Reviews for He Who Was

My Interpretation:
Your choice of words or diction is very interesting. I take a few words such as:
1. Silver: Why this color? Why silver, not gold? In my opinion, the color silver is used to show the attributes of ancient and wise yet soft,not as strong as the color gold.
2. Sanctuary: hmm... a forbidden place? A sacred place? A place where hope resides?
3. fallen: compare the pharase "fallen veil" with "drapery veil" or "hanging veil". Fallen veil gives the impression of something being revealed. Maybe a secret? Maybe an unknown attitude? (picture a veil which covers a face suddenly falls and reveals the face).
4: The pronouns "you" and "he": Obviously, I sense a comparison here. "You" is being compared to "he or him". However, if I try to relate this to the phrase "fallen veil" in second line, I feel like "he" and "you" is the same person. Feels like you've changed your perception towards someone after his veil has fallen which suggest the moment of revealing dark secret...
Well, it's just an interpretation of me. Maybe you have your own message...

Good, I love this piece. But a Haiku has 17 syllables, this has way more. And they are tradionally written in a 5-7-5 pattern. Either way it's great

Woot! I likes it! 'Cept... It's not a hiaku... A hiaku is five, seven, five. That's not. But I still likes it.
By the way... Do I know you in real life? 'Cause you said much loves, and I say that all the time, and you're Juliet, and that's the play my Drama group is doing.

How can something so... small be so touching? I love it. *nods* One things: your nothing like him. Should be: you're nothing like him.
That's me; the spelling/grammar freak.
