I do not know.  I ... uh ... it's been a while since I wrote poetry, and even longer since I posted it.  I swore, however, that I'd post all of my attempts at my 100 Theme Challenge so here's my latest. I have done minimal editing, though I may attack it later. Thoughts and critiques are, as always, welcome.  

Previous Challenge: 
BeginningsWhere to begin…
That question is more difficult than most listeners give it credit for.  After all, some beginnings happen at the end of something.  A birth occurs at the end of a pregnancy, a new year lands precisely the second following the end of the old year, and a day starts when the previous one ends.  Beginnings, however, are not required to wait for an ending.  They can happen in the middle of something, as well.  Lovers could meet in the middle of their lives when nothing in particular is going on that might warn them.  A new minute happens every sixty seconds at the beginning and the middle and the end of every single day.  A new story may begin wherever it likes, and whenever fate slips something interesting between the pages of a life.  
The thing about beginnings is that they happen to everyone and everything many times during an existence.  From the conception of that first breath, life happens.  From the very moment

Next Challenge: 
WoodsWhispers fill the air around you, the night bleeding into every corner you keep trying to light with your torch.  The hair on the back of your neck stands, prickling at your nerves and pushing your reflexes to jerk the torch around in uneven circles.  Is there someone there?  Is there something watching?  The shadows creep closer, slithering silently into the corners of your eyes and causing menacing ghouls to appear.  When you turn your light on them, however, they disappear like wisps of smoke in the wind.  
Where are you?  How long have you been walking?  Are you lost?  You must be because you don't recognize this path.  The trees are closing in on you, their roots having already devoured the path you'd once been following.  You swing your torch to your left.  Maybe home is that way or... that way?  You swing it even further around, squinting into the darkness beyond.  All you can see are the crooked forms of hang

*Update* 
Wow, a DD.  I'm honored!  Thanks to :iconinknalcohol: for the feature, and to everyone who has stopped by to read.  May you all have the loveliest of days!  ^-^

Very nice. Probably not the right place to ask, but how do you put text in italics?
Reply
:icontrifle-observation:
trifle-observation Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2013  Student Writer
Thanks.

For italics, and every other type of special text, you use an html code.  Italics is - < i > without the spaces, obviously.  And don't forget to close the code when you're done -  </ i>

You put <i>and then write whatever you want before closing it off with</i>. (Ignore the bold, just so I could show you what it looks like without 'activating' it. Bold is a 'b' instead of 'i'.) Hope that helps!
