It’s you and me now
Just the two of us
Working against the world

With fists held high
Against an outside force

The treacherous walls
Begin to cave in

I close my eyes tight and say,
“Tell me when its over.”

And I think back…

All the hardships,
The struggles
We’ve endured
The pain
The hurt
Nothing can come close
To loosing what I love the most
Loosing the one that I would
Without hesitation
Give my heart to
Beating like a drum

And j ust when
My ocean blue eyes shut
They forcibly open
A moment’s reaction

I am not giving up

Amazing, you litterally put yourself into your poem, however watch out for spelling and grammer, the keyboard is a tricky device

Very interesting; I love the ray of hope that you leave towards the end of your article. "I am not giving up," I love that. It shows that you have the heart and the determination to never let go; to never give up no matter what comes your way. I love how you stretch the past and make it apart of your determination to keep fighting. Wonderful job.

I liked this a lot. I found a small spelling error ("losing" instead of "loosing"). I like the desperate fighting instinct that overcomes the narrator in the end. :D Great job!

My first reaction is wow, i can tell there is so much emotion behind this, i love the almost nochalant pattern of this, it rolls off the tongue. I can definetly relate :)
