Written by JABlake in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Mother Knows Best

My skin caught on fire as the sound of my name rolled off your tongue, left your lips, and engulfed my heart with the entirety of your existence. 

Because dammit, that was the effect you had on me.

I looked into your eyes but you stared back into my soul. I held your hand but you had me wrapped around your finger. I inhaled the scent of your smoke and it was addictive. You burnt my tongue as it touched yours. You singed me as you traced me with your fingers. I loved the pain.

Mother always told me not to play with fire,

So why did I let you turn me into ashes?

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe.' This is a piece taken from Lewis Carol's "Jabberwocky", one of my favorite poems of all time. Even though the poem is written in gibberish, with words from Carol's own imagination, it still manages to convey meaning and capture a strong tone. Poems don't have to make sense to be enjoyable. Write your own poem in gibberish, but try to capture a certain tone, funny, solemn, urgent, mysterious. If it has a rhythm or meter, all the better. But most importantly, have fun! 100 coins to the winner.

Walking in the Streets

Have you ever been out walking in the streets?

No one else beside you just the pavement and your feet.

Where did you go, what did you think,

Were you afraid that you would sink?

Have you ever been out walking in the streets?

Restless

No sleep for me,

At least not tonight.

Eyes wide open,

Until I see the sunlight.

No sleep for me,

It's messing with my brain.

Making me cranky,

With a lot of head pain.

No sleep for me,

At least not tonight.

New Market study on the Global E-Cigarette Market 2017-2021

MarketReportsOnline.com adds "Global E-Cigarette Market: Industry Analysis & Outlook (2017-2021)" report to its research store.

E-Cigarettes have potential risks and benefits, but it has significantly shifted people from conventional tobacco smoking to E-Cigarette smoking. E-Cigarette is an innovation aimed at replacing traditional cigarette smoking. It comes in varied options like disposables, cig-a-like, e-cigars, vape modes, modular and many more.

Complete report available at http://www.marketreportsonline.com/632455.html.

Company Coverage of E-Cigarette Market: Japan Tobacco Inc., Reynolds American Inc., Altria Group Inc. & Imperial Tobacco Group PLC

E-Cigarettes just like tobacco smoking produces vapor that resembles cigarette smoke. These E-Cigarettes contain nicotine in various levels according to the type of E-Cigarette. There are currently more than 4,000 flavors available with different nicotine level. The primary parts that make up an E-cigarette are a mouthpiece, a cartridge (tank), a heating element/atomizer, a microprocessor, a battery, and possibly a LED light on the end.

UK is among the fastest growing regions of Europe with many upcoming small retailors and vendors, providing innovative & cost effective E-cigarettes. The US will see tight FDA regulation being put on E-Cigarette manufactures, thereby creating a challenging environment. The key factors driving the growth of the global E-Cigarette market include new product launches, increase in net average selling price, mounting prices of tobacco cigarettes, and growing youth population.

The report offers an in-depth analysis of the “E-Cigarette Market”. Competition is largely between the topmost tobacco companies. The report covers both regional and global aspect of the market with key underlying trends and challenges. The E-cigarette companies that have been covered in the report include Imperial Tobacco Group PLC, Altria Group Inc., Japan Tobacco Inc., and Reynolds American Inc.

Talk someone out of suicide
Written by JABlake

I Promise

I can't promise you that your life will get better.

I can't promise you that this pain will go away.

I can't promise you that tomorrow will be better than today or yesterday or any other day. Heck, I can't even promise you that tomorrow will come.

But really, what choice do we have?

You were born into this world

Beautiful.

Unique.

Alive.

You've dragged yourself along these days, your eyes full of tears and your heart in pieces.

You feel a weight pressing down on your shoulders and it's starting to wring around your neck.

Your room's a mess.

Your hair's a mess.

Your life's a mess.

Your mind's a mess.

You're a mess.

But you know what?

You weren't brought into this world, this masterpiece, out of the love of God and your parents or the lust of a man and woman for you to decide when it's your time.

No child is a mistake,

And my dear,

Your life does not belong to this world for you to give into it.

Your life is a life full of love.

You speak out against abortion and murder.

You protest in the streets against the killing of the innocent.

Why be a hypocrite? Why prove yourself wrong? Why take the life you were given for granted?

There are mothers who crave to nurse the child whom she never birthed.

There are people who long to see their loved one who died from illness.

But here you are, born healthy and strong. Born under no wrong circumstances.

For nothing happens out of chance.

Why can't you believe us when we say

That you are not alone.

There are people who don't know you, and yet long to meet you. They just don't know it yet.

You were given only one face in this lifetime.

One body and soul.

You are perfect in your most imperfect ways, because you are you.

I can't promise you that it'll be alright because only you can make that choice.

But I can promise you this:

If you set down that rope, blade, gun, those pills, or step back from the edge

And open your eyes, my love, to the wonder that surrounds you,

You will not regret it.

Because life only goes forward. You can't allow yourself to be stuck in the past. Don't be stuck in the present. Don't be selfish. If you can't do it for yourself, do it for the people you love. Maybe then you'll learn to love it yourself. Accept whatever life you were given And 

Breathe

And

Live.

I promise you

That you won't solve anything if you take away your life.

I promise you

That you are never alone.

I promise you

That you are loved.

My First Love

When I close my eyes, a mix of blues, teals, and grays comes to mind. Fresh air and pristine clear creeks. I see myself as a child looking down to my feet, making sure my footing is secure with each step I take forward across the river. I’m in a canoe, hands gripping the paddle as we move to the end of the lake and into the lily pads. I’m waist deep in the murky ocean water, bracing myself against the waves, looking across the inlet to the volcano silhouettes and a sun that doesn’t set. I’m standing on the bank, staring hard into the muddy water, watching for movement. I’m following closely, weary of the bear and her three cubs. My hands are throwing line out, casting into the water, tying knots, never empty. The fish are brilliant, fresh, huge. I catch first the trout, a vibrant display of all the colors in the rainbow. Salmon are next. Red, silver, green scales flash in the sunlight. Chinook are the start of summer, followed by sockeye, then coho. Each return to the river, spawn, and die, every year at the same time and place, and every year, at the same time and place, I remember my first love.

Each return to the river, spawn, and die, every year at the same time and place, and every year, at the same time and place, I remember my first love.

Talk someone out of suicide
Written by TaiSensei

Take it From a Living One

Close your eyes, take a deep breath and listen to me for a sec, please. 

I know things seem hard right now, I know life feels like hell, and I know you've probably heard it all before, but I can promise you, with a 110% guarentee, that things will get better. It might feel like you've been dragging your feet through a never ending storm, it may feel like no one is there for you, but keep fighting, don't ever lose hope, because the harder you fall, the stronger you become when you stand up. There are countless super heroes, celebrities, and wealthy, happy people who would tell you the same thing. 

Whatever it is you are suffering, whatever you are running from, I won't ask you to face it head on. In fact, keep running if you have to, but use a track not a treadmill; find a path, not a dead-end. I want you to use this next shot at life whether it be your second or sixtieth, to cope with your hardships in another way. You don't have to deal with the problem, just find an outlet for your emotions, find a temporary solution until you gain the strength to fight this depression. Video games, books, an addicting TV series, a friend, whatever it takes to make you want to wake up tomorrow, find it and take it.

Every book has a depressing chapter, every movie has a sad scene, but those moments aren't the end, they're usually the moments just before the good part. Believe in the possibility that tomorrow holds your story's good part.
