Turn to yourself, look inside yourself, and learn to respect yourself, for if you don't, nobody else will be able 's what I would say to a person if they came to me with that problem. I don't know if it would help, though.A very meaningful and deep poem, I enjoyed it very much. I like the images especially. The thorns, 'lashes', very

Nice! I love haikus, they're fun if you don't want to get bored with long poems. "Mirror lashes out at you" thats a really personification. I'm not sure if it's personification...it could be metaphor. whatever. Good work.
poetic abortion chapter 6 . 3/15/2012
Very expressive and really true. :( Its so sad and honest and yet it holds so much. - Well done as always Eirien! The poem was simply gorgous as all your works. :P

You turn to that which has no mirror... which does not have a care about the standard the world sets. When you can't trust your own eyes anymore, you turn to that which is ever trustworthy.

Very expressive poem... a little different to what I'm used to from you.

God's changing me... I was once on who shied away from the world hence 'shymk'. The name is a confession over myself which isn't the same anymore. Stratiotes is a name chosen for me by a friend of mine. It's Greek for warrior or soldier.

A great title, Eirien, and a powerful poem. I love this piece. Well wrote

I don't know which one I prefer.. I like the idea of being weighed down, it's more easily pictured than "heavy", but then the last part of the first poem seems overly energetic.

The concept is familiar to me, I've felt like that many a morning... Reminded me of Marianne and Mrs Dashwood from Sense and Sensibility. Indulgence of grief.

Again a very interesting metaphor! A hedgehog hurts others as self-defence, but indeed nobody knows how the hedgehog feels..

Ooh, I like this one, I've always wanted to write something connecting the ideas of silence and coldness. The sense of suspension, stillness and locks (interlocking parts of a crystal) make the emotions seem rigid, real but unable to show. A stunning piece!

A classic depiction of sorrow ) Great word choice e.g. "mingle" "bitter".

A very interesting image.. I guess the limitation of haiku means you can't write too many words, so it's all down to my imagination...

Just as plastic bags torn loose cannot be restored to its original shape, words can never be taken back. A very innovative metaphor )
