Tooth Fairy

Tooth Fairy

A Poem by Ragini
"

Contrary to the title, this is not a happy poem.

"
In this box,
Lie twenty objects,
White as milk,
Innocent as their owner.

Sparkling teeth,
Collected by a loving mother
Replacing the Tooth Fairy,
As an Angel in her own right.

She removes them one by one,
Counting all twenty
Tears in her eyes,
At the memory of her lost child.

At the bottom of the box
Is a letter,
A letter filled with pain and regret
From Daughter to Mother,
The same daughter who jumped off the roof.

"Dear Mother",
Starts the letter,
"I'm sorry to do this to you,
But I do not have the strength
Nor the will to live any more.
I have been bullied and bruised,
Pushed and pulled.
But, no more!"

"Goodbye, Mother",
she wrote.
"The Tooth Fairy up there,
She will take care of me."

Water flows from Mother's eyes
Like a waterfall.
Ten years have passed,
Yet she does not comprehend why,
A daughter would prefer a non-existent Tooth Fairy
Over her, her own mother, her Guardian Angel.

This poem is full of emotion, it is quite touching. Perhaps a little more detail in relation to the lost child would heighten it even more, making the reader feel more connected to the loss

Thank you!!!
I think that you did a very good job on this poem. It sincerely did bring out the right feel. However, I know that you can do a much better job than this. Cheer up if you are not satisfied. Ink your notepad with your thoughts once again and before you even blink your eyes... I am sure you would have created a master piece just like the many you already have...! :)

Okay, i like the way how you changed the style from one thing to another, i'm fine with that. although you should fix it a little, but not that much because the poem is good. i like it.

Oh, ok. Thanks. :)
I think this is pretty good, don't worry. :) The line about her lost child, that really punched me in the gut. A parent should never have to lose their child. But this is very pretty, very touching for both mother and daughter. I loved it. :)

I think it really has. :) Don't sell yourself short.But the part about water flowing from her eyes like a waterfall is a bit choppy, but it's good as a whole.
