|After reading this poem,I am more than bless not to be like those jerks you described.I have a ton of love to give and hopefully one day,a woman can see it and appreciate it where it will make her have tears of happiness and not tears of sadness.Love is one of the greatest feelings that a person can ever get,have or received.Your poetry says it loud that you are a strong woman and that you are proud.It sends a message that you will not be taken for granted and you will not take any verbal,mental and physical abuse from a man.Any guy on the face of this planet will be lucky to have you in their lives.take care and keep writing captivating and uplifting poems like this

|Powerful writing...the descriptions are so vivid and the determination is applaudable to have the power to eject that riff raff weakling that is so insecure...he has to resort to violence and control. This is not how it should be at all. I applaud you for your strenth and this write.|
|Reviewed by Julie Donner Andersen
|Any person who thinks love is a fist is a weak bastard. Love isn't about pain. It's not about controlling a partner. It's got nothing to do with selfishness. Is's all about self-sacrifice for the good of a partner.
I;m so glad not all men are this way. I married a gentleman who knows what love is. Thank God. Otherwise, I'd be "outta here", too.
Brava for this poem, Pier. I stand in ovation of a woman's decision to leave an abuser and make a new life.

|When the heart speaks from the soul within...one can not deny the questions of the heart...as you listen, the story is told. As it unfolds as painful as it may be, it gives birth to the beauty that is being told. You value the treasure that is placed in your heart, carefully tending to the value of who you are. My dear Pier, this will take you far.|
|Reviewed by Kathy Armijo
|An incredible write. Men, like this, don't have the foggiest idea what love is - either as a giver or recipient. "I'm out of here!" For some the going takes longer, but the road ahead can only be better. If this is your journey, I wish you well and know that God will help you as you make a new chapter in your life.

|Your poem is profound and filled with innocent woes. It reminds me of an article I wrote, "What is Love". I think every person has his/her own concept of love, but abusing someone certainly isn't love. A great write.|

|This is an excellent statement of self-respect. Abused women... DON'T TAKE IT! You don't HAVE to put up with such a relationship for the sake of love or the illusion of being a "whole woman". If your mate doesn't respect you, then it is VITALLY IMPORTANT that you respect yourself and walk away.
Nice work, Pier!
|Reviewed by Michelle Ottley
|Bravo Pier! Let this be a lesson for all our men who think that abuse is fashionable. Love doesn't hurt or degrade you. When you have Knowledge of Self, you can identify unhealthy relationships and create boundaries. Thank you for sharing such an enlightening piece of work.

|Leo Buscaglia is one of the dearest human being that ever lived. And this is a lovely poem. A day of cheers for you for your wonderful poem.
|Reviewed by Richard Orey
|O, Pier, this is powerful medicine for those with dysfunctional manhood. This is a message every woman should take to heart and make their mantra. You're an individual person of value, not a commodity on the shelf like soap for the washing machine. In your verses you grab it all and tell it like it is.
Ladies, there are men of value out there that will treat you with dignity and respect. Don't settle for anything less. Too many men don't know the difference between seduction and romance, between making love with a woman and loving a woman. Well, if you don't get the real thing, just tell em', "I'm out of here!"
Three cheers for you, Pier. You've got my vote all the way!

|Evil is the opposite of good - hate is the opposite of love - Havem't you ever heard the song -/ 'I always hate the one I love'Both are strong emotions and I would say that happens because the other one wants to possess you completely. And it cannot be done. Human begins cannot be owned. Like the bird clenched in a fist--a wild bird must be free or he will die. Same for humans. Marguerite|

|My poem Sex Is Not Love, is exactly what I see here. Men think because they give us sexual gratification, that they love us. Then when we say something to assert our sense of self, they hit us. That is not love. Love is when two people can get together and share the responsibilities of the relationship, and respect each other. Men think we have to be the one to have that respect, and they can do whatever. I love the ending here Pier, and it should be put in every bar, pool hall, and men's club that have this type of "I love you" syndrome. Very nice write, Pier, and thnx for sharing. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, maybe too stubborn for my own good, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your still very sad and very terrified little sister, Barbie

This composition is a picture of millions of Bandido-relationships with flashes of the STOCKHOLM SYNDROME.
"What Does Love Mean to You" when read with a heedful eyes can become
a lesson of life; it is depicting of a relationship that was lacking love from the first meeting.
I salute You, Poet!
Keep posting Your wise poetic flowers.
