paper bird.you are a folded paper bird,
containing words so crisp, at
my touch you bend, while your
ink-stained heart drips. i know
your corners, folds and notes, and
to my doting eye, you soar, until
you are unfolded, and your flat wings are
"paper bird." by ~TheLetterM
Full of meaning, this short poem employs the
use of a lovely metaphor, leaving the reader with the
same sense of knowing that the poet describes.

you are stardust. by !tamikagrace
The truth of this poem, that we are merely who
we are, a flicker that shines brightest as we fade is
such a mature statement carried out brilliantly. I commend
this poet on being slightly beyond her literary years
with this masterpiece. Come see what you've been missing readers!

That Is The QuestionTo be...
...or not to be.
I never had any patience for Hamlet. He never asked the right questions.
Live or die. Do it or don't. Man up or back down. Jesus, make a choice. Either make a move or remove your influence from the gene pool. Better yet, ask what you really want to know.
Would it make a difference? Is there a right way to go about this?
Life and death, right and wrong. You can call it whatever you want, but it's still the same thing. When the time comes for you to fall, one way or the other, the impact will hurt the same way. The ground over there is just as hard as is it over here.
At the time, it was simple.

"That is the Question" by ~celiaalbright
Its not easy to write a piece about sheer
frustration without devolving the protagonist into a
whiny, unlikeable character. But this piece keeps the
tone perfect: slightly crazy and right from the gut.

S.O.S. No One Can Save Us NowS.O.S.
No one can save us now
"Hector," Lily's gentle voice ran softly into the night. The stars shimmered brighter at the melody, and the moon turned a loving gaze upon the harmless soul. Golden tresses dripped into cerulean eyes that knew nothing of tears. A hair tie chidingly held the locks back, but several fled from its grasp, like a mother with too many children. Her lab coat cascaded back and forth as she walked with nonchalant grace to his side. He could not have loved her more.
"I can't be free of the lab for a few minutes?" He sighed as he leaned back against the wall of progress. A chill passed through the thin fabri
"S.O.S. No One Can Save Us Now" by ~FadedServility
This is a well written piece of science fiction,
that draws the reader slowly into a world not their own.
The opening section presents the reader with a reality
that they can relate to. This then prepares them for the
introduction of the fantasy aspects, and allows them to
continue to relate to the well rounded characters.

Onvervalst Toekomstige Tijd11-02-10
Onvervalst Toekomstige Tijd
Ik ontdek pas dat ik staar
als de leegte binnendringt
en het is alweer te laat,
ik wil het zo graag vasthouden.
Leven in deze werkelijkheid
waar alle kranen open staan,
en alle inspiratie nodig
is de hoop dat ik het kunnen zal.
Ik voel het glas pas breken
als het al in stukken ligt.
Vingers nog stevig in een knuist,
zodat het niet ontglippen zou.
"Onvervalst Toekomstige Tijd" by *Marenne
Bitter, powerful and absolutely heart-wrenching;
those are but three words that describe this astounding poem.
*Marenne did well in creating this amazing poem.
