Hey! I am here to share some exciting news! This poem was added to the miscellaneous category over on A Drop of Romeo! :)

Here's the Review:

"In “Paper Hearts”, Citrus Scented has shown the power of how little is more. This poem consists of three short stanza's and yet each one; even the sentences themselves; are dripping with the raw emotion of someone having their heart broken. Many techniques are used throughout this poem to make it visually stunning; as well as literary pleasing. Citrus Scented centred the entire text, used little love hearts to divide the stanzas but the bravest move was the lack of both capital letters and punctuation. This; in my opinion; just adds to the raw emotion, making it feel as if the character is genuinely that heartbroken they do not have time to sit and worry about a full stop after their sentences because it is a whirlwind of emotion, a wave that just needs to be set free! Add to this the beautiful imagery spun by Citrus Scented's words that allows the reader to imagine each moment, you have a poem that is a delight; despite it's topic; to read."

Keep writing,

Helen xo

I really like how you wove in the 'paper hearts' bit. Also, not using capital just adds to the feeling of the poem. Very good! And congrats on the nomination, good luck!

Interesting, I like the honest emotion behind this piece. The imagery of biting your wrists is particularly commonplace, original, and thus very effective at really communicating that "oh god I can never have you" emotion. You actually made me remember this emotion, which was awesome and really terrible at the same time...The one critique I would say, on the line "silly me like always i forgot-" I would add a comma- "silly me, like always i forgot". That makes the flow more powerful, in my opinion. It's unlikely that you'll change this piece now however, so regardless-well done. You've created a poignant bit of writing.

Simple and beautiful.

This was almost childlike, in a way. Simple word choices, excellant stanzas.

I really liked the line,

"for your turquoise eyes

to paint me pretty."

Excellant. I'm actually inspired to write some poetry of my own now, great job, I don't get inspired very easily.

Hmm. The hyphen in the last stanza seemed out of place to me. I don't know. Maybe it was intentional. Keep up the good work.
