on night breath collision
night breath collisioni knew that we weren't meant
to last forever. we'd fired
shots at the bulletproof sun.
i ignored the others for
pulses, strobes, and light,
palming a smoky sky in a cold,
cold world alone.
we are the fringe on a
poised above a soul sea frozen
in a filthy sheen.
i was the one who kept
myself hidden in newspaper;
you were the one who
destroyed the world.
your words fell like bruises;
exhilarating pain stabs and
scissors across my jagged
earlobes and into the leaking earth.

"--Put periods just after these words: sun; alone; sheen; world; earth.
I also think you should put a semi-colon, or a dash, behind the words: newspaper; bruises.
This will help slow your reader down a little, allow them to absorb and comprehend the words they're reading, find the story you're trying to convey.[...]

MetamorphosisBelly-up along a sleet-slick sill:
a caterpillar caught in the cold.
Behind thick glass, frost-thoughts are filling
teasteam, leaving trails on dark windows.
Out passed the grass, burdened with winter,
snowflakes blur a comet's shooting tail.
Beneath bone-thin trees, wolves howl windward;
the forest, caccooned, changes for dawn.
Sleepless Heavy-handed, depression is found tucked
behind half-empty juice bottles
and a butter drawer stocked instead
with cardboard boxes;
it's needle pricks,
prints smudged by finger sticks,
test strips dropped like breadcrumbs.
You'll ask what happened
in the morning
when you wake to a litter
of empty wrappers on my side of the bed.
I'll tell you I saw God
swallowing the world.

around a snow-heaped dumpster hangout
haggling the price of tomorrow's meal
in squawks, bobs, and scraps
regurgitating last week's rotting news
and last night's burnt spaghetti
I imagine them human,
tall and proud in ruffled, rumpled suits,
feathers greased sleek in topknots--
beaks painted bright in pantomime

"Another stellar piece! I really love the scene you created here. You said the tree took a lot of time to do, and your effort has not been wasted. It's very fantasy-looking with the purple leaves and twisted tree trunk. The grass is also pretty classy looking (and do I really need to say anything about the water after the last critique I wrote XP )
The unicorn is beautiful. I can tell he (or she?) has glossy fur and hair. He's obviously magical too, as evidenced by the glow cast on the leaves by his horn. I think the magic effect is a tad lost in the bright colors though, especially with the horn being so thin. If you had beefed up the horn or somehow emphasized its separate-ness from the glowing leaves around it, the effect would have been nicer.[...]

on God Help the Outcasts
"This piece takes me back to the beauty that was shown in the film The Hunchback of Notre Dame. God Help the Outcasts is the most beautiful song I've heard from Disney so she made a great choice. It's very easy to picture the song and emotion even though the character shown isn't Esmeralda. It just reminds me of how awesome cartoon movies really are. It really takes a true artist to capture the emotion and show it to the world. PrincessPuma is known for some wonderful ideas and even more beautiful artwork.she's definitely gotten much better over the years and I'm proud of her for it. [...]
