Moments

By Rachael  (booksie.com)

I wrote this poem a couple of years ago when I was 16, enjoying that naive view of love and happiness that the last year or so of my life has managed to ware down a great deal! I have no idea whether my poetry is any good at all, so would REALLY appreciate ANY comments, praise or criticism! Thanks!
