Date: 05/31/11 Title: Chapter 1: Her thoughts linger on those silent weeks.

I really enjoyed this poem, and I especially liked the tone; it was sort of melancholy, but hopeful at the same time. My favorite lines were "We could stay here, she says, we could hole onto your numbered days./We could grow old, she says, and keep your life in our hands" because you sort of added on to the lines from the movie. Nice job!

Author's Response: Thank you :) Yes, I took a lot of inspiration from that scene in the film. It's such a poignant moment so I'm glad you liked the way I incorporated it into the poem. Again, thanks so much for the review and I'm so pleased you enjoyed it!
