    I like the flow in this, it's really sad but also pretty, in a way. Nicely penned :)

    I keep reading this. This is my favorite piece that you've ever written. You & I are this entire poem. Seriously just like...you have this short choppy style of writing that kicks serious butt.

    Hence why you're my best friend. I only like you for your poetry and the food at your house! lol jk.

    This is still in the nominations. It needs more recognition.

      Honestly, I wrote it based off a comment you made on the phone. "Girls like us, with alcoholics as parents, really shouldn't drink."

    I agree with Linda, this does needs more recognition.

    I loved the overall sombre tone to this. I noticed that you encorporated the eating disorder, and like Tony said really stuck the ending.

    "Girls like us,
    no need to fear.
    Fix your problems
    with a case of beer."

    ^ This reminds me of my best friend. I'm really glad I read this piece, it reminds me of something she'd write for me (:

    Great Job!

    First off, I envy you for having Linda right by you, all the time. She is one awesome girl, and judging from this and her comments, you are too.

    I can relate to some aspects of this, in fact, it hit me hard reading this, the flow was absolutely flawless, and the emotion in here was evident, it came from your heart, and you poured yourself into it, without it becoming just a jumble of emotions, it really is a masterpiece.

    One of the most flawless poems I have read in a long time, with the flow and tone.
    Deserves to be recognised for sure.
