I Wonder If You Are Reading This And If You Understand What I'm Asking

i am ready for your crushing blow

break my jaw

slam your fist into my teeth

and, smiling,

i will be sure to thank you

for at least being honest

and saying something to my face

for once.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


Yes, I understand. Insults and slander behind one's back are more painful than physical pain, because there is no defence.

Remember to punch them back though!

A powerful poem.

A new workshop on the most important element of poetry-
'Rhythm and Meter in Poetry'

i'm actually planning on submitting this to my school's literary magazine. i'll let you know if they get it, too :)

As Jess says this is powerful, about time you told them or shot them, but just tell them will do..
Yes a good submission to the magazine, we await the report on this one.

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
