Hell is empty and all the devils are here - Shakespeare

It’s only you
Ever you
Who brings me close
To believing I’m
Something more than a
Promise and bones wrapped together with
Skin and whispers
It’s only you
Who keeps me
And makes me
And happy
With whom I’ve become
It’s only you
Ever you
With my heart tied
To a telephone line
I breathe
Release everything
To me
Because it’s only you
Ever you
Who I need
When I can’t
Make it on

agree with this poem because I felt as if it was so strong. It’s strong to me because it’s a love poem, and nothing is stronger than love. “With my heart tied,” this line is the strongest line in the poem to me, because when your in love your heart is really tied up.

You used great imagery to help us paint a picture when you said "promise and and whispers." The way you formatted this poem definitely made it more effective along with the repetition "only you ever you" It flows gracefully. It was very easy to relate, I love it!

I loved this a lot! It really reminded me of my relationship with Jesus. I have been in church my whole life but just recently have I begun to follow Him with my whole heart. I love my Savior! He is my everything!
