In My Loving and Dire Admiration by Cindy Matias
Price: Free! Words: 200. Language: English. Published: March 7, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » American poetry(5.00 from 3 reviews)
I've recently started exploring the art of writing and I have to say, I'm having loads of fun with it. I myself have a hard time saying what's on my mind so what better way of doing so than by writing. This is a short poem I wrote about narcissism. Love is a great thing, and you have to to yourself before you can love anyone else, but some people take it way too far. I hope you enjoy.

I wrote this poem from personal experience. There was a pedophile, a "creepy old man" in the family and no one wanted to say anything. He had been harming several girls in his family for generations.This whole situation frustrated me and all I wanted was for him to suffer and for those girls to get the justice they deserved. Enjoy.
Dreams of a Society by Cindy Matias
Price: Free! Words: 310. Language: English. Published: March 7, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » American poetry(5.00 from 1 review)
I wrote a short poem briefly touching over some issues I have with our society. These issues are mostly on my personal views but they're close to my heart and I strongly support them. I believe if people stop following and living such a "cookie cutter" lifestyle and mentality, they'll be able to see the world isn't so black and white. Life is complex and so are our problems. Enjoy.

Poetry is a place to meet. We all have a table here waiting for us. We talk, laugh, and metaphor our way through verse like intimate conversations. In our hands are the mugs matching the personalities wide and varied, they are our hearts. In them - filled to the brim - is our ink. This addictive fluid is drank slowly as we read or it's splashed down on paper. So sit and drink the ink with me.

The belief that everything happens for a reason just might be wrong. Perhaps some things happen serendipitously like walking into the street and being hit by a car, or walking into the street and not being hit by a car. It’s not always guided by some finger appearing out of the sky and with a deep Charlton Heston voice saying, “Don’t walk into the street!” Sometimes an ant is crushed...

By Rachael Alston. Written as a rebellion against the traditional love novels and mainstream movies.
