Owe You the World

When I touch down
You owe me nothing
Ima give you the world and I ain’t bluffin
I had no business leaving you all alone
But ima make it up to you when I come home
Just know me and you we are the future.

    Short and powerful. Poems like this pack an emotional punch. Great use of rhythm.

    In future poems, you might try using more concrete images and discreet details to represent your emotions.

    I like how the poem is part of an imaginary dialogue between the author and a lost loved one. It’s an interesting structure for approaching a poem.

    Keep it up!
