I see you in my dreams, standing alone on a hill. You turned to me and smiled; my heart melted, my love grew. Like a magnet, your smile drew me, pulled me to you with all the force of my love.
As I approach, you seemed to shimmer, your beautiful form seemed to fade as I grew near. At the top of the hill, I stopped, my heart racing. You were gone, the other half of my soul, vanished . I woke with a cry torn from my lips. It had been nothing but a dream.
“What is wrong?” you asked from beside me. “Nothing,” I answered with a smile as I pulled you into my arms. “Nothing.”
I'd love to! Can you tell me more about it? I'm scheduled to be published in an anthology that's coming out soon, with three of my poems featured in it. I can't remember what organization is publishing it, but I'll go find the forms for it soon. I believe it's Poetry.com, though. Leave me an offline message on the YIM if I'm not on, or hit me up when I get on. It's still email@example.com
Thank you, I'm flattered you think my works are good enough to be in your anthology. Hope to hear from you soon.
Ooooh sweetheart, lol... Poetry.com is a scam >.< I mean, your poems will be published, but it's basically a vanity pulication. The only way for your poem to actually be included is if you buy one of the books... and the only way to get one of the books is to have a poem in it. It was actually a discussion about Poetry.com that made me decide to organize an anthology, lol. Anywho, I made a board for the organization of it at moonpoetry.proboards79.com/index.cgi . Come take a look around.

Actually, I don't have to buy a book to have my poems published. Two of them have received their Editor's Choice Award, and those same two also are being considered for their upcoming CD called Sounds of Poetry. It's a 33 track CD with different poetry from all over included. I'll go check out this board of yours and see what you have. If you want, you can hit me up on the IM next time you're on and we can chat about it. Talk to you later!
