22 (who?)
Shattered dreams,
Silent screams,
Tear stained eyes on a lifeless pillow.

Tethered hearts,
Brightened sparks,
Gentle kisses on a dark summer's night.

Infringed notions,
Masked emotions,
These thoughts are hard to hide.

Desperately waiting,
Constantly anticipating,
The dreams I had in mind.

Barley hanging,
Mentally cascading,
Why's it everyone's turn, but mine?
Made the changes I thought were unnecessary. I think it reads much better now.

Short and spicy, I like it :) even though all paragraphs are very short, you still managed to tell a good story/scene that people can imagine and place themselves into.
very nice

Thank you!

I like the structure of the poem, it removes all the unnecessary words while still keeping the meaning of the overall poem. It's also, nice way to visually express the idea of "shattered dreams".
The only thing that seems to ruin the flow of your poem would be the third line of each stanza - compared with the other lines, they're slightly awkward to read, with their simple sentence structure.

Aside from that, nice ideas :)

Thank you. I guess I was slightly pulling away from the typical rhyming poem...where the third line is spoken.

Honestly I have never study the structure of poetry so I am a bit unfamiliar with it. Thank you for your feedback. I will see if I can possible reword it, in order to make it flow better.

Thanks again :)

No problem!
As part of studying texts and poetry, we're required to also "analyse" how structure contributes to the overall effect on a poem -.-"" So I'm used to it.

Ah, I see. Yeah I should probably start studying myself. I am just so use to poetry coming to me, and quickly writing it down before it fades away. Sooner or later I will sit down and look at structure as well lol.
I know you'd like a properly structured comment (and here I am defeating the purpose of fav-and-running by writing a lengthy- useless- comment nonetheless) but I really should get back to my work...
