Reviews for Living vs Life

I like the last line..."You can do so much more than just breathe."
Wonderful. Exactly what I feel. And...*blushes* got a pixie keychain? In honor of moi? Well, probably you didn't buy it in honor of moi, but it's nice to think of it. Lol. Wonderful, wonderful poem. I love your writing!

"To live you must be alive, but being alive doesn’t mean you live."

OOh, how thought-provoking! It's similar to this line from Shakespeare's "Julius Caeser": "Cowards die many times before their deaths."

"It is perfectly plausible to have the ability of sight and yet be incapable of actually seeing."

'Tis true!

Another great piece.

Very, very true, and you expressed it perfectly. I really liked this!

Open your eyes.
I used that same phrase, punctiation and tone in one my poems which leads me to believe that we are quite similar when it comes our intention behind our verses. Although you write it better than I do.
I've read through most of your poems, trying to find a favourite and I think I've picked this one beacause of the simplicity of the meaning hiding behind words like 'plausible' and 'interchangeable'. People too often try to make life more complicated than it is.
Thank you for writing.

Gee, this reminds me of the days when I was very depressed. I was alive, but I didn't live. Thanks for writing this, I know exactly what you're talking about.

line five, "you're your eyelids" I think that was a typo...nice poem though! Good point, very good point.

-Amen to that!
Bubblewrapped chapter 1 . 1/5/2004
Wow. That was incredible. It read like apoem and yet it wasnt - quite - if you know what I mean. A lot of emotion in this piece, and a lot of truth. Awesome.

deep sigh
Um ... wow! so beautiful adn caring and loving and empathetic and ... I am going to have to print this out.
If only I had not tried adn failed mutliple times in multiple ways, I would jump right away! But, it does make me think, adn make me feel better.
GOD, I wish I had you life for just a moment, or could live a parrellel one.
Now I am just babbling, sorry. Very nice poem. GREAT sentiment and flow.
