelt story should be much more than five simplistic stars, which you indefinitely deserve. Sorry about how unnecessarily long this statement was but then again, I don't think any amount of words can accurately review this; good day.

My personal opinion:

This is certainly a tad bit of a unique and intricate experience, something that can be lightly represented as rather simple but as well something that carries a side-dimension of perspective depth and a follow-through of good set-up mystery, which I believe is personally a great contribution to any short story of this sort. Sure, it has a few minor errors and could be just a little more efficient in its dialogue and build-up of suspense (though it is quite fine based upon its intentional length), but that is nothing to carry much fault or criticism. So, all in all, you do quite a fine job representing what this was supposed to be and having quite the effective ending, with nothing more to be said.
