Best Friends Forever This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


We've been friends now,

for quite a while.

Through ups and downs,

tears and smiles.

All those letters ending,

best friends forever.

All those ideas,

some crazy, some clever.

We shared the bad times,

and the happiness,

We know our friendship,

would be nothing less.

The times we spent together,

I'll always keep in my heart.

We know these memories,

would last from the start.

Talking for hours on the phone,

you always had good advice to loan.

So I dedicate this poem to you,

because you're a friend who has stayed true!

I have a friend very similar to that. You're a fantastic writer. If you don't mind, I'd love to hear your opinion of my poem Broken Structure. Cheers. :)

Ha! It doesn't matter what computer you have. Just click on the box where it says to choose a picture and a window will come up. All of the pictures are off of the teenink website, and credit to the photographer is automatically put under the picture once the article is put online. After that, make sure you have everything filled out, then click submit! Hope this helps. BY THE WAY about the poem: I like it. Good work, person who wrote this. :)

Great! We all have a friend like that and it is very easy to make a personal connection, which is an important element in a poem.

Please check out and comment on my poems!

It was okay. Little too simple for my taste. Needs more descriptive words.

I really liked how you used Rhythm in your poem. It really added to the effect. I also liked how you made kind of like a limerick with your rhythming patterns. Great job(:

Your poem was good; it had a rhythm that flowed very smoothly, and was easy to read. Your figuritive language expressed your thoughts really nicely and it was very good.

I thought this piece of poetry was deep gave a little but of a heart warming feeling to me. In your poetry I found scansion, and found a rhythm to your poem. On the ending words of a verse, I also found assonance with long sounds that were the same.

I think this was a pretty decent poem, yes, it wasn't deep and powerful, but poetry is whatever the author wishes it to be. It was simple, not spectacular, but still had some good ideas. I think with more editing and focus it could be even better. Keep writing :)
