Thank you! I'm happy to hear your enjoyed it!
I do feel as if the last stanza is slightly weak, but I can't seem to pinpoint its vulnerability...something just seems brittle. If you have any thoughts on the issue, I would greatly appreciate the advice from your talented mind, but if not I still enjoy your words immensely.
Thank you for the lovely comment.
you always have such lovely things to say. Alas, I suppose it only fits in some instances. I'm too shy to openly love like she does. I'm more of a reclusive contemplator. But my sister is such an accepting and warm person, she inspires me to try to be brave...as lame as that sounds. haha
I love reading your thoughts; it always makes me smile.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity
You are so thoughtful, and in this case you shouldn't be. There is no possible way I would have even been remotely offended! It's flattering to be compared to such a nice description, whether it is fitting or not. I appreciate it even more that you let me read such thoughts regarding the piece, etc..
I have trouble imagining how others get offended, after all it is just an assumption: It is either true or not; there is no offense in guessing. I think people you have previously encountered on similar issues have been misguided and/or overly sensitive, which in itself is sad, but by no means your fault. If anything, the bigger shame is that they misunderstood your genuine intentions...
I'm extremely happy to hear that from you, Dazzy. I missed you
It's also been quite awhile since I've seen your charismatic avatar, ha. It's so nostalgic!
I'm quite pleasantly embarrassed, as well as ecstatic to receive such feedback.
As always, it is such a pleasure to read your thoughts.
Well now I'm doing the same thing, so no worries. Although, it's my turn to apologize now. I was going to reply sooner, but then some shit happened. It takes me awhile to recharge--a lot longer than I originally thought--and I, too, didn't want to reply to you with meager appreciations.
It's hard to admit, but I could be better. But right now distraction tactics have officially made me giddy, so I'm super. haha. Oh yes: Homecoming... No I didn't go. It's hard for me to even imagine myself at a school dance, in a dress of all things, awkwardly penguin-swaying with some guy I hardly know. No thank you.... although my super shyness has me creeping on a guy right now. Only the second one in my whole high school career....and because I never want to be caught staring I don't even know what his face looks like--except his eyes-- but I have had the time to memorize his shoulders ... creepy but that's how it goes.
I just finished my first trimester, so I'm glad. I am so overloaded with core classes... I was trying to graduate this year but my mother and school advisor collaborated against me, basically saying I was incapable of that kind of responsibility--but they put it something like 'it'll be too much stress for you.' grrr.... so senior year here I come!
I've started 'working' at a martial arts gym. Nothing hard: just teaching the kiddies. I say 'working' because I won't get paid until a couple months. I don't exactly mind, because I am pretty close with the owners, but it is pretty exhausting. Especially because they really need the help and so my routine is school, work, and sleep. Forget about homework or studying... but my natural ability in school seems to have pulled me through with B's this trimester. Barely. I'm kind of silently crying for my GPA haha.
What about you? Don't worry about a long comment, I want to know!
