i made this poem for my english class a while ago, just wanted to share it with you guys ^^
oh and please excuse the "..." after like every sentence >_< i dunno why but i like em ... alot ... lol

oh well heres my poem!
With a heavy conscious on my head ... and tears on my mind
I wake up ... and you are not by my side ...

This weight presses so heavy on my chest
that I cannot breathe ... I suffacate ...

Am I ready to face the day ...
to face the world ...
to face my life ... Without you?

I look inside and a broken heart I find ...
With your name and face ...
forever ingraved ...
forever cherished ...

How helpless I feel ...
How your desperate pleas ring in my mind ...
How your memory is all I have ...

I go back ... and reminisce ...

Wandering alone in this forest of memories ...

I find you ...

and my heart aches ...

Because I cannot hear you ...
Because I cannot hold you ...

My hands ... numb from not touching you ...
I quiver and yearn for the need to hold you ...

Without your light to guide me ...
I travel lost ... I travel confused ... I travel aimlessly ...
in this forest of memories ...

How my blood has turned cold and in the heat of the night I shiver ...
As the sun shines, its warmth is of no use ...
I'm still cold ...

How the sea stands still and the waves have gone silent ...
I run to the waves to find you
but I lose you to the changing tide ...

As I stare lost in a dream into the never ending sea ...
I wonder where our dream gone
I wonder where our joyful memories have gone ...
and I finally see ...
and I finally realize ...
and I finally understand ...


How deaf I am to not hear your pleas ...
How blind I am to not see your tears ...
How cruel I am to have made you cry ...
How deluded I am to believe you were happy ...

I finally see ...

How stong you are to leave ... How strong you are to follow your heart ...

as you've prolly noticed its in my siggy also ^^, least part of it

All right, constructive criticism. Please don't be mad at me.
There are a lot of spelling errors and a lot of improper ellipse usage, and you could definetly improve this by using a spell-checker. A more frequent use of the shift key couldn't hurt, either.
It is depressing as stated by Hateful, but it could definitely use some improvement. It also comes off as a bit too much as teenage-angst, in my opinion. It isn't absolutely horrible, but it's not great either.
Keep practicing and you'll get better. :)
Out of curiosity, what grade did you get on this poem?

T_T There are a lot of spelling errors, but other than that, it is really good. Somewhat depressing though.

Okay heres my friggin poem after I actually used spellcheck and a shift bar XD
Abandonment

With a heavy conscious on my head,and tears on my mind
I wake up ... and you are not by my side ...

This weight presses so heavy on my chest
that I cannot breathe, I suffocate ...

Am I ready to face the day
To face the world
To face my life ... Without you?

I look inside and a broken heart I find
With your name and face ...
Forever engraved
Forever cherished ...

How helpless I feel
How your desperate pleas ring in my mind
How your memory is all I have

i go back, and reminisce ...

Wandering alone in this forest of memories ...

i find you ...

and my heart aches ...

Because I cannot hear you ...
Because I cannot hold you ...

My hands, numb from not touching you
I quiver and yearn for the need to hold you ...

Without your light to guide me ...
I travel lost, I travel confused, I travel aimlessly
In this forest of memories ...

How my blood has turned cold and in the heat of the night I shiver
As the sun shines, its warmth is of no use
I'm still cold ...

How the sea stands still and the waves have gone silent
I run to the waves to find you
But I lose you to the changing tide

As I stare lost in a dream into the never ending sea ...
i wonder where our dream has gone
I wonder where our joyful memories have gone ...
And I finally see ...
And I finally realize ...
And I finally understand ...


How deaf I am to not hear your pleas ...
How blind I am to not see your tears ...
How cruel I am to have made you cry ...
How deluded I am to believe you were happy ...

With tears of joy
I finally see ...

How strong you are to leave ...
How strong you are to follow your heart ...

You still didn't get all the spelling mistakes.
One of the most blatant ones is conscious instead of conscience. :)

Yeah, dude, I like ellipses ("...") too, but your poem could have done without them. If you read anything I write, you'll see at least one or two of them...(see, there's one right there!) posts on the forum, reports I write (even technical reports), e-mails...I use 'em all the time. For your poem, though, MOST of them could have been replaced by a simple line break. Instead of hitting the period key three times, just hit the return (enter) key once and keep on typin'.

Your poem wasn't "depressing," per se, just sad. Angst over loss, realizing it's your own fault, an' all that. The poem certainly has a lot of emotion, but, and this might sound odd, it could have done without some of that emotion. You sort of overdid it. I used to do that all the time, too. I don't make that mistake anymore because I don't write poetry anymore. You keep repeating the same feelings over and over with just a few changed words, it...it frankly gets too repetetive and boring. You bring up the whole feeling of being hopeless and lost, like...four times. Twice is plenty, thank you. Look into how you could slim it down by removing a few superfluous sentences. and moving some of what's left into the same stanza.

Again, it's really nice, but perhaps a bit too repetetive. It also sounds kinda weepy. Like Zephiris26 said, it comes off as more "teen angst" than actual deep emotion. Again, maybe some minor re-wording could help. I love that ending, though. Just get rid of those darned ellipses...save them for more casual conversation.

But, what do I know? I'm a physicist, not an English teacher. Take my comments as they are; merely the ramblings of someone who enjoys literature perhaps a bit more than he understands the literary process.
