    The feelings of rejection



The feelings of rejection you have expressed very well and leave the reader in no doubt about your pain and despair. Your poem has a good descriptive quality. Isn't such uncompromising rejection difficult to adjust too? I thought your poem was a good read and well written.

Thank you kindly, your kind words and compliments are much appreciated.
