Cafe Outlook

Welcome to The Poetry Cafe!

Have you ever found yourself lingering in the realm of dreams as you wake up and engage in the hustle 'n' bustle of everyday life? Find your mind wandering to a world that's full of fantasy and all things that, outside of your subconscious, are seemingly unimaginable? If you'd like to share your fantasy domain and give insight to your dreams, hopes and ambitions, then this is surely the home for you.

This should be a place for fellow deviants to come and share their poetry, get feedback and tips as well as get your work noticed by other writers and poetry lovers!

If you would like feedback on a specific work, please feel free to message to asking for feedback. We would be more then happy to aid you in your writing in anyway possible.

Down to Business

 I am not a Robot by BitterGreen 
Writing about robots is not a new subject but, as humans, we can't seem to get enough. Especially in a world where computers and machinery are involved

Love's Imprint
I still find myself bleeding over the wound you left me, three years later. Some days you are the dull in my fingertips, others you are my inability to look a man in the eye. But mostly, you are my constant distrust. My body no longer feels set ablaze passing by your house, or hearing your name. But my mind remains bruised, even with years to heal and countless short-lived remedies. I've tried the pills, pot, liquor, and even flimsy lovers, but my friends still manage to say they miss the old me. The me that you took away. And between trying to still recollect the shatters of my heart and mind, I can't seem to find her either. No one told me love would do this to me, no one managed to tell me what happens after. If I knew what I did now, I would of saved whatever remaining sanity I had and left.

Emotions are mixed in many ways
Thrown in the air and left for dead
Reach up and grab one why not
Get pricked by what you grab and drop it
I don’t know what I want to feel right now
I don’t know if it will hurt or feel good
I don’t want to feel the pain or hurt
I can’t take that feeling anymore
Give me something comforting
Make me feel the warmth and compassion
Not hurt and aggravation that doesn’t stop
Please not the numbness that I have moved from
I want to feel I do it is good
Just not this the not knowing
Knowing when I will be completed and happy
The fulfillment of my emotions and body
I have my entire life to feel
Please don’t make it be full of this feeling
I want to sleep peacefully at night
Not lay awake bogged with sadness and confusion
Take this hurt away and replace it
Fill me with a love and comfort
Replace this emptiness with your love
That I may feel complete in you

Hi this is Island-Romance. Sorry, Life has gotten to me and I have been in and out the hospital for awhile. I also go to school full time and have my daughter.

Armymanski is currently out of commission for awhile...A long while. I am trying to get his password and everything so i can long onto his site and update this and put in more folders and stuff. As a co-owner I have no control over anything except for accepting members and some commissions.

I HAVE NOT been deleting people or commissions. I swear to you. I have noticed that Deviant has been taking out poems out the group and deleting members. I never touch any of that. I have deleted one member for trolling a lot of us and that is because I had several emails about that person.

Other then that I am personally sorry that I have left you guys to run yourselves. I would like to find someone who is on deviant art more to help run the group. If you are interested. Email me and tell me why you would be best.


Thanks everyone and keep up with all your writings and stories.

Love you all

To all of the contemporary, free verse poets, I wondered if one or more of you might consider a poetic collaboration with me. 
I want to combine classical and contemporary poetry in one. 
We would pick a topic or theme and one of us would write a couple of lines in our style and send it to the other to do the same. 
We'll go back and forth until the poem is completed. 
Anybody interested?

Why can't you submit more than one deviation anymore?
Island-Romance Featured By Owner May 6, 2017  Student Artist
Truthfully, I have no idea. I just ended classes and came back to check things out. When I get ahold of armymanski I will see how to fix this. I have limited power over this. I need to get his passwords for stuff.
ShalimarAOrion Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2017   Writer
Thought I had it figured out. It said you could post every 7 days. I literally set an alarm on my phone and still I can't post a week later. Sigh.
Island-Romance Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2017  Student Artist
Technically, You should be able to post every day...or even every couple of hours. As far as I know the actual site of the group is running fine. It could be a setting on your page. I would email deviant art and ask since this is an on going issue.
