The last line ofthis poem made it for me :) It just explained it so eloquently! She so should not have been lost on the bridge!

This is perfect for Anaesthesia. I'm re-reading Neverwhere at the moment, and it's a great snapshot, so to speak, of her character.

all i can say is, "wow". and i'm usually rather nitpicky. .
it captures anaesthesia perfectly. truth be told, when i read the description i thought it would be yet *another* of those long, winding poems that simply don't have any meaning, but this is... well, the rhythm is one thing that contributes, and the other is the subtle rhyming. i say subtle because i didn't realise it was there at first. XD
i like how it portrays anaesthesia as vulnerable beneath her facade of a... well, think of how gaiman wrote her thoughts in neverwhere in terms of the "all fire burns" analogy. it makes her sound tough, and then she's afraid of knightsbridge, and it's a dignified kind of fear... but underneath, i guess we all sense that she's vulnerable, experienced way too much for her teenage years.
very nice job; favourited.
