i like this one the best. i can't say exactly but it's written better than any other one. i think when you stay to simplistic messages and descriptions it allows the reader to be swept up in their own emotion instead of you telling them what they should feel. because of that i liked the way this one was able to flow and let the readers own emotions take over with your words.
The tough love aspect of your poem isn't reciprocated in my life, but damnit do I ever connect with it. The world these days is not made for someone who openly weeps or shows emotions. Everyone is either strong or weak, but never, ever balanced. It's been through expressing myself in phrases, words, and poetry that I've realized I was meant to cry. Especially about loss. Especially about women. I admire you, Sir. 'Real men' do what feels right. 'Real men' exist in people like you. Thank you for this.
