Poetry




Featured by: EmoSunshineMuffin
cliche is the second.....poems have been hard to write lately.
every time  i start to write the first words to come out are always 'you', or 'i', or 'love', or a combination of the three.
i think it's so confusing, and i find you everywhere, every song, ever raindrop, every smile.
           and you never see me.
of course, i know you're not looking for me anyway.
but {i wish} i could dream, couldn't i?
teenage fantasies of us run through my head like [a]pathetic lyrics.
i think of your lips on mine. warming them up.
and a tear falls down my cheek because a piece of me dies.
by the way, you have the most bestest hugs i have ever received.
so great i have to use improper grammar to describe them.

"cliche is the second....." by ToSeeAButterfly

Witty in a romantic sense. Interesting syntax that makes for
an unusual read.

"Tao of Poetry I" by almcdermid

This piece is a light-and-wonder filled take on the
traditional first sutra of Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching.

Yes, Yes, and YesDarling, I have a theory
Poetry, like humanity, was invented for love
There are other reasons and uses, of course
But all else is secondary
It is like a house, built to hold life
On concrete and wooden planks, we walk
And sure, there's furniture
And these tables and chairs and beds are important
But they are just the crutches of the every day
We could soldier on without
The poetry is the foundation
The sticks and stones
It is what will make or break us
And it is the wolf coming to blow it all away
So why do we use, use, use
Use poetry like a train station
A way to get from point A to point B
Baby, you can ride anytime
My thunderbolt over railroad tracks
Parallel like I could only dream of us being
Parallel like my lips set to apathy
Boulder-strong like my bones can only dream of being
I need to stop dreaming of the parallel of window shades
In late afternoon, on days when poetry couldn't contain my thunder
I haven't seen much sunlight since
Poetry is a staircase, an elevator
It's a car

"Yes, Yes, and Yes" by theindefinitehiatus

A slam about what it is to write poetry and determining what
poetry is in relation to love.




Prose

"Bumblefuck-Epilogue" by ElTorrente

While browsing through the humor section, nothing really
seemed too interesting to read until I came across this piece.
At first glance, it seems a little different and may not be
well liked instantly. After reading a few sentences into the
intro, I burst out laughing. It's one of those pieces that
you can reread over and over again and still laugh at the
author's twisted sense of humor. Certainly, when you're
looking through some prose to read, take a look at this
piece. You certainly won't have made the wrong choice in
doing so.

Oh wow, thank you guys so much. I had no idea I was featured at all, and I apologize for not being more gracious about this earlier.
This means so much to me. Honestly. This motivates me to keep writing.
Thanks to everyone who spent the time to view my deviation. :)

Great pieces today. Though I typically feel more connected with the poetry offerings, I think that the last piece of prose was very poetic in its delivery; almost proetic. ;)

Thank you again for providing wonderful pieces of literature for all of us to read!

Man, I keep trying to get myself to write a novel. Hell, I'd planned to start that parody thing for NaNoWriMo yesterday but I'm a bum.
