    I don't really know what to say. I'm utterly impressed with your writing! I'm seriously hooked on this story, I really hope you'll continue with it someday!

    P. S. Loved the Hufflepuff reference ��

    Damn! This was good!

    Have you ever wondered what it's all about? Life, in all it's extremities, can feel like an endless tunnel with no chance of renewal or enlightenment, which only further inspires the question: what's it...

    I couldn't agree more!! And thank you so much for your lovely comments, it means so much to me as a writer to have had a positive impact :)

    I cringe mostly because I wrote this I think at least 2 years ago, and of course my style has changed since then, and I always hate re-reading old work- since seeing your first comment I've tried to go over it for the first time since publishing it on here, but I couldn't make it all the way through! I must admit I think this flows a lot better than some of my more recent stuff, but it'll still take me some time to go through it properly. That being said, encouragement from an unbiased person has given me a boost, so again, thank you!

    Quite honestly, you have more than enough ability! You're gifted with words and making emotion come alive through language, and I think you shouldn't doubt yourself so much! If I can repay your encouragement, it would be to reassure you that although we have different styles and mediums sometimes, you have miles of potential and skill! :)

    You are beyond welcome!

    And thank you for your kind words! I really do need to stop doubting my writing.
    All I want is for people to feel when reading my poetry, and I believe I achieve that, may be different to each reader!

    It's easier said than done to stop doubting I know, but baby steps and it makes for some peace of mind at least! :D

    You have most definitely achieved that! I think that's the ultimate goal of every writer and so you've certainly done well :)

    Deep; raw and beautifully described! I really felt sadness start to wash over me.
    I believe any writing that brings emotions to the surface is the best kind of writings!

    The road to hell is paved with good intentions.... Some random late night musings from when I couldn't sleep ^.^ I might develop it into a full story, if I can figure out the finer details...

    Although it's a shame it was negative, I'm glad it could connect with you like that!
    To be able to have this effect is exactly what any writer aims to achieve; thank you so much for this feedback, it means so much to me! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

    Is a hand around my neck

    *Possible trigger warning* This is written from the perspective of a woman in a story long since abandoned, but my attachment to it still lingers. Her country was ravaged by war and her husband soon became...

    Thank you! I struggle sometimes to find the right words or rhythm, but if I can convey the emotion behind it all then it's worth it.
    I completely agree. It's the best form of expression.
    That is very kind of you, thank you so much!! :) I will if you do!
