As powerful as an army
As delicate as a flower
You gave me your heart
And I trampled it to powder.

You deserve to be cherished
You deserve to be loved
How could I have done this
To my beloved.

You are such an inspiration
To everyone you know
Instead of holding you back
I should have helped you grow.

I don't know what the future holds
But I pray daily for your solace,
And I want you to know
That you are a goddess.

I wish I was an accomplished writer. This is my first poem since high school. Decided to give it a try. Would love any critiques you have that would help me improve. Thanks!

Brandon,, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@

I would greatly appreciate criticism. I decided to write just last week. This is my first poem since high school (almost 20 years ago). Certainly not feeling confident. I would love to get better which is why i joined this group. I'd like to get honest tips and critiques. I have tough skin. Thanks
