    Abiraleft I love your pieces (you're a muchbetter writer than I am)
    Thanks But only the second piece is mine, and it's one of the few prose pieces I've written that I can dare to show in public. The first is by :adore: Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

    What kind of things do you write? I think my poems are all right...

    Hi!

    I've only read one short story by Pasternak. What do you think of Mayakovsky? I like his poems.
    Iv never actually read any Mayakovsky!
    What was the short story you read by Pasternak?
    Was it any good?

    Ok guys..... Poem time?!?!?!?!?! (cause i don't have time to write anything with more substance... eek)

    Poppy

    She walked so chaos wild.
    Her scented air like
    Human aroma.
    Flitting through lives,
    So violently treading

    Her bloodier shawl set
    On a midnight dress.
    Ugly cheeks, redder lips.
    Coal heart and darker
    Eyes. She now sees you.

    She sits by empty
    Chairs and broken beds.
    Touching the stone as
    She cries her misty tears.
    For her name is-
    Poppy.


    Tell me what you think, it's an unusual slant on something normal...(yes, i know 11/11/09 has passed, but hey who cares)

    Nice! Vague, but in a good way. If it was me, I'd probably have used superlatives for all of the adjectives that could be used as superlatives, e.g. uglier cheeks, emptier chairs, etc. but this is good as it is as well.

    You ought to! He's a good poet. I'll put up a poem of his if I can find the time.

    I can't exactly remember at the moment. I'll have to have a look for the book out of which I read it. I don't really remember how the story was, I only remember being very impressed by the note about the author in the beginning where it said that he had refused the Nobel Prize. I'll let you know what story it was as soon as I find it.

    It seems to be trying to. Quick - lets grab it, tie it's hands behind it's back and put up something to discuss!

    This seems like a good time to look through stuff I've written in the past, and put some up here...

    Hello! Please do join. Do you have good stuff you might consider putting up here?

    I've dug out the following:

    On Guernica (Untitled)

    Windows shut but never emptied,
    Doorways flattened to the ground,
    Cut-out shades of shining darkness,
    Anguished cries of captured sound,

    The limping blood of running legs,
    The fruitless search of tortured eyes,
    A shining lamp that shows the dark,
    A flying death that never dies,

    Tangled heaps of broken curtains,
    Etchings left in rotting time,
    Chopped remains of flat distortion,
    Melodies of broken rhyme.

    I write on paper mostly you see. So I can't really just sit here typing it all up. And I write on bits of paper and then lose the bits of paper.

    I am a writer. Just not a very good one! :p:

    Me too! (It was a short poem, so I took the time to type it out).

    With regard to losing work, I still lose a lot of stuff, but I find having an empty notebook somewhere in your room (mine is on a desk at the head of my bed, so that if I get ideas when half asleep (I do quite a lot) I can drag myself out of bed and write it down) helps.

    I bought a notebook for writing years ago I still haven't written anything in it. I think my attempt at a book when I was 15 sapped the will from me.

    I know the feeling - stuff you write seems corny or cliched, and you have creative blocks whenever you feel like writing, right? But you should probaby get in there and write something short, and constantly improve. :woo:
