This brought tears to my eyes because as with your other poems it's raw, emotional and filled with complete honesty from your heart. It's gripping from start to finish which is how poetry (well any writing) should be.
1/ Absolutely loved this. The imagery is fantastic and I imagine that you all wish for it to end but know that it will be some time before it does, unfortunately which is why you'll be collecting your bones or is that because of what's going on around you.
2/ This touched my heart and the raw emotion within it brought tears to my eyes.
3/ Absolutely beautiful ending because even though you have nothing left in the end of this you have (I think) that special someone which is sometimes all you need, if its true, honest love.
Take care and o wish you all the best,

Your poetry is always amazing. This is no different, there's not much else to comment as what's been said about this poem pretty much covers it, other than to say nominated.
Just wonderfully written & lets the mind see each element.

Abed has blown PnQers off their feet so many times, and this is no let down. The diction and flow are gorgeous and the story that the author is telling captivates those who come across these words. So much generous emotion and lovely tone oozes from every line of this beautiful piece. Even after reading this a handful of times, all that came to mind at the end was another way to call this beautiful. With hope and love and complete mastery of expressing the profound, Abed continues to amaze his PnQ home.
