"is it the worn metal of the necklace / you gave me / deformed from months of use". I love these lines because it shows just how much time has passed since the narrator got the necklace and how well-loved it is, even if the narrator isn't sure what love really is.
I love the ending "i don't know about falling in love / and i've always been afraid of experiencing what i didn't know / so now i'm afraid" since along with the notion of "not knowing", there is also a fear that comes with it and stands out quite strikingly in this poem. Not only is the narrator facing the unknown, we also know what they feel about it.
You shared the various ways the other showed love to the narrator but how scared the narrator was in facing these, as they didn't know what love was. Some insights from that included how love isn't always huge romantic gestures or big gifts to one another - it could also be small gestures and feelings, as told by the narrator.
I felt the fear the narrator was talking about throughout the poem, and I walked away with a deeper understanding of love in general.
It was a pleasure to read! It conveyed just the right amount of emotion and was interesting enough to capture my attention throughout. Good job!
