I have to say this is an interesting idea, getting inspiration from pennames. Though I do wish there was an answer key to finding all the names since you did challenge us to try.

One thing that seemed odd was the comma before and. I just didn't understand why it was there.

I'm intrigued by your misspelling of sinderella. It doesn't seem to be a penname (I checked!). So I'm wondering where that idea came from. However, I'm not really liking it underlined. Just seemed out of place a bit.

I do really like the piece. "Fairytalr faulure" is a great image. And I really love those first two lines, how you describe the clock is really wonderful.

Love the enjambment at the end. Gives that powerful one word at a time thing. And of course, fun to pick out the author's names (I recognized lackluster, like a lover and whisper something profound in this one, and I'm sure there are others, too). Keep writing! :)

I like this poem because it's short, simple and sweet. :)

The only thing I didn't really like were the last two lines because I felt your poem started out very strong but the last two lines weren't as strong as I had hoped. I think taking out the last two lines would leave me with a stronger impression than right now. Are the last two lines in reference to Romeo and Juliet?

I like this poem because I found the ending to be a bit bittersweet and sad. It contrasts the beginning quite well and the aesthetic look of the ending works very well.

"your name will/ fall off my lips in a breath that could/ only be heard through the murmuring/ of october's lies and acid rainbows"

I particularly liked this part because it sounds really beautiful and heartwarming. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Haha. I also like how you incorporated october lies's penname in here - very clever. ;)

I like the references you used in this poem because I find it quite clever. Haha. I also like the subtle hints to the elements of the Cinderella fairytale such as the "clockwork", "old grandfather" "slippers". The part I liked the most has to be the last part where you mention "sinderella" losing her dignity, thus becoming a fairytale failure - it made me laugh a little. But I also have to pity your version of sinderella just a little bit. This poem was quite enjoyable. Thanks for the read. :)

Thanks for understanding!

hey this is me! :D

Thank you so much I'm very flattered to be in this collection of such lovely poetry! I like the second to last and last stanza, it's similar to how I try to live. Thanks again!

Well, at least she's optimistic. There's hope at last.

Ode to melancholy was awesome! "you're just another weed waiting

until the day that it's your turn to shine." Great lines. I loved the ending. Wonderful as always
kissing walls chapter 22 . 7/5/2009
the beginning part, "sunny side down" was really clever. i love the whole plant metaphor, because usually when plants are compared to a person's past, it's in a positive way, so this is pretty easy on the cliché-ridden eyes.

Yeah, too lazy to log in.


I love it. I'm still absolutely amazed at the way you're able to twist pennames into such amazing poetry with great imagery.

Keep up the amazing writing. :D
