    Very well done, TJ. Your metaphor transforms the experience from frustration to intrigue, from perplexity to perspicuity.
    First two stanzas. Faced with difficulty, you attempt, as all of us, to make sense of the conflict, to right it, but are frustrated with the results because nothing you do helps and the frustrated reactions simply make things worse.

    Third stanza. You realize there are factors you have not taken into account. You see 'her' side of things and the relative understanding transforms the entire dispute into something new. You begin to comprehend.

    Fourth stanza. When we let go our preconceived & rigid stances, true knowledge gives rise to mutual understanding and acceptance. Feelings are rekindled that never should have been diverted, there is renewal.

    Well did Larry leave me anything to say ? lol

    Like he said I love the metaphor you used here. I really liked how you started off being sad and frustrated and then by the end of the poem you compared love to the puzzle stating once you find it the pieces to your life starts to come together...beautiful

    seriously, well done I enjoyed evey line...

    p.s....I thought the line about the friends advice was a great touch...anyone whose been through a break up or through a hard time knows what its like to have friends try to help you through..excellent

    TJ, this one was amazing. I *loved* the rhymes, so incredibly well penned.

    The first two stanzas felt *so* familiar. And I loved the "happy ending". Great job.
