This poem deeply resonates with me. It's simple, yet it holds truth. I am also reminded of Cat Street by Yoko Kamio as I read it.

Very well done! Keep on writing wonderful poems. :D

Anam-Cara. That's what it's all about, if you do the Irish thing. I like this, and have often felt the same.

Nah, the meaning of your sentence isn't vague enough.  And you need a punctuation mark for a title to underscore how brief, and therefore deep, your poem is.  I will compliment you on not putting the whole sentence on one line, because a sentence without arbitrary line returns is just stupid.  However, you have too many line returns.  2 or 3 words per line is what makes the deepest poetry.  But don't feel bad.  Even the author has a line with one word instead of the requisite 2 or 3, so even he hasn't yet fully mastered the enter key.

The sad thing is, stuff like this, which my 11 year old brother could write make it to the front page. I mean seriously, thats one!! sentence which isnt really meaningful and it does not even have a good title.
I cant understand how people find this "deep". I dont even see Adele rolling in there.
Also there are many artists who deserve much more attention. Artists who work hours or days on a piece and put much effort in their work. Aaaaaand then there is this one.
