I do ballet but im not as strict on my practicing as other girls who go to fancy private schools where they have 8 people in the entire grade and they are beautiful dancers but so un happy...They dedicate their lives to one thing..but they really despise it but to others its the only thing she's good at..this poem makes me think of one girl inparticular in my class who is quiet but no shy and stands alone and only smiles one of the fake barbie smiles while performing.

Blech, I have ballet tonight. I hate it.
Anyway, this poem is just another fantastic piece of yours. You're very very talented. And now you're on my favorites list :).

This is an excellent poem. It evokes strong imagery but at the same time maintains a steady rhythym. You manage to take it also from one point of view about the ballerina to another about how she is your bitten fingernails and back to the ballerina and finally to the end which is a good way to end it, with a twist that sums the whole thing up but keeps it beautiful at the same time. You get the feeling that the ballerina is beautiful and deeply unhappy at the same time. She maintains her dignity and with it her aloofness and her loneliness. I know I may have this all wrong but this is what I got from it. It is an very good, strong poem. Keep writing.

I love your wording and imagery. As an ballerina, it's also really nice to see one depicted without fluffy pinkness. Beautiful words!

flows like blood... digit much.
| destinee ariarti chapter 1 . 10/11/2005
overall, the tone isn't terribly dark, but the ending makes it so, and it's perfect.
these two lines in particular (I thought) were very powerful
"accused but never convicted
righteous but never righted."
keep up the beautiful work

So I decided to click on one of your poems and here I am thirty minutes later reading the rest of your poems. I am now totally obsessed with your writing, not because of your amazing details or awesome imagery, but because of the emotions you evoke by simply your words. You really trigger people's emotions because of your realistic and intense wording. Amazing work. I really admire your writing.
