BrushstrokesBeneath skilled, thick, brushstrokes,
Dark walls slowly and finally grew up.
Everything became paler and brighter
In this new maturity--
Not cold but simply older.
The past becoming something
Able to be stored
Inside worn cardboard boxes
Or finally parted with.
Brushstrokes by =rockgem
From dark to light, the most desirable
transition of all. I love the imagery in this.
It's like something framed inside of a shoebox
found in the attic. I want to live in this poem.

dark green waters churn.
churning black thunder blares, bursts
the tempest roaring.
pale pearly pallid flesh fermenting
drowning in a storm.
an ivory gull,
ocean whitecaps like wingtips,
struggles in the gale.
watery cliffs pound.
heavy currents spiraling,
furious skies rain
ropes like acerbic knives strike
a stolid rotting pier.
the offing glows red.
calmed teal waters lap ashore:
Cyclone - Haikus by ~intercostal
Every metaphor is absolutely mind-blowing to
explore- and together they form an undeniably
powerful force, rushing to pin the readers
to their seats. The atmosphere is quite
speechlessness-inducing in all its glory.

the same space, time,
body beneath water;
and I love you, I
love you, I love
anything I can
and will grasp
but I forgot to say,

I could leave, I should
run, run from home because
my ankle is better now
and I know about children,
I know about intelligence
but I want to run
away, away and love you
and I swore, to her I

Aniseed. by ~Book-of-LostThings
These verses feel like amber-frozen moments,
but in a natural, physiological way, as
if the poets recollection of events were
spinning in the mind's strobe light and these
scenes were floating ashes of memory
caught in the synapse flash.

What is Love? Hey Officer Krupke.... krup you!
Alexis and I burst out laughing applauding with the audience as the lights blacked out after the scene was over. She and I were at our school play, which was featuring West Side Story. Despite the lack of funds, the tech theme managed to make it work; and make it work they did. The set looked amazing, the lights and sounds were perfect and right on cue, and the acting had exceeded my expectations.
As the lights faded out, I felt Alexis tense up next to me. I glanced at her, and as I did I heard her give a dry laugh. "T
"What is Love" by ~Methelas-the-Cold
The suggester writes, "This is a truly

story captures that feeling perfectly."

Anna Could See Angels I almost cried when Anna told me she loved me. I know it sounds as manly as a bottle of pink nail polish, but yes, when Anna first said "I love you, Elliot" I literally wrapped myself around her, trembling like an earthquake and making a steadfast effort to hold back tears.
I didn't love Anna because she was the first girl that came around. I fell in love with her because she was the first girl to tell me that one day she was going to rule the world and I was going to become one of her impish minions. And if I was an obedient and helpful minion, she might just transform me into a hu

This is an original short story, that tackles
common themes in an unusual way. It is moving,
entwining strange ideas with common issues to

realistic yet obscure. Interesting
