this is absolutely incredible. i've read some of your other poems; you are an extremely talented writer. i only hope to be half the poet you are, fantastic job. you have a gift. you place words in such an order that its no longer a poem, its a feeling, its an emotion, its tangible. i love the way you wrote this, five stars
