the place where I go desperately and anxiously
The place where I walk oddly and shoeless
Because my toes feel uncomfortable
when they feel the cold floor

The place where I violently and abruptly release my insanity, my craziness,my twisted unknown artistry

Where my hair raises up
because of the goosebumps
Because of my frosty,twisted and dark imagination

It's the place where I wake up at 2 am to write what the sleepy morning whispers me

This place is mine
This place is my precious
It's my well preserved iron trunk

We wouldn't ask a rose that grew from the concrete for having damaged petals; in turn we'd all celebrate its tenacity, we'd all love tz will to reach the sun well we are the roses n these are my damaged petals don't ask me why thank God and ask me how

Good job! The line "my twisted artistry" was simply epic. Keep posting :)

Very nice (: As posted below, I like the sort of mystery to it. "My twisted unknown artistry" is probably my favorite line. 

However at "This place is my precious" I got a sudden vision of Gollum from Lord of the Rings XD So that sort of interupted my enjoyment of the poem temporarily. But only slightly -- intentional or not I enjoyed the reference XD

In all, well done. However, I did feel a slight lacking. It moves slowly at the beginning, entire stanzas given to description and then an abruptness. Sometimes abruptness works, but for me it didn't in this case.

So -- it's good and has potential to be even better

"There’s no such thing as true love, just spurts of insanity—falling over and over again, thinking that won’t happen to me"

I love how mysterious this poem is, its kind of dark and secretive. I really liked it. The only thing you could work on in future poems is the flow and adding some poetic devices. Other than that though its awesome. Keep writing!
