Life. Webster's defines it as "the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body." But what if on the inside your dead? What if living on a day to day basis killed you? My Life In Rhyme is a series of poems, each one about something that has either killed me, or brought me back to life.

I'm so sorry about Matthew. I understand completely how it feels to lose someone close to you. My mom and I were very close and even three years after her death, I still can't believe she's gone. I love this a lot. I bet Matthew is very proud of you. :)

Is this based on fact? Like, real life happenings? If it is, I'm so sorry for your loss. This was a great piece of writing though. Really emotional and just wonderful. *voted*

I love this, it's so beautifully written. 
                              It's short but it's still so full of meaning and emotion.
