I loved this contemporary piece. It held a ring of truth...and it was told with conviction. Nice job withe dialogue and internal feelings. I really enjoyed it. It was bittersweet.

Thanks. God bless~
I like the arrangement of this narrative poem--as well as the story.
Narrative poem form is very effective with this story. Kind of knew they knew but still you held the tension well. Title, opening and ending are all creative and satisfying.
Loved the flow, like the soft roll of a boat in calm waters. Sweet, and poignant, and I too, loved the narrative-poem arrangement.
Wonderful, a great story and very well deserving of its placing. Many congratulations.
Just beautiful. Congratulations!
