        Hmm.. I haven’t been active on this for a while. I’ll try to write a poem about Autumn, though. Thanks, Ginger!

        Well. This is the last meeting I’ll be coming to, most likely, which is too bad, but I’m so glad that we have this place. So many, many thanks to Gingy and Leila <3
        I've been okay. Lots of ups and downs. But my teachers are looking like they'll be great, so that's nice.

        And the website is an awesome idea. Sorry I haven’t been very active, but I do have a few poems to post.

        AUTUMN

        The whisper of the wind,
        The crunch of the leaves,
        The stirring of the animals,
        The happiness in our hearts.

        My favourite thing about Autumn,
        Is the fresh breeze,
        And the crunchy leaves,
        The magical trees.

          beautifulsophie replied 5 days, 20 hours ago

          You should put that on the Google doc

        cocostar replied 5 days, 17 hours ago

        I wrote one a while ago, would that count?

          actually nvm it’s awful

          nothing is awful
          I c o m m a n d you, so now it’s official that you have to post it (did that come out a bit too demanding it was supposed to be a joke-)

          I am reminding you to comment

          effie replied 1 week, 1 day ago

          Thank you for the reminder, Coco. A slight bit late, though.
          It is impressive that you managed to find this. You are a very determined spoe.

          cocostar replied 5 days, 19 hours ago

          You’re welcome and sorry.
          Teehee yes I am.
          Not all that impressive, sadly:(

          How sad.
          You know what would be great?
          If you found the first ever post on this site.

          cocostar replied 2 days, 14 hours ago

          Lol I did Fia. A little while ago, but according to Cats it isn’t the first.

          effie replied 1 day, 15 hours ago

          Yeah, I know that now. You should find a post from . . . when book 2 came out. (And it can’t be from Soman or Jun’s activity.)

          cocostar replied 1 day, 10 hours ago

          Oohhh like a spoe challenge?
          1. Find a post from 9months 3weeks ago
          2. Find a post about fruit.

          effie replied 20 hours, 19 minutes ago

          Hmm . . . this is going to be difficult. The nine months three weeks ago is no big deal; I can just look through a few older users’ activities. But the fruit . . . hm. Does watery banana sun count?

          cocostar replied 11 hours, 34 minutes ago

          *cr* no it is about autumn

    I can hold my breath..be a good machine. Fake a smile and force a laugh- make other people happy. I guess, the truth is, most days I just want to sit alone in the dark.

        uraza169 replied 1 month ago

        Of course. Anytime. I’ll be here if you need anything.
        (Also, I actually found this while spoeing through the site-wide activity, although I do spoe through your activity as well occasionally)

          theginger replied 1 month ago

          I feel like no one ever tells you how empty depression makes you feel 24/7. It’s like trying to spark a fire on wet wood.
          (I just realized I’m allowed to call you Eliot..I don’t understand why I’ve been calling most everyone else by their first names, but I still use your user…welp I never did win any awards for being intelligent lol.)

        *Even more hugs* I’m so sorry, Ginger. I really wish there was more that I could do. If you ever need anything, tag me and I’ll be here to listen and hopefully give advice.

          Hey Thea…*I hug you back*
          It’s pretty exhausting, but my body is like: sleep? We’ve never heard of her.
          I know you’d take it all away, even bring it onto yourself, but unfortunately, we’ve all got our own weight to bear, and this happens to be part of mine. It’s hard to separate where each stressor comes from, and half the time I’m too tired to…[Read more]

          thecoven4ever replied 1 month ago

          That makes sense in a sucky way. You do therapy right? You could try and pinpoint your triggers with your therapist, although you might already be doing that. If you don’t go to therapy you should! It’s very helpful. Love you Lauren ❤️❤️❤️

          theginger replied 1 month ago

          I do, but sometimes they don’t work.

          theginger replied 1 month ago

          Also, since you were the last Poet of the Month, do you have any activities or closing Remarks you’d like to contribute?

          thecoven4ever replied 1 month ago

          Oh! Hmmm…
          Maybe just something like “love y’all stay safe!” XD idk

          theginger replied 1 month ago

          You can do whatever you want! I’m doing my part of the remarks on John Lewis, but you could do something fun!

          thecoven4ever replied 1 month ago

          I have no idea honestly. Maybe just the quote:
          “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
          I took the toad less traveled by
          And that has made all the difference”

        A VR sounds like it would be so much fun.

        My family is going camping twice, I have three online summer camps lined up, and my family and I are going to a smaller beach town for a few days in July.

          It’s great that your library is doing drive-through! Mine’s doing curbside pickup, so that definitely makes life a lot less boring.

          Yes, my real name isn’t Effie. Don’t judge.

          Effie is a great name! And yes, you can be tagged for the posts and participate in the activities. You can also create a slideshow with all your work, and I can put it on the doc so people can check it out ☺️. Thank you for wanting to participate!

          That’s totally okay :). So, as you know, we used to have School Master and Dean elections to decide the leadership of the site.

          Hey lily! I’d be happy to help you write a speech! You can take some inspiration from mine if you’d like (check my activity)

          Ofc I’m willing to help! I’d be down to look at yours if you wanted a second pair of eyes. For mine, I just made sure to talk a little bit about myself, how I started on the site, what I love about the site, what I’ve done for and on the site, and why I want to be on the council.

    Darkness is closing in,
    Silence drops like a pin.
    I ran away,
    Because I was scared to stay.
    Now I’m standing here,
    Alone with the pain that I fear.
    Escape I did try,

        Voices in your head say you aren’t enough.

        That you’ll never star in your story,
        You’re never going to be the warr-i-or.
        Mining through each day.
        Fighting to find a way you can be yourself.

          The ties that connected us fray away,
          Only pieces of driftwood floating, sinking.

          Overwhelming night smothers us.
          Broken fragments of truth are scattered
          All around us,
          Making paths which lead every which way.
          We try to ignore them.

        Never, but possibilities still rise.
        Can we break the molds around us?
        Perhaps, with time.
        Are we stuck forever trapped?
        Nothing is permanent, even when it never changes.

          We can’t leave
          We can look out,
          Seeing life just out of reach.
          Moving up towards the sky,
          A small glass box,
          Shaking, moving, no way out.
          People laugh, people taunt,
