I like the way this poem questions our very existence because it shows that we don't truly have a reason to love but we keep doing it anyway without stopping. I also like the darkness of this piece because it holds true to life and is a question we ask ourselves every day.

Yes. If you love someone and they don't love you back, they break your heart every day.

A choice. Left or right or even something else if take the meaning as a metaphor. What to choose, what to choose...?
| Everdite chapter 10 . 10/24/2012
Yes, advice I should most likely take but never do. Good way though.
| Everdite chapter 9 . 10/24/2012
Yes, this is true. I remember many times where someone or even me has offered help but never what they truly need, maybe not enough or even unwillingly.
| Everdite chapter 8 . 10/24/2012
Ha! Yes, I do it too.
| Everdite chapter 7 . 10/24/2012
I should probably have asked that on quite a few occasions. To many people have let me down but then I do too...

Many, this week to be exact.
Ah, now warp that into a story and it could have quite a bit a humor.
| Everdite chapter 5 . 10/24/2012
Ah, now this is true. I've had many of these, friendships that seem like they'll forever yet as time moves forward they become lost.

It is true that for a beggar girl who had no money to be then handed a five dollar bill would be a miracle.
Thank you! Now I have an idea for a story.

To throw away the pain in the fire. It is truly human nature to avoid pain and negative emotions and by throwing them to the flames it is just another example.
| Everdite chapter 1 . 10/24/2012
Yes, that is the question. Why is it that we exist if we're only going to tear ourselves apart with war.

I like the meaning in this. I think it's something everyone can relate to - we all want to know we have friends (or at least A friend) who will be there through anything.
This is one of those cases though where I think the writing itself is watered down with unneccesaries - all those little words (taking up syllables) that don't add any depth of meaning to the piece.

I like the tone of this. It's faintly melancholic, but mostly simply resigned, and I think it fits perfectly with the situation it presents. I also like that it's highly relatable. Everyone *does* get those days, and that makes its meaning stick.

Aww - I like the emotion you get across in this. Very sad, but well-portrayed. I also like your last line in particular "lost in folds of time" - it almost makes friendship seem like this physical, prized token that, if not looked after, can get tangled up in an old shirt or tucked under a curtain and never found again. Anyway, it's a neat phrase.
