Hmm...jealousy, perhaps, was the cause of her overwhelming rage to cause revenge? Judging by the last paragraph of your piece, I think that she had the wrong person in her grasp. I got that idea when you mentioned, "In this quick defining blink of an eye I see- it's not him, and my world crushes."Anyways, fantastic job with a bit of spelling errors. Dark, and hauntingly beautiful.

Ah, I was going to say this reminded me a lot of a poem by Carol Ann Duffy, which in fact was about Haversham, if slightly modernised. This is well written and has some good description and phrases - I particularly like "videos on fast play smoke back into my sight".

This is the first thing I've read of yours ... it's good ... dark, powerful, grim, great imagery. I like it. I'll read the rest of your stuff when I have time. As you're such a nitpicky reviewer, I'd like you to read my story 'Layers of Lies' ... it takes a while to get going, but by Chapter 8 ... it starts to roll! I like the Dickens reference too ... yeah, good!

i love the final paragraph. i love the imagery.
[Smoke clogs out from the house and I stare, wondering if I've killed him. Trying to find an ounce that cares.]
i *really* love that part. i can't say that i've ever reached that point in my life, but i can kind of relate on a smaller level.
as for my new fpress account, that's for my original fiction. i decided to split up my poetry/fiction into separate accounts so i can keep track of my favorite stories :P lol.
also, what was your penname before this one? i've been trying to figure it out but i can't remember :P

Hi! I like the stream-of-consciousness kind of feel to this. A lot of powerful imagery, really well written. As a one-shot it's great, but it would be a little overdone if it were much longer, so good choice there. There were a few typos here and there, just minor punctuation stuff.
