I NEVER MET SOMEONE
WHO COULD TALK SO LOUD
AND YET SPEAK SO SOFTLY
I COULD BARELY HEAR.

I … like … never … um … met … ­someone …
who … could … uh … think … so … much …
and … like … say … hmm … so … little …
that … I … er … saw … no … point … to … it …

!!!I!!!never!!!met!!!someone!!!
?who?could?use?tons?of?punctuation?
!?and!?express!?no!?emotion!?
… it … sounded … like … m-o-n-o-t-o-n-e …

I never met someone
who could fake it so well
and fail so miserably
that I stopped believing.

DidYOUum!!!hear

that?

“We are the bright new stars born of a screaming black hole, the nascent suns burst from the darkness, from the grasping void of space that folds and swallows--a darkness that would devour anyone not as strong as we. We are oddities, sideshows, talk show subjects. We capture everyone's imagination.”

i like it it alot. very creative

wow such a different view of writing in this poem than most poems. i really love it. this poem, although somewhat humorous, reaches levels of depression, happiness, and all the emotions in between. very well written!! please take a look at some of my poems please, thanks!

Your use of punctuation and capitalization is PHENOMENAL. You used them in a way that didn't detract from the message, but actually made it clearer. Rock. On.

Very well written.. And of course very true, {especially when applied to stereo-typical, surbia teens}

It's making fun of how teenagers talk and write, and exposing how with all the talk, not much actually gets said. It's also exposing someone that hides behind all that talk with lies and empty words. Sorry Joanna L. I love the poem and felt the need to respond! :) Apologies, and correct me, if that's not right!
