from beneath the bell jar chapter 1 . 2/12/2007
wow this poem was the epitome of a perfection I can't explain. It was perfect and I loved it. Esp. the stanzas about Valentine's day, looking for Narnia in all the lockers, and singing disney songs, and also the bit about Sylvia Plath, well, the whole poem. Perfect. I loved the madness of it - the denial (when she says all men are wimps), and trying to escape reality. Great piece. Not sure I understand the ending though *pout* but I will reread. Once again, utterly fantastic.

Wow. I'm lost for words, I loved every line of this.

sadly frightening. love the last two stanzas especially. you're very good with tying things up at the end. crazy is all a matter of perspective (as are most things in life, but hey). liked this v. much.

i think it was effective the way you jump around from scenes of fairy tales, to romance to popoular literaure and then brought it all back to familiar scenes like school. the dropping words worked well. 'lust-red' was brilliant, brilliant, rate my poetry when you get the chance
Manuel Fajar chapter 1 . 5/21/2005
a choice is not for condemnation's sake,

in life so many paths to climb one hill,

while tesselations fill night sky's journey,

yes my friend,—we are quite mad you and I,

but in the company of eight billion,

minds that delusional believe they're sane,

there's always hope of large digressions fond,

excursions into worlds that they can't see,—

i've been through rabbit-holes and mirrors flat,

inhabited in lands where love exists,

seen places where music is red heart's soul,

discovered golden means that treasure life,

and I can tell you this with surety,

your mind is the most precious of all gifts,

nurture it,—as tender as an orchid,

for you will offer world a beauty rare.

I was shocked, startled, stunned and surprised by the subject matter of this poem. It is sad.

I like.

Your disjointed storytelling is beautifully lyrical. Going on favorites!

You're sending loads of mixed messages. And they're all alarming.

Are you referring to yourself? (Narnia and all) Except some of the allusions seem a bit irrelevant.

(the WOODBRIDGE home)

The last line intrigues me. I don't know why.

Love, Livvy. I've been WAITING for you to update...

Have I told you before you're an amazing writer? I'm sure I have, but just in case: you're awesome. Definetly one of my favorites of all time. Hardly ameture to me.
