Tell me again, Father,
I’m the perfect daughter-

when all I want to be
is the crescent moons
resting like strong soldiers
in the grooves of my palms.

I am but
(outgrown)
lonely bones,
quaking with frostbite,
numbed with rage.

A wolf's jaw:
locked, teeth tearing
into the chilled flesh
of your neck.
I'm a wolf in my dreams, sometimes.

From the first two lines, all I can think about is Ellen Hopkin's Identical. Gods, your writing is so edged with reality its difficult to find a single flaw in it. I love how you write. I hope I can write someday like you can.

I haven't Identical yet, but I plan to.
And, I am sure you can now--truly.

Its one of my favourites by Ellen Hopkins. Have you read anything of her yet? Impulse is probably her best.

It astounds me how you can just pull me into another word with barely a page of text. You're my inspiration on dA, and I hope that I'll get to be as good as you one day. One can dream, I guess...
