    It is so true that listening to old songs is such a comforting feeling from the past. It is as though part of you too is within the words as you hear them again and your mind goes back and you are young again. Beautifully written Sanaa.

  15. This has such a great structure. The way the lines are trying to come together… this, to me, relates so nicely to your theme here. Coming together, or trying to.

    I detect regret in this poem ….of a broken romance or a relationship that never began. Clever use of broken lines that never merge and good use of rhyme.
