Aw! I loved it! Keep this up and you will make me cry, like Nuw. ; P That was so sweet; very Ginny. Great job!
I looked through some of my old journals that night, too. It's amazing to see just how different we are when we don't even see it happening. Amazing.
Anyhoo, that was simply wonderful, as always! I can't wait for more, hun. See you soon!
Author's Response: This is probably going to come off cheesy or cliche but I have to say it. Being the be all and end all to a family can strip you of a certain amount of your individuality. As a stay at home mom I am further limited by the fact that I rarely leave the house with out a gaggle of children. Reclaiming ( I think I subconciously picked that word)that peice of me, the unique eyes in which I see the world has made such a difference in me. Other people have actually asked me why I am so happy lately. Writing is what I love and you guys gave it back to me. Not only that but I am again being appreciated for who I am not what I do for someone. I will only slightly mar my previous statement by admitting to being a little hormonal today. The feelings are true though. I am forever indebted to you.
Rivah this is amazing! It's exactly the type of pain she should feel. The line about the heart pinned on the sleeve was perfect.
I think a sequel about her chasing after him or him returning would be perfect *hint hint*
Author's Response: Who can say no to you, Abbs? I will start on it tonight.
How much more can this hurt if “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”?
Wow. Just amazing, really. All of your poems are this way - little poems inside one big poem....so wonderful. I also liked the part with the 'dangerous dance'; it was going to be my favorite part until I read the last line. It is so true, ya know? Well, I don't...not really....but I can imagine it, I suppose. But I like the little realizations Ginny has...great job. Amazing, really.

Author's Response: Thank you so much. Coming from such a amazing poet I always find your reviews uplifting.
You know, you're going to make me cry if you keep writing stuff like this. You've done a wonderful job of capturing the emotion of Ginny watching Harry (and Ron and Hermione) leave the Burrow. "...need it be days, months or years." What a faithful young woman, and yet I have no doubt that she would wait however long it took. *sigh* Just know that you've written another very touching poem. Excellent work.
Author's Response: It just warms my heart that there are still men out there willing to admit to crying. Between re-reading HBP with my daughter and your stories, I needed an outlet for the serious amount of fluffy clouds that had been fogging my head . Going over my journal is what dredged up the angst for someone who you really care for being so close yet unattainable.
