My crit for :iconthewrittenrevolution:: [link]

:iconcritique-it:

Questions:

I am looking for general impressions, mostly, but a few questions as well:

1) Is there any language that is too obscure to be easily understood? Any metaphors that seem cliche?
2) Does the ending feel like a resolution? Is the imagery understood? (I've had a difficult time finding the right wording for what I want to portray here, so I'm very insecure about that last section).
3) Is there any place where the flow felt "off"?

Thanks! :)

2-24-12: Edited once more. Removed some unnecessary details and articles and rearranged a couple sentences. Small edits, but I think they enhance the piece on the whole. :)

This made me rub my beard for a while— a positive sign.

I'm not on your level, so I won't attempt to critique it.

Oh. You are amazing. V broke my heart. It just collapsed into itself and sunk to the bottom of my stomach. This is gorgeous and I still cannot believe that you watch me! Fantastic work.

I haven't had much time for reading on dA lately, but I know damn well why I watched you. There's a rawness and potency in your work that's rare to find in poetry. And as you grow, you're refining it to a very sharp edged instrument. :D I can't believe YOU watch me! :heart:

This story is powerful and emotions, and I enjoy how you divided it into section. It makes it more obvious that you didn't linger on details that aren't important for the story itself and shows that you got straight to the point. A short story, but one that holds just as much power as an entire novel can.

The ending fits; I like how things seem to have come full-circle. Well done! :heart:
