“Crazy people are considered mad by the rest of the society only because their intelligence isn't understood.”
― Weihui Zhou


The world holds us
in the deep hollow
of her smooth palm
like silvery ethereal
dust motes;
suddenly
she sneezes,
blowing us away
onto the floor,
then crushes us
with her
stiletto
as if we were
expendable cockroaches
Crunch!


The author's comments:
MyApocalytic writes about the sexy lady earth is. Well, this is my response of the b*tch she can be at times. What? I was upset when I wrote this. Oh, by the way, they didn't have a picture about someone crushing cockroaches. So I had to suffice myself with this picture.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
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

Thank You :)  :)

Glad this poem could introduce you to a new word. Poetry does that for me too. There was a poem here, I don't remember which one, that introduced me to the word ennui. I was so inspired I wrote a poem featuring the word. Any who, thank you very much for commenting.

Thank you so much. By the way, what word was that? I'm glad this poem had that effect for you.

Actually the thing is I haven't been writing much either and well I've read stuff yours and everybody's but haven't commented a lot and well I guess I can't come here as much as I used to because the next 7 months are the most crucial part of my entire education because the result of the exams in May may or may not get me into a University of my choice so anyway....it's all pretty tough and montonous and vexating right now. Just pray. :P

Hey, Dua. It's true: we don't catch up that much anymore. So sad. :( I miss all of you, literary siblings. Have a great winter too. I am very happy to be published. But much happier to hear so much love from all of you. I'm honored and humbled. Thank you! ^u^

Being published, being congratulated by my amazing friends (literary siblings, contemporaries), and being told that they're proud of me—what more could I ask for? Thank you so much. :) :)

Congratulations Mckay. I got this email and amongst so many other things. This one thing caught my eye. You must be ecstatic. And so am I. Have a great Winter ahead. Missing you a lot. It's sad that we don't catch up much these days.    As for this poem, I love it like all the rest. Not to make them all seem the same, for each is unique. Just saying that you should know how much I like all of it. Oh, and I saw that you put up some new song lyrics. MUST go see those as well. Love, Dua.
