Reviews for Trendies
HaylesHayles chapter 1 . 12/18/2014
Actually, I don't really know what to say. But nevertheless I wanted to leave a comment. You took your time writing, and showing this to us, so you deserve words of respect.

I see the statement, I understand it. But I cannot say who the "good" or the "bad" guys are. I think that everyone is seeking attention in a way. Some try to impress their peers, their parents or whoever, and some just try to find a way of waking up themselves. A trend? Maybe, perhaps people these days can't talk to others anymore. Maybe they don't even know how to feel themselves, to look at themselves or to understand their own thoughts.

I like your straightforwardness.

Never a good idea to be trendy...

I understand, I suppose, if in a dimmer way that someone more skilled than I at my life's work. I know the grief intimately, but I never actually harmed myself because my parents have a habit of walking in on me while I'm naked.

And because I'm slightly obsessed with blood. The color, the scent...It's beautiful!

Okay, I'm done being freaky...sort of...

but self-deprecation is the new black.

sarcasm aside, i love this poem and everything it stands for. it speaks oodles of truth.
Countess Chocula chapter 1 . 4/21/2006
Great poem. Definatelly a favorite. I love the rhythm and the wording.

I can't stand people who do that. Just like you said in your last stanza, it's not cool. It's a serious problem, and you're just mocking the people who do it seriously when you do it to be a "trendy".

(thanks for the review, by the way!)

I'm sorry...I really do hate posers...but I don't really enjoy this either..I do know some people who aren't posers and this makes me pissed. Mostly b/c some people honestly have problems that need to be resolved and aren't just pitiful posers. I for one did not let people know I was a cutter. (past tense of course) It was not an attention thing at all. I don't write about this poem pisses me off. Just a little. But I do like that you are butally honest about it. Because like you, I think that people need to cut it out. And get a life.
