Okay I have to reply to your last review (email is still temperamental, I have a new one but it's more for fictionpress stuff; )
You're SO complex in your thinking/reviewing, it's fun to bend around. No I wouldn't describe myself as dangerous, and I didn't mean it in terms of personality; I meant it more in the sense of being unpredictable relationship-wise, which is one of my sins. (I think fickle describes it well). And your complex about always being right sounds familiar.
Me and my sister are entirely different, (thankfully), you saw that. I'm glad she's exploring her talents though, a lot of her older, unposted works are songs.
The "we do as we please" thing; interesting how you'd have separated it with a period or something. I like that slant, but to me it would feel a little overemphasised. (you've opened up a possibility though and it's gonna take a while to consider it through).
Besides that, I was unpleasantly surprised by this. I'd never considered you'd ever be silenced by someone (though I've considered changing pen names since my mum found it), but your voice is still inexcusable and one that not many could ignore. That doesn't mean it's always right (something I've had to learn slowly), but it does mean it's got more chance of adapting until it is. So yeah, powerful reminder of how temperamental even the most solid of things seem. I'm glad you bounced back though, very glad.

This is so heartfelt that just is so hurtful when people try to silence your true self and when one is able to express their fellings its a harsh world.

You probably get this often, but I find your style of poetry quite poignant. I have read some other works of yours. The subjects and lines very emotional, yet almost like a needle (if..that made *any* sense...). I would suggest the more traditional style or poetry, as a change of pace perhps, but I find that your style very enjoyable, if not depressing (a good thing when dealing with poetry- anything that can stir the emotions is a highly praise-able piece). I hope to read more of your works!

This makes me wonder what was being said, makes crave for more of the situation. The way the last four lines were put was great. A nice chilling touch for the end, and i like the comaparison between a writer with out her pen and a newborn. Truly great. Keep up the amazing work.

I’ll never forget that you silenced me.
you made me lose my words."
What a powerful start! Clever use of repetition, smooth vocabulary, smart line breaks. You said what had to be expressed the way it had to be expressed; what else besides minimalism should one use to talk about silence?
"I shut up for you.
I’ll never forget that you silenced me
because what I was saying was about you
and you couldn’t deal
had become your face
I stared you down
on my silence."
The nucleus of the poem expressed with such density. That was a truely brilliant poem (and I forgot to say, that the message/theme/meaning or whatever was awesome). Let us not forget the remarkable use of repetition in the ending.
Fantastic poetry that was, and you'll surely end up in my faves in some kind of a way.
