Sorry for making a review to not review work... I was intending to send you an email about your reviews of my work, but since I didn't find one, I'll just have to copy it into here.

You reviewed my poem "Majestic Flames":

"Why do you want to suffer? I'm not trying to lead you to Salvation or anything, but I feel bad that you want to be haremd like that. Still, very well-written. Makes you cringe to read:)"

Ah... The poem is very removed from my real feelings. Sure, I am somewhat masochistic, but I exaggerated it a LOT with my poetic liscence _

And about "Rerouted":

"Wow. Your veins moved? I didn't know that happened. I'm sorry you cut, but it's not the answer to your problems. If you die, you either suffer more, or you're reincarnated into another life, and have to do

high school all over again from the start. So, it's not worth it from any viewpoint, in my opinion."

Well, my veins didn't actually move... but my side veins became more prominent to make up for the main vein being kinda... wrecked... so it looks like it moved. And I don't necessarily believe in either reincarnation or the afterlife, so part of me thought of it as an absolute end. Also, the main reasons for my suicide attempt were to influence others and to stop being a burden to others, and ending my own pain was only an added bonus. (I agree it still was stupid though, b/c I didn't even think as to all the good things I do that would've ended had I succeeded.)

About "Heroin Addict":

"I'm so sorry that they did that to you. But, all in all, when it comes to addiction you have to depend on yourself, and I'm sorry they did that to you:("

This isn't autobiographical. I've never used heroin (quite thankfully!) But this is not fiction, either. It's about a newspaper article where they did that to people because they didn't have enough funding. (grumble, grumble... damn tax cuts...) *ends rant*

As for why I still cut myself... one word: addiction. It's getting a lot better now, though. And as for suicide, those pieces are rather old. I'm no longer suicidal and haven't been for a few months.

And, of course, thank you so much for reading and reviewing my work!

Seeker of the Way chapter 1 . 11/10/2003
I've written a few reviews by now, and I can see that I look at them in two ways. Technical and emotional resonance.

I suppose since most of MY stuff is my way of expressing my feelings (straight guys are NOT supposed to feel these strong emotions - stupid society), so I am forced find another way to express myself.

It just seems society allows females to express themselves more? But, there is a price there. In the movies, the guy can love the girl, but IF he is a nerd he can loose. But if a girl loves a guy, he is a JERK if he for not returning the love. Who made up these rules? Movie after moveie, TV show after TV show - blech!

But here (finally, essay ending review beginning) we see the female side in a way movies and TV and society don't really tell very often. The "I like him, why doesn't he see?" The conflict between push and pull is wonderfully expressed.

It also shows a sweet gentleness.

That is amazing since I went through this ALL the time!

I wanted her friendship because she was a great human being. But, for a select few, I so wanted something further, deeper. Being a Taurus, I thought I could just show you my soul and you would see it and fall for me.

I know what this is like, from the male side. Not exactly, but I feel allowed into your soul briefly - and what a nice place!

If only more people would read and feel more poetry like this, I wonder if the greed and ignorance could still have hold?

listened to evanescence, 1 & 2 while I read/wrote this; maybe that explains the verbosity!

You didn't have an email listed so here's mine ""...i really appreciate your fair and balancedness (i dont think thats a word but oh well lol) about things...and yeah i try to keep an open mind but a lot of times people think that means you have to agree with everything a person thinks so i get into arguments with my cousin about it lol

yeah i had a debate like that once and we had to fight to prove that something was right even if we didn't believe in was hard, but it does let you learn the other side...and also i dont believe in homosexuality because of being a christian but i would fight to the death for their right to be what they want to be and i would NEVER discriminate (my exboyfriend was bisexual and we still are friends) kudos to you on that petition...i got an email from my friend about it but i wasnt sure how you signed it...i'd like to keep in touch if you write any new poems :D
