Interesting. The thoughts kind of seem jumbled but belong to one piece at the same time. Good. :D

It's a little late, but here I am, returning the review favor. This one caught my eye because I once had a friend who cut off eight (not quite eleven) inches of my hair, which I haven't even trimmed since then. I love this poetry. So, a poem for a poem:
So cold, fingertips like frostbiteAnd warm cadences far past eyes that feel-Feel coldness, a jealousyWorks that cannot be mine
I feel-Warm pleasure at reading, like hallowed books, almostbut cold screen and seeping wordsthat can never be mine, and-warm pleasuremixing with jealousylike a lover of books, melted with- table wax and blue veined ink-with flowing words and cadences unlike the jerkiness of mine,
Jerking Fingers and cold words of mine,And cooling cadences of salves of yours.
A poem for a poem.
I like the lines "that I would remember only words/rather than feelings." When I'm upset, I'll sometimes repeat the events (usually involving a boy, predictable) and resculpt them in my head until I'm satisfied with my story and I'll only remember the words I describe the situation with, not the way things actually happened or the way I felt, and lie to myself... when I'm very upset. And one must be very upset to cut off eleven inches of one's own hair. Awesome work. Keep it up!

I remember when my dad left and I was going through a very difficult period, I shaved of all my hair. This poem really captures the intensity of those feelings without sounding weak. I loved it.~Tru

Hey! First off, thanks for your review. I greatly appreciated it. And secondly, I love this poem! I cut my hair off once too (Locks of Love, right?), and I can relate to this poem very well.
Thanks so much, once again.

The fact that you have thus far received 54 reviews -soon to be 55-hould say it all, shouldn't it?But, by jove, I've only just begun my becrazed rant. )-"...feltthe stingof yearspassing me byand the inchesfreezing meinstead of warmth to be felt..."I loved that part. I like the way you've mixed up the lengths of the lines; some short and others really long. But those lines were really cool."...I smileat the gainof all that I lost..."ELEVEN inches? Really? Ohmygosh. I can't even begin to imagine that. But I love the above metioned section. I love paradoxes."..I cut all of my hair offbut I’m still the same girl."I love taht part too. For true beauty, emotion, yaddayadaya comes from within.-I really love your writing. I'd read some more, but right now my mums on the warpath and I have to study. Bah, humbug. Darn school.

Again: honest. You have a knack for that type of compliment to throw itself at you, would you agree?

wow! i find myself so speechless after i read your work! this one also takes my breath away. 11 inches? i can't even fathom what you were feeling then and when you wrote this...fantastic work!

Gosh, that is soo sad! You brought tears to my eyes - literally! I will no longer feel the same, not after reading THIS!
I'm really sorry about Jessica (right?). None of my friends were ever lost before. Two years...
You cut your hair off? I can't do that, not ALL my hair. Maybe bit after bit, but not ALL! I hope you didn't really cut all your hair off. Because that's such a waste! Years' growth, and it's all gone!

Definitely something "Foolish Games" would push one to do. I like the way you set this up, with some longer lines and some choppy lines. It seems very lyrical, somewhat warm, very nice imagery. Reality's something harsh, something portrayed too simply. (er, got lost for a minute, sorry)

"I smile/at the gain/of all that I lost."
Absolutely heart wrenching. I can relate a lot. This is almost too close for comfort. Thank you for this.
