This again was written in the middle of the night. I'm somewhat new at this so please comment.

I'm always there to lend a hand

You're always there to share a laugh

We go together like feet in the sand

But -

When you look into my eyes what do you see

When I look into your eyes I see all your lies

I see what we could be

If you could see like me

I see all of your wants

All of your needs

Your past - life's weeds

I like it, you could try and expand on it a bit maybe and get across your point more clearly. x

I think this is a really strong and emotional poem. And the reason for such is that it's short and compact. The line "But-" was particularly strong and made a distinction between what it is on the outside and what it is that you really feel.

I really liked the "feet in the sand" imagery.

Thank you! I picked "feet in the sand" because I thought it showed just what you said..what is on the outside and what it is that is really felt. I thought it showed how you could be almost there and yet not quite..if that made any since haha. Anyway I'm glad you like it!

A catchy title and you bring up some strong emotions. You may want to expand on this one at a later date as you gain more experience. Nicely done.....Jerry

Once again, this poem is beautiful. Its so deep. I love the lines: "im always there to lend a hand, your always there to share a laugh" it reminds me of people i know. A I feel that a lot fo fond memoerys are stored in these two lines. but then there a clever twist and it talks about lies - which i didnt see coming!

Your metaphor is used very well here. The writing is very honest and to the point, yet still retaining major signs of artistry.

I love your work findingmyway :)
