hey, gurlie! just wanted to say that this poem rocks my socks off! hooah!

if you want me to be a critic, then i think the first paragraph is a bit short for the poem and that you should add a couple verses but otherwise, its totally awesome, dude!

This is really well done. The only things I'd change are the fourth line of the second stanza- I'd leave out the "that" to give it better rhythm- and the kind of awkward line "for of his hands they lack". Maybe I'd change it to "his little hands they lack" or something like that. All in all, very nicely done. Good rhythym overall, great imagery. You are a very accomplished poet.

it's absolutely mind blowing. beyond anything anyone with a GPA could imagine. i can completely understand every feeling from every detail in the lil boy's room. no one person could ever write something so beautiful and touching. amazing.

I thought this poem improved as I read on. As soon as you start describing the boy's old room, the poems goes up a level; from good to excellent. My favorite of yours so far.

Wow. I love the feel of this poem. It's so sad, so full of emotion. You are good at this!

PS About your review- Nowhere is Lynchburg (Phil Vasar grew up here, it's in American Child). Loki's a Norse god, but yeah, as in the god. I tried to make "Between" ryme, but it sounded to forced, like all my rhyming poems, so I used free verse.

Your rhymes, however, do not sound forced, and I love the power of this poem.

Keep it up!

This is sad but almost very symbolic with the teddy bear. Very good job. Nice protrayal and good job!

Thanks for your review..yay someone else is actually critical in their reviews. I like this last stanza as it sums up the rest of the poem well -'All memories collecting dust' very good. Hoever, not must use of punctuation..don't know it that was intentional but some of them run on & don't make much sense. Also some of the rhyming is predictable.
