The author chose to write short sentences. I think that the author did this because she wanted to get right to the point. She seems angry, and typically when you are angry you tend to talk in quick, short tones. The way she structured the poem made it clear to see how she felt. She felt that she was not heard enough and no one got to see the real her. She may have been left in the dark and misjudged. She says the word “talk” a lot, which I am guessing she did not get to do enough of. Or maybe she talked, but no one listened. The way writers write their sentences has a lot to do with what you get out of the poem. If the author would have chosen to write in long sentences, we may have not gotten the point as easily. But by repeating words, like she did, we knew exactly what she was talking about.
