Rap vs. poetryMost writings about the difference between rapping and poetry are merely an artificial opportunity to note the difference between Snoop Dogg and Edgar Allen Poe or some such mismatching. Of course, we should look at the two art forms with a fair, levelled comparison, or at least objectively.Rap vs. poetry6 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Just as raps have a stereotypical subject matter, poetry could be thought of as being solely about crying, love and over-dramatic metaphor. Let's pluck a poem from the depths of deviantart.com:
"And the sun peeps over the horizon
where the sky meets earth
her rays stretch out and
caress Your face
i look down and marvel at Your
Of course, having been written by an unskilled poet with sub-standard grammar (that is, there is no significance of the grammar used in the poem), it's not really better than Snoop Dogg. If we compare it to a rap by a skilful rapper:
"Right before he pulled the trigger and ended her life,
He thought about the cocaine with the platinum and ice
And he felt st
Waiting I remember the first time I noticed Gertrude. She had been there for as long as I could remember, part of the scenery, a statue that barely registered. I was five and she was already old, though she never seemed to age. She was sitting on the curb surrounded by weathered pink luggage and I felt, for the first time, a quicksilver curiosity about her.Waiting4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Mommy, why does that lady have all those bags?" I tugged on my mother's hand and pointed at the woman not far from us. "Is she going someplace?"
"Quiet, Crystal!" Her voice was a low hiss and she pulled me closer to her side. I stared at the woman as we hurried past. She was still, like stone, her face was sunken and etched with deep lines. "Hello, Ms. Thompson."

What you did was a very bad move.
Pitch turned around slowly, his eyes burning dangerously. “Do you know this girl. . . Jack?” He asked with a smile. You stood there, frozen on the spot, crushing the flowers in your grip. You didn’t even notice that the mug of tea now spilled on the snow. Your eyes were on Jack, who met your gaze. Then he recoiled, putting his hands to his head and groaning. His staff landed in the snow.
“Ah. . . agh. . .” He staggered back like a demon presented with a holy object. Pitch turned to Jack in surprise, and then to you. You were still there, staring at Jack in complete horror.
“What is this?” He said aloud, and lashed out a whip made of black sand at you. It coiled around one of your hands, and he gave it a ruthless yank, making you stumble towards him.
You still couldn’t find the strength to scream, even as a rough hand gripped your other arm and a hand tilted your chin up.

Symmetry Gone Wrong Chapter 6~
Asura is gripping his skin scarfs around Kid's neck. Kid stares him straight in the eyes. His stare speaks with determination and gives off an intimidating vibe. He refuses to loose himself to consciousness from Asura's tight grip.
Asura stares back into his determined eyes. He looks afraid.
They stare eye to eye, moments pass and suddenly Kid's scar begins to ache again. It has a horrible burning type of feeling. Kid groans at the pain as the scar starts to grow. It spreads around his entire back and stomach. Perfectly symmetrical.
Asura looks even more frightened.
"W-What the Hell is happening..!?" He questions, trying to tighten his grip against Kid.
His attack fails and out of nowhere, a black beam shoots out of Kid's scar. It splits right through Asura, sending him flying.
Asura's body starts to shrink. He becomes 8 inches tall. He runs around in his tiny body, flailing his arms around.
Just then, Kid's body also starts to change. H

You have no idea what to do.
Another Nightmare manifests from the dark, joining its companion at the window.
You can’t let the Nightmares make it back to Pitch and tell him of the Guardians’ compromised statuses.
But you can’t call out to Jack or Sandy, not wanting to alert them, either.
Plus, calling out would confuse the living daylights out of Jack, doing who-knows-what-kind of damage to him.
So you just stand there, completely immobile, staring at the Nightmares’ dark forms hovering by the window. They begin to clop their hooves on the air.
They’re getting ready to leave.
Come on, turn around, you think, hoping that somehow the Guardian or winter spirit will hear your projected thoughts.
It seems to work.
Jack takes notice of the being closest to him and whirls around. The Nightmares nei

"All the students have been taking Miss Hawthorne's class. It's sheer lucky I'm not among the infected ones," Steven muttered, reiterating what he just told Keith. This was growing up to be a troublesome matter with things as they were. It was more than likely that she would get fired whilst the rest of the taurs might get suspended from the school or expelled just for the sake of the students.
Their voices faded into silence as they left the room. I excused myself and headed over to the teacher's classroom, seeing if I could warn her. It was ten minutes past after the workshops, it was no surprise that the classrooms were empty and the hallways were being vacated. From what my nose could tell me, the teacher was long gone.
Not finding Miss Hawthorne proved to be a small disappointment, yet there was nothing I could do against it. I stayed at the school after class more than I should have and it was only a matter of time before my parents would call asking where I was. "No poin

“It’s you!” I said in a moment of boldness, pointing at Steve like a detective would cast an accusation on the perpetrator.
There was a long silence as everyone stared at me with unsettled eyes. Surprised by the nature of my accusation, none of them knew what to argue or how to respond to that. I heard a couple of whispers. If I was gonna be preventing things from escalating, I would stick to my hypothesis.
Everyone looked at me in expectation or shock. Lavender, Paul and Josh watched at me with astonished surprise, while at the same time waiting for my explanation. Some of them looked rather impatient as well, the principal of the school, the coach and some of the other competitors. Miss Hawthorne seemed to be looking at me with much interest and curiosity.
A loud chuckle came from Steve. “Now you’re just drawing straws, Marcus. Making wild illogical accusations like that?” He said before laughing and inciting the crowd to do so as well. Few

"That was close," I muttered exiting the taur-only bathroom. It was for a single person's use, installed about four years ago. It was nice and spacey, and it has to be, because I practically wrestled to get the shorts off my extended rear so I wouldn't have an accident. I almost tripped with the toilet, and I did fell against the wall a couple of times. But luckily the situation was managed and I exited the bathroom, just in time to grab some lunch. Passing my backpack over my shoulder I headed to the cafeteria, still getting used to the glances I earned from companions that knew of my parents dealings.
I didn't want to try and deal with people I knew. It was just to add insult to injury, as there were a few that would act sympathetic towards me. One of them was my friend Trish and probably my friend Paul, who, despite her constant taur state gets to stay in contact with her and other infected. I

I sighed as I sipped my drink, barely paying attention to my surroundings as nothing that was going on around me caught my attention. It was all background really, and nothing worth looking away from my drink for.. My tail slithered and coiled around the stool as I minded my own business, the weights felt barely palpable, as if there was nothing there at all. Maybe this wasn't gonna be a problem after all. I kept minding my business until I heard a voice, a girl asking me "Are you a TG too?" My whiskers twitched as I glanced right, only to see a tigress with a beer in her hand, she seemed somewhat depressed as her ears laid hidden on her orange hair.
