    Feed in comfort of extremity
    tame the aches of a rebel
    harbor a child of pretension
    impossibility of acceptance indulge
    distorting tendencies tempt the weak
    return home colors within
    excite laughter in purity
    storm in command chill the bare
    grace may blur in blackish hue
    each tearful strand commits in truth
    an ear to the silence of symphonies
    faithful clock awaits hope to marry
    a surprise in familiarity.

    Dawn at Sunset
    Kristina

    The Pink Panther

    Scar in my heart
    Of pain, Of memories.
    Memories we shared,
    Memories unforgotten.

    Your name is painful
    A face caused thought,
    A dream caused thought.
    My life calls for you.

    The moment resounds
    the joy we had
    And the bad a times
    Cannot be found

    How can I?
    ooh! Pink Panther

    THAT WAS A LIE..

    Your voice had always lied to me..
    ‘I love you, and I will always do…’
    It was a lie which I loved to hear..
    A lie I badly wished was real …
    But it was late until I realized..
    You had an inner voice, a real one..
    Which I had always ignored..
    All the time you faked love to me..
    Your real voice shouted inside you..
    ‘I don’t love you. I will never do…
    It is not in my nature to love anyone
    And you are no exception..’
    How can that be fair?’
    You had been lying and cheating..
    You sensed love as a joke..
    A cruel practical joke..
    But I still find a meaningless smile on my lips,
    Every time I think of you….

    I need suggestions...that is one of my poems..

      This is a very good poem! It portrays the struggle between false fulfillment and real deprivation. May I suggest that you shift some of the longer lines on a new line for emphasis on that part of ... more

    Translucent
    By: Adam M. Snow

    Can't you see me,
    a ghost I am to be?
    A translucent figure without a purpose,
    fading away like a blood drop to the sea?
    Can't you see me?
    Hear my plea?
    My words, my reason to live;
    can't you hear me?
    Hear my voice, a plea of sorrow,
    tearful apologies,
    and a truthful memory.
    Can't you hear me?
    See me crying;
    the reflection you deny to see?
    Can't you see me,
    through the mirror looking back,
    a ghost I am to be?
    Can't you see me?
    I am you.

      Not all poems have to be indirect to be good. They just depend on your writing style, any one of which is unique among all writing styles. There is no bad poetry. I like your poem, by the way! Very ... more

    I don't believe that you can sit there and TRY to write; it should come naturally. Vent out your feelings, spill out your creative thoughts and ideas from your mind to the paper. Don't think too hard about writing something; Write whatever is on your mind, I guarantee it will create a beautiful piece of writing. Make it original. Have a close connection with your writing.

    Poems can be composed after learning the rules, forms and other tools of the trade, or poetry can be written impulsively. Most often we have the blend of intuition, conception and observation. After writing lines one can chisel the phrases to maintain the balance and rhythm, or create rhyming. To teach the poetry students about the cutting of a line in a free flowing verse, what rules can be discussed. How do we teach the learner where to cut the line in a free verse stanza/poem?need your ideas please!

    The Meaning of A Smile

    A smile on a face
    Can all cares erase
    It means a million things
    And countless joy to you it brings
    A smile can give you good cheer
    which brings people near.

    It costs nothing to smile
    But it means something to think awhile.
    So give your best smile my friend
    Specially to those who do not know
    How to smile.

    It can enrich the one who receives
    Yet it costs nothing to the one who gives,
    It can spread sunshine to your home
    It can spread joy where you roam,
    So smile, even when it is not returned.

    If you do not receive one,
    Then dear friend you give one of yours,
    Smile with all your heart
    And spread the joy of living,
    It is infectious, contagious,
    It will catch up somehow,
    So smile, and make it spread a mile.!
