When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel


When some sorrow nestles in my heart,
Or a sudden joy makes me start;
The one place I think of, my one respite,
The place where I feel like I’m in flight,
The one place where utter peace resides,
The one place where turbulence hides;
There my heart experiences calm.
And to my mind ‘tis like a balm.
Though every art of God’s: A Masterpiece!
When here my eyes fall, all aches cease.
Now tho’ what remains is but a stump,
Of the three which grew out of that rocky bump;
My respite, it still is and almost every day I,
Sit on that rock and look at the sky…

I promise to never stop reading your work. You know I appreciate it also when you share your feedback for mine; I love doing it also with yours. And good luck—no wait—GOOD LUCK!!!! And poetry is the best escape or in this case respite from the craziness of this busy world. You too are the best!

How sad they cut down your respite. I wish I had a place like that, besides my room. It's so great to read something new from you, Saphira; it's been so long. I feel like the last time we spoke was ages ago. Haha. Hope your exams went well. A+? If not you get an A++ from me for this poem.
