The Words You Wish You Said chapter 1 . 9/20/2007
Only thing to say is that I really like it.


It's just...

No words possible.

Even though it's short.
Definition chapter 1 . 9/3/2007
This poem displays the true, raw meaning of anorexia. I really admire the line, "My skin is layered on top of itself like tree rings"...stunning. Definite fav.

Holy...cow. I am really speechless at the sheer...sadness and feeling in this poem. The last two lines have such a wonderful flow and cross-rhyme. Just-wow. I'm sorry I can't say more. Just wow.
Chandra-Moon chapter 1 . 5/29/2007
The last stanza is phenomenal. I've been thinking about it for just repeats constantly in my head.

i really like your writing style. this is so vivid, and i love the last part- "Emptiness/birthed in teh making of it"
Moondog Dozier chapter 1 . 5/8/2007
The vividness of this is remarkable. This truly encapsulates a modern issue, and puts it into human form. I'd say the second stanza was marvelous, but the first one was as well, so the whole work is specifically captivating. Good write. MD:77.
Ajna chapter 1 . 5/7/2007
I love the concept of skin-like-tree-rings. This is a lovely, fresh write on what I take is anorexia? Beautiful.

poetic abortion chapter 1 . 5/2/2007
I am tentative to say what I think this is about, since anorexia never really seemed "political" to me but, whatever; it gives me that vibe.

I love the first stanza-particularly, " three rings (viens, muscle, bones,...)"-is just gorgeous and the second is reassuring and, well, kind-of sad.

Oh, and beautiful.

in theory chapter 1 . 5/2/2007
Gross. Engrossed. Etc; so many poems about anorexia, but this is different (again). The tree imagery shows the reader something tangible, can't overlook it as a fashionable, forgettable metaphor. Pretty.

6 weeks to go! Then everything at college is settled and I'll readwritereview more. Probably. Hope everything/some things are settling down for you (settle seems to be a theme..?), erm yeah I'm guessing it's not exactly easy at the moment. Hang tough.

Tytherpol chapter 1 . 4/30/2007

the last stanza is clever and very much well worded.

i love your writings.
