Thinking Of You - Poem by Hannah Davies

You popped into my head today
Whilst I was innocently looking the other way.
It was only for a minute or two
I don't know what made me think of you.

Once again I feel you there
Your eyes burning through me with that evil stare.
What a stupid thing to do
Can't believe I caught myself thinking of you.

I hear your voice, cold as ice
Like a knife to the heart, it continues to slice.
A moment of weakness I went through
It must have been to even think of you.

A violent touch from your hand
No reason behind it, I will never understand.
It doesn't matter what I do
I still find myslef thinking of you.

Is it normal? I'm not sure
I can't keep going round in circles any more.
Keep my brain focused on other things to do
So I won't even have time to think of you.

    I really liked the first several stanzas. The rhyme and repetition were deceptively simple, as the poem progressed I realized it was not just a sing-songy thing your were writing, not a greeting card, but something about a complex, painful situation.
    I found that worthy of a poem.
    The last couple stanzas didn't have quite the impact for me, though I'm not sure what to suggest, to strengthen them.
