    Tattoos and Piercings

    I have two piercings in each ear, a tongue ring, and 5 tattoos. I used to have my nose and belly button pierced but because I couldn't change them out, I had to let the holes close up (long story). I do plan on getting my nose re-pierced. I got my first tattoo when I was barely 18. I don't...

    I am looking for this book I read in high school english

    I don't remember the name or the author (of course, cause otherwise I wouldn't need help, right? lol) but I remember the story. It's about an african american woman who was kind of an outcast in her town because she was light skinned. She ends up marrying an older rich man, who abuses her (I...

    Books like Catcher in the Rye

    "The Perks of Being A Wallflower" has often been compared to it. Before anyone freaks out over that - I don't agree. It gets a lot of flack because of that and because it was an MTV book and whatnot, but in my opinion it is a good book. And I recommend it to anyone and everyone. :flowers:

    Favourite Poems

    That's a great one, too. I can't say that I dislike any poetry of Dorothy Parker, honestly. lol Not So Deep As A Well Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song, A medley of extemporanea; And love is a thing that can never go wrong; And I am Marie of Romania.

    Elizabeth Kostova: The Historian

    It has a slow beginning and a somewhat unsatisfying ending, but overall I really enjoyed it. However, I do agree that it may have been overhyped a bit.

    Shocking poems & short stories

    "Richard Cory" is the first to come to my mind too, as far as classical lit goes. As for modern, there is a poem in the book "The Perks of Being A Wallflower" by Stephan Chbosky.

    Favourite Poems

    I see that you are reading Dorthy Parker. I love Dorothy Parker. My favorite by her is Interior. Her mind lives in a quiet room, A narrow room, and tall, With pretty lamps to quench the gloom And mottoes on the wall. There all the things are waxen neat, And set in decorous lines, And...

    Glad to be here

    Hmmm... My #1 favorite? That's a hard one. Gerald's Game really stuck in my mind, if you know what I mean. I also really enjoyed The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, Desperation, The Graveyard Shift and The Tommyknockers. Okay, The Tommyknockers might win. Even though it has been FOREVER since I...

    Favourite Poems

    Here's 2 more of my favorites. Insomnia by Elizabeth Bishop The moon in the bureau mirror looks out a million miles (and perhaps with pride, at herself, but she never, never smiles) far and away beyond sleep, or perhaps she's a daytime sleeper. By the Universe deserted, she'd...

    Post a poem

    What lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why, I have forgotten, and what arms have lain Under my head till morning; but the rain Is full of ghosts tonight, that tap and sigh Upon the glass and listen for reply, And in my heart there stirs a quiet pain For...

    Favourite Poems

    I don't think I have one ultimate favorite, but one of my all time favorites is "Patterns" by Amy Lowell. I usually prefer shorter poems, but this and "If" by Rudyard Kipling are exceptions. I walk down the garden paths, And all the daffodils Are blowing, and the bright blue squills. I...
