i just wanted to let you know that i've nominated you for a SKoW award-and it has gone through. congratulations on the nomination, and i will be voting for this poem. your style is raw and beautiful, and i really appreciated all the references to neon and lights and the darkness. it's something i've become obsessed with over the years-like, the images, and to see them in your work was wonderful.
i will send you a PM with a line-by-line break down of your work within the next few weeks. unfortunately, school is holding me by the ears, and i can't spare the time i know it will take for me to sit down and read it how it deserves.

Beautiful. Just freakin beautiful.

I love this. Really, really love it. It hits all my word-obsessions (stardust, electricity, insomnia, Icarus complexes, stutter-stammer-stumble) and it's beautifully written. I love the parentheses in particular and the ending is spot-on.

I just can't express just how completely, mind-blowingly perfect this piece is.
I feel truly and deeply honored that I have the opportunity to read your work.

Ah, poetry. It's hard to really say something concretely constructive to your work, because honestly speaking I don't know the technicalities for writing poetry, but I think [from my limited knowledge] this is an amazing poem.
Keep it up.
- chocolate and bananas.

This poem is so chilling and gripping that I had to reread it to get a grip on how slippery and smooth the words fit toghether. The way you seperated the paragraphs and played with words "Be(lie)ving" "(In)(toxic)ation" "(Con)science gave your poem this spark that sets it apart.
Fluid. Your a poet. A damn good one. So good that this isn't just poetry it's art. Something so good that you taste it and see it and feel it and wish that you were there flowing through the tidal wave of perfect words.

Love the sad celestial imagery you wrote so well here. :)
"where dreams are made of black holes and chaos, not stardust" - so far from trivial it's brilliant. :)
"icarus-complexes" - i always love conotations in things, especially well crafted imagery. I admire your talent. :)

I could feel the narrator's obsession intensify with each word. The '(in)(toxic)ation' bit had me. If this poem says anything, it's that you're sheer genius with wordplay. The Icarus-complex is now my new favorite phrase/word. Thanks for posting this.
