you capture boyish anger well, and the desperation of its management

Well, its pure emotionalism. Anger and deriving pleasure in self-destruction. You expressed it well.

You allow us to momentarily step into the mind of the subject. Very well expressed!

I am attracted to the bricks and mortar feel of this piece; the urban quality as well as the human structure. More intriguing to me is how you relate the anger and the moment, but you've done it from outside the character, not letting the emotive theme bury you. - Image, flow, form are all working quietly overtime. Very well done. - RCat

i can agree with this. I am a teenager, and have to agree that young hearts hurt so easy. Thank you for such a great poem.

"At sixteen your heart bleeds as easily as your skin" what a perfect line to start a wonderful poem packed with strong imagery, enough imagery to feel it to the tips of your soul...I love it...

16 wasn't so long ago for me. I think at that point in time our emotions were so extreme. The strange part is how quickly we would forget and the same emotions would come back again and again:) Kat.

Wonderful insight into a 16 yr old's mind. Great choice for POTD!

Well crafted - a nice tight feeling to it. The exchange of pains at the end is a strong finish. Thank you.

"Quarts of beer and Marlboros only dull the ache"...for me, in Queens, it was Tareytons and Schaefer, but the ache is universal and this poem is searingly on target.

each stanza ravishes the thought process and bleeds it a little.
