Review of At arm's length

Rated: E | (4.5)
Chris,

Yes, it was too late in the round, but I love that you found something to inspire you and wrote it regardless.

I think that this shows the side of falling in love that can be scary, but it also shows that it is definitely worth the fall if you let it happen. Once you have it, you hold on to it and handle it with care. Sweet and thoughtful poem.

Write on,

Snow,

While this song is a popular parody choice, I know first-hand it is a tricky one to take on. You did a wonderful job here though! The hook is catchy, and it definitely feels like what many of us go through during certain times- no time for sleep; we have deadlines to meet!

Thank you for entering "Pen Me A Parody- Writing.Com Contest! and good luck.

Dave,

I adored Larry. It was lovely to see him remembered through this piece. I think that you had a good idea to use this because it covers both Writing.Com's Birthday and fits right in with this time of year.

May the goblins of gab ignite your conflagration
with a gallon of pyrotechnic inspiration.

Love that line!!

Whiskerface,

I love that this parody and song felt quite festive in celebrating Writing's Sweet 16. I think that this parody shows what many of us first felt when we plunged into the site for the first time, and how our nerves quickly turned into something else because of the welcoming members. Easy piece to relate to!

Robert,

This is great! It can be sung along to actual music and it fits right in. It's funny I could the background vocals "when I write" as I was reading/kinda singing (I'm just glad no one could hear me)!

I also love that this parody had a positive message: never give up. Sometimes, we need reminders*Smile*

Catdok,

I really thought it was interesting to use this title and create a poem out of pieces from the Bible. Though when I initially thought of "Fire and Flame" I did not have anything specific in mind, but this seemed that the title was created for the poem itself *Smile*


Good choice of rhyming pattern too. The rhymes were subtle and did not feel conflicting.

WakeUp&Live,

I think your approach in this is interesting. It can be taken as someone "sleeps through life" from time to time, or in the literal sense. Recently, I came across a reading that was addressing that some times we tend to only exist in life, but we don't truly live. I know that you state that this is about sleeping, but it made me think of that.

You painted such a vivid image of the ocean and the sky through your words. The colors come to life and I could see the sun's rays mirrored in the waves, sending off kaleidoscope colors in my head. Beautifully told journey that really hones in on feeling free and one with nature.

Elle,

I love the possibilities here. It can be about someone that you currently have a relationship with, or about a past love that once was your rock, and even about someone you never truly had but dreamed of having. You describe a wonderful confidante in this. Someone that you can depend on and someone who will protect and shelter you.

I love the setting you presented in the second stanza. Lovely imagery, yet simple moment captured.

Schnujo,


This makes me think about a relationship that is strictly dependent on one another- to the point where it becomes unhealthy. It can become an addiction in itself if you cannot separate who you are from who they are. There is certainly a difference between being united and not being able to make your own choices and function. I think that you chose some great examples as to what cannot exist without the other to prove this point true.

Schnujo,

I like the idea of this. Perhaps, it would be easier if there were some type of warning sign for us. Your poem shows that love can grab us when we least expect it and turn us upside down. We led a life before them and then once they've melted our heart, it is difficult to imagine life without them.

Knocking first is indeed the polite thing to do *Wink*

Maria,

I like that though this is simple, it still sends a meaningful message. You long for friends and company, but there is still a boundary that needs to be kept. Privacy should be respected, so knocking first shows respect*Smile*

I thought your ending lines tied this together quite nicely, and found this to be a pleasant and polite way to address this.

HuntersMoon,

This is a creative take on the prompt! I thought most people would think about someone else taken to soon. The personal journey of birth to death had not occurred to me, but it makes perfect sense.

I am impressed that you chose this specific format, as I personally find it a challenge to conquer.

time's hands onward sweep
Lovely way to say that time is passing!


I think you show how quickly time gets away from us, and how it is over in the blink of an eye.

Irregular Onion,

I love the dream that you presented within this poem. Though it does not really have anything to do with "Peter Pan" it still had a certain feel to it that reminded me of that story. I have always found that my dreams were way more creative than what is stored in my own head. I wish that were not the case*Laugh*

Good use of imagery throughout the poem that allowed me to be on the ship with you! I liked the hints of rhyme in your poem too.

Happy Writing.Com Anniversary, Lee! Hope you don't mind my comments.

*Thumbsup* I like the aspects of this poem. I think that you show the two sides, and possibly one cannot exist without the other.

There are things in this world that make us believe that there isn't any hope, but then you see someone truly caring for someone else, or the beauty that is all around us. When we see and experience these things it reminds us of how great some things are, and how wonderful the world can be.

I am glad you showed both sides of the coin in this poem!

Happy Writing.Com Anniversary, Lee! Hope you don't mind my comments.

*Thumbsup* Sometimes moments strike and the inspirations flow. I like that this showed the build up of a serious emotion, the release of it, and that something built on anger turned into a carefree thing such as laughter.

I think that this indeed shows a transition, so title suits it quite nicely. You used hints of alliteration which add a lovely element when read.

Very enjoyable!

Lisa,

Your poem shows someone who is uncertain about the true treasures and gems in life. They believe it is the material things matter the most, but you show them what things truly matter. Finding love and nurturing one another is what should matter. Those are the things that will bring true happiness. I like that you use the idea of "carrying someone home" to bring them back to reality. In the end, love is what prevails, all other things fade away.

Mari,

This poem feels like a romantic serenade. I really like your use of "soft and still." It really makes this piece feel like a serene place, and love can make you feel just like that. If you have a love like that, it can make you feel at peace and complete.

You show unity between two people in this, and the butterflies and dreamy state that love brings. Beautifully done.

Good Day! This review comes to you on behalf of "WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group and the "SuperPower May Review Raid . Hope my comments are welcomed.

Hi Regina!

I think that your words intertwine imagery and a fantasy-like setting in this. It's between a fairytale and fable. I like the idea that this is encouraging these "secret" things to be who they are and that they shouldn't hide. Your ending line tied this piece nicely together.

One quick thing:
Come now darling and you shall see
A beautiful fairy waiting for the.
He tells tales of joy
And tales of pain.

*QuestionG* What is the fairy waiting for?

Echo,

I thought that this was an interesting short scene. I like that the little girl was as passionate and curious as she was. I felt that she truly meant that seeing the moon was worth her life.

I questioned what caused the world to become this way? What caused the air to become full of chemicals? I think that you could definitely expand on this idea too. It'd be interesting to see what was the cause of this, and how they survived it all.

One quick thing:
Everything was scary and it was getting heard to breathe.
getting harder to breathe.

LostGhost,

I ran across this prompt a few weeks back and it intrigued me, so I was definitely curious to see what someone else would come up with. I like the idea that the time and experiences missed are buried within the graveyard of clocks!

Your use of imagery and metaphor show us a dark side. I really liked that you gave time personal traits. Thinking of moments laying awake and wondering why they were missed is a very nice touch!

Just Jamie,

Happy Writing.Com Anniversary! Hope you don't mind my comments.

*Thumbsup* It's often difficult to let go of someone who is clearly not good for us. I think we become invested at a certain point and don't want to give up or fail. It takes some time for us to realize it's not always in our best interest to not move on. I am glad that you finally closed the bridge to someone that is not deserving of all that you have to offer.

Vanillafire,

Happy Writing.Com Anniversary! Hope you don't mind my comments.

*Thumbsup* Young love! I remember feeling like this. Your poem brings back the memories of butterflies and first of firsts.

I think that you did a lovely job in writing this when you were younger. You added hints of imagery which add an element to the poem. I think you show how love connects two people and how they become a unit. Unlike me at young age, you had a reality that this "may not last forever but you will always remember." I was much more dramatic, lol! I thought there would be no chance that "love" would end. It was a hard, but valuable lesson to learn.

Happy Writing.Com Anniversary! Hope you don't mind my comments.

This reminds me of the loss of my own mother. I feel like you must have jumped inside my head to write this. I also was not ready, though I am not sure anyone can ever truly be ready. I did not want to accept this unwelcome visitor, but he certainly stayed around until I acknowledge him. Once I did, it was less than 12 hours that he took her.

This hit my heart.

*Thumbsup* Inspiring piece! Dreaming in words without color and images allows you to add elements into your stories and pieces creatively. I envy that you can remember your dreams, as I only remember them once in awhile. When I can remember them, they are far more imaginative than my mind could ever make up, so I truly wish that would become more available to me*Smile*

I think that you capture why you write and what inspires you to write in this.
