2005-07-12 [kate katastrophe]: Your poems are beautiful...
2005-08-22 [twinrova]: ohh i love these.........
2005-09-01 [Hermelin]: Wow, neat. I like "growing Lunacy" especially much :)
2005-09-02 [Linderel]: Say, should I add all the rest of the poems that have been featured on the Main Street? Currently, the total amount is nine, but only four of them are on this page.
2005-09-02 [Hermelin]: If they are as good as theese, you should... :)
2005-10-09 [Aikon I]: wow... i really like Sky Chaser
2006-04-24 [Aikon I]: yay
2006-04-24 [Linderel]: Yay?
2006-09-27 [Aikon I]: i am about to say YAY again
2006-09-27 [Linderel]: For what reason? :P
2006-09-27 [Aikon I]: for it to be active again
2006-09-27 [Linderel]: Mmkay. :P
2006-09-27 [Aikon I]: *hugs*
2006-10-06 [Aikon I]: YAY!!!!!!!!!
2006-10-31 [Aikon I]: YAY!!!!!!
2006-10-31 [Linderel]: Nothing new, Aik, I just added keywords. ;)
2006-10-31 [Aikon I]: i knew that... >_> <_< >_>
2006-10-31 [Linderel]: xD
2006-11-20 [Aikon I]: small yay
2006-11-20 [Aikon I]: YAY.... lots of LLLLLLL's
2006-11-20 [Aikon I]: correction... a few LLL"s... and some other letters
2006-11-20 [xerya]: Even normally I am not a man of many words, but these just leave me speechless. All I can say is beautiful, just.. beautiful.
2006-11-20 [Linderel]: Thank you. :)
2007-01-17 [Aikon I]: YAY for every thing you changed.... i'm sorry for my absence... did you miss me? ^_^
2007-01-17 [Linderel]: Yeah, I missed my 'yay's. :D
2007-01-17 [Aikon I]: when i get my DSL back i'll cover you in YAY's
2007-01-17 [Linderel]: ^_____^
2007-01-17 [Aikon I]: are you happy?
2007-01-17 [Linderel]: Hehe, yah.
2007-01-17 [Aikon I]: you sure you're the same Lami?
2007-01-17 [Linderel]: I haven't been eaten and replaced with a clone, if that's what you mean... xD I'm just somehow generally more cheery nowadays.
2007-01-17 [Aikon I]: i was more thinking about an android
2007-01-17 [Linderel]: Nope, not an android either... I think.
2007-01-19 [Aikon I]: this is when i start to think "should i hide in sheer terror or smile and wave?"
2007-01-19 [Linderel]: Just smile and wave, Aik, always smile and wave... If you escape, the android might be tempted to become hostile.
2007-01-20 [Aikon I]: *smiles and waves*
2007-01-20 [Linderel]: ^___^
2007-01-20 [Aikon I]: *inches backwards*
2007-01-20 [Linderel]: *giggle*
2007-01-20 [Aikon I]: *freezes* i'm scared now
2007-01-20 [Aikon I]: YAY
2007-01-20 [Aikon I]: idem
2007-01-20 [Linderel]: It's up to you whether to feel honoured or not - you inspired me just now. :P
2007-01-20 [Aikon I]: how?
2007-01-20 [Linderel]: By your comment that you're scared now. xD
2007-01-20 [Aikon I]: oh ow
2007-01-20 [Linderel]: Hmm. Was that a positive or negative reaction? I can't tell.
2007-01-20 [Aikon I]: a scared one.... what else?
2007-01-20 [Linderel]: Bah.
2007-01-20 [Aikon I]: sorry
2007-01-29 [Aikon I]: YAY!
2007-04-03 [Aikon I]: why hide from the moon?
2007-04-03 [Linderel]: Ask my muse, she's the one with secrets and a very, very disturbed head.
2007-04-06 [Aikon I]: where can i find your muse?
2007-04-06 [Linderel]: She lives in my head, and so far, I haven't yet witnessed her communicating with anyone else except me.
2007-07-26 [Aikon I]: kan ik nu misschien met haar praten?
2007-07-26 [Linderel]: Don't talk in Dutch to me, I'm not so far yet. :P
2007-08-02 [Aikon I]: it was worth the shot
2007-10-01 [Linderel]: I think I actually understand that now. Something like "Could I perhaps speak with her now?"
...the answer to which is still no. :P
2007-10-01 [Aikon I]: meanie :(
2007-12-20 [Easterling]: This is beautiful. I love the way you write. In the beginning I tried to remember my favourites so I could tell you which they were, but they turned out to be too many...
2007-12-20 [Linderel]: Aww, thank you. :)
2007-12-22 [Leaf_DaiLyn]: ah! A kindred spirit! What a breath of fresh air! You must be my friend, okay? Your style reminds me so much of... well, me ^v^ Except obviously, you have your own stories to tell, and your own personal experiences that come out. But your style reminds me very much of mine. It takes guts to put ones' personal poetry on here, for many reasons: one, to be that "exposed" (having your insides examined closely by complete strangers), and also, I always feared putting my poetry out there because of sneak-thiefs..
It's clear that someone you loved betrayed you, that the wind talks to you like an old friend, the moon sings to some part of your soul that you can't quite reach without it gazing over you, you see things deeply and are aware of many things that lots of us tend to forget about in our daily busy lives (as a mother of four under age of 7, this can be quite distracting at times). If you are anything like me, more often than not, when you start to write you never really stop to think about what you're writing till the whole thing is done. It just... flows out of you without needing to dither about which words to use or why. Then when you read it through for the first time, you wonder "Huh, did that just come out of me? Interesting.." (I'm guesing that's why you say you have a muse- cos the words just seem to come from somewhere else with little-to-no effort on your part, though I'm sure you usually completely agree with them ^v^) *lol* Now, if you were to tell me that at some point that lasted as long as years in your life- that you would wish a certain wish on the moon about finding your true love... on EVERY moon. Or that you used to dance around in pigtails and blow the dandelion seeds afar while making wishes.. then I would be scared. Cos I imagine I would be looking into a mirror when I looked at you. *Grins* It's beautiful poetry, and it makes me feel alive to read it. It's actually quite addictive- when I finish one I just have to keep reading through the next and the next and the next. Like I said before- it was a breath of fresh air, and I am grateful to you for sharing it with me. *definately in the mood to go back to writing my novel now* Here is a token of my gratitude *Hands you the highly coveted honeysuckle vine wreath award*
2007-12-22 [Linderel]: Whoa, long comment :D
Thank you so much for the feedback! It's always a delight to have my scribblings liked, and even more so to receive such lovely comments.
Yeah, some of that sounds familiar indeed. Many of my poems are about things and people I will never personally experience or meet, but just as many definitely stem from my own feelings. And yes, more often than not, the lines just flow without me having to think about it much.
I was a fairly quiet child, but dancing around and blowing dandelion seeds while making wishes sounds like something I would do now that I've truly begun to find myself. :)
2008-01-02 [Chetleon]: I think "Illusion of belonging" is the best one, besides, "Song Bird" which is short and to the point.
2008-01-02 [Linderel]: Thanks. I do agree that 'Illusion of belonging' is one of my best poems, although not the best.
2008-08-04 [Chetleon]: I like "Ruska" and "Home", they are both powerful, and emotional.
2009-01-20 [Chimes]: I love the most recent one, Lin. It's pretty.
2009-01-21 [Linderel]: Thanks. :3
2009-01-21 [Chimes]: You're welcome. ^^
2009-01-26 [Linderel]: *is punny*
2009-01-26 [Chimes]: I like it. :D
(Sorry it took me so long... I was doing my illustraation thinger.)
2009-01-26 [Linderel]: S'alright. ^_^ Glad you do. :3
2009-01-27 [Chimes]: It's very interesting. :) I've been trying to analyse it XD
2009-01-27 [Linderel]: Haha, really now? xD Have anything yet?
2009-01-27 [Chimes]: Nope XD Too tired... I'll try tomorrow. XD
2009-01-29 [Linderel]: If you do get something out of it, I'd be interested in posting it on my writings LJ along with the poem. :P
2009-01-29 [Chimes]: Can I have the link to your LJ? :) *will look into it in detail at some point* ^^
2009-01-29 [Chimes]: *reads lots* :D
2009-01-29 [Chimes]: You also just reminded me to update the blog on my website. :]
2009-01-29 [Linderel]: Hehe. :3
The only things posted there that aren't somewhere on Elftown are the fanfics. xD
2009-01-29 [Chimes]: Well.. I will read stuffs anyway, because I can. :P
Not that many people read my blog... I know someone who does when I mention it, otherwise... it's rare that someone does. XD *is so lame*
2009-01-29 [Linderel]: I'll have to add it to my bookmarks. :o
2009-01-29 [Linderel]: Yar, was there and added it already. :P
I'm going to add the newest poem in my diary to LJ as an example of how an empty piece is never good... but I'm not sure if I should put it here. <_<
2009-01-29 [Chimes]: Well... you could make separate wiki for things like that?
2009-01-29 [Linderel]: Nah. Not worth the trouble. :P
2009-01-29 [Chimes]: Fair enough. XD
2009-01-31 [Chetleon]: Ewww, "Sangria Bird Sings" is very interesting.
2009-01-31 [Linderel]: What was your definition of 'ewww' again, Ethan? (And interesting how?)
2009-02-03 [Chetleon]: Oh, sorry. "Ewww" is the sound I make when I like something. And I like it because it dwells on sadness, and then revenge.
2009-04-08 [Linderel]: Currently faffing an archive wiki. Do not be alarmed.
2009-04-24 [Triola]: Waaaaah, so sad ;_; *clings to all fairy tales*
2009-04-24 [Linderel]: Yeah, I'm not quite sure that was my intention. <_< But we know Tristan, she's a morbid little bitch.
2009-04-24 [Chimes]: Tristan?
2009-04-24 [Linderel]: My muse.
2009-04-24 [Chimes]: Ooooh. :)
2009-04-25 [sequeena_rae]: Aww Lami <3
2009-04-25 [Linderel]: Le Squee likes a piece? :3
2009-09-21 [Triola]: Oooh, I like that last one! Especially this part:
"of a world where:
belly dancers are not two-dollar whores"
... made me shiver :3
2009-09-21 [Linderel]: <3
2011-02-28 [Nioniel]: *watches* :)
2011-02-28 [Linderel]: :)
2011-04-28 [Akayume]: I hope you know this makes me self-conscious about my poetry. :P
2011-04-29 [Linderel]: Eh? Whyzzat?
2011-04-29 [Akayume]: Because iz goot. :P That's whai.
2011-04-29 [Linderel]: That's a really backhanded way of praising, you know. It's like you're trying to make me feel guilty about displaying my poetry. I get where you come from, I do - but that's still not the way to go. :P I'm feeling defensive now.
2011-04-29 [Akayume]: I was joking, I hope you know. (;
2011-04-29 [Akayume]: When I revert to horrible English, it usually means that.
2011-04-29 [Linderel]: And I was really irritable xP Yay for successful communication! (Also, your initial comment wasn't in horrible English :P)
2011-04-29 [Akayume]: Weeeeeell... Later I did. :P I apologize.
2011-05-23 [Akayume]: I love the new poem. <3
2011-05-23 [Linderel]: Which one of them? :P
2011-05-23 [Akayume]: The one at the bottom? :O Titled J.
2011-05-23 [Linderel]: :)
2011-05-23 [Linderel]: (I wrote two yesterday, so was just checking. ;3)
2011-05-24 [Akayume]: I understand. Sowwy I was unclear. DX
But I love... The rhythm. And the ending. (:
2011-05-30 [Akayume]: Bots! :P
2011-05-30 [Linderel]: Wow. My first bot. I'm not sure whether I should keep it or nuke it.
2011-05-30 [Triola]: Keep it :D
2011-05-30 [Akayume]: It'll create fond memories.
2011-06-04 [Akayume]: X3
2011-06-05 [Linderel]: Grr. Bots nuked.
2011-06-05 [Nioniel]: "J" is absolutely beautiful. You're magical with words. :)
2011-06-05 [Linderel]: Thanks. :)
2011-07-03 [Nioniel]: :)
