Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Now that you're gone

Whew! This is my latest poem. :smileyvery-happy: Date written:smileysurprised:ct. 15, 2009


" Now that you're gone"


You are my happiness.

You are my world.

You're the air I breathe--

without you I can't live.

You are my light.

You make my world so right.

I know nothing 'till you came,

and behold, I'm not the same.

I realized I can't live without you.

Before, this thing I never knew.

You gave me the right door.

Wonder how I lived before?

You are my happiness.

You're the only one I love.

You took me out of sadness,

and once I felt I was loved.

But suddenly you left,

leaving me trapped in your net.

You said not a single word,

just leaving me in this dark world.

It's a vey lovely feeling--

to know that on someone I can depend.

It's a vet lovely feeling.

Why does it have to end?

And what can I do now?

Now that you're gone?

How to live? please tell me how.

'Cause without you, my life would be done.

What should I do?

Should I leave too?

But how can I leave?

I'm trapped and I'm too weak.

What should I seek?

Of the darkness, I'm so tired and sick.

Who will help me?

Who would set me free?

Who will show me the light?

And make my world bright?

All these questions was left unanswered.

Through all these, I guess I learned.

I learned not to trust everybody.

'Cause I could be deceived by anybody.

To whom shall I trust?

I don't know.

So I knelt to the dust,

'Cause I felt I was thrown.
