Published on a poem website is a love poem written by Michael Mack. It is known as, The Robot. He wrote The Robot from a personal experience in the year of 2007.

In the poem, the girl states, “ I will not live beside a friend who cannot give!” She goes on about the misuse of her love she has given to him, “Though I be battered by misuse, misguided trust and strong abuse.” As given in quotation, the girl is hurt and does not seem to...
