It flows, it flows very easily in its reading.

"The thing I love most about rivers is you can't step in the same river twice, the water's always changing always flowing."

- Pochahontas, "Just Around The Riverbend"

Yes, it definitely as a flowly, progressive feeling to it. Life does seem to flow and to progress, however disjointed it may seem to some.

I didn't know a lot about you, and you don't talk about yourself much, but that's just the way we are. Our friendship is so beautiful and the magic it seems to generate in the both of us (on paper in the form of poems and songs, musically: you just inspire beauty and unity of sound, everything about you seems creative and wonderfully colourful. Rich, warm, vibrant colours... ) that I've never actually needed to know all about the ins and outs of being you. It's not that I didn't want to know, I just didn't need to know.

Definition of fraternisation, AAFC 1 Wing presentation, viewed at RAAF Townsville Base Briefing room:

"Public expression of a close or intimate relationship betweem members."

But we couldn't help it... its the stupid private jokes that make us laugh insanely (*weird grins*), incredulous glances when listening to lectures given by those in authority... there's a closeness about us that I can't explain, but still a space, a distance, that slowly becomes smaller.

Even if space is curved, I've found my reasoning, my explanation, my logic, my sanity in a crazy world in you.

I hope that's a piece of your childhood you always remember.

you gave me chills. not only because it's well-written and the situations you were in are things i can't imagine, but also because of your honesty and ability to see yourself as you are. (sidenote: i don't know you, just the way you wrote it was so straightforward that it sounded honest). this really shows the effects of your childhood as well. it's really powerful because at first the style sort of mutes the emotion and then the fact that the emotion is muted gives it more power. it's wonderful. dont change a thing.

That was sad. Are they divorced now?

gosh, very honest, true, painful.

i think that in the last paragraph, i can relate to many things you say and feel.

isn't it ironic how people say they're doing things for your sake, and they just hurt you in the long run? what can you possibly say to them?

it sounds like you still have a lot of anger left over, you might want to try writing on this again after you feel that you have resolved your feelings. a lot of the time writing can be theraputic in this process though, so it's good that you can do this to express yourself. kudos

btw, thanks for your review on "there was a time" i really appreciate getting reviews on my work, i think i've reached a grand total of 4... _

Great. I like it. Are you sure you are not me? It sounds like something I would say, like your other stuff, except that I haven't experienced all that. It's not that my parents hate eachother-it's that they hate me.
