Chapter 1

Dear Last
How are you?
It's one of those days
Where the abuse does not matter.

Dear Last
I crave for you
Like an addict
Craves for his dose
A babe for its mother.

Dear Last
What was I again?
Worthless.
(But I worked like crazy!)
A horrible housewife.
(But a great cook.)
Too fat?
(Yes but it didn't matter at first.)

Dear Last
Those words do not seem to matter
Tonight.
For I'd drop everything once more
For one more kiss from you.

Dear Last
I hate myself for this addiction
I'll never let anyone
Invoke such feelings again.
You took my last heart.

Dear Last
Tomorrow I'll be ok.
The strong, powerful me.
That was born from that abuse
Will bury the need once again.
Thank God
You're the Last.

preety_lady_serenity: I really liked the poem. It created this picture of a baroque style cafe that you kind of enter it to feel relaxed and yet you feel trapped due to outside circumstances.I especially loved the writing style, If one looks at it, it does look like a birdcage which is an excellent image to fit the po...

Alex Rushmer: Honestly, poetry is not really my thing, and I don't have a lot of feedback that I can give. However, I thought that this was written powerfully in a way that affects the reader. Just don't mistake depressing for being the same as deep. You can have one without the other. This is only my opinion,...

Laraine Smith: In addition to being humorous, this story is visual! This is also a beautiful story. Keep up the great work! :)

novicemaster: The imagery in this prose poem is glorious. I love the way you manipulate words. You seem to have harnessed them to bend to your every whim. The slightly archaic ones like "whilst" make this resemble a fairytale. The entire idea of a prose poem is brilliant. I didn't get the ending at first, but ...

CalvinPeat: This is a great concept, and you've done a largely excellent job of capturing the voice of Mal.You convey Mal's inner struggle well. Perhaps, though, you could reflect the hope in verses 13-17 of Psalm 90 a bit more. A suggestion: in the current version, Mal seems to be losing hope in the idea of...

Laraine Smith: My only suggestion on the grammar is to use www.grammarcheck.net. I have it bookmarked on Google Chrome. I see myself in the determination in this beautiful story! I have Cerebral Palsy, and I have dreams that I have been working hard for, too! The humor made me laugh!

WaywardKnight3: I liked this poem overall. It brought up a lot of thoughts to me about our place in the world and the place of the things around us. Plus I am proud to be of Scando lineage and perhaps that has a part to play in my enjoyment. Either way good work.
