|Hey Dragonline, I really enjoyed reading your poem. There are a couple thoughts I feel I should express. However, I should let you know that most of my education regarding poetry was not done in English, so I do not have a very comprehensive grasp on the literary vocabulary of poetry. Please forgive me if you are confused about anything odd I write in this review. Feel free to send me a message if you need clarification on anything.
First thing that catches my attention is that the poem is not split into quartets. You've used a "xaxa, xbxb" rhyme structure, which leads me to believe that it is meant to be in quartets. Unless this was an aesthetic choice you've delibaretly made, I recommend putting breaks between the quartets. Excluding the final couplet, of course.
Personally, I am not a huge fan of the "xaxa, xbxb" structure. I think the reader often believes the first line will eventually find a rhyme somewhere in the quartet. When the quartet begins with an 'x' it is confusing for the reader. I think this poem could be restructured into a "axax, bxbx" or even a "axxa, bxxb" without compromising the content.
Speaking of the content, it is everything a poem should be. At least in my humble opinion. It is pleasing to the ear, yes. But I think where this poem excels is in its ability to speak to the heart without coming off as preachy or whiny. The feelings you're trying to express are clear, but they are not obvious. It is a rewarding experience for the reader to understand and appreciate your thoughts. I imagine this poem was very fun for you to write. It was certainly very fun for me to read.
I hope things get better for you soon, and please keep writing poetry. I've enjoyed your work very much.
