    I really enjoyed this poem. I read other poems with the same topic. However, they used first poem as per usual. You didn’t and instead showed that you were the shell. It caught my attention right from the beginning.

    I really enjoyed your poem. The imagery you used was fantastic, it’s very easy to imagine the scene you describe in your poem. Your line “Explore my different colors and textures” is especially captivating.

    i like the way you describe yourself. by objectifying yourself, you give the reader a sense of disconnect in my opinion. a way where we look and cant help but to see you as larger than yourself. as people take from you we feel a sense of hopelessness that many people might find themselves in.
