she tells me that they stole her words
marked them in
red and wrung them out dry
leaving her shockingly [bare]

so she took up her -sharpest- pen
and she c a r v e d out her words
[close to her heart they'll be safe]

Quite a tense piece, the layout shows a sense of urgency and it's structured to show perhaps personal thought

I really how you used so many different way to distinguish certain words and make them really pop.

wow, this sounds very emotional. I like how you wrote some of the words in a d i f f e r e n t way to give them more power.

I like how this brings images to my mind and how you have used different ways of writing to emphasize certain words. :+fav:

Ooh. I love the way you're playing with formatting here. Very effective...but almost too much so.

Take out all the formatting and look at the poem again. What do you think of the content without the dressing? While I think that it's still a brilliant poem, I think that you could have done a lot more with this concept.

Gracias, and I will definitely take a closer look at that. Thanks for the suggestion :)
