    I was totally captivated by the powerful "I've had enough" feel but written so eloquently. Must be why it's on theTop 100 All-Time list. Excellent writing :)

    this is complete and final banishment. Done with the power of a king. Excellent and congratulations on it being one of the Top 100. SuZ

    Nice work! I like the reality of this poem.

    I meant: one of the more famous poems of the Soup. And nothing about the comment below is sarcastic, including wot I mentioned about the hybridization of open verse and prose. I like it when that happens(with a good tone), and I think you should write more poems that incorporate this style(try out different themes?).

    Ah yes, one the more infamous poems of the Soup. I remember this poem; remember how much I enjoyed reading it. Wot I realize more now, is how to me this isn't straight-forward free verse/open verse, but a hybridization of free verse and prose(to me). I mean this as a compliment. For quite a while, I have been intrigued by fusing free verse with prose(purple prose?). This will always be one of the best poems that you have written.

    How many of us have said this to ourselves. You put it into words beautifully.

    Who could not be touched with the emotional pain expressed in this poem? I think you speak for many as well as yourself Ruben. It is an outpouring of soul and will move anyone reading it. Love, Elizabeth

    Reuben, definitely written from a heart that's burdened with pain, dissapointment and frustration. Love this as I respect a man who knows what he wants and says it even though it may hurt as hell...An exceptional poem...well done! Always, Annalise

    I'm just taking a moment to re-read one of the most amazing if it were the first time.... It beats like a drum, and blows me away with the rythmn of finality and raw expression... I am once again in awe..

    I love the simplicity of your words, and how not spoon feed everything about the situation makes that one can not tear them self away because they long to know more. It is raw emotion at it's best

    Ruben, here goes a wow, for yourself... this is deep, and harsh.. but i figure it is all for reasons.. I really did enjoy this poem. Another thought in another lifetime, is awesome. I wonder if the feelings will still feel the effect that was opposed on you during this tainted memory.... Anyways ~ I enjoyed this one, and now I'm adding it on my favorite list ;- )... PD
