And she said “Wow, you just happened to catch me here. This is a freaking GREAT poem, and you nailed the ending, girl. My only suggestion is to go back and look at the words you leave on the end of your lines…. plenty of great line breaks have gone missing here. For instance, on Line 7, ending on “precipice” is much stronger than ending on “of”‘
I’ve always wanted to meet her (she’s the author the books “Crank” and “Burned” and many many other amazing books….so very famous) but the timing has never worked out. I asked her to be my friend on facebook as she doesn’t really have a fan page, and she accepted. I tagged her in my poem saying that I really appreciated that she had commented in the past on another work, and she commented on this one saying that.
I want to run around in circles screaming. This really means a lot to me.
