that So Cal
Ok, starting with wat I liked:
"I was wide-eyed in the dark
Without an ounce of defence."
To me, "wide-eyed" sound almost innocent, kinda like a surprised kid or baby. "Without an ounce of defence." conveyed the same feeling. Your words also showed me how this person blinded u and robbed u.
Um, a few things that I feel u could improve: While ur middle stanzas were pretty good, I thought ur beginning and end could've been stronger. For instance, maybe describing just how hard u were trying? (unless u meant it to be ambiguous)
At the end, ur ryhme scheme is fine, but i think the overall end would flow better if u changed blinded to something else. Since ur wrapping up ur poem, (and explained just wat kind of person ur rejectin) u could show show just wat that person did, instead of repeating how blinding he was (blinding kinda gives a sense of light or purity...)
Overall, it was good. I don't know u, so i cant say, but im sure u can do better? Lol, sorry for the long write.
There is power in the pen.
