• Donation Drive: We're looking to pull in enough donations to cover the server expenses for August and September ($140). Rest assured that the website will remain paid regardless of whether we meet our goal, but things will be financially tight for us until about mid September. Any donations that come in, in the interim, will really help ease things for us. See donation information for further details as well as information about our donation process. Thank you!

    The Vampire's Apprentice (Poetry)

    Okay, so, a friend and I were messing around a bit and it got onto the subject of poetry. I, honestly and truly, do not like poetry as much as I ought to. That said, I did my best when it came to writing this. Some context; this is in no means official or anything as I was experimenting, but I...

    Write Haikus

    I haven't noticed any threads dedicated to the subject so I'd like to open this up to everyone who would like to try their hand at writing a haiku. Check out this Wikipedia link for more information on haikus. I am by no means an expert on haikus or their history and relevance to Japanese...

    Sonnet II (Muse of mine I cannot hold you now)

    Muse of mine I cannot hold you now I cannot keep you ever in my sight Infrequent thing, you crease my worried brow When you flee quietly into the night I need you by my side through every day Not fleeting aid when strange fancy alights But oh nights when your pity goes my way We rise ourselves...

    Sonnet I (In your embrace I stay so willingly)

    In your embrace I stay so willingly Your curling arms, your sultry voice, you’re cold You’re dangerous, I fear you’re killing me By being deep and dark and strong and bold I fear for life for love for ticking time I fear no one will hold me when you’re gone And so I put my love for you in rhyme...

    LadyLynx Does Poetry?!

    Yes. Yes I do, occasionally. I have quite a lot of it, but I think it would be interesting to get additional feedback, or just general discussion about stuff and things. Most of my poetic work is standalone, but if (Bad Seafood) is in the title, it's part of the Bad Seafood series. Which will be...

    Signed The Papers

    (This is an old poem that I wrote and fixed up a little bit a few months ago. I want to keep it raw, so I am not going to change it much but feel free to leave criticisms anyways!) (TRIGGER WARNING: INVOLVES MENTIONING OF PARENTAL ABUSE) The woman and man signed the papers Changed their names...

    Interactive Poetry

    Hi there! I am Eowyn, feel free to call me that or Eo. I think it would be cool to meet people and see what great things we could create together - so obviously I though "Poetry". There are a few rules just to keep things orderly: 1. Keep up a ABBA, CDDC, EEFF type rhyme scheme. Then repeat, so...

    Fight

    Fight Elysian Kalon We all fight our own demons, Each one unique But as with every battle, There are gains, And there are losses. The demons gain ground Shoving us down into the deep depths of depression Bloodying and battering our self-confidence, Creating unwarranted fear at every sound or...

    Human

    Human Elysia What is the meaning of humanity What does it mean to be human How can we be sure that we aren’t just Pieces Of A Machine Part of being alive Is the beauty in life The beauty of having life change us The people we talk to The events we live through The ideas we have It all shapes...

    And yet, her mind did wander.

    My heart For you, she aches. My breath For you, she abates. My life, For you, she makes. My love, For you, she waits. With rich history, And culture, entwined No physical connection, But one of the mind. Unlikely characters, Forced in a dance, Will happiness end, or be given a chance? Of what...

    Rhyme Above

    It's easy, we tell a story together but it has to rhyme, and you can only use five words at a time. Here's example: The person above you says: I was on the lake You say: and I was eating cake So...have fun! STARTING RHYME: There once was a man

    Sunshine in the Night: A Poem

    Darkness falls on a silver ocean, Into it dreams fall Like teardrops Tormenting a still sea. I always wished, though I never knew I always hoped, till despair was tried and true, That I’d be here, here now, And with you. I dreamed until dreams came no more, I sighed till I had no more sighs in...

    Crafted Lies

    Quiet heart Cut the ties Play the part Quick disguise Porcelain skin Glassy eyes Painted smile Crafted lies Keep it plain No surprise Kept in chain A doll's demise (( Just a short concept poem I'm using to inspire me for a new set of character traits, as well as a potential background story...

    Deh Kitty iz a Poet!

    A Description of My Gender from a Genderless Female. I am a woman… At least that’s how you see me. You see, there is no ‘choosing your gender’ in the eyes of a stranger You are what they see you as and that is the fact Saying you have no gender when you look like a woman just makes you seem…...

    My Clock

    Tick tock goes the clock. This is not your ordinary nursery rhyme. I found myself falling into a once upon a time, where I stumbled upon a dark and sinister crime. Tick tock goes the clock. As the red queen shouts, "off with her head!" Delirium whisper's, "so we can paint the roses red." But...

    Heartbruised

    Fragile is the heart, for we deny Pain, grief, loss, Until they crash upon us, And our whimpering hearts go crashing with them, Splintering into Self-pitying shards of Annealed glass. Fragile is the heart, Even though reality isn't all Drifting among clouds, Naive and carefree. You'll hurtle...
