2. Topics (and Ideas) for Writing Poetry
Books, Poetry & Writing - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 00:21:41
Sometimes we just want to write poetry but have no idea what on; we get brain-farts and writer's block. There are a few things we might try, such as reading other poetry, or even giving up and trying later.
For me, reading through poetry possibilities strikes the writer inside me. It says, "Hey!...

7. Love Poetry
Travel & Places - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 00:20:31
I love poetry. And I'm not the only one. It has touched everyone, even if they don't realize it. A love poem is described simply as a poem about love, but it can be much, much more.

9. Poe's Love Poetry
Relationships & Family - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 00:20:33
Poe has always been one of my favorite authors. At first, I was required to read his writings for 7th grade English class, but later, I realized that they are much more than a tool used by teachers to torture their students. They are brilliant, at least in my mind.
Edgar Allan Poe is perhaps bes...

healthy-living - Mon, 05 Mar 2012 02:44:54

17. The Right of Gay Marriage
Entertainment - Sat, 02 Apr 2011 04:51:02
To me, marriage is something which should be amongst two people who love each other. It doesn't matter if one person is male and the other is female or if both are male or if one is trans-gendered. Why should I care? They aren't marrying me.
I know, I know, your religion says it's wrong. That is...

culture-and-society - Sun, 26 Jun 2011 11:47:31
The Royals players have been through a lot the past few years, decade, two and a half decades. It wasn't entirely their fault; they just weren't very talented. Hopefully the rough times are over soon, but that is yet to be seen.

23. Poetry vs Prose
business-and-work - Sat, 02 Apr 2011 06:19:59
Poetry vs Prose When expressing opinions, I've always felt better by expressing myself in poem. That's not to say I dislike prose, actually I quite enjoy it. However, whenever something important happens to me or someone near me, a poem just seems more appropriate.
