When you are with me

Without you, loneliness.
Without you, unplowed fields of sorrow.
With you, a discovery
that life is better,
so much better
than without you.

I enjoyed reading your poem. I would change the title from "When You Were With Me" to "When You Are With Me" That is only my opinion. Good expession of emotion, here!

Always, Cat

What's loneliness
I might suggest dropping the conjunction and using the what is ( as a whole)

again drop the conjunction and use the whole as it solidifies the line more
perhaps the repetition is your way of writing so I will not critique that part as I am not a fan of the form

Over the years I have discovered bad poetry, good poetry, brilliant poetry and poetry that strikes a chord within, so to speak.

Sometimes it's just placement that can make the poem SING!

Without you, loneliness.
Without you, unplowed fields of sorrow.
With you, a discovery
that life is better,
so much better
than without you.

What is loneliness?
I have never known it,when you were with me.
What is sorrow?
I have never discovered it, when you were with me..
What is life?
Its fun, when you are with me for now & forever.

Hi Loved,

Am so glad that you have read my poems. Thank you so much. May I know your real name please?
I started off writing poems when i was in standard 7th, but there was encouragement, So i just quite. Again began writing when I was pursuing my graduation. We used have management events and i was given task of preparing intro of each event in an interesting way. And secondly I never spoke out my feelings, but when i couldn't keep them to me, there were out in form of poem.

Cheers,

Kavi
