the cereal killer chapter 1 . 10/2/2004
That was painful. I can't believe I've never read anything else by you before, because you are so amazing.
"seven-tone eyes and/earthswept hair with freckles/in your laugh to carry/him who needs/no one and everyone"
You make me feel so terrible for writing poetry that's so seemingly long-winded as compared to yours.
Sugar On The Asphalt chapter 1 . 9/22/2004
Oh god, this is my favorite poem.
It knoweth all. What imagery. What smell.
JazzPizza chapter 1 . 9/16/2004
I adore this. I really can't say anything else at the moment; only that as haunting as this is, I believe "him who needs" is probably more grammatically correct as "he who needs"...that is all.
Project Autumn chapter 1 . 9/16/2004
I love this. I love the musical references, and the beautiful descriptions you use. You describe certain things like no one else does, and yet the descriptions make perfect sense as if they've been used forever. The last stanza is absolutely wonderful; it's one of those endings that makes you go "Ohh," at the end, if you follow my meaning. :) Your artistic wording is amazing. So good.
