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.
