    LOL! I had to read this again... you're still a despicable coaled soul, and I love you that way. ;))

    I meant collab. Btw, that's nice that you're not feeling the Vomiticus hate right now. Glad to know you are in a happy mood :). As for rehashing the same old stuff, hmm who knows? Maybe by doing so you can eventually come up with new things? Btw, no need to reply there but I wonder if you got my short story reply in poetry battle? Haha :p. Maybe that gave out on me too. I can't seem to load it right now.

    Ok that lasted all of 5 minutes or something. Haha. This is a belly interesting twist to the fairy tale. I really enjoyed this & I find "Coal Black" to be quite intriguing vs Snow White's character--touches on sad and also a bit disturbing. And those dwarves-ooh~! Makes me think of how truly morbid fairy tales really are. Btw thanks for passing by my collan with David. That was a different experience for me since he gave me all of his lines in one go & I had to "fill in the lines" so to speak. Will comment on your other poem next time.

    oh kiss me! you despicably foul diabolical creature, I am your blackest night indeed, let me lick of your torment stench and greed for the soul...it's me shorty, return of the coald;

    Wow Chris, you really know how to stir the pot but my stomach isn't ready to sup the brew. Wild images come to mind and that's what a great verse is supposed to do! Wow! Luv, Lizzie

    Regarding my last tanka... It's a "contemporary" tanka! LOL! I think that the repetition brings emphasis and...the 3 syllables that I was needing! : )

    How can I love this poem? I dont know...but I do....It might be the strong emotion you transmit...or the vivid imagery...or the mocking-sarcastic language intended to convey scorn or vile...I dont know! Do I need help? : ) Great work, Chris! Ruben.

    Sad poem, Chris...great imagery and metaphoric language. Not hard to see the truths in here. Lines 2 - 5 -- Whoa! Scary! Also enjoyed how you twisted the fairytale...If there is one thing I'd like to still believe in it would be that good will eventually triumph. But even good and evil seem to have taken a good twisting...Can't wait to read about your ponies and rainbows etc....I am finding it really hard to write those pretty ones at this point in time.

    Oh, Chris, this one reminds me of the blog you recently posted. It is so sad, and I see the perspective you are coming from here, why not try one from the other perspective. Would it be filled with rage? hmmm. Enjoyed your poem. Hugs, Catie :)

    I only meant that I knew you could do an awesome job from either perspective. I wasn't expecting hearts and flowers. :) Hugs, Catie

    Rage isn't the operative emotion here, Catie. Don't worry, I will write a poem about bullfrogs, butterflies, ponies and rainbows. I can barely wait.
