Dear Mr. Reality,
What have you done to me?
I am alone and everyone has died,
Was it more than words of weary woe,
Or silence that made them leave?

Dear Mr. Reality,
Where are you right now?
I am scared and everything has gone,
Was it only little things in turbulent times,
Or a catastrophe I did not know?

Dear Mr. Reality,
Why couldn't you just be dead?
I am upset and everywhere has vanished,
Was it just me screwing up social salutations,
Or mere fantasy of realism instead?
Inspired in partiality by Dear Mr. Fantasy by Traffic.

This may be my last poem for a while. Well, depending if I get computer access at the library and the ability to upload what I write. (I have to copy by hand what I write onto the library computer, since they don't have the necessary computer word processing program that I use.)

Very good. I like the tone and how it talks, and the dramatic emotion. Very good. :D

It's deep and almost haunting. At least that's my opinion :d

I like the idea you have behind it. Very interesting word choices and detailed to the point that it doesn't need anymore explaining than what is written here already. The emotions your words evict are plainly stated, something the reader can instantly pick up....as I said, very interesting (and great! i might add) word choice. :)

I really like this. The voice is sophisticated yet naive. The structure is awesome, each line with a relationship both to the lines above and below but also to the corresponding line in the stanza above or below it. I very much enjoyed it.

This is so good. It feels, at least to me, like a child around 10-13 is the one asking all of this. It just feels so innocent.

I think I wrote this with an innocent frame of mind. The child aspect is very much a new aspect to me, but I get what you mean.

Yeah I know. Pretty decent for a poem I think. Even a small statistic makes me want to write more...
