Dark but well written.

...this is wonderful... I can't even form words, I... Oh my god
| Subterfuge chapter 1 . 6/7/2010
This poetry is mysterious in terms of how one can interpret it, but as should poetry expresses itself, through meanings interpreted by one's own.
To me this poetry resembles a symbolically evil clutch of a dank and depressed image, probably a guilt, or a depressive thought culminating to further demoralize the poet. These images, thoughts and voices grow louder and with each passing time it gets worse... depressively anti-climatic as this poem should be. Very deathly indeed

this is a great poem! I wish I could write like this!
| letyoursoultakeflight chapter 1 . 11/15/2009
Wow, very evocative... its so hauntingly beautiful
| setne chapter 1 . 11/5/2009
As another reviewer pointed out, the metre and the rhythm here are well-crafted, thought out. Though quite a dark piece, it is a dark beauty nonetheless. I enjoyed reading this, well done.
Many thanks for the reviews.

this poem is simply amazing.
| WordSpeak chapter 1 . 9/10/2009
This is one of the most beautiful poems I ever read on this site. Great images, sounds, and diction! I'm favoriting this
| gold against the soul chapter 1 . 9/4/2009
Like me, you enjoy the technical side of things - a steady metre and the occasional rhyme. That is lovely to see, when so much today is written in free verse, often out of lethargy rather than preference (admittedly, I too am guilty of that). This is an accomplished little piece with some atmospheric imagery. I especially like the first two lines - simple but all the more chilling for their nakedness.
| The Candle Thief chapter 1 . 8/23/2009
"But the soul is close to death."
I liked the irony in that sentence-how you painted the soul as being mortal.
I love all the tactile imagery you used in this piece. Well done. :D
| Mirabella chapter 1 . 7/24/2009
Lovely poem, the first line really gets me into it.
But i thought perhaps that maybe the 4th and 8thlin needed another syllable? Dont mind me, i probably read it wrong! :)
I really like the imagery in this, and the name of the poem. :) Lovely.
| 403 Forbidden chapter 1 . 7/11/2009
I like this, the imagery is quite vivid and intense. This seems short yet very substantial to me, for some reason. I love the, "Seconds now are useless," because you phrased it with an uncommon sentence structure, which seems to separate it from normal speech in a way. Nice job.
| Sweet Lunacy chapter 1 . 7/1/2009
Wonderful. Beautifully morbid. I love the imagery.
| NineteenxStars chapter 1 . 6/4/2009
