Here it is.... (Rules)
The prompt: Write something new. It can be a poem, short story or something in between. This new work must be about an emotion or feeling. Describe it, what does it look like, sound like, feel like? If you’re feeling creative, make your new piece of writing look like your emotion.

Example: If you decide on anger, make your writing red and bold. Or sorrow, deep blue and italics. OR find a photo that shows your emotion and put it at the head of your piece, draw from it, use it as inspiration.

Have fun with this topic, it can be as literal or surreal as you want. This is supposed to be fun!


Please use this format:
Name:
Title: (optional)
Story/Poem or link:

Name: Kggelen/Katie True
Title: Grief

Confusion

Wait... you're kidding, right?
Oh.
You're not. They're really
Dead.
Gone.
Why? How does that make
Sense?
I don't
Get it.
It's not
Possible.
But it happened.

Pain

It shoots through me like lightning
From the tip of my
Head
To the bottom of my
Heart.
I shake with tears but inside I'm
Empty.
Why is it that when your heart is
Empty
It gets
Heavier?

Hope

It sprouts from the
Cracks
In my heart.
Roots traveling and
Mending it.
But the cracks are still there. Because You're not.
Yet, I hope.
Why
Do I hope?
What is there to gain from hope except
More
Pain?
I guess hope is
Temporary. But
Pain
Is not.
or is it?

Good job! I thought it was supposed to be about a feeling though. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I like your poem Numey, but two quick things- according to the prompt, it must be new (as in written solely for this contest) and should be geared towards an emotion. While the emotion thing can be bended, and books can cause emotion, it's not the real thing we're looking for.
My apologies. You are a great poet, I'm looking forward to your new poem, as I'm sure you'll write.

❄️ Propertea Of Frostea ❄️ Bitter SnoBerry ❄ (BerryNumey) Hey, I wrote this yesterday...for the people I miss, it is a kind of feeling so...

Name: Numey
Title: I Miss You
Story/Poem or link: http://www.goodreads.com/story/show/3...

Only five years I knew
The very part, the best of you...
Now-
I miss you,
I really do..
Maa, I dream about you...
You visit me in my visions,
Out of the blue...

I miss more, than what I have,
I show less than what I feel
I shed the same, in and out, the tears

Four times twice you stayed,
Million stars with you swayed
I don't miss you so much, I stare...
Apple you called me, now I seem betrayed...
Please visit me in my dreams,
For I have craved...

I've missed more, than what I had
I've expressed less, than what I could
I now will no more grieve,
For the loss of you,
But I still miss you; my guardian angels.
I know you know that, my dear angels.

Oke-doke!


Eleanor Is Bad At This (audinosbiitch) Is it still open???

*cough cough*
Name: Eleanor
Title: Understanding.
Story/Poem or Link:
It's difficult for me to say,
Just what your words mean to me.
And I know it's impossible...

For me to understand,
Everything in your mind,
All you're going through,
All this crazy s***...

But that doesn't mean that I won't try...

Tell me, tell me how you're feeling.
Don't let it all fester inside you.
All I want to do is understand, make you see,
That just because it's said, doesn't mean it's true.

All those things that you've been told,
They make you feel misunderstood,
Make you think it's impossible...

For people to see,
You're not that bad,
Not all the time.
For them to know.

You're just what they're making you be.

I know I can't make it all right.
Because some of it's my fault too.
But that won't stop me from living it out;
From trying to help, trying to understand...

Don't ignore what they say of you,
But don't let it run your life.
It's useful stuff to know, you see.
But don't let it cause you strife...

NICE JOB! THAT WAS AWESOME!! And yeah, I believe you just made the deadline.


message 46: by Just Joe (new)

Just Joe (JustJoe) All of the entries are very nice ^_^ I like them all! It'll be a hard choice!

Elanore: what is your poem about? I realize it's understanding but it seems deeper, if I may ask that is.


message 47: by Eleanor Is Bad At This (last edited Oct 30, 2012 07:49PM) (new)

Eleanor Is Bad At This (audinosbiitch) Understanding, Encouragement, Learning from Hate... Don't you dare ever, ever hurt yourself because of something someone said.
