Hate MAG

The hate that ran from his lips
Nearly knocked me unconscious.
His words ripped through my heart
Everyone saw it.

Twenty-seven sets of eyes burned me,
Confused stares closing in,
The room began to shrink.
What was happening?

I shakily inhaled
And knew I had to run
My tears hit the floor
And then I was gone.

Heat radiated through my face
My eyes were on fire
The tears hoped to cool them
But the fire was too wild

My lungs begged for air
But something resisted
The short panicky breathing
Made me feel dizzy

Sudden fatigue consumed me
The cool bathroom wall
Prevented me from falling

I’ve gotten it together
But makeup streaked my face
My cheeks still burned red
As I quietly walked away.

Every Time I even think of you, all those bad memories just fade away, 'cause your smile's enough, you're enough...

Well, Actually, it depends on your way of saying, "face" and "away" and the others, not everything has to be as proper as, say, "Meet,and sleet". But yeah, I thought it was amazing and very, Very, meaningful.

"But without the dark, we would never see the stars"

I love the idea behind this poem, it truelly is very deep. However, unless it is intended to be verbal poetry the rhyming scheme didn't really work. Words like "resisted" and "dizzy" or "face" and "away" don't really rhyme and overall it made the poem somewhat difficult to read and hurt the flow. The ideas are there though, to make it flow better in the future I would just tidy up the rhyming scheme.

I love this so much, it's so honest and intense. I'd love to know what you think of my poems, so if you have time you should let me know :)

I'm suprised.. I thought there would be alot of comments on this poem. I love how it almost makes the reader feel like they're there and let them feel exactly what it's like. Very deep poem, and very cleverly done too. 5stars.
