I found this piece to be deep creative. I have not read many peoms that were about same sex relationships. The writer made many valid points by talking about how the family reacted and how they would probably react if the lover were to past first. Many same sex couples experience this exact thing. This poem is touching because no wants to lose the person they love, especially have to watch them die. I like this peom because in essence it is a sence of real life. Who wants to be alone? Who wants to have to face the family of the one they lost? The depth of this poem is unlike any of the other ones we have previously read in my opinion at least. I like how the lover is caught in thoughts of what he would do and say. Being left alone is one of the worst things that can happen to a person. I can't imagine having to deal with it. By it being a same sex relationship it only takes the strain of matters further because whose to say how the family will react, especially when the father has whooped the son an different occasions because of his sexual orientation. This poem speaks volumes.

Buy it, or Lie about it
“Hey, did you still need the items on your registry, because I can handle everything that’s on your list?”
That would nice, and yes I still need a few, are you sure you’re going to be able to handle everything that’s on their?
“Of course, you know I always come through!”
Lol, right! Well okay if you say you can handle it then go right ahead, thanks for everything.
“You’re welcome, I should have everything by next week, -*Thinking* should I have offered to do this?”
**Phone rings the day of the shower-“Hey, I’m just wanted you to know that I won’t be able to make, I’m having car troubles, but I will get everything to you tomorrow.”
Okay, bye. *Thinking* I knew he wasn’t going to do what he said anyway, glad I took care of it myself.
**Phone rings – interrupting thoughts- “What’s going on, I just seen Bill walking into the movies shouldn’t he on his way to party?”, that’s funny because he just told me he was having car troubles, I knew he was up to something, I’m going to call you right back!
*Text begins- I knew from the beginning you weren’t going to keep your word, but I hope you enjoy your movie!!!!

John’s car went BOOM and we made a sudden halt
Stuck on this dark pathway
I can’t think of anything but serial killers and scary movies
It’s 12:30am, Friday the 13th and we’re stranded GOD knows where
Not even a McDonalds in sight
We’re nervous, TREMBLING, shaking, and contemplating on what to do next
All we see is BLACK in every direction
SCRATCH, SCRATCH, SCRATCH!! What was that??? I yelled as I jumped in the back
“It’s probably just a family of geckos coming to EAT YOU!”
I LOOKED AT HIM AND MADE A FROWN, YOU’RE A FOOL –SMACK—YOU CLOWN!!!
Sitting outside of Taco Bell watching all the cars fly past
As Dan came speeding in the parking lot like he had fire on his a**
He hoped out the car screaming about a scratch on his car that looked to me as if it came from something sooooo small like rat
I burst out laughing, HAHAHAHA, you’re crying like you were attacked by a pack of animals
He looked up and walked over me, I’m steady laughing…
“You definitely won’t be laughing while you’re walking back”..
Before I could say a word, DING DONG, DING DONG flowed through the air
I laughed again, HAHAHAHAHA, and began my walk but thought to myself this is WACK
Oh, how I wish I could go back to February 9th
I still would be laughing, but I wouldn’t be walking because the car he’s driving
USE TO BE MINE.
