Wasn't, isn't, is

It wasn't me who hurt you, told you that you were no good,
It wasn't me who lied to you i doubt i ever could.
It wasn't me who deserted you when life fell on desperate times,
It wasn't me who introduced you to violence and petty crimes,
It wasn't me who spent every penny that you had,
It wasn't me who left you alone at night feeling sad.

It isn't me who want to tear your life apart,
it isn't me who wants to break your lonley heart,
It isn't me who ignores you,who never talks to you anymore,
It isn't me who makes you wonder what life is worth living for.
It isn't me who cheated on you with manipulating pretence,
It isn't me who said and did things that just didn't make sense.

It is me who over you loses so much sleep,
It is me who has feelings for you so deep,
It is me who wants to hold you,kiss you everynight,
it is me who loves you deny it as you might,
It is me who wants to forfill your hearts every desire,
It is me who will protect you from the heartless criminal liar.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I appreciate moderate constructive criticism
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Last few words: 
Quite an odd poem this, I heard of a gentleman who on his death bed said "what if isn't wasn't and isn't were" and that's sort of where this crazy poem comes from. Alas its about another unhappy love affair which seems to be my bread and butter atm, however if I wasn't having my heart ripped out of my bum constantly then you would have nothing of mine to read.

Not Explicit Content


a little unsure about using six lines in each stanza, but... overall, a good piece of work! I would delete the commas and stops at the end of each sentence. I do think, that if you are to use any punctuation at all, you should make it at the natural pause in each line. Check carefully, the lines with [want] in them, as I see at least one that needs an ess. Your title is good and drew me in, [which it is supposed to do] and although the theme is one of sadness, you have managed to convey the emotion quite well. I also like the progression of the content from past to present. Nice stuff! ~ Geezer.

There is value to commenting and critique, tell us how you feel about our work.
This must be the place, 'cause there ain't no place like this place anywhere near this place.

Thankyou so much for your comments always happy to receive them it helps me produce a more polished piece.
