Just In
for You know me

Some of the lines here are great, like the "ticking time bomb, but you tick me off" and "I'm never there when you do need it". Good work with this

I like the push and pull of the speakers mind and how he/she views their opposite. I think it suits relationships eve ones that are dysfunctional and even ones that are perfect. There's always a push & pull.

"I'm as careful with you as I am with nobody else" - for some reason this line really struck me but my favourite is the last line: "you know me better than I know myself".

This is what I'd call poignant. I love the train-of-thought style and it shows a progression or transformation in their (or 'your' should I say) thoughts while still remaining stunted in others, which only adds to the realism of the voice. You love this person even if it means accepting their (from the sound of it) very flawed nature, and that to me, is the definition of the word.

It worries me somewhat to read the "physically and emotionally" part :(
There is a line to how far a person can go to help someone if they aren't ready to accept that they need it and start to face the problem(s).

I love your writing because you manage to successfully convey the emotion and state of the character but reveal only so much as is necessary - I am constantly wanting to read more. That's definitely one of the marks of a good writer!

this is beautiful... I just can't say any more, any less...

What you have - about your writing - is something we can all understand, and that's what pierces the most. This piece reminded me of so many things, and it was very touching to experience.

Especially the contradictions, and your spot on uses of them.

This doesn't feel like a poem but... it was nice.
I would love to see this in prose format also - just a little thought, no obligations - because it really feels like you're talking to someone (the words ànd the sentences)
This person comes alive a little bit. They're interesting and real, and frustrating even, in a wonderful way:)

This is a really contradictory piece, I noticed, but I do like it. There are a lot of different emotions which sort of conveys just the vastness of the spectrum of human emotions. A lot of people feel a lot of things, and I like how you've portrayed that in this poem.

Yeah, I've had relationships like this. I understand these emotions. Your line that starts 'I'm as careful with you...' really touched me:)
Thank you
