    At first, I was hesitant to nominate this for the contest because of the lack of imagery, of metaphors and many other poetic stuffs, but the raw emotions are just too strong, it hit me right straight to the core! Your username really speaks a lot in regards to this poem. I love how this is dedicated to your bestfriend, because a lot times friendship is overlooked and not chosen over romantic love. I love how you started stating things about yourself, then going on with what you have been through together, the things you enumerated, for me, is something that really drew me to this poem, I love when someone specifies things like those, going on from something usual to something unusual. The things you talk about really pinch my heart, but at the same time, as heartbreaking as they are, I find warmth in them. I just love every sentence in this piece, every line makes me say, 'Wow, that's great' plus the emotions packed in them. Am just not fond of the '<3 and XOXO' in the end, and the title is kinda weak for a powerful and emotional poem like this. Well, I can go on and on about the things you talked about in the poem and say how much I adore you, your strength, your bestfriend, and the friendship and the love of the two of you. I'll keep both of you in my prayers. Hope everything will go well for the both of you. <3
