i got lost in the reality of Jonty's thoughts and his dreams. what life, love and discovery. The there and now and then was sooo beautifully detailed and described. "I roll on my stomach and embrace the ground, resting my head on my folded arms. Small bugs pop and bounce atop me. I feel them make their way across my body, and I smile because they touch me. I am alone, yet not alone, for a time I feel loved, for a time I feel needed." i loved this existence, as it was my own...thank you for such a beautiful write. i know the message lies deep below-

he is learning about himself (Short Story) - 10/2/2011 2:12:50 AM
I found myself smiling while reading this. I too have written a poem using the "er" modifiers to attempt to define a family member--my Mother. So I'm intrigued by this write, but slightly confused. The word "twins" immediately divides my mind, and reading about "one" makes me think "the other" is to follow. So in my mind, I never know which twin is which, although you state in the beginning it is about one twin getting to know the other. Thus, my mind is always in a state of confussion reading this.
That having been said, I like your writing style; one line builds upon another, creating layers of emotion that take in your readers. You've got some very unique and lovely lines here. I especially love, "One who has yet to talk to the deepest ocean in himself" (referring, I think to the second twin?). At any rate, the poem--because it is a poem, and I hope somewhere in the middle of a long-long story, is well-worth tightening up for your twins to treasure. How to tighten it up is a good question. Good luck with that--and with everything. --Charlie
