Reviews for A Minute Too Late
The Autumn Queen chapter 1 . 9/14/2012
I don't like how this lacks punctuation to be honest because it impedes on the readability of this poem. I think it could have benefited greatly from the addition and variation of pauses beyond your line/stanza breaks.

I also don't like how you threw in a random capital for "minute" because it...well, basically it made me blink, stop and scratch my hair. Frankly, I don't get why you'd do that, especially since you repeat the line again towards the end without doing that.

I really like your last stanza though; a nice allusion to the "dying with regrets".

[Its a poem about death & how its too late to do things once you are dead]

Just the summary, but the its should be it's.

[Just a Minute too late]

That, minute being capitalized, was intentional, right?

I liked how you captured a moment before death, with the regrets a person would have and all those things now gone.

[So much you would've said and done

All just a minute too late]

I like how you used "would've" instead of "could've," as I had read at first, since would means that the narrator will, and not just can, if only it wasn't too late.

well, it's sad when you don't have chance to change, but life's like that.
Pierce Dorian chapter 1 . 7/25/2008
That was a great little poem. It makes you think how if you die before doing the things that you want to then you'll never have the chance again. Great job, though a bit short but that doens't matter.

Body stops moving,

But mind disintegrates slow,

Minutes to blackness.

good, good, good, good, can you read some of my work and tell me what you think?
A Face Worth Remembering chapter 1 . 1/1/2005
If you start getting sick of me, too bad. I do realize that this is like 2 years later, but I read some of your more recent works, and I desided to go back to the begining and now I cant 450 poems/story things. Anyway, this is so true. Doesn't everything jsut feel like its a minute too late though?~Elli

this is depressing, but oh so true, and it's really good. nice work!
Debbirooni chapter 1 . 3/26/2004
I like this poem a lot- a lot more than your other "depressing" poems... it shows that there's hope... in a sense. It's saying that you should reconsider what you do, and not make rash decisions, whatever you may be feeling. Good job on this poem.
quietdrama22 chapter 1 . 2/15/2004
And not to mention, the people that you left are also too late to tell you how they feel...keep writing.
And I know that this was a LONG time ago, but thanks for reviewing my stuff :)
Taka and Keichirou chapter 1 . 12/20/2003
i like this alot...always been wondering of how a person feel at the last moment when they jump off a building but then it could also apply to other forms of suicide...
flowerthief chapter 1 . 11/26/2003
