Reviews for Trust Again
Chasing Skylines chapter 1 . 4/25/2009
I like how you showed that "she" was the mother; I found out with the "if my brother remembers her he was only two when she left" lines. I liked the slipping of backstory, with the line "Maybe she ran out of drug money" and the contempt from the narrator towards the mother.

[but I can’t forgiver her.]

Shouldn't that be "forgive?"

[and with tears in her eyes says]

I don't know about poetry, but shouldn't there be a comma after "says," since it's a dialogue tag?

I liked the ending because of how you showed the potency of the words "I'm sorry."
Manuel Fajar chapter 1 . 8/29/2006
As I go back & look at thoughts now old,

You wrote and loaded on pages as ghosts,

Their skeletal phantasms haunt my soul,

As they reach out their thin dry bones and crush,

Leaving all rose petals hurricane strewn;

I forget that past tragedies can hold,

Entrapped in sepulchres full of green molds,

Feelings cherished that none hold by you sole,

Shared in sad poem songs of a fair thrush,

With melodies enchanting in their croon;

Penetrating 'til tears makes our soul fold,

As if set upon by murdering hosts,

In a dark alley walking all alone,

So that fear and tremors from inside gush,

Inciting heart to run and escape soon;

O,—what a tale of youth that you have told,

Assimilated now for years in posts,

& Yet, it seems that no one can atone,—

So perhaps, only time without rush,

Can gentle heal with balms of silver moon.

p.s. Now don't forget your promise to post! Yes, I'll take a laptop this time. Though it'll be in an archive while I look to glean some new angle on some old deeds. m

i can really feel the intensity in this one, and the need for the apology. keep going!
beti213 chapter 1 . 6/17/2005
hm... this has a bite throughout but I don't think I believe you when you suddenly switch from blame to forgiveness... it just doesn't sound realistic. could be fixed with a little tweaking, though-up to then, I loved it; it tells a story thoroughly and deeply. well written.

ShadowNemesis chapter 1 . 5/2/2005
Wow... the end of this poem gave me chills. It was very well written in that it accurately reflects the thoughts and emotions of those who are put in that situation, and it's so moving... it shows the conflict in the speaker's point of view and also the desire for the better... SO GOOD!

You would not believe how completely and utterly I can relate to this. You wrote this so well, too. You described it... perfectly. Well done. _
