“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


Oftentimes it came, as an unforeseen trick.
A faerie, so pretty, yet evil and sick.

Beautiful things, they come with a price,
Their tricks will leave you frozen like ice.

Once you believe them, once you have seen,
You realize your folly, well Fate is mean.

It’s not really your fault, you’ll come to know,
No human can resist a faerie’s glow.

They haunt you with passion and frivolous things,
They like to impale you like butterfly wings.

The Fey, as they’re called, they know how to kill.
The tricky thing, now, is keeping your Will.


The author's comments:
For those of us entranced by the fey.

I have trouble with sonnets, on accounts of all the rules and such. The mark of a great sonnet is that you can't feel the rules while reading the poem- I love it!!! Fabulous.

Perfection. I adore rhyming poems such as this because finding rhymes by using a thesaurus or something FORCES you to use and learn new vocab words... Great job. I love all of the metaphors, and your word choice is just... impeccable. W O W.  Great job, Jade!! (:

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.

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

You're Welcome!

First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

i wrote an article on "if God can do anything, can he create a rock so big He cannot lift it?" mostly because its a difficult question to answer, especially for a christian such as myself.
