    This poem is such an amazing piece! So compelling, I kept reading it over and over and every time I read it, I felt priviledged and inspired to more meanings. You write so well, such a unique individual style.It read so fluid, yet inconsistent all at the same time (Report) Reply

You write beautifully, with that sense of not one word being too much or out of place. The effect SEEMS effortless, like music well-played! (Report) Reply
