Its a sad poem and well written. I don't like your topic area simply because its been very over done in the past. Also deriving your title from the last line can sometimes ruin the ending. It was a good job, you did it without forcing any rhymes which is really hard in that sort of structure. A good job, keep writing and best of luck.
Very well written, Mom. I like the part where the father kicks her lifeless body, it adds a boost of hatred toward the character...if that makes any sense. I guess what I'm saying is it shows that the father never cared.
I do think that in this line:
"But innocence was lost long ago."
that you should change it to "But innocence was stolen long ago". It flows much better and adds an element of intensity, rather than her innocence just being lost it was stolen.
Anyway, just a suggestion. Keep it up.
Oh and don't change the title. It's awesome!
I don't think that you need to change the category or anything. Although this type of poem is over done on this site, yours is one to be really proud of.
The rhyme scheme alone is intimidating. It's so hard to do an abab rhyme scheme without it feeling forced. Okay, I'm done now :)
A Chilling Poem.. Very Emotive and Amazing, and Just Scary. and Sad. i dont know who gave it less than a 5.. the only thing i could find not perfect was the use of dirty twice in one line, Lol. but truly very sad poem..
