       my own demons. its sketchy and I'm not sure it's any good so let me know

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.

    dotscomplicated to the coredots

    She wasn't just

    someones sisters

    or girlfriend.

    daughter or


    she tried to be a

    beloved perfect


    tried to be the

    visage model

    wrapped in designer


    "Im dying." she said,

    "since my first word.

    her shaking hand put earth quakes

    in me resembling tribal dances and

    forms of prayer.

    "I'll tell you all my lies"

    like closets and locked doors.

    show you skelotons that were

    meant to crumble to dust".

    spilling her life like

    buckets of water

    it was almost as though

    she were folding herslf

    into an envolope to send

    away, spellchecked and


    her lies were my lies,

    but she told them to herself

    as though said out loud

    they would be truth.

    she never changed.

    only her cloths and hair

    ever morphed to

    imatate what she really wanted to be.

    the lie was concrete!

    her lies were my lies.

    she was me

    the person with shatterd

    eyes before you.

      Alrighty, as you know (per your description), this is a little sketchy. It really has potential though. For starters, it could be cleaned up a bit in regards to spelling and/or punctuation. Example:

    "someones sisters" should read "someone's sister"


    "skelotons" to "skeletons"

    Again, those are not too important, nor do they retract from the message or story that is being portrayed.

    "spilling her life like
    buckets of water
    it was almost as though
    she were folding herslf
    into an envolope to send
    away, spellchecked and

    * I liked this part of the poem, although I liked it as two awkward pieces that are connected to the same puzzle. They don't seem to mess well together, but sound beautiful apart. I you want to keep them together maybe there is an added transition or rearrangement of words that may help out. Minor suggestive example:

    "A countless number of tears have been shed, spilling her life like buckets of water. She constantly questions the validity of her life, as though she was folding herself into an envelope to send away, spellchecked and punctuated."

    All in all, this piece was good, but it could be great. Keeping it the way it is will not harm its value either. Hope this helped, if not you can tell me to shove it and I won’t mind :)

    * Note - I know when someone tells me how this or that doesn't fit right in my poems, I take it as they didn't get my meaning and I shouldn't change anything. These are just third party observations and not slanders to your writing.

    Take care.
