First off, I did write this poem as more of an open-ended question than a conclusion on what love truly is. My goal was not to press my own opinion on the reader, but to make them question their own thoughts. Alright, now this is the 6th time I have rewritten this post. I've been at it for almost an...

If you look above at my earlier post, you'll see that I wrote this originally as a trio, to express the feelings of 3 different people. There are 2 other writings that I have stored away somewhere. The first is this poem, from the viewpoint of someone who has lost everything to war and has turned al...

near silence....the soft humming of my computer's fan, a lone cricket chirping outside my window, and my fingers rapidly tapping out words on the keyboard I love the night time. Ahhh...the serenity of 2 am.

Just a thought for next week...perhaps taking a line from a song and using it as the first line of the poem, completely transforming it. Don't know if you've done this before. Only a suggestion! :-D

Mae, I don't know if this poem as any sort of correlation to your own life, but you did a fantastic job of expressing the emotion and the grieving for the little girl. I have nothing to say about this poem but, "Bravo"

Well, I'm about 24 hours and 47 minutes late of Tuesday, but here it goes! The gray gateway appears in the night. I am a wanderer, visitor to this place. The gales of December blow, chilling my spine, My nose running as the frigid wind beats my face I look back on my life as I stand before the arch ...

I completely agree with you both. That is, from my own personal opinion. I do believe that this is the wrong way to look at war. I wholeheartedly believe that our American Flag stands for much more than death. It stands for the reason that these men and women died. That reason is freedom. Sorry...ge...

Paul, I absolutely love this poem. It reminds me of a song i once heard about writing, which had all sorts of funny references to grammar and such. Anyway, I really enjoyed it,

First of all, Mlou, thank you very much for the comment. And I could not agree with you more about your statement. It is people that are so full of hate. I am simply writing this from the view point of a mother, sister, daughter, and wife who has lost everything that is dear to her. I was trying to ...

Tragic Hero, Please Crit.

Here's a poem/song that i wrote. Please Critique Tragic Hero A loving father, husband, son So reads my father’s grave An act of war, of murder, hate By the flag above that waves The flag is striped with blood It’s held by daughters’ tears And from the stars flows sorrow To anyone that hears A tragic...
