  • Giant Butterfly – Nanotist
    This was the winning poem for our Poetry Challenge about Fear. This is a poem that uses something so beautiful as a butterfly to describe fear. Well-written and a classic, timeless poem.
  • Dream Children – The Sunday Poet
    Amazing words, that flow constantly. This poetess takes you on a beautiful journey with her words. Who cannot love those words: Let’s marry summer?
  • KABOOM! – Qatrina Quaff
    Short circuit(ing) made into art; into poetry! An amazing poem.
  • It always feels the same – Francesca Alexandra
    Heartbreak comes in different forms. Poetry about these nasty breakups comes in various forms too. Not all are so well written as this one by Francesca.
  • Broken Hearts | Heal – Wordsponge
    Speaking of those broken hearts. Wordsponge has but one message for us, in her beautiful written poem: they can heal, those broken hearts. A beautifully written poem, that gives hope!
  • Crusade – Brianna Crinite
    This poem fits right in when it comes to the #metoo-discussion. A strong protest about the way some women are treated. Well-written by Brianna.
  • Stone Bench – Amanda N. Butler
    Remember those childhood memories? Those memories of places where you played? Amanda remembers them vividly and penned them down in this magnificent poem!

    This poem was written for our Poetry Challenge about Fear. A magnificent poem, that gives you the creeps!
  • Relationship: Mother Earth – T.A.K. Erzinger
    This poem talks about what we do wrong when it comes to our planet. A mirror for those who need it!
