Overall Rating: Not Rated

This writing has not yet been rated and therefore this information is not yet available.
Heart torn, dreams shattered, hopes dashed. Despair and loneliness slowly seeping in. Chest pain, brain numb, anger rising Lies and half truths told, seemingly endless. Bitter, hate, lashing outward to you. You feel bad but not as much as I. You swore you would be there, And you're not. You said nothing would get in the way, Yet... It did. We made a promise, a pact, a contract, Now you have cancelled. You say sorry like its nothing at all, You are slowly crushing my spirt. You never come when you say, And this is no different. You say you're my friend But Im not sure that's true. Plans useless, dates gutted, timing unstoppable. Why do I bother sitting around waiting? Stupidly, ignorant, foolish, pathetic too. This is me and what I have always done. Things have to change and to that I say... NO MORE!

Depending on the writing type, give your opinion on the overall plot if it is a story, or the concept of the writing if it is abstract such as a poem. Does it seem to make sense, strike a chord with you or seem a well chosen concept? Did the author stick to the concept or did they change mid-thought?
Did the author use words and descriptions that allowed you to visualize the scenes portrayed in the writing? Did the feelings of the work stir your emotions as you read it?
Were the words spelled correctly? Was proper punctuation and grammar used? Could you easily understand sentences or did you have to re-read lines several times to understand what was meant?
Depending on the writing type, how did the writing flow? If it's a story, did it have a smooth, easy to follow flow? Did the flow of events make sense? If it's poetry, did the author stick with the syllable flow for that writing type? Did the lines rhyme properly if a rhyming device was used?
Did the author use the same words over and over or did they use a broad vocabulary to get their exact point across? Could better wording be chosen then what they have used?

    • Great imagery here. The anger in the last verse is really well presented.
