Hm, his head above her door, eh? Seem likely, actually.

I enjoyed this as much as someone can enjoy one of the turtles dying, which is a disturbing statement because I enjoyed this very much.

A wonderful poem! I loved everything about this, as alarming as it seems. My brain is confused right now: “I liked it… but Leo died… huh?” :)

This was very well written and I was really impressed, one of my favorites. Great job!

I really have no business reviewing, as I'm a terrible poet myself but ... wow! The potential for awful here was high-Poe's poem is a very exacting template to use-but that just makes your brilliant success all the more wonderful. The rhyming was complex without feeling stiff, I felt. And I loved that it was from Karai's point of view, because it's very seldom that we get a peek inside her.

The theme also reminds me of another work of Poe's, "The Tell-Tale Heart." Was that something you had in mind when writing this? If so, just another great layer, adding even more richness.

I think the last stanza was my favorite.

Awesome homage to Poe. It fit perfectly with The Raven. You are truly a good writer.

Oh, man. I am speechless. I have no words for how completely wonderful this is. I've shoved it in front of the nose of like - at least five or six of my dear TMNT netfriends by the time of taking a moment to write this. Definitely goes in my faves. The imagery... the flawless TIMING! It's so very hard to write a poem that rhymes well, and never goes stiff or starts to feel forced at times to keep rhyming. This is the most well-crafted example of TMNT fan-poetry I've ever read, hands down. Gah.

Like most fans, I hate bad attempts at poetry and avoid fan poems in general because my expectations have been driven so low... but you, missy! You are the exception, and I eagerly await your next attempt if the poetry bug should ever bite you again!

Color me impressed. An excellent mime of Poe's rhyme scheme and meter.

O_0, Creepy... Forevermore. I'd be a complete hypocrit if I told you I knew enough about poetry to comment intelligently on this very nice piece. So, I'll just shut and stay in awe. :P This must have been though to write.

Oh. My. Gosh.

You are absolutely amazing.

This is one of the greatest things I've ever read, and, as a Poe fan, an absolutely WONDERFUL take on The Raven. The cadence was perfect, the wording was perfect, the rhyming was perfect, it was such a good read. And the storyline of the poem was great too. Excellent, excellent job. :D

-smiles happily- Leo and Karai a match made in their proverbial 'Heaven'. All I can say is that those two truly deserve each other, be it as friends, rivals or believable 'other'.

I'm not that familiar with Poe's writing (ducks as classic literature-lovers toss rotten tomatoes my way), but I am familiar with some parts of The Raven.

Brilliant job! Wow, the imagry and storyline was just flawless. Wonderful work, but then - it's really and honestly something I've come to expect from you. Anytime I see a story with your name attached, I know I'm in for a treat.

Thank you!

Be blessed,

Let’s see now… A homage to one of my favorite poets? Check. Dark and deliciously gory? Check. Imbued with that particular Swallow style I love so well? Check.

*Looks over list* Hm… yep. You’ve done it again, chica! Pure perfection.
