Well this is something different.

The actual rhythm and rhyme was a little uneven in places and yes, it took a few read throughs, but I really like the basic idea here.

(By the way, you use Tape's a couple of times in the intro, and the apostrophes aren't needed. It's tapes plural, not possessive. Just a nitpick, but typos on the first page always stand out more.)

This was most certainly a horror poem, and gave me chills at that! However, it was a little hard to follow. I liked the vague and eerie format, don't get me wrong, but I'm unsure of the relation of the man/narrator to the girl/(presumably Samantha)? Also, does the piece ever state the girl's name as Samantha or is the girl that was kidnapped not Samantha, or did I did miss the point in the piece where the identity of Samantha is revealed?

I feel like a lot of my questions went unanswered in this piece, but I still liked it nonetheless!

An interesting story poem. The remorse and sadness are palpable. You can decipher what has transpired enough through the broken memory sort of dialogue that reminds me of stories like Memento or Rashomon

I really enjoyed this. Quick and entertaining.

Well, this was strangely captivating. The rhyming was choppy, but added to the gloominess of the story. I feel things were purposefully out of place, in order to create a feeling of mystery and discomfort.

I liked it.
