Reviews for Lie
Kate Marshall chapter 1 . 5/15/2009
This is a prize review for the April Review Marathon by me, a Review Squader. :)

I really liked /how/ you wrote what you felt in this. I have a hard time reading things that are overly-emotional, I suppose, because most of the time, everything sounds so melodramatic. But this was very... sincere. It didn't sound fake or ridiculous by using sappy exaggerations. It felt realistic and honest.

Although I didn't like the single-spaced stanza. Your poem didn't distinctly separate thoughts, so I wouldn't have minded the lack of broken up stanzas if the length of the lines were different. It didn't have the same rhythm when the lines became longer, then switched to shorter, more choppy lines. The flow was a little unsteady for me.

Nice job, though. I really enjoyed reading the theme of it. And the word choices/phrasing you used, especially. :D

Wow, another sad one. Atleast at the end of this one you put a little spin, which I thought was good.

Wow. This is nice. Brings out the anger of the situation. I think a lot of people can relate to this (I know I can) so it's very understandable. Good work!
