|Reviews for Silent Escape|
| The Postscript 1/19/07 . chapter 1
Glad I inspired someone, that's probably a first. I changed my pen name a few months ago, but if you search for the pen name 'silentescape' my new pen name will show up. Guess it wasn't relevant to what I believe in or who I am anymore. Another author critisized a poem of mine and (after a lot of anger spewed on her part and explanation on mine) really made me think about my pen name, why I'm writing, and how the two should connect. I also went back to this quote, by Henri Nouwen. “When we become aware that we do not have to escape our pains, but that we can mobilize them into a common search for life, those very pains are transformed from expressions of despair into signs of hope.” Though fellow fp authors might not understand the meaning of my new pen name, it's a much better fit for why I write, and more importantly, why I share what I write on fp. : )
Great poem. I can definitly relate to it in certian aspects, but not all. I think one reason many children get so absorbed into books and poetry is because it is an escape at first from reality. But as we grow we learn we can never escape, and for those who hang on long enough, it becomes more than an escape, if we let it. It becomes a serch for life. Glad I found this ... I was actually doing a search to my own page to avoid logging in but accidentially searched under stories instead of pen names and this came up. Wonderful write, and keep writing, too. k.

a very unique piece I like all the escapes you refer to and the imagery you use. _ and acting out the characters from books and stuff, really good. Keep up the good work :) *hug* :)

Don't always think that. the fights get worse, but hopefully, they end up forgiving eachother. Thats the only thing you can hope for. But its good that you can find an outlet when they're fighting. I'm sorry, i'm just preaching off of personal expierence. Nice poem, it really gives a good perspective from your own mind. Thoughts are deep and intelligent.
