I really love how you arranged your book titles! Mine was just stacked, I will have to play around and do another one like this. Did you edit them like that? It looks like that to me, hmmm. I will go play with books later, haha.
Rusheena gave us a really creative idea and you totally done awesome with it, I wish you could have entered the contest in time!
I have the book Before I Fall, too! I loved it. I'm rambling, sorry... on to the poem...
It's hard to create such a good flowing poem with book titles, but you done it flawlessly! It's really well thought out, each title just meshed so well with the other. You set such a creepy dark scene here... of being chased after dark into the woods! Love it!

WOW Crystal...I hate that you couldn't enter on time, because this is amazing.
I don't own enough books to make this work, I tried and failed...I gave a lot to charity shops and that, just didn't have the space for them, you know...
Anyway, the poem. It flowed really well and I loved that you were able to base it on something, you gave the words meaning, this was really creative, how you arranged the books, really interesting as well, and the title...it just wants you to read, you know.
I'm just in awe of how smooth the poem is, just using book titles, that's just amazing, how you did that so smoothly.
Like Tara, I don't have enough books to work with, at the moment. After I moved, I left the ones I've read in storage, so I'm stuck books mostly titled with "The". But enough about me.
This is amazing, Crystal! Wow! The story had such depth and dark, vivid imagery and all from book titles! They all meshed together so well, and I really like the arrangement. Even though you edited them, you still used your own books, so you used a limited amount of books and still managed to make a masterpiece. The best part is that I could still hear you, your style, throughout the entire poem. That takes some creativity, and you nailed this challenge! Favorited and nominated :)
Wow. now that is amazing. I am not normally one for assuming people cheat but when I read this poem, I thought oh I see, so she has used maybe a few titles but then added her own lines in-between but then I looked at your photo and thought Omg... she is a genius!
Your poem is fantastic and it really shows a talent for this kind of thing as it is not easy to do without it being choppy and this flowed so freely like any other poem, I was speechless.
I hope this poem makes the front page... very creative and talented. Well done
This flows so well! Such an excellent book spine poem :')

Love love love the idea of this, to write about your fears into such a beautiful imagery poem. The first stanza seems to be about fears, or everything you are afraid of about the dark? Maybe not the darkness inside you either but like night time or pitch black. I believe you could say here the mind is playing tricks upon you and this is everything that you imagine the dark can hold. Love the play on midnight here, that is when to most people the world is most dark. You are trying to reach for the sun here but in vain because the darkness is there to stay. Love the imagery here as well. The ending is so well worded, because there is a huge difference between night and day, you just want the darkness to leave you alone, because you cannot overcome your fear. This was an excellent idea to write about Crystal. 5/5
