The final question is easy--don't feed the hate; most definitely celebrate! This is clearly an exceptional Minute. The words flow together perfectly, and the message is clear. Great work!

Oh, this is different and quite a Minute.
Overall presentation is perfection.
I love the questions in each stanza.
I really liked the deep emotion I felt in this poem as I was reading.
A most-wonderful contest entry, and I truly wish you the very best.

I consider this to be a gem... not a rough diamond - it's an absolute stunner of sparkling simplicity, covering in very few lines all the emotion that is unleashed at the end of a controlling relationshit (and that is not a typo!) This girl can now get some backbone, not even concern herself with whether he is grieving or not, and CELEBRATE. Pop the cork... I'm coming over to give you a hug.

Your well-written minute poem vividly paints a scenario featuring people in a bad relationship that finally ends. You have movingly ex[pressed that
the formerly-abused "victor" now must decide between bitterness or full recovery.

Whoa. This is hauntingly beautiful! It's not a piece I could just read and then immediately review. I had to sit back in my chair and really think about it and digest what all was being said. This is an EXCELLENT job, Mystery Writer. I bet you will see it does quite well in the contest. Good luck to you. xo

Wow. Fantastic write, author. Plus, one of the coolest pictures I've seen on this site. Loved the second stanza the most, a weakened spine, like you did mine. Awesome. I wish you the best of luck in this contest. The sad part is you have the single word 'hate' in it. Just because of that, some of these sorry ass people on this site will choose to cast their votes in other directions. It's a shame that only happy, pretty, bunnies stuffed up the ass bull crap wins on this site. But what can you do? This is a great piece. I hope you do well. So far it's the best one I've read and I'll keep an eye out for it in the booth.

DS

This is a poignant write about a controlling relationship that eventually broke down and is their relief or sadness here, your words are clever and I wish I had a six for you because this deserves one, love Dolly x

This meets the contest requirements beautifully with perfect iambic pentameter throughout, correct stanza line and syllable count. The content is inspiring and leaves the reader thinking as the closing poses a question that everyone must answer at some point in their life. Good luck in the voting and thank you very much for sharing it.
