    The flow here is incredible, I couldn't believe I'd already reached the end so I reread the piece about a dozen times. Each time my heart broke a little more. But I feel like the techniques here and the style were all very well used. You had a fantastic rhythm and the way you broke up your stanzas felt perfect.
