"Another Languid Lucid" by `Drunken-Splice
Most of us have a WUI "Writing Under the Influence"
and it safe to say little ever come of it,
this is just not the case with `Drunken-Splice.
His poem is full of wonderful imagery.
It ends fantastically and well. It's brilliant.

BeatHer heart is still beating
For the time being
I hold on
To her frozen hands
And cast away my tears
For now I must remain a man
It eases the pain
When I lay my head down on her chest
And listen to the sound
The beautiful, tear-jerking sound
Of her heart, and of her breath
The sound repeats
It mocks me
'Tis a terrible beauty
It beats again and again
Soon it will cease
But for now we both lay
Savoring the beat
Again and again
And as we lay
That which I never had before
The beat in her chest
The bang of the drum
The sound that resonates
It lives, it hums
Since we have lived
Both of our hearts beating
"Beat" by ~WillSchenck
If you've never been on a deathwatch,
read this and you will be. This
piece is heartrending, full of

that places you there, makes you
feel what is felt, it might even
make you cry. An excellent read.

Inside it was dark as was to be expected at this hour. A glance down the hallway and into the parlor showed no people, also to be expected. It might have been a nice house, it might have been a dump; darkness hides both just as well.
Climbing the stairs that ended just in front of the door was almost as easy as getting the door open. The trick is knowing how to move on th
"In the Night" by ~alwayssleepin
You can't help but feel intrigued at
the casual tone that the narrator
takes as you read, only to realise
how chillingly callous he really is,
and how it's really just part of his job.

"Doomsday Serenade" by ~reddaverocker
Interesting look at the end of the world
from the eyes of a pair of lovers.
Great references to literary apocalyptic
views. Well written and easy to digest.
Doesn't leave a bad after taste in your
mouth that something like this could.
Very much worth the quick read.

"La vie contredite" by ~Volodia9
A beautiful poem that shows the
best way to use the French
language. Easy to read, even
for those with minimal knowledge
of the language.
