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. 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.

Feedback please...

When nightime falls and candles burn
And you're not here, I start to yearn
For your arms, tight around my waist
On my lips, yours are gently placed
To drink me in, I close my eyes
I feel your hand, I hear your sighs
You whisper softly in my ear
Sleep well, my love, wish you were here

First of all, I'm glad to see some poetry being posted. I'm a big fan of poetry. :smileyhappy:
I think this poem is pretty good. It has a good rhythm, a good subject, and your rhymes work well. "To drink me in" is bordering on cliche, but other than that, I think it's quite good. Keep it up! The first and last lines are my favorite. :smileyhappy:

Re: Feedback please...

Thanks! I agree about the cliche phrase, it just seemed to fit how I felt and fell into place there. I couldn't come up with anything better.
