    It’s unbelievable how much this group has grown. I haven’t been on in months. Let’s keep writing! Comment on this post to give ideas for a new poetry challenge.

    Challenge: Poem of love or love lost, nine lines long, begin and end with the same line.

    Contrived from the dust of the earth,
    thus begins the search, for something we desire, through disease murk and mire. Murk and mire complete the cycle, you and I end up stifled.

  • Luke Renoe commented on the post, couch 7 years, 9 months ago

    The only thing left to move into the apartment was the couch. It was a nasty old couch they had found at a garage sale somewhere in upstate New York. How she loved it; she had always been partial to antiques of any variety. He loved it because he loved her. He knew that for […]

    He approached the skeleton; it stood, head hung, arms dangling at it’s sides. He was but two feet from it now. Looking into the holes where it’s eyes once were, he suddenly felt a shiver up his spine as he noticed it’s smile.

    Goodbye, Universe

    As the stars explode and paint the sky
    The only thing that matters is You and I
    We lay on our backs, resting our heads
    Too tired for sleep, no need for a bed
    I watch your eyes and think at first
    You’re so perfect You offset the universe
    I love You now and I will love You always
    This is what I think as the galaxy decays
    These a…[Read more]

  • Luke Renoe commented on the post, stem 7 years, 11 months ago

    I wrapped my fingers around the stem, this was a beautiful specimen and I knew you’d love it. I rose from my knees and extended the flower towards you. Taking it with both hands, careful not to harm it, I saw your eyes grow larger and illuminate your gorgeous face. Your smile lit up my […]

  • Luke Renoe commented on the post, crane 7 years, 11 months ago

    The bog was entirely empty, save one crane. He stood erect, surveying the world from one leg. The breeze displaced a few feathers on his wing. Soon he would return home to his nest, it had been an unsuccessful day of hunting.

  • Luke Renoe commented on the post, given 7 years, 11 months ago

    In the end it would seem he had given his best effort for the sake of saving the one person he thought would be worth his life. Little did he know his valiant efforts were lost at the feet of her unfaithfulness. He had died in vain.

  • Luke Renoe commented on the post, braid 7 years, 11 months ago

    She was braiding her hair in the bathroom, he had no idea what he said to upset her so. Sitting on the bed going over their conversation the night before, he couldn’t help but wonder if this was really working.

    I wade in dangerous waters
    Don’t let me pull this trigger
    Don’t let me paint these walls
    I don’t want to say this is your fault
    But it is
    I’ve never known love
    But this is as close as I’ve come
    It’s unrequited
    That’s the problem
    I’ll never have you
    Please don’t let me pull this trigger…

    After he crushed her skull he knew he had to hide the body. He began ripping up the kitchen floorboards that night.

    He saw a flash of brown fur, antlers peeked out from behind and oak. He steadied his rifle, “Say goodbye to starving,” he muttered.

    Though he failed to complete his life in as full a manner as he had hoped, the last few moments of his existence were carried out in such a fantastic way, with her by his side…
