I do not believe in valentines day. I never have and I never will. Today will be filled with social media posts all about it. Entertain me and write a poam or promt about why you dont celebrate valentines day.
Written by forsakenthreads in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Why not celebrate? Let me count the ways.

We've been married for a very long time.

I don't need prompting to buy roses and wine.

He claims to forget, but I think it's design.

"I don't really like you. I'll have to decline."

Why should I do anything? We've just met online.

The day has origins that are neither cute or divine.

Capitalist pigs exploit it for the bottom line.

"I'll make thee mine, if I can be thine."

"Cut the crap, you sap, I'd rather take strychnine."

She never likes what I get, and I can't stand the whine.

Think for yourself, screw peer pressure, and get a spine.

Whatever you do, please, please, don't be my Valentine.

There's just something about Nothing...
Written by forsakenthreads in portal Philosophy

There's just something about Nothing...

Confront Nothing to accept your smallness -

     strand yourself in the vastness of a sea.

Examine Nothing to recognize your hugeness -

     inspect the spaces inside the cells of a flea.

See Nothing to embrace your vulnerability -

     hold the stare of a pariah who seeks acknowledgement.

Feel Nothing to wield your durability -

     look away, sure that you'll suffer no such impoverishment.

Let Nothing in to prove your fortitude -

     sympathy is a weakness that betrays your power.

Let Nothing out to conceal your attitude -

     a poker face is better than a grin or a glower.

Say Nothing to differentiate the laughable -

     empty words inspire those without sense or intellect.

Mean Nothing to punish the gullible -

     empty promises won't harm the cynical and circumspect.

Know Nothing to save you from the pain -

     insight and awareness are the two edges of a sword.

Claim Nothing to free you from the chain -

     compunction and guilt bind you tightly as a cord.

There's just something about Nothing -

     it humbles, it elevates, it covers and exposes.

Is there anything at all about Nothing? -

     it destroys, it enlivens, it builds up and decomposes.

What is your pen name and why? @CreativeChaos and I were discussing our reasons and i figured why not ask everybody! What makes you your name or your name you? Tag me if you would like a read ^-^
Written by forsakenthreads in portal Nonfiction

Forsaken Threads

things, set aside and forgotten

ideas, unused and unfulfilled

people, lost and forlorn

emotions, repressed and held close

slender threads that attach dim pasts with hopeless futures

I resolve to tug at these threads and release them from their prisons.

That's what I have to say about why I like my pen name, but that's only part of the story.  My avatar is a clue to my favorite work of fiction and my favorite author.  My pen name is an anagram of the former.  Comment if you know. ;-)

Syntax, logic, control statements, variables, and abstraction -

Written by forsakenthreads in portal Poetry & Free Verse

An Inference from Observations

electrons spin

atoms vibrate

hearts beat

lungs breathe

pendulums swing

clocks tick

the physics of time is just a trick

inorganic matter

changing state

living creatures

burning fuel

human artifice

measuring caprice

time's an illusion that fails to cease

cause, effect

first, last

extant, extinct

birth, death

seconds, minutes

decades, centuries

these are but echos, collective memories

Write the most meaningful, emotional thing you can think of in 30 words.
Written by forsakenthreads in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Why do I try to do the right thing?

Not for fairness, not for God, not for country, not for family.  I refuse to be the reason someone else loses their faith in humanity.  I can't shoulder that burden.

Write a pair of haikus, one describing how each lover feels for the other.
Written by forsakenthreads in portal Haiku

The Introvert and the Extrovert

Sly glances unseen,

love unspoken, touch held back.

What curse this cold mien!

-----

Begging to connect,

wanting reciprocity,

but love known not felt.

Childhood Memory. Write about something (material, preferrably) that meant a lot to you as a child. Tag me!@poeticasymptote
Written by forsakenthreads

Old School Laptop

I don't recall, but I've been told,

that I would carry this all about,

bugging anyone I could find

to spell out words and help me out.

A shy little boy in love with words;

I smile when I sense him in me.

Others played with building blocks,

but my toys of choice were A-B-C.

Write a piece either poetry or prose, where each word starts with the next letter of the alphabet
Written by forsakenthreads

Alphabetosis - unwittingly speaking in alphabetic ascension

Q: Oh, please! Quit rubbing scars.

V: Bah! Careful, dude! Easy for --

Q: Totally unbelievable, Vivian. Why --

V: (angry now) Goto hell! I just know love means nothing.

Q: Xavier, you --

X: Not our problem, Quinton. Relax.

V: Ouch. Pretty quick rejection.

Q: (shaking head) Zero affection, bro.

X: Sometimes toughness upholds vitality.

V: (mimicking stoicism) "Sometimes toughness upholds vitality". What, Xavier?

Q: Cruelty doesn't elicit feeling good.

X: When x'ing your zealous affections, bearing cold, devoid emotions fosters greater health.

V: Zombies are better consolers.  (aside) Does either friend get how I just keep losing? Men!
