    I appreciate the line about trust being the only price for forgiveness. It's so true, because just as it is difficult to fully trust someone after being hurt by him/her, it is difficult to completely forgive as well.

    I'm intrigued and will admit that I'm not exactly sure what it is about. I do love the very declarative, final statement in the beginning (nice usage of the period) in the beginning with the rest of the poem coming after it. The paradox it creates is nice. Also, the vague role of the 'protagonist' at the end of the poem leaves the reader thinking about long after having finished the poem. I would be interesting in gaining in better idea of what the poem is about if you'd like to reply.

    I enjoyed this very much. I especially liked your usage of the verb to be in the imperative form in the last stanza. It was simplistic yet powerful and placing it on its own line was a nice aesthetic choice.
