Reaching for Hope

There she goes again,
Falling into oblivion.
Outwardly she’s all smiles
And not a care in the world.
Inwardly she’s screaming,
Trying to wake up
From this nightmare
Who put a box around her heart,
This nightmare who intoxicated her dream.
“Wake up,” she pleads,
“Don’t leave me,” she cries,
All night as she is descending.
There she goes again,
Falling into oblivion.
There I am,
Pressing against the glass,
Looking in at the girl falling,
Wanting to save her from her nightmare.
I blindly reach out for my hand
Through the glass,
And into the darkness.

Secret Forest

Twisted tree tops
Sway in the wind…
The carving trunks
Are grounded in the sand…
These trees bear no fruit-
At least none that I may eat-
These trees have no greens
Around them at all…
Together they make up
The Mad Forest
Created in my soul…
Spreading and sprouting
Their poisonous growth…
They o and go
To where I do not know…
This forest is so dense
So forbidden…
No wonder
Not one can find me…
I am not lost
I am hidden…
I am kept quiet
Among the sway of branches…
The twisted tree tops laugh
As they keep my secret…
Reveal my Secret Forest
And find me hidden…
For my soul
My love
Is not forbidden…

To post or not to post.

To post or not to post that is the question.
Depends on if you crank them out and want to get published, or if you do it just for fun and relaxtion.

I guess in the end if someone steals your stuff and gets it published and you see it, it will make you smile knowing it was good enough after all. But again how will they follow up a success if they used your stuff?

It might also give you more incentive once you know you have been published. I guess take a chance or not. I'd be more worried about putting a novel on the web, one chapter at a time that took years to write then a poem that might day a few moments in time. It's up to you.

that makes sense. i was thinking about putting a chapter of my book on here to get some opinions, but now thinking about what u said, i think i'll just wait on it. b/c chapters do take a lot more time than a poem. thanx
