Hey, you can call me Sarah. To be completely honest, I never even knew this website existed until my wonderful boyfriend (on here he is EliMerriman) mentioned it. Both of us love writing, so we decided to challenge ourselves this year. Every sunday we are going to complete a poem and post it on here. We should end up with 52 poems each. Sounds like fun, no? Anyway, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Here is an updated list of my favorite challenge poems that I wrote. Actually, it is all of them just in order of best to worst so far... :P

1)Lion Cubs/Three Kids Playing a Game (6/52)
2)A Foreign Shard (7/52)
3)Irony of the Night
4)A Ring (2/52)
5)Coffee and Cadavers (5/52)
6)A Word of Advice To: (3/52)
7)Sea Monster in the Sky (4/52)
8)A Lenten Prayer (8/52)
9)Stinky Sam (1/52)

The running poll has come to an end. My readers have voted to change the name of Lion Cubs to Three Kids Playing a Game. Thanks for participating :)

Your Depression by nickyO reviews
Depression is painful for more than the person who is depressed. This is a poem about setting up boundaries and limits. It is not meant to be a blanket expression of everyone dealing with depression. It is about one relationship. Not meant to blame.
