Don’t bother with your words of praise; I know your love isn’t meant for me. Our souls fuse together up in the ether, But our Earthly bodies aren’t meant to be. I can’t tell you that I need you- The way your Earth balances my Air, The way you raise me up and bring me down With one incendiary stare. Set my flesh on fire, Put a knife against my skin, Make me forget the feeling, Then turn your back on me again. I can’t tell you that I want you, So I’ll pour it out in the ways I’m allowed, But my cup will soon run empty, Like rain draining from a cloud. I’d stand in the rain and wait for you If I thought you’d wait for me. I’d give you hints and clues and signs In hopes that one day you’d see, but I can’t tell you that I love you; The wind knocks the air from my lungs. The words are too much for me to say, And the storm has only just begun.

Rate This Submission

Please take the time to rate this writing once you have read it. Our ratings system allows people to know both how popular the writing is, and how well the general populous of the site thinks it is written. This also allows the writer to have feedback about their writing, so they know if they need to improve their technique, or if they're on the right track.

The system allows you to vote on several aspects on the writing. Refer to the help text below each aspect for an explanation. Consider the different aspects carefully, and submit your vote using this form. It will be instantly weighted with the other votes given.

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?
