Boot+Kitty=Poetry in motion
These words (I think) affect me, as a man, differently than they may affect the women in this forum. It seems to me that women can be very supportive and understanding, and feel for you. As a man, I'm more inclined to look for solutions, and so this poem frustrates me because I want to change your past and can do nothing but feel anger at the person who did this to you, and anger at myself for being powerless to make things better. It was a wonderful poem in that respect. It reached something inside me, and made me feel.
