  1. Looking at my journal, I notice that there aren't that many pages. This makes me sad, because it is a really old and used to be my dad's, a memory of the good old days, seeing the happy side of him that we rarely see now.

  2. damn i just realized, your pics, Totoro and Kiki's delivery service, and your name is from Percy Jackson right?

      Yes on the Kiki and the Totoro, no on the Percy Jackson. The username is a play on “the pen is mightier than the sword”.

  5. Love

    What is love? Love is the feeling of falling: The flying feeling of weightlessness— The fear of loss at any moment. Love is the time before dawn: The sky growing more beautiful by the moment, The silence, intentional and calm. Love is the meaning of life: The ups and downs that define it, The moments of pure joy and utter sadness. He was right: she is beautiful: She is kind, and caring and smart, I love you to the stars and back Kate, Don't ever forget that. Author's note: i wrote this yesterday as some of you know, thanks @thepensword. I gave this poem to my girlfriend as a Valentine's Day gift.
  6. @thepensword can you please edit this valentines day is tomorrow and i am in a panic.

  11. Summary of my Hell of a Life:

    Early January: I read 13 Reasons Why in one night.

    January and early February: Nothing abnormal here, moving on.

    Last Friday: my school's barn dance, Zach and West got in a fight. I found out that my girlfriend (Kate) has depression and has thought of killing herself.

    Saturday: I called her, but she wasen't home, naturally that freaked me out. 

    Sunday: She called me, right after the Super Bowl (we are both eagles fans), probably the high point of her weekend. The call lasted 1hr 46min.

    Monday: Me, Micaela, Courtney, and Zach did what friends do, and made her tell her mom.

    Tuesday: I started getting sick, Kate looked depressed all day.

    Wednesday: Native Youth Olympics for the 4th graders. the cold affected my head and I couldn't think, we were out of Sudafed. Kate looked happier, I think.

    Today: After going to Walgreens to get Sudafed, I could think properly. Kate looked fine. I didn't talk with her on the deck today, so she dosen't get sick.

  13. My pessimistic brain

    Pain gives meaning too a life that would choke on the monotony. darkness brings relief to eyes clouded with pessimism, and the chaos that blinds. So I close my eyes, and darkness I see. Then breaking the silence, pale hands caressing short, black hair. Then, a dark haired man, too tall to be me. A blond woman, too curly to be you. Two children calmly playing. Then last a funeral, A tombstone. CA 2003-2031 KA 2006-2031 "Love until the end. I guess it wasn't enough." I wake wondering, and then it comes. Pain is meaning, Meaning is love, Love is loss, Loss is pain, and the circle continues. lost in love is meaning and pain. Author's note: CA is my initials KA are my GF's initials I am a pessimist

    Pain gives meaning

     too a life that would

    choke on the monotony.

     

    darkness brings relief

    to eyes clouded with pessimism,

    and the chaos that blinds.

     

    So I close my eyes,

    and darkness I see.

     

    Then breaking the silence,

    pale hands caressing

    short, black hair.

     

    Then, a dark haired  man, too tall to be me.

    A blond woman, too curly to be you.

    Two children calmly playing.

     

    Then last a funeral, 

    A tombstone.

     

    CA   2003-2031

    KA   2006-2031

    "Love until the end. I guess it wasn't enough."

     

    I wake wondering,

    and then it comes.

     

    Pain is meaning,

    Meaning is love,

    Love is loss,

    Loss is pain,

    and the circle continues.

     

    lost in love is meaning and pain.

      First, go submit it. It’s great. 

      that’s always my advice to submit it, btw bc it’s easier to find and also the same people are seeing it so *shrugs* this isn’t official

      also I get not wanting to submit crap. But don’t worry about that bc we all do sometimes. I have literally written stuff to post straight in the submission box and posted it anyway

      wow I really like this!! I do have a few suggestions but they're mostly grammar/mechanics related so here goes:

      Quote

      Pain gives meaning,

       to a life that would,

      choke on the monotony

      I'd say get rid of both commas, they interrupt the flow. also you might add a period at end of the stanza to be consistent with the rest of the poem.

      Quote

      darkness brings relief,

      Quote

      pale hands caressing,

      grammatically, no commas here either.

      Quote

      Then, a dark haired  man, too tall to be me.

      A blond haired woman, hair to curly to be yours.

      I like these lines. I have a suggestion, though, if you want to parallel them more -- maybe change the second line to "a blonde woman, too curly haired to be you" to fit with the direction of the first line more??? does that make any sense??

      (also the word "to" should have two "o"s in the second line, but that's probably just a slip-up)

      Quote

      "Love until the end, I guess it wasn't enough."

      ooh I also love this, but I feel like it might be more striking as two sentences -- "love until the end. I guess it wasn't enough."

      Quote

      Pain is meaning,

      Meaning is love,

      love is loss,

      loss is pain,

      and the circle continues.

       

      lost in love is meaning and pain.

      wowow I love this ending! I'd just say be consistent with capitalization.

       

      overall this is a beautiful poem! it's well written and powerful. keep writing my friend!!!

      Something related to an inside joke is always cute, or you could go sentimental and get her something she said she wanted to see/do/try

      follow your heart pick an activity that you guys always said you wanted to do and go do that activity 

      ex. you both always keep saying how you want to go eat out at that random small pizza place, go eat at the random small pizza place.

      do something that comes from your heart show how much you care

    Does pain give meaning or answers? But the star-eyed being is silent
  20. intro things :D

    Hello, I'm Connor. Well my name isn't Connor but who cares anyway. But for anyone who cares, I'm a dude, a total nerd to the point that it's a miracle that I have a girlfriend. I'm 14, half Athabascan and the other half I'm a boring stupid white person. My life is boring so I'll try my best to write interesting stuff.

      Yuss! To be honest I saw it for the first time when I was about eight, but dinosaurs were always my favorite, and that show speaks to me.

      P.S. Not in a weird way, just in an, um, slightly less weird way.

  24. Kate

    Kate November 30, 2026 "I love you" I said. "T-10 seconds" the loud speaker said. "Don't die" I said. Kate laughed, I love her laugh, the one part of her that is free, not filtered by the social norms. This time it was forced, a nervous laugh, as if she was about to cry. It made me realize just how much I would miss her. "Send a message everyday" I said. "You know that that the radio is for emergency use only" She said. "T-8 seconds" the loud speaker said. "Isn't missing me an emergency?" she laughed again this time less forced. "No Connor, it's not." she said (T-6 seconds) "The world doesn't revolve around you." "Aww why not?!" I said in my best 2-year-old voice. Finally, she laughed normally, the laugh was the same as the one I remember from my 8th grade year. "As the stars shine from the heavens, I will remember the stars in your eyes.'" "Remember what that's from?" I said. "How could I forget, it was the card you gave me in 6th grade." "Do you remember why?" "No." "You were going to Kansas for your cousin's graduation. Longest 4 days in 8th grade" I said. "Shit, what is today?" "The 30th." "Oh my god how could I forget." "I don't blame you you had to much on your mind. . ." "T-5 seconds" "I have to go" she said "I'm going to miss you. " "I love you Kate. . ." "I love you to Connor, happy br. . ." she said something else but it was lost to the sound of the rocket. That Night I was lying on the couch with a tub of ice cream watching Netflix when, from out of nowhere someone pounds on the door. I stand up to quickly and drop the tub of ice cream on my foot. "Shit!" I shout. I answer the door an out side is Micaela, a childhood friend of me and Kate's. "happy birthday, you look like crap" she said, walking past me and going to the pantry and taking out the cookies that Kate made before she left." "Same to you" I said, "minus the birthday part." " Bet you I miss her more than you." "Don't tell me we're starting that again." "No just had to say it, seams like her Kansas trip on steroids." "Why are you here?" "Zach wasn't helping my depression, I thought you might help." "Oh, how is he? I didn't know he was back." "Scared of the smallest noise, but a smarter person. Thinks before he does stuff." "Really why are you here? You live in Alaska, I live in Florida, you don’t just stop by because you feel depressed." "Kate wanted me to give you this," she said, handing me a red heart shaped sticky note. “I miss you already.” - Kate “It’s the same one” I said. “Why not.” “I thought it got thrown away when we moved.” “When you moved, Kate gave me a box of old letters. That was in side, along with the quote she gave you for your 14th birthday.” “You came all the way to Florida to give me a piece of paper? That’s like as far as it gets, staying inside the country.” “I’ve been here for a week, I came to wish her goodbye.” “You need a place to stay? We have another room.” “You, have another room Connor. And yes, we need a place to stay.” “We?” “Oh, he’s here too.” I said. The End Authors note: I took actual people and changed their names, I changed mine to Connor to simplify things, and so i don't put my real name on the forum. It is the same "Kate" that i mentioned in my last post. the heart shaped sticky note is real, along with the birthday card, and the poem I wrote before "Kate" went to Kansas. my gf "Kate" has always wanted to go to space, that's where the idea for the first half came from, then i got a flow and kinda went with it. it took 4 hrs to write this, i am a slow at typing on my phone. and of coarse critiques and edits are helpful.
