All I would like is a real title instead of "random snippet" but this is really cool. Normally I'm not hot on rhymes, but this one adds to the shivers that I get at the end :) readaholic replied...

You managed to make me walk away from this hodgepodge of words convinced there was some occult meaning I couldn't see.....How on earth did you do that? *Shakes head in confusion.* Wha...? umm..... hmmm...... *looks at poem and reads again........* Alright! Five stars! Could you check out some of my work? IceFox416 replied... Dec. 12, 2011 at 7:34 pm : Thanks! I know, I wish I could figure out the meaning too. It's like I wasn't really me exactly when I wrote this. And if I could figure out what it's about, then I could write a 2nd stanza, lol. :) I've read "The Swimmer" (really good, by the way) and I'll read more when I have the time. You are great at writing! Report abuse AnimaCordis said... Nov. 27, 2011 at 5:33 am: Amazing language, the fraze 'a death cry of a swan' is really something!
