       Not all poetry is angsty style stuff. Sometimes I'm happy. Let me know what you think

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    I look at the world
    And at life
    And I see nothing
    But startling, blinding beauty
    In laser-cut
    Diamond-edged clarity

    Nothing could tame
    My elated spirit

    I see joy in all
    I see
    I have found freedom
    From all that held me
    To the ground

    I try to communicate
    My feeling
    But fail

    None of these words
    And none
    In any tongue suffice
    To say what I wish to

    I take all the happiness
    Of my life
    Multiply it infinitely
    Condense it into one moment
    And there is no comparison
    With my current state of joy

    I look directly at the sun
    And unrestrained and certain
    I scream
    "I am immortal"

      SMILE! This is one of the first times i've read something on here that did not rhyme, but i thought flowed really well, and that i liked...thinking about adding it to favs...

      Love it! It flows well despite the structure, so kudos. love the first stanza thingy of this poem, it kinda throws you for a loop because of the first three lines indicating some sort of sad poem, but the fourth line changes the feel entirely. all in all, its a very good read!

      first i would like to say that i felt the words were very strong. this piece has that ability to captiviate people who have never read poetry. personally i enjoyed reading it and im sure others will. on another note, im a stickler for rhyme thats the only thing i felt it kinda lacked but dont think that the lack of rhyming took away from the power of the words. this is just a personal feedback. really nice work!

      I love the way your poem builds to it's climax. I do have a problem though with the way you discribe life as a "diamond" but I can understand why, because "diamond's are a girls best friend" right?

      great piece. definitely a feeling that most in your age group can relate to. the feeling of immortality, unfortunately, will pass-enjoy it while you can. I love how you describe seeing beauty all around you; too many people are unable to do this, and that's a very sad thing. There's a lot of power here and a lot of emotion. Once again, great write, keep it up.

      So powerful a read. I also liked the way it sounded when I read it aloud. I did the shouting as was proper. What a wonderful feeling if we could all look around and see the beauty in our lives each day.

      this poem reminds me of a vampire tale, I love it. I especially love the part "And I see nothing
    But startling, blinding beauty In laser-cut
    Diamond-edged clarity"
    It kind of reminds me of Lestat's view upon the world. Keep me posted on future writtings.
