*jumps* Wasn't expecting that.

Like all great haikus, it was short and packed with all the emotions in anything else you've ever written. Fantastic.

deaths master C chapter 22 . 10/23/2003
very beautiful, and what a way to describe it too, i suppose strength is like that, lifes experiences, lifes betrayals...very intriguing indeed master chica. i loved how you used the word "whispers" gave the poem a haunting quality, and it gave me the image of a heart with swirls of translucent black smoke swirling around it...very amazing. the layers were very cool, first is the heart, soft and innocent, then the betrayal sets in finally turning the heart hard on the outside - protecting the soft interior *i sound like im describing chocolates by never mind...*, like a sheild. very *clever* your getting more clever each day i say, kudos.

i really do muchly love your haikus, every single one leaves me thinking...often about how damn clever you are...but often about the contents and what they mean. making me think is an accomplishment altogehter, so kudos x2.

A very thoughtful and deep haiku, nothing of what I expected. It brought to mind the scene of Cinderella and a very unhappy relationship, a reflection of the infatuation of today giving way to love gone sour. Beautiful and Bittersweet.

*jumps like a maniac into glitterjewele's inbox*

I'M BAACCKK !

*grins* Yes, it's me. Sorry about being gone for long, stupid business. Begone, now ! Okay, now I have the time to review all your beautiful stuff. Whee !

First of all, this is chilling and ripping and so glorious in it's portrayel of pain and gore. I really looked forward to reading something about Nero. I knew he was a very brutal dictator, and one fact I remember about him was his habit of using christians as human torches for his garden party. So I read this with a shiver of foreboding. I loved how you kept it to how much pain the child caused the mother. i think my favorite line would have to be "fire and ice on the tip of an arrow" simply for the great contrast. Also the image of the crown serenly reflecting the scene was perfect. And i liked how you repeated silver in the second, and second-last line. Overall wonderful. I don't know how I stayed away !

Oh man! Excellent poems once again! And this one, amazingly haunting! Well done!

Ok so I lied...but it was worth it! So excellent, this. An alliterated haiku...awesome! And it could be both or either, really...but since your stuff tends to go beyond the obvious, I'll go with person. A lovelorn lady named Lily, perhaps?

(Oh! Who's alliterating now! lol)

You know, I'm actually not surprised that you're being published...that's awesome! And so is this poem, btw...it's 3 minutes to 1 in the morning, and I'm slightly braindead, so this eview might not be *quite* coherent, but I try. I love the way you set off big chunks of writing with a few words ("Again." "With her.") It really accentuates their meaning and lets it sink in. So many lines of this are just incredible...my favorite would ahve to be the last four though, especially the use of a book title for the last-very original! Well, I'm off to do VJAS. Seriously. I will do this...gah...

*hates school*

Dirty Wallpaper chapter 21 . 10/16/2003
wow, very cool, i loved the cleverness...heaps and heaps of genius.

i especailly loved the lines...

"As the good doctor

Morphine

Will explain shortly,"

amazing, gave the whole poem a warped quality...after that i was seeing pictures of green skies and blue grass - im lovin it.

"That the sordid gash

Engraved in your arm

Is Imagination’s plaything,"

very cool, just, i loved.

kudos chica, god i love this series...
The Black Rider chapter 21 . 10/14/2003
Wow, that was very deep. I had to read it over a second time once I finished it. Doctors tend to do that; they're like "Reassurance Men." Great addition, as always. Keep writing.

*stares slack-jawed at the screen* *claps weakly* Wow. You're good at this, you know? Heh. Keep it up. These poems are wonderful! :D
Lady B.V Rose chapter 21 . 10/13/2003
How DO you do it! You just pack all these emotions into one tiny little piece of poetry and blow me away, this was fan-tas-tic!
