Critiques


The presence of genius is not often seen in the visage of the writer's work, but through their ability to challenge the reader to forced critical analysis. As John Stamos once said famously in his TV roles, "I like to sing with people, whether they are good or not." To the layman it means what it me...


Plenty of people, more qualified than me, have gone over with you all the necessary grammatical and structural revisions needed to polish up HYBRID, so I won't waste your time going over the same old things. Hopefully I can talk to you about the essence of a good sci/fantasy story and emphasize wher...


Before I decided to write this critique I sat here and contemplated the relevance of naming this piece "Confusion". Maybe to some it would be obvious to why you called it that, but the deep-layered meaning, the actual meaning you're trying (succeeding) in displaying is a bit more subtle. You have de...


Before I ever picked up a guitar, let alone learned to play one, I was always fascinated with the instrument, a stringed, inanimate contraption capable of aurally solidifying what I felt into music. The guitar, which is modern and vintage, cherished and destroyed (either on stage or in the bedroom) ...


Greetings! I saw that you are in the market for some critiquing. I hope I can be of help. As I was browsing around, this was the first I selected simply because of the abundance of a wondrous color palette you used, with overflowing patterns and a steadfast attitude seen in your character's eyes. Th...


Hello, I saw you posted on my thread and thought I give this amazing illustration a critique. After looking your gallery, I can safely say that you have fine-tuned your style and craft. The pure wonderment and enchantment here takes me back to when I was a child, still seeing the world as if the exi...

The Scourge of FrankensteinIngolstat, Germany.
I woke from darkness, into Hell
It must have been Hell,
Because it felt as though the torment
Of a dozen men, patchworked together
By brutal, amateur hands,
Were shrieking out in unison.
It was agony.
The torment of legion.
Pain coursing through each nerve,
Nay, in every atom of my being.
By the Divine Creator,
What had visited this suffering upon me?
My sodden eyes felt far away; foreign.
Almost as if not my own.
Heavy. Heavy as stone,
Yet beyond corporeal lay.
Where was I? Who was I?
What was I?
I lay petrified for timeless moments,
Swimming amid the tides of amnesia.
Like the trance of some cetacean
Swam out past the very edge of the sea.
Somewhere in the distance, in the darkness
My foggy ears heard a gasp, then a scream:
Monster! Monster!
Mein Gott im Himmel , was habe ich getan ?
?
Was I in Hell?
Was I dead?
My memory was a diorama of fractured scenes,
Hideous upon their lethargic clarity.
I slowly, painfully remembered
Blue eyes and rosy, soft lips.
I recalle

Amy Rose one day looked at her self in the Mirror and saw she was not really that pretty anymore...
She told herself surely, "Better put on some makeup.."
Someone told her, "Like a slut!"
Amy Rose looked up and asked, “who said that...”
Her reflection answered, "I did slut..."
She told it firmly, "Well I am not a slut..."
Her reflection answered, "Look what you did to Sonic..."
She looked at her bed and there was Sonic laying in it...
She told her reflection, "He's fine..."
Her Reflection said, "Look again bitch..."
Amy looked again... There was Sonic laying in a pool of blood with a large knife in his stomach with a look of Horror on his... Fresh signs of rape surrounded the corps!
Amy asked scared, "who did that?"
Her reflection told, "You did slut!"
Amy said, "Well that gets rid of any further chances with him..."
Her reflection told her calmly "Try the Fox Boy... he is cute and obvoiusly loves you!"
Amy said, "Yeah... He! HE! He does!"
Amy proceeded to clean
  Sweet DreamsYour damaged brain
Is not enough
I want you dead.
I am so glad
Babies you can’t have
All those moments
Are fading away.
The gorgeous eyes
Who adores you
Are lifeless
Crying blood.
I killed your love
With pleasure
The endless screams
Music to my ears.
Forgotten peace
You won’t sleep
Reminding
My laugh.
Disturbing you
In the dark.

Panic In The AirMadness
Around the world
The time
Has come for us.
All the conspiracies
All the secrets
Led us to this battle.
Fake leaders arrive
From the skies
They want to conquer
Our hysterical minds.
To the darkest place
Isolated the stars.
The human rights
Will fall.
Fully loaded
Laser beams
Spreads fear
In our flesh.
All the ways
Are death
Waiting for souls
That always beg.
You can hear
How a bone
It’s smashed
On the floor.
Animals
We are animals
Hunted by a
Superior race.
(8/8/14)
  ClonesNo one reveals
The death of me
They won’t let
My blood go.
By their hands
I mercilessly died
Without revenge
With no alarms.
Far away from me
That liquid called food
For weeks or years
I really don’t know.
Experimental
I was only experimental
Never a living thing
That paid for its sins.
Failing
Falling forever
I didn’t reach
The expectations.
So
They finally let
My essence die.
To create a new one
That continues the cycle
An infinite painful circle
My eternal life.
Where I’m decapitated
Incinerated
Dismembered
Tortured
And hopeless.
Soulless body
I own vessels
Created to be murdered
Over and over again.
(30/9/14)
  I, HomunculusWhite ribs gleam like soft pearls and hands the size of roast doves
Rattle the lock of his skeleton cage.
The bone-curves are wet.
His enormous head and outrageous feet glisten and glam
in a numinous, tissued night.
Dangling balls curve away.
They are heavy and impolite.
They drag over every spongy crevice.
He hates them.
Very much.
He was drowning in massy darkness.
He was well and truly alone, terrible in his solitude.
He scored his breasts and turned to pare the flesh
From his head, snick, snick.
And by the way . . . he is not,
Not Not Not. He is not a Homo
Not a Homosapien.
He is Homunculus.
Proud.
Bold.
Strange.
The thump-bumpity-bump heart stops.
He pokes and pokes and pokes.
It stutters and fires badly.
Trembling fingers undo
The Catch,
The Lock,
The Ward.
The Latch of Invisible Things
He once thought Invincible.
Kachunk goes the Crank.
He Cracks the Cage.
Light and Air.
There is
Air.
And light.
Breasts of Bone splint shatter
Among dross and grossly maligned things.
He is crazy


A CERTAIN SWELLThere is darkness behind her eyes. It is profound, sad and growing and she cannot contain it. Something is pushing her. She is infested. Bones crack. Tendons rip. This thing extends beyond her ability to fathom. Soft black pooches raccoon otherwise pale, blue-veined lids. She slits her grey eyes and cups her oddly shaped belly, feeling it’s subtle vibration. Her stomach purrs or hums or judders. She brushes her fingers across the rounded protrusion. A random thought crosses and re-crosses her mind. She thinks a certain swell complicates things.
Her body is hard and she feels sacrificed upon the press of time. Almost thin to the bone, she can watch her skin ripple with forign currents. Thoughts swirl like the change of seasons. Opinions play out. She is in search of meaning, beyond ‘it’ and its requirements. Her days are spent foraging certain leaves; they taste horrible but nothing else will do. She has stopped trying to explain to him for he thinks she has lost her m
