Ruth - I know you can, thank you!
Enola - You've got me blushing a crimson shade! If this provides inspiration, then I am doubly blessed! (And I expect to see the resultant poem!)
Mistikman - Thank you, actually I was worried I might have overdone it. Glad o see it was well recieved.
Corazon - Thank you for reading and replying!
Gen - Thank you, I think... For the record: This poem is actually about myself and some of the personal trials I've experienced in my life. Though I don't necessarily feel this way anymore, the memories of it are still vividly etched in my mind. I swear this had nothing to do with anyone other than myself and the person whom was directly involved. I chose to view it from a female standpoint to gain a bit of emotional distance, and to bring a more subjective viewpoint to the feeling of the poem. When I started, it was from the first person, male, viewpoint. I found myself to "close" to the subject, so I found a way to back it off a bit. Then, I was able to recall the feelings, but maintain a space between it and I. Capice?
