Very touching. I loved the way you used simple words in such a powerful way that anyone can relate to. It makes me sad, but in a good way.

I suppose that is the way to live life to the fullest. Coming to terms with danger so you can put it aside. None of my friends seem to understand that.

This poem is fantastic. I love poetry, and I like the way you set this poem in a scene. The repetition of the two sentences is great and it has a real effect on the poem. I love the meaning. Amazing job. :)

Wow, that was very powerful. I loved these two lines: "People put our little whispers to a stop,
Told us to blow out the light". They're incredibly potent.
This shall definitely go into my favourites.

(Editing previous review due to grammar.)

I can safely say this is one of the best poems I've read on this site. It's haunting, reverberating, and beautifully structured: you use two different sentences (And they wondered why we smiled / People reminded us life was dangerous) to keep continuous structure throughout the piece, which works in a brilliant way. And not only do I think the lines are good, they also make me think, and realise: think about the world, and realise that sometimes, somewhere, indeed, people don't understand why some people can enjoy life to the fullest. And I think that is part of your theme for this poem: to show the differences between people, how one doesn't understand the other and, in result, they both question one another. Lovely work, Anna! Just lovely!

(And I don't overact at all.)

Oh, how I love poetry! And this was a great addition the the HP poetry library. I would describe your poem as haunting, full of words that illustrated a happy time. I think the line, "And they wondered why we smiled" was very powerful, and a good thing to have repeated through the poem. Great job.

I'd like to say, this is a lovely and extremely thoughtful way to express your feelings. It made me sad to read this. It was beautifully written, full fo thougth and feeling and past experiences. Kudos.

That was so sad. I have a twin sister, and as often as we fight, I can't imagine her dying. Your story brought me very close to home. You really captured Padma and Parvati well - this poem brings to mind the image painted in Goblet of Fire. I give you the highest grade on this poem. Great job!
