October SunsetDaylight and indiglow in the descent
Heaven-sent and too soon to
Pass in a flash of fury softly
Singing the lament of the
See it pass to that last lost
Unknown where the
Unearthly sun yet descends
And leaves us to our memory of
A Forgotten Sunset.
"October Sunset" by ~UltimateOutlaw
A short, but stunning description of an October
sunset, this poem really brings the reader into the
moment, showing them the beauty of a single moment in time.

"Dead legends are italicized" by ~EmmaSloane
~EmmaSloane captures so many intricate ways
to describe normal actions in everyday life. This entire
piece breathed new life into Hemingway and I can easily
say, every line made me greedily anticipate the next.

Of the NightIn the dark of a dreamless night
There is a mountain
far in the distance.
Standing cold and stark
and challenging the sun to rise.
It stands against black velvet skies
Icy crags and snowing
twisting, writhing peaks
All just a pedestal
for one beyond us all.
She sits there on her crystal throne
Thinking of days that have been
and those yet to come.
Her liquid eyes are tears that refused to fall.
Her hair, unbound, is a calendar
Each strand another day that was spent
Waiting for the world to boil.
Passing travellers watch over her
while sleeping is fitful and rare
- she dreams of feeding needles to the rose
Of the Night by ~ladypegasus
~AlecWolfe said the following: It is well written,
the tone is strong and consistent and it is an effective
modern take on an old theme.

The Art of FishI. To not know
It was light when she returned, body aching and soul wet with the bloodiness of man, and Adrianna was already gone (probably already working, dedicated girl that she was.)
Breakfast was a paltry affair, but she was starving after an early dinner the night before, and so she almost devoured the stale bread and the almost-mouldy fromage that was left from yesterday morning. The flow of customers was unusually diminué, and so she was left free to exit the building, to leave and wander the streets as she pleased (with a stern warning to return by noon, or not at all.)
Most times, propelled
"The Art of Fish" by ~Spirit-Princess
~Spirit-Princess delivers an incredible,
beautifully written story about language, miscommunication,
and love won and lost. An absolute must-read.

Invalid Login TGInvalid Login
I finally got home from my new job after an hour of different buses.
After kicking off my shoes and cracking my back, I set my bags on the kitchen table. I heated up some day-old pasta with cheddar chunks melted in a bowl for supper and slid my laptop out of its bag after I'd had a few bites.
I thought for a moment on the third bus that I'd lost my laptop but it had just slid a ways underneath. As soon as I moved to open my laptop, I paused and rubbed my hands over the top. It felt different. I had a flash of prickly terror where I feared that I'd accidentally swapped laptops with someone else. Turning it on, I got a sudden z
"Invalid Login TG" by *majorkerina
A strange tale of computers and godlike figures,
this piece will baffle any reader in a curiously compelling
way. The piece demonstrates a variety of dialogue, from
common online dialects to nonsense worthy of Carroll,
and a personable narrative voice.
