Reviews for Starving For Perfection
Eirien chapter 1 . 12/13/2004
Sounds almost like a child's song with the rhyme and rhythm, and the message therefore cuts all the deeper. the obsession, the compulsion, the feeling of superiority and control in this - you have captured it really well.

See where you're coming from, though I only starve myself from breakfast... For now. I wish people weren't this way, and wish we could just be comfortable with ourselves... But we're not, neither am I. Overall good poem. I love the lines 'Starving is what I will do, Until I am as thing as you.' Yeah... totally relate to this, which is the best thing, as far as writing is concerned... Not couting people's ability to write, which obviously comes first... Bleh, I'm rambling. Great job, I enjoyed this.
much love

Very Expressive, sadely people think this way. I understand your reasoning, but, nobody should go through this type of physical endourance within life itself. I just hope that you wont be this way your whole life, being who you are not is not life...being yourself is.

Oh the great joys of America's view on beauty...the skinnier the better. What a bunch of bull crap! But that asides, nice poem to capture this view.

I can relate to this poem, I go though times when I feel just like this. This is a bit like a few things I have wriiten, though mine don't rhyme because I'm crap at doing that lol

Amazing. Really well written, and I like the rhyme - which is rare. I usually hate rhymes. Bravo.

i have a friend who used to be like this. we all have insecurities about our looks and it shames me to say that i've been close the experience you mention in your poem. keep up the good work...
