Chapter: The Day the Music Died

I like this one! The title grabbed me but it's odd because the song is so very different. I have to admit I was sort of thinking it might be more 'The Day the Magic Died.' But then I reread it and you made a lot of references to sound that I thought supported the title and really gave it a visceral feeling. Good imagery again, esp. the lines about Time freezing. And it read very easily-good flow (for me) Nice job! ~Gina :)

Author's Response: Oh, thank you. :) Yes, I wanted to explore silence, and was listening to my favorite song and realized what a perfect match that phrase would be. I'm so happy to see a review from you!!! Thank you again, and I'll be sure to keep looking out for your work! ~Nagini

Chapter: The Day the Music Died

I am not a poetry person, but I would have found this easier to read if you had not used capital letters at the start of each line. I took every line as a sentence at first before I slowed down and had a second read. It flowed much better then.

Author's Response: Thank you for your input! :) I'll see about perhaps changing up capitalization in my next poem.
