Chapter: da-DUM

Aahhhh! I saw you added me to your favourites list, and I was so happy, and then I saw a nine next to your name, and thought, hmmm he must have another poem up.
So I found it and came and read this, and I love it! I confess I didn't know what metronome meant, so I looked it up on dictionary.com (very handy site). I thought it was incredibly smart to use that as a title and theme of a poem in iambic pentemeter.
I love how you start and end the poem with 'da-dum-da-dum', because it really makes the reader notice the rhythm. I read this poem kind of out loud, and of course your meter is amazing. The part in parenthases and italics in the middle has so much effect, and the imagery is so good. Being harnessed to jaws is an interesting picture one doesn't often see. I also like how it's a 'metronome of hope', like the constant rhythm ticking with hope.
Wonderful job, this poem is up there with your best. :)

Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I felt my favourites list was in need for an update, so I went ahead and added you. =) I'm glad you liked the "metronome of hope", although as Harry notices, it isn't nice to have your faith and determination attached to it when it ticks low.
