    That was really beautiful. The emotions were so strong and it had a really nice flow, 5/5.

    The effects of waves of water or the effects of everyday living? Either one will apply. Great job!

    Hopeless Romantic,

    I like this poem. I like the rhyming and the separated stanzas. I do however believe that it could be structured slightly differently to offer the piece and the readers mind more drama.

    pm me if you like!

    Well done

    And spellbound."

    Sometimes the most awful things can leave one in awe. I liked this. Short, accurate - almost determined. That probably makes no sense, forgive me. The structure of the poem carried your words well; you built a very clear persona of the water, as well as your hopeless yet eventful journey through it. My two concerns in terms of rhythm were:
    a) "And my lungs hardly able to bear" - the flow was a little 'off' - you could potentially replace the 'hardly able' with 'unable'.
    b) "And I drown" - I'm not convinced you need an 'and' here. There is already so much linking of ideas and continuity throughout the poem, perhaps this ultimate statement should stand alone in the limelight?
    Nonetheless, I fine piece. Well done.

    I don't know what it is about drowning that makes it seem like the saddest way to die. suffocation and not being able to breathe has to be a painful way to die. what would make you feel THAT bad?

    Good poem I gave it a 5/5... you honestly can view this in diffrent ways. Just like a lot of peoms you view it how you think you read it. This could be able life, love, just drowning, or whatever and I still love the poem. Keep up the good work and keep on writing
