    I'm not looking for a poem I had read. But I need your help really REALLY bad. You see, for the 'dramatic arts' unit, we have to find a poem on the theme 'The Skin I'm in'. I have looked and looked, I have been unable to find a poem that contended me. Most was too short (it has to be 1-5 minutes long for recital) or I just couldn't find it.

    Please if anyone found or had read a poem based on the theme 'The Skin I'm in' that was very deep and powerful or you really liked, tell me with its title and the author. I would appreciate it ever so deeply.

    I remember reading a poem in my therapist's office, of course I can't remember the title or poet, just that it was very simplistic and up lifting using only short phrases or discriptive words. It was to improve self worth I believe. I would be greatful for any info. Thank you.

    I hope someone can help me. I read a poem last year and I loved it. I don't know the author or the name of it, but I remember some of the phrases (kind of) and the jist of what it is about. It is a poem in which the author is listening to a new pop song, kind of top 40 song, and he is writing about the singer as well, he says something about 'the apotheosis of all that makes this country great' her groovey beat is infections now' 'her cocoa butter skin' 'can you hear me yippin out the window? '

    Again, this is only my best memory of the poem, not accurate. I have tried searching online like crazy to no avail. All I know is that it is a modern / contemporary poem and that when I did read it, I originally found it online, I just can't remember where. If any one can help, it would be great!

    Looking for a 'hospice' poem. Title might be... Gone From My Sight. Speaks of a ship sailing over the horizon, out of your sight but others see it coming toward them. Ends with... and that is dying.

    A while ago I read a poem/story, something about the stars only coming out once every hundred years or something. Does anybody know this poem? If so, let me know where I can find a copy?

      Michael, you may be thinking of Isaac Asimov's short story 'Nightfall, ' which takes place on a world which has six suns. Only once every several thousand years do all of the suns set at once. Since ... more

    i have page one of a poem i found on the internet some 4 years sgo. I believe the title is 'life' here is how a part of it goes..Life isnt about keeping score, it's not about how many friends you have or how accepted you are. Not about if you have plans this weekend or if you are alone.It isn't about if you are dating, who you use to date how many people you've dated, or if you been with anyone at all.It isn't about who you've kissed, it's not about sex....Any help finding this poem would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

    Hi Friends,
    I am trying to find a favorite poem without being able to recall the poet's name or the true title. I believe the title might be 'A Hole in the Air' or something akin. It starts out about the writer's dog disappearing which he doesn't think unusual, but on the third day he feels the loss as a hole, or space, in the air. As the poem developes, the poet comes to realize the loss of his dog, and the grief he feels, may be more about the fear of losing his true love and the 'rose-petaled dissolution' of that love. It is a lovely poem, and I lost the my only copy. It's possible the poet's first name waas John. If anyone can help me find this poem, I would be thrilled.
    Very Best!
