  1. a description of self

    Right forum, and we'll done. Welcome back.
  2. Crazy ?

    This type of crazy belongs here at the Pen!
  3. The Songstress

    Good use of line breaks to imply punctuation. Nicely crafted free-form
  4. Thulians

    I do like the variety and complexity of your world-building. It's nice to see the rules of logic applied to a fantasy universe. That concept is the core of my FARS system.
  5. First Lines (V. 2.0)

    When the madness overcame you, we all danced in a giddy joy, No more peeping out the veiled view, slowly separating alloy; We boldly taking turns at staring you down, splinters in silvered panes of glass. You fought for the surface - struggled not to drown, we won when combining en masse. Each jagged sliver life now, your sanity we overthrew, Personality? And how! When the madness overcame you. First line - In odd we place our trust
  6. A special delivery...

    I'm pleased you shared.
  7. A whiney poem dedicated to my cough

    Peredhil falls about laughing. I like it.
  8. Immanence

    smiles happily and murmurs, "I've missed this..."
  9. A figurative love

    It is a bit like a Nordic chant, but you lost the 3/4/3/4 syllable count a few times. "She stares, whimpers" is a correct four count, but something about the plural leaves the tongue in the wrong mouth placement to feel comfortable. I'm not certain of a fix, perhaps changing out the "she" to allow a singular active phrase. [x] stare, whimper. Hmmm, Maybe it's the soft syllables of whimper after the hard stare. *Polite Hugs* Good to see you
  10. Perfume

    I simply love your twisty writing. You write well, and keep me guessing.
  11. Where did you all go?

    I was gearing up and being active when unemployed. I'm sorry I've become effectively absent now that I have a job - IT customer support, which I love. Computers are evil, and I get paid to make people's days go better. Marriage with Mynx is a daily feast of joy, to which I devote much attention. She is willing for me to be online more, but hey, dating won her heart, so why stop just because we married?
  12. the forgotten

    Epic imagery. Reminds me a bit of Roger Zelazny in a way. The near total lack of punctuation is deliberate, yes? I take it to indicate the constant stream of thoughts of a brain too awake in a body too tired to sleep.
  13. Grown up talk

    *hug cuddle acceptance*

    Thank you! *Polite hugs* Happy happy to you all. I enter the New Year with a new job! I'm looking forward to my first paycheck with anticipations - I'll get to buy shinies for my Beloved Mynx!
  15. Loose

    The first two lines resonate. After that, it's just good poetry. Sorry, I thought much more sentence than I typed!
