|Reviews for Pretty in her Plague|
| Lady Fingers chapter 1 . 12/30/2007
As creepy as it may sound
this quote: "Pretty? No, nothing more then a jar of piss
to pour her plagues through."
went on my wall, i have a poem/quote wall
i thought of it as so cruel and sincere
that it struck me, i think the same way about someone i know
so, it went on my wall to shock the eyes of the few friends that i have that are born again christians.

makes me think.

Wow, there is so much anger in this. Honest and almost cruel, no sympathy spared.
(I have to admit...I really like the word 'cunt'. I use it more often than is acceptable, it's so harsh and vulgar and yet, almost funny.)
I also liked 'listen to you take words and rape them/clumsily like a virgin'. Rape and virgin...you never think of a virgin committing rape. More vulgarity in this girl. She is pretty, yet it seems in an easy way that is repulsive. Never beautiful...simply pretty. I have met very few people that can't be considered pretty, dressed nicely, wearing makeup, smiling. Pretty is an easy thing to do.
And plague...these two things are so odd and interesting to relate. I've been rambling, and I still don't fully understand this poem. I'm going to have to think on it and come back.

Your writing is so awe inspiring, it makes me gasp a thousand times over and envious. I love how you can elaborate on things in such details, the language you use, the phrases you pick. You make me feel.

m there was some stunning imagery here. although i thought pretty was used too much...but i guess it just gets redundant after awhile. other than that, i thought the idea of the poem was interesting. nice work.

I could almost resent your talant. But you are too talanted to be resented I think. This was quite beautiful, in a very horrible way. Not just the obvious disdain shown in it, but something in the things behind the words, like you are an illusionist and laughing as you make our eyes wide with the words so normal and over-used yet you put them amazingly in to place. I don't know how to describe it.
There was a certain part I adored:
"I listen to you take words and rape them
clumsily like a virgin would, a thousand
insults that dance across my ear lobes; down
my chandelier ear rings, across the scar on my neck;
underneath my breasts that flaunt your
That is so brutally raw and beautiful. Just the image, just the words make my throat numb and my tongue itching for my own words I can't possibly describe like you could. All I can say is wonderful job. Again I am delighted.
There are so many things that I don't agree with that you say, but you say them in a way that I have to think about it. That is what I find wonerful about your writing. It's just amazing.

Theres a power struggle here and something revengeful and almost bitter. The language is harsh, raw and powerful and written in a way that cuts to core and kind of shocks you. I like how you repeat 'pretty' as if your stripping it down and showing its meaningless quite like the act between the two girls, its almost unfeeling as if the girl is showing the other she is worthless 'wasting of this poem'. Pretty damn amazing.

I love the poem despite it underlying viciousness. Keep writing! God bless.
