    dotsSickness in the Raftersdots

    People murmer and whisper
    Spreading their thoughts
    She's doomed you know
    Won't live past twenty
    So she writes all over her arms
    Piercings cover her body
    Pulls out her hairs one bye one
    Won't live past twenty

    People all die eventually
    But they try to make bodies last
    But you never know
    They might not live past 10

      Please accept my apologies for my misinterpretation of this piece. When I read it, I dont see that she is ill or diseased... I imagine a girl who is not afraid of life, one who takes risks and does whatever she wants, whenever she wants too. And, its the cowardly people around her who say she wont live past 20, because they cant believe how unafraid of death she is... thats how I understood it, but I realise now that this was not your intention. I still think this is a great piece, but I think if you are tackling the idea of a girl who is terminally ill, it could do with a bit more detail, a bit more depth - just to even touch on the seriousness of the subject... just my opinion.

      I love that. It's different (in a good way). My favorite part is:

    "So she writes all over her arms
    Piercings cover her body
    Pulls out her hairs one bye one
    Won't live past twenty"

    The title is awesome too. That's what made me want to read it. It sounded like it would be creative, and it is. Very nicely done

      I enjoyed this, and can also relate completely! I kinda connected this piece with my poem "That Girl" - its as though we are writing about the same little minx! Check it out if you get chance - this was a great read.

      I liked it and it felt kinda original to me. Yeah, I agree that it was a little closed, but otherwise it was really awesome. I'm adding it to my favorite's list because I can relate to it A LOT!
