You are boundless and
I enslaved; you want limits
And I your freedom.

Thanks, MyApocalytic. I'm so happy that I haven't screwed up yet, if I haven't already, in "amazing" you. Wow, can't believe I can amazq anyone with my poetry. And yes, I agree titles are everything. Honestly, with me, if the title doesn't capture my attention at once, then the work most likely won't capture my attention either. Glad you love—no wait, "freaking love the title". Thank you so much. And never cease to amaze me either, so the feeling's mutual. By the way, any luck with the impossible poem; I'm eagerly awaiting it. I might have one for you called Ennui. Read it if you ever can.

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

Awww...Me TOO! It was one of the best days! And thank you. :D

I freaking love the title. The title is everything. And the emotion/situation captured in this beautiful Tinypoem is not one we usually see, but I love that it's there.  You never cease to amaze.

Thank you, Saphira. Looks like we're the winners of the haikus this day. So happy I can share that honor with you. I'm going to read yours right now. I know they'll be amazing, more so than this little piece. Thanks!
