Reviews for Love Songs
Relephant chapter 1 . 1/27/2017
Do I dare to leave another praising review?
First off, there were some awesome internal rhymes. And now that I know the subject matter and context, your poetry resonates even more. I first was introduced to The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufock when I couldn't sleep and ended up listening to poetry. The way you wrote this, all soft and strong, reminds me of that reader's voice.
Dumbledore's is maybe the simplest (that is not what I meant at all - simplest, relatively) part, but probably my favorite one along with Lupin's and Ron's.

. Too much crack! poetry for me to handle. I needed to sit back and process this for five minutes before I got everything. Most things. You can certainly utilise onomatopoeia to it's peak functionality.

This is so good I thought you were almost plagiarizing, having never read your work before. So I read the poem by TS Eliot, and although just as good, entirely different. You should consider publishing some of your stuff.

I've finally found a little time to read your other pieces. This one is awesome! Your writing style reminds me of Tolkien (imposing, grand language) mixed with a poet's exacting touch. I like the way you wrote this haha, even though the pairings are a little weird. Thanks for writing this!

You've written this one shot so well but i honestly didn't like the pairings but amazingly written.

Extremely beautiful. It worked magically on two levels- as a whole and in the individual phrases and lines, for example, “blood washed is still blood spilt” and "He grows old. He grows old." Exceptionally crafted.

Holy mother of god, that was true brilliance. I didn't realize that the whole thing rhymed and had a structure until halfway down the page and then I had to read it over again.

I Love love love it. (Especially the last paragraph about the wolf)

My favorite part in this was the part about Dumbledor. Very sad. Nice imagery with the 'walking into the dark' line.

Hermione and Ginny are cute, I like how they are taking comfort with eachother.

Harry-Draco pairing... Um... I like how you discribe Harry, but there isn't any explanation of how they ended up together. Its like you've roused my curiosity, but havn't answered any questions.. Hehehe... Hmm...

The last line is my favorite. :)

You've done Eliot proud. You're homage to his style was flawless and indescribably beautiful.

Wow. That was very poetic.

This is great. I have loved J. Alfred since I met him. ;) Really beautiful. It's nice to come across a piece of prose that's dense and rich in feeling and connotation.
