    Dear Nicole,

    thank you for giving me this chance to read your poems. I appreciate their emotional forthrightness, even as they feel to be conveyed with a technical naivete. At times, it feels as if the poems become too direct, too involved in reporting your situations directly from life; here, perhaps, developing some distance by working away from the 'I' of the first person, to, perhaps, the 'you' of the second person, or even 'he/she/it' of the third, can help, as I have found with my own work.

    Please feel free to dropp me a line if ever you want a detailed critique. And if there is any way that I can help benefit you and your poetry.

Hold Me Close

Hold me close my darling,
there's no need for you to cry.
My life has meaning and happiness,
and your the reason why.
You ask how can I love you,
and you feel you let me down.
You say you wouldn't blame me,
if I were to mess around.
You cry because you worry,
