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.

I am real hope...(poem)

I wrote this today and i want to know if it makes sense to all of you. I am really unsure about it and i don't know if it is clear. I am trying a new thing and really need your opinions. Thanks.

 

My feeble hands beat holes

in the walls of my heart.

With my head bent down

I let my tears dry.

I couldn’t see my destiny

through this false hope.

But I looked up for an answer.

And yet, nothing came to save me.

Noting my misfortune

I took my leave.

The world would be better

 without a lost soul like me. 

I now live in the hearts

Of every person’s soul.

I breathe life

into their tears and dreams.

I give them hope

that I never had

because others could benefit

from what I witnessed.

When the sky betrays you

I come to rescue you.

I take your hand

And fill your hearts with hope.

To you I may only be a dream

but I am real and obtainable.

Re: I am real hope...(poem)

I just love your writing- it always makes sense to me! I am always worried people won't understand my writing too. It just sort of kicks and screams inside- and I have this weird sense in my hand that it wants to type or write something magical... At least to me it is! Hahaha. Well I really enjoyed your poem. The sense of feeling- it really sruck me. My favorite part was-"

To you I may only be a dream

but I am real and obtainable."

 

 

Really loved it! Please write more:smileywink:

Sincerely Yours,
Penn
