Love Nots - Poem by michele kostelnik

the strangeness of others even
your sisters and brothers
is a responsibility
to overcome-
or some night they will be
lying in bed dying.
how you loved them, its quality,
will be unknown to you
as your own mother was while
a living stranger.

    I like this one it hits close to home for me
    might even say a little too close
    comes across as something that was hard to write

    I agree with Mr Hosein here, although the theme has been tried and tested, once this poem has been read a few times it is clear that is holds deeper more personal issues...... nice write Michelle.

    best wishes

    A piece about a similar theme but approaching from a different angle - which makes it a refreshing and deeper read than its peers. A nice job and an original read.
