OMG, that was amazing. Someone commented that your writing is like a drug, and it is, b/c it's so damn addicting! This is a very dizzying poem, but with the subject, that's a good thing. I have no idea how you managed to accomplish this, but it's wonderful, and I thought of a friend of mine who went through an eating disorder when I read this. Amazing. Great work. Keep writing! :)

I love the way you worded the story here. "she's still not perfect yet" I loved that. Beautifully worded - it's so weird tho, because I'm writing an anorexia poem right now...anyway, great piece.

I love the way the rhyming seemed to add another layer to the poem- an almost sarcastic edge, somewhat bitter but with the beginnings of a smirk. And yet it was wonderfully empathetic, as if you knew exactly what the girl was feeling (which I hope you don't). Really great job. I love to see talented, intelligent people cover topics that could be so cliched otherwise.

Amazingly written. The rhymes were thought-provoking, and beautiful. Your descriptions were vivid which is very good in a poem like this.

"Throws it up and sits it up". Flowing, clever wordplay.

Just...raw. Truthful and raw.
Just one thing though - 'hilights' is spelt 'highlights'. Unless it's for dramatic effect, I suppose.

This is a great poem, although some of the lines don't make sense to me "shes throws it up and sits it up"-? Some of it is so clear and "wham!" and emotionally powerful, and some of it is imagery-ed into ambiguity :D So, yeah, I didn't understand all of it.
But I liked it. Especially the lines in italics. And especially, especially the first one. "and -she's still not perfect yet-" Man, sad. Good.

This is excellent, everything about it: the way you portray the skinny, bulimic girl who is never good enough for herself. Your writing is exquisite, your rhythms are perfect, it has such a feel with the rhyming and the beat.
To summarize: good poem, I enjoyed it. keep writing.
(oh: "and she's still not perfect yet." A simple line, but did wonders to the poem. I don't know why, but it was meaningful to me.)

i love that last line.. great poem
| White Tea and Ginger chapter 1 . 11/17/2005
The imagery and word choice and entire twisted theme here is great. It really brings this poem to life. Or death, perhaps- it seems that's where this girl is headed to.
As always, this is a fabulous piece.
