A Poem by Hannah Messer
"

Poem about quitting smoking & love.

"
You find me and whisper,
that we need to talk.
I'm scared,
but I'm ready,
unsure where to start.
Your voice is so shaky,
and I hear your pain,
but you bravely start talking,
so I do the same.
You're sorry,
you tell me,
for lying to me.
You haven't quit smoking,
like everyone thinks.
I hold you,
and rock you,
and cry some myself,
but I can't be angry,
you just need some help.
I love you,
I say,
everything will be fine.
I'll always be yours,
and you'll always be mine.

This was an interesting, full of emotion poem. This poem was very flowing and well written. I truly likes it. It had a nice rythm that i love. Great job! Although it was a great poem, it was like a "statement" It was what i call a "story poem" A poem that told a story. Which are nice but in my personal opinion i like "metaphor poetry" But this was still great.

A really nice flow and raw personal feeling to this piece, maybe some repetion throughout may help bind it all together (but thats only a minor point). really well done.

I really liked this! I liked the way it just kind of went on and I didnt have to go back and reread it to try and figure it out. It made sense and had true meaning behind it. I can also relate with my mom to this, so I really enjoyed this! Good job!(:

This is so sweet.

I loved every word from every line. I'm sure a lot of people can relate to this poem.

This was absolutely lovely.

It's simple and to the point. I myself am a fan of this style because despite its simplicity it could give you a nice dramatic touch but I think you need a bit of purple prose in it because it got a bit fragmented and a bit rushed for some reason. But it's quite good, it has a nice story to tell.

May I ask for the meaning of the title? I know some may not get it but is there a personal meaning behind this? I'm quite curious. ^_^

I agree, it does feel somewhat rushed. I'll have to think about that a bit.

Smoking and love; can relate to both. Another example of your simple and direct expression - keep it up.

Quite a good one, but I don't really think the name "8675309" works for it though. I'm sorry for say'n it, but it kinda confused me. It make me think it was something like the song. Really is a good piece.
