    Hey everyone.
    I would really appreciate it if you could read my poems and tell me what you think. Especially Fighting Mere Existence as I consider this to be one of my better poems. Please don't hold back anyhing you wanna say. My name is Mathew Lewis and you'll find my collection of poems under that name. Email me if you want as well.

    I was just wondering. Does anyone know the structure of a Haiku poem. I am not entirely sure. Please feedback.
    Love Becky

      it is a standard 5-7-5. but i've read some haiku in a free form, as long as the syllables total 17. an important note; however, is the topic. it is about nature (as japanese writes) .

      3 lines, 5 sylables, 7 sylables, 5 sylables.

    Hi everyone,

    Would request all my friends on this site to read (and comment) my short story published in www.tsvhari.com.

    That site also contains two of my poems.

    Thank you.

    I was just wondering if anyone could read some of my first poems and give me comments:

    Oh, oh! How absurd!
    A tiny fish ate a great big bird!

    I will not go fish.
    It is a very cruel sport.
    Think how the fish feel!

    And no, I'm not addicted to fish!

    I was wondering if some of you could read some of my poems and give me a reply as to what I am like as a poet, just so I could do better with my writing.
    Thanks, Rissa: -)

      I think, as a writer, you need to do some free verse. I'm not saying that rhyming poems are bad or anything, I write them a lot. But sometimes free verse expresses feelings better. Overall, however, ... more

    Am I the only one who prefers to type his 'poems' rather than write them?

      I write them out, edit them, type them up on the website and them write them down in a notebook so I can have a hard copy of what I've written incase the website screws up adn I lose my data. :)

      im not sure about you but i actually write out all of my poems in a journal, then put them on here

    • Rookie Lydia Francese (6/2/2006 9:45:00 PM) Post reply

      No, you are not. I sit in front of the new poems list or in the forum and wait for a word in a poem to strike me into the urge to write (type) . -Lydia

    Thank you!


    My feelings for you make me wander off,
    Thinking of the good times we had,
    Make me smile,
    From the bottom of my heart

    From the first time I saw you,
    You have been attracted to me,
    I’ve never dared to admit this feeling,
    Because I’m scared,

    I’ve finally dared to admit this feeling for you,
    But your heart is flying away from mine,
    You’ve started to built a wall between us,
    Which is why I was so scared from the beginning,

    My heart is starting to fall like dead-leaves,
    You made me hate you and,
    At the same time,
    I love you

    Following Dustin's suit here is one of my newest poems. Hate it, love it comment on it regardless

    much love, ~Dana~

    Who Might You Be?

    Do I know you?
    I swear I've seen you once before
    A reflection in the broken, dusty mirror

    Perhaps I passed you in the hallway
    One thousand, two thousand times

    Do I know you?
    By any chance a resident of my dreams?
    I know your face
    With a touch so familiar
    It echoes through my memory

    Should I know you?
    Sitting square before my eyes
    The perfect camoflauge

    And I too dense to realize
    Ask only one question,

    Do I know you?

    A Confession

    A mother and child
    So close together
    Yet so far apart

    A barrier between them
    So creativly smart
    Torn down by words

    A talk
    A confession
    A simplicity of trial and error

    Problems resolved
    Questions burned down
    A mind will soar

    An hour or two
    Words are complete
    What is born will end

    All in all
    They are both saved
    And end with an embrace
    And I LoveYou

    Hey groovers!

    Hope you're all having a really good day so far (and if you live in Britain then I hope you're having a good Bank holiday weekend and the weather where you are is brilliant!) .

    I'm writing out of curiosity really. I was wondering if you could tell me whether you think my poems are good enough for publication- you can be honest, I don't mind- because I was thinking about sending a few off to a publishing house? Either that or to a record company to see if they want them, but I'm a bit undecided. What do you guys think? Record company or publishing house (please read my poems and leave comments because it's really helpful!) .

    Thank you in anticipation, xXx Mary-Elizabeth xXx :)

    • Rookie Lydia Francese (5/28/2006 5:16:00 PM) Post reply

      Yes, I do think your poems are good enough to be published. If you don't mind, could you take a look at mine? -Lydia
