Though I am full of thorns
Nobody dares to think
I too have a tender heart inside!

Very Nice. Almost a haike or synue if you reversed lines 2 and 3. Not a criticism, just an observation.

Meter is 6-6-9...this is haiku/senryu. I am full of thorns. Who dares think a tender heart inside.[[[period]]]]]does this help you tighten this wonderful poem? ? ? Just a thought! ! !

Lovely Title: Smart Alliteration. Even a rude looking one, is not always rude in the inside. A thought provoking poem, well worded and in brevity. I looked at the title and I clicked to read the poem, but what do I see? I had responded last year, WOW! Exactly in the same month December! A brilliant poem though a brevity. A 10 full vote.

Perfection captured in a few lines! Very touching as most wouldn't care to think, rather than the appearence of things
