| itsonlyme07 chapter 1 . 10/26/2005
This was great! My favorite line by far is "He wrote love letters in place of rings" It just is a great line, I don't know why. Good Job!

he wrote lover letters in the place of rings - I don't know why I liked this line so much, but I did! I like the simplicity and the shape of the poem too.

An excellent rhyme! The last line, "he sings", is to me the most powerful of the whole poem. It's so... triumphant. Very nice, and thank you always and again for your reviews.

The emotions described by the way this poem is conveyed are perfectly considered, and hit each mark bang on target.
| Chandra-Moon chapter 1 . 10/13/2005
This had such exquisite rhythm.
| hoowdoideletethisaccount chapter 1 . 10/13/2005
Mm, that was lovely. Very concise, strong, raw, just pure expression and sadness and somehow-it makes me feel elated. Maybe just from the sheer strength of the writing. It's a pleasure to read something like this. It shows your gift.

I love the flow of this. I love: "he wrote lover letters in the place of rings," there's something spectacular about it. there's something great about this poem (that I can't figure out) that makes me shudder.
