New Waters

Always wanted to see (once more,
for the first time)
the Place where this River
once met the Ocean.
When a slippery wet kiss
swam upstream,
(no thoughts.
A tongue on a cheek)
Jump to before:
suspense on a dead spindle.
                         A stale bird lands on new waters.
Jump to then:
a finale with a pledge.
                         These waves will break you.

Very nice.
 — unknown

I like this.
 — unknown

I feel like there's more to this poem, another part of the story that hasn't been shown here.
 — unknown

alibis are water tight
 — unknown

Not bad at all, I wish it would have more fleshing out of the story! Maybe its just me though!
 — Memo213

It isn't just you; I think we all feel that way. But it's a great poem nonetheless.
 — ishtarboy300

Nice poem.  I like how you bounce to and fro in lines 9-14.  You could probably do without your footnote though.  :)
 — JKWeb

Did so, JKWeb. Thanks for the input ^_^
 — laura352

This is certainly a great poem. Everybody can take lessons from you.
 — unknown

Thank you, "unknown". Though, it would be nicer if you wouldn't post as unknown...=/

Anyhow, thanks for the comment. It was very nice :)
 — laura352

Bravo!  Awesome!  :-)
 — starr

Thank ya, starr =D
 — laura352

Great last line.
And if these dont break you,
the other ones will.
Take care Laura 17.
 — Empty

XD My poem is on the Top Rated list. Maybe this is juvenile but it kind of makes me ecstatic ^_^

Thanks for all the comments, Empty. :) They mean a lot.
 — laura352

nice dreamy aquatic ride... did I read you're only 17?  You're way ahead of the game.  Keep reading and writing... you're very talented.
 — jpmhawk

Awh, thank you jpmhawk! That's a really nice thing for you to say.

And yeah you read correctly XD
 — laura352

lines nine and twelve are references to invisible monsters
 — unknown

Give me envy.
Give me malice.
Give me your attention.

 — laura352

It isn't too often that you find one so young that writes like a wise old sage.
 — PaulS

Haha PaulS I am a clumsy form of a girl. Not wise.

But it's nice to think that you see wisdom in my writing.

Thanks for the comment it was really nice.
 — laura352

Interesting write, surreal enough to take it out of the overly personal. Good form and use of language.
 — jharrison

Nice Invisible Monsters reference :)

I'm not a huge fan of this just out of personal taste, but I see how it can work for others.  Keep it up
 — aurelius

"surreal enough to take it out of the overly personal" exactly what I was going for, jharrison.

Thanks for the comment, aurelius.
 — laura352

I love the last line- I always look forward to great endings...not great as in it must "feel good" but great as in it completes the poem.
This is excellent~
 — mandolyn

Thanks for the positive feedback, mandolyn! ^_^

I, too, enjoy a great ending.
 — laura352

Pretty good. I believed at first that it would play into more of the literal concept of water and bodies of water however I like the move into comparing a kiss to delta.

Don't think that the period in eight is necessary. Wow. I'm getting rusty if that's the best suggestion I can come up with.
 — Callisto

Haha thanks for the suggestion, Callisto. I went with your advice.
 — laura352

yo, laura, you're in high school. me too! i'm a senior. lol
 — Sequiturist

I'm a Senior also. I turn 18 Friday, actually! XD *excitement*
 — laura352

^ haha, very very nice. i turned 17 not too long ago. i think i will refrain from asking you the question that every senior in america wants to ask another senior. ;)
 — Sequiturist

Haha yeah do because I don't wanna talk about THAT situation =/
 — laura352

its good- but seems to want to keep the reader at a distance. almost detrimentally so.
 — DeformedLion

^ That seems to be a habit of mine.
 — laura352


sorry i'm late for class.
i've always been a retarded tardy bloke in school.

this is good like recess.

; )
 — fractalcore

Thanks for the look and comment fractalcore.

I'm a HUGE fan of yours XD

red sole shoes and sex-related. They are the luxury of pornography and feminine but not vulgar. They represent the proud

independence. You can kill a man (of course, metaphor) - pair of christian louboutin shoes suitable spike straight to the brain.

Even the word "small", it sounds very sexy. The red bottom shoes is not created by the most practical invention. So, why do we

wear?Very simple, they made us even more sexy. They give us confidence in our own sexuality.

  When asked why the red (cheap christian louboutin) never fail fascinated women of all ages the reason, you can come back to the

endless reasons. First of all, an eye eye-catching red sole shoes can be added to the final women sexy charm and passion, the same

lips, sexy woman signature makeup style of women. Once you wear a pair of perfect red (discount christian louboutin), no man can

resist the attraction anytime, anywhere. Red high heels (red bottom shoes) is the choice for all women.
