Reviews for The Shift In Silences
May Elizabeth chapter 1 . 3/2/2009
This poem is so realistic, and relateable.
TheMonomaniacalGoblin chapter 1 . 6/23/2008
I really liked this poem, it's straightfoward, and I think lots of people can relate!

You captured the feeling most of us feel in those awkward silences, really, this is awesome xD

Blissfully Sarcastic chapter 1 . 12/26/2007
I like it.

The flow and word choice isn't all that great...

But the idea was, as was the last few lines.

Few tweaks and it could be amazing.
GothicSpook chapter 1 . 11/16/2007
I like it! I hate awkward phone silences.

A Face Worth Remembering chapter 1 . 11/9/2006
I hate being there...

Been there, done that. Strange how things like that can only get so much harder as time goes on.
dancingintherain chapter 1 . 10/12/2006

breezy nostrils chapter 1 . 10/5/2006

someday-i-will chapter 1 . 10/4/2006
Interesting idea..I like it
myno chapter 1 . 10/3/2006
ah, simpleplan13, you're still here. After so much abscence I feel foreign in FP's colorful landscape. I'm contemplating posting one more poem. It's lovely to see that your work is still coming in all the time; this poem reminds me of so many awkward phone calls I've made in the past.
Hidden Lies chapter 1 . 10/3/2006
aww, this is really sweet. I like it.
heartbroken922 chapter 1 . 10/2/2006
love it. very meaningful.
Manuel Fajar chapter 1 . 10/2/2006
They say that Love's a chemical lasts months,—

¿Then why can some make it stay through the years,—

Past hard times, past all tears and past all doubts?

¿Is it just patience or a faith inspired,

Allows them to so nurture fragile heart?

I think that there's an obstinacy real,

That recognizes life is short my dear,

And, though believing in Heaven's import,

Would much prefer to create Eden here,—

While there is still a chance to Love caress;

While there's still chances to say, "I love you."

(For what a chance Soul takes when Love it leaves.)

Moon-Chaser chapter 1 . 10/1/2006
I like how you explain this. The feel of the poem. I can relate to this to an extent, I don't like talking on the phone though.

Keep it up.
