She stands there
in the center
She walks
by herself
She talks
to the four walls
She cries
all alone

Even when you face a difficult moment and fall a little bit behind, as if you’re doing a long jump, wouldn’t you have a longer runway to be able to jump further?

It is such a short poem, yet so powerful. For me, personally, it was a very weird feeling when reading this - but in a good way. With just those 8 lines, I understood. I felt and understood exactly what your words were saying. And that, I feel like, is magical.

Stunning. I love how it is straight to the point!

For starters, it is a great poem, but if you want to make it better make sure it has more detail, on how she is feeling. But other than that this is amazing.

@AntonioB915 poetry isn't about the length, it's about the meaning and I just felt more from this than a 300 page book I just finished reading. I rest my case

I loved this. It is so deep. And the length does not matter, it is the words that count. You did an amazing job on this I loved it. This is pure gold. The picture you provided also goes very well with your poem. Don't listen to any negative people, your poem was awesome.

Why so short, did you not think of anything else, like I mean you have a good meaning, don’t get me wrong, but there’s no way this is the whole thing, is this like... a snippet?
