A Poem by Tenten


the lost piece is now a shadow
but I remember subtle movements
flowing to blunt truths
words rising with the aria
breathing a tale of timid voices,
the eyes I avoid are too kind
to speak
the lost piece fades with each blink
becoming only a desperately longed
longing desperately reminiscence

LOVE this!!!!!!!!! You truly did a wonderful job mourning your piece here. I HATE losing pieces... I do it often.. just as quickly as they create themselves in my head. You know what else I hate? Losing reviews. Did you ever do that? Gah I hate it.
THIS is a jewel if I ever saw one. What a lovely poem to rise from the ashes. Good luck on the re-creation!!
I'm faving this!!!!! (might save me a few hairs next time I lose something!!) Consider this piece a public service in that regard!! Love ya~~

Whoa someone has never actually followed my advice to the letter before. I think it sounds a lot better, though if you're going to say 'relished,' I don't think you should say 'desperately longed (for)' too.

I don't really like the last time (you could do better), but the rest of it has some really great metaphors.

Something I'd suggest is "the eyes that I avoid" instead of "avoided eyes" and "too kind" instead of "to kind" (doubtless a typo), as it flows a bit better in my opinion.

Thanks for writing.
