    This pain you feel, do you love it or hate it? Like familiarity...something you can`t turn away from. You write so raw and on edge, it feels exciting to read.
    Keep writing, Mr. Johnson. (Report) Reply

    the poem is certainyl universal. the pain that everyone strives on to feel alive. i know i indulge in it, maybe more than i should. but i think that hope is relative to pain. like light and dark.. can't have one without the other.
    So i hope you find what you need to remind you of that.
    Nicely written, sir (Report) Reply
