First off I just want to say that I've always admired your style of writing. It's complex and evoking, mind-tingling, and all around inspirational. I love everything you write.
The way you piece words together to form these masterpieces is amazing. Somehow you bring ordinary, common words together in combinations that no on would ever think of and you create this vivid imagery and raw emotion that is so unique to your writing.
I particularly like this piece. I like how it flows and the way you played with the star related themes throughout the piece. I also like how you compare the emotions and actions of the piece to binge eating. It's a topic I personally have never seen addressed before and it's just so amazing how you've incorporated it here. There is such a desolate and unfortunate feeling surrounding this poem, yet the words evoke this melancholy but oh so awe inspiring thought of beauty.
Overall it's a gorgeous piece and I adore it. Please keep writing wonderful pieces of artwork like this.
I, honest to god, think that is a wonderful and inspirational way to approach a serious topic like binge eating (or any eating disorder for that matter) I have a problem like this myself (eating disorder) and I think that this is a very descriptive and good way to describe it. I also love how you used that metaphor with the universe to express the hunger.
In my opinion this piece is very well written and impressive. I don't think that I could have written it any better myself. But remember- even with things on this website- use capitals! (Mostly for all those Grammar and spelling freaks )
I really, really like how you take such serious and important topics such as binge eating (or, in the case of one of your other poems, self-harm) and create a poem that captures it in a really poetic way. The poem itself is beautifully written (you choose such beautiful words!), I really like the way you went about writing this. As always the imagery is breathtaking. I found it difficult to choose my favourite part of the poem, so I went with two:
"the bitter taste of too many
girls with galaxies traveling the length of their spines."
between the intercostal spaces of my ribs"
The only thing that I want to say, however, is that whilst your imagery is amazing, sometimes it seems that you spend so much time doing that that it takes a while for the reader to get the message. Does that make sense? Because I think that if you hadn't titled the piece 'binge eating' it would have taken me a few read throughs to get what this poem was about Just something for you to think about, I guess.
