My Mother's Tears

Today I made my mom cry.
I did things that my Father will never forgive.
I am desroying my family and my life.
I cannot even write poetry about this.
I do not think I ever could.
My mother will cry when
she sees this and my father will
cuss me out and break my face.

Oh shit. I really really like the poems I'm reading on poetry crit today. The last stanza is pure and bitter and perfect. Lines 3 4 and 5 are not as good as they could be. They just don't fit to me. ((8))

honest and heart-felt, good effort.

i thought this was terrible. i should probably rewrite lines 3,4, and 5. thanks for reading.

a little juvenile, yet it's unpretentious. Not very well written, but it manages to get emotions across. Full stop or comma after line 1 think. Maybe change probably to definitely in lines 6 and 8, or remove altogether to make the ending stronger.
