Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com 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, BN.com is growing and changing. On May 1, we’re saying 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.

1st time poem

Have you had one of these days,

When you get your phone taken away

Your friends ignore you and turn their back

Everyone goes to your enemy

Your brother treats you like crap

And you can put that perfect smile on your face,

And NOBODY notices that something's wrong?

 

Well I'm sure you have

But my life is like a graph

It stays in the 4 quadrant

And it's always negative negative

It may go up but not to the positives

If only it would, just once

Then maybe my life would be a little better?

 

There is one person...

He doesn't sparkle

He doesn't even run fast

He may not be strong

He may not even be that smart

But he's there for me

To be my best friend or just by my side

 

 

 

 

I know it's no good. Just wanted to see what ya'll thought...

You always get your happy ending
If you're not happy...then it's not the end

Re: 1st time poem

Nah, you're just being modest! I think it's a very heart-warming first-time poem. And I just love how you used the whole "first-time poem" thing! My little sister wrote her first poem about three months ago and she gave it to me (it's tacked up on my wall) and guess what it was on? It was on why she loved me! Is that not adorable?

Re: 1st time poem

This is your first poem?? haha...for some reason i can't believe that. I loved it. I liked how it was very true and i have felt this way before so i know exactly what your talking about in your poem. I thought it was very creative of you to compare your life to a graph and how it goes up but not enough to go into the positives. I loved that entire stanza. Great Job!
