Hello, Ripple here to review!

So assuming that this was not a work that you decided to delete, the nothingness could be very powerful, with the only word that we can base our judgement on being "Delete". Has the true poem been "deleted" by those who do not want it read? By the author him or herself? Why would they want it gone? What is their motivation in erasing it?

Or it could just be a poem that was made blank in an effort to erase it, which is probably more likely. :P

Hello! El here for a review~

Alrighty, so to start off, let me just say that I am not familiar with poetry nor do I usually care for it. However, I quite liked this.

I'm not sure about 'You' and 'Sweetheart' being capitalized. I also haven't seen any poems before that had each first word in each line capitalized. Perhaps the layout itself would look better if it was aligned to the left?

I really like the meaning of the poem as well, it gives me a feeling if nostalgia and sadness. It makes me want to know more about the characters' pasts too. I'm going to go and read some more of your works as soon as I get the chance! c;

Sorry if this was a terrible review, I hardly every review poetry and you know more than I do.

-El.
