Sticks and Stones

by Spirit   Jan 22, 2009

Sticks and stones
may break my bones,
but what "may" a bullet do?

May hit the head
of my lover in bed
and shatter my heart in two

May take away
love none could sway
and ruin a perfect past

May rip apart
the angel's heart
and tear us apart at last

May kill the dream
of a love redeemed
then leave me here alone

For gone's my bliss
and I'll tell you this
It hurts more than sticks or stones

    Good poem. I believe you have lots of emotion in it. I just feel the flow is off on the second and last stanzas, you seem to force the flow a little. Also, "and ruin a perfect past" doesn't seem to make sense, but that might be just me. Overall, good.

    Peace and prosperity,
