Just In
for Shattered Reflections

Wow. This was very well done. The imagery was a little overdone, but it is still very elegant. It is so well done in the fact that you are reffering to many different issues at once, not only focussing on one paticular idea. People can apply so many things to this piece, so many things in their own lives.

Your contrasts are absolutely lovely. You talk about the icy shards in one verse, if I may call it that, and in the next, you talk about the burning of the splintered reflection. Well done.

Overall, a nice piece. Keep writing.

You should understand that there are so many people who have only seen you by your reflection in that mirror. You aren't the only one who can visualize yourself as perfect, beleive me on that one. I know because I have never seen you, but only read your poetry. By reading such beutiful works of literature, I know that you as well are beutiful. That is just who you are. That mirror is what lets you see your true self, you should never break it.

Wow this poem is powerful. I love how the mirror is first calm, safe and loving and then turns elemental (with the ice and the fire). The searching and the yearning, the clinging it's all there! I don't know if you meant it this way but I interpret the ending like this; you see yourself as you for the first time and the mirror is broken because it can't really show you how you are, you become yourself again and you don't care about what the mirror tells you anymore...I may be way off..but it makes sense in my head. Thanks for reviewing!

Whoa...now THAT is a powerful poem. I like it. I have nothing to say about it except that. I am not well at writing reviews, and so, that it all I have to say. It is powerful, and I could tell that a lot of effort was put inot this poem.

Keep up the work!

I absolutly love this..

p.s. thanx for the review...don't worry the poem was not about death it was about a boy I consider an angel..i'm praying that he sees that i'm in love with him and that i'm "Just around the bend"

so beautiful... what i see it as is people see you as perfect untill you shatter their preconceptions... (maybe not perfect but my minds numb and i can't think of anything else...

This is a powerful and very enjoyeable piece. I think anyone who has been severly depressed can probably relate to this in one way or other.It says a lot in an abstract fashion. I love the last few lines, the contradiction from the logic of the rest of the poem is wonderful.Well done!

woah... you have a LOT of fans... anywho. First of all, thank you thank you THANK YOU (!) for the reviews! *ahem* anyway...

This was simply lovely. Well, not really simple. But lovely all the same. The way you refer to your reflection as 'it' throughout the *fantasy* part of the poem emphasizes how much of a lie everything is.

And the ending. It made me stop and re-read at least three times over. A beautiful way to end this, it makes the poem complete. (this may be WAY out in left field but...) I think that it gives a message that being broken transcends all lies... if that made any sense (?). And the way you separated the lines made it all the more powerful.

I understand now why you have so many readers and reviewers, this is amazingly done. Prefect.

Tag! You reviewed me so now I'm reviewing you =D

I like you're writing, especially this one. Sorta reminds me of that Evanescence song "breathe no more"...I dont know if you'd take that as a good thing though but I like the song so...yeah.

I interpreted this as you were just finding your true self or discovering new parts of you emotionally. But that's just the way I see it.
