24a slow garnet sky,
illuminates the car
vings of their pride
;their hardened fac
the heavy scent of diesel sags around our bootlaces, inveriably halting our pace to a staccato effort...
"24" by ~gallymont
A short but stunning piece that plays with
structure and leaves the reader with a lasting
impression of the poet's description and final feelings.

Starcrossed" hear me, " she whispers,
with her arms twined around me,
graceful as the moon.
she sounds like a love song,
a whispered serenade.
she sounds like the sigh of trees in summer,
the gentle murmur of the ocean.
she sounds like birdsong in the early morning,
like the rustle of the day break.
she sounds beautiful.
" tell me i'm beautiful. "
a choked breath.
she sounds like a tale of sorrow,
as bittersweet as the falling leaves.
she sounds like a muted breath,
a quiet passing from minutes to years.
she sounds like a broken woman,
too old to be so young, too young to sound so old.
she sounds like years of hurt and anger,
Starcrossed by ~simplysamwise
Back and forth goes this poem from beautiful
descriptions to beautiful words. ~simplysamwise
has captured the essence of love. Simply stunning.

The PenA thousand bleeding hearts will pour their souls onto a million sheets of paper
As if anyone ever really cared
And they'll cut their wrists to write in red,
As if that could erase their pasts
But pain begets pain,
And that's all they've ever known.
Some things aren't so easy to forget,
Some things words can't erase,
But still they reach for the sharpness of the pen
To cut away their agony.
The Pen by ~Ravenwindracer
Every reader at some angle can relate to
this piece in the sense that writing acts as a release,
even if it falls upon deaf ears. This clearly is not
one of those pieces. Brilliant use of emotive
and universal lexis.

the cold winds of DespairSummer feels so much warmer with a girl on your arm. She once said she'd be your life preserver, and she was right; if you plunged into the river of time, she'd be there, pulling you and your arm to safety. You don't even want to think about plunging into the river of space between you and her. Last night you told her she was a beautiful woman, but you and I both know she's merely a girl, at least in your eyes.
The sunset looks so much brighter with lips on your neck. City skylines stare down upon you and never lie; their shadows overpower yours so that you no longer have to worry what she will say when she watches cars run over her elongate
"the cold winds of Despair" by ~shebledgreenink
~shebledgreenink gives a perfect description
of what it means to be lonely, and how it feels to
almost connect with someone, and then fail along the way.
