Don't make someone a priority, when they only make you an option.

yes, but in the second line, she can just delete the "that" and just leave it as : "out all the poems i wrote", it just flows better, don't you think ?

Nice poem, but did you notice that the third line is 8 syllables? idk if there are official rules for a haiku or not but I was just wondering if you knew that.

New Moon - S. Meyer
'I flung my leg over the edge and ram through the knee deep water, it sprays all around me. "Edward!" I yell knowing it is useless. The crowd is too loud and my voice is breathless with exsertion. But I couldn't stop screaming.'

I'm gonna take a guess and say they were about a boy.

It's nice - kind of funny, too - but I think it's left to a lot of loose interpretation.

Hah! I'm the same way! I have thrown out a few of the bad ones, but most of my writing I keep- for future use, inspiration, or amusement.
