Welcome to the AnimeFuel Community Forums, I'm the owner of this website Demon fox and lucky for you I'm not here to use my ninja skills on yah, plenty of time for that later I assure you. Instead I'll be telling you a little about this place.
As you should be able to tell by now you are not registered with us as of yet and probably need a good reason to do so. Between you and I we both know you're a lazy bastard and so if you don't even want to listen to the rest of my introduction speech you may as well just go register.
Otherwise here's what you can do on our forums once you've registered. When you register you will be able to chit chat in our forums, entertain yourself with games and share videos with other members. The forums allows you to get access to free downloads shared by members, fast and direct support with video problems from members and staff and make anime requests which are priortized above anyone else's.
There are many more things you can do but our aim is to bring together a community of video fans where you can feel comfortable and make lots of friends around the world. God knows you need them.
So get your butt over to the registration page and join my I mean OUR community. Oh and one more thing watch out for a crazy guy with a gun he's wandering around somewhere in these pages and you'll probably see him if you become really slack with the forum.
This message will self destruct once registration is completed.

I Want To (Redone )
(Okay, so I Took one of my poems and added more to it. So I wanted to just share with all of you guys. :3 I really hope you like it. The added text will be in a different color)
I want to spend nights under stars with him.
Lie on the couch and watch lame movies
only to fall asleep in each others arms half way though.
I want to sleep the day and night away
in his arms, as he holds me.
I want to hear him say "I love you"
knowing I can say it too.
I want to to see his smiling face each morning.
and kiss me as I wake
I want to cry on his shoulder
only to have him wrap his arms around my waist.
I want to make him feel like the most important person in this world
Be the one he kisess
Be the first thing he sees each morning
the last thing he sees before falling asleep
the one in his dreams.
I want to dance in the rain with him,
Dance in puddles, Dance in droplets,
Laughing and smiling,
and then, cuddle up in the blankets to dry off.
I want to make him smile, for he makes me smile each day.
Take him to be my one and only
and cherish him day by day.
I love him and that love grows with each passing day.
no ok no
There isn't much wrong with this piece, Aki, and I'm glad you added what you did. This poem would be a lot weaker without that "dancing in the rain" image, because most of the other images aren't nearly as interesting or have been re-used too often in poetry.
The poem's main problem is wordiness. Well, wordiness and redundancy. For example, take "in his arms, as he holds me" or "I want to cry on his shoulder/only to have him wrap..." The first is of course a case of redundancy...you're stating the same thing twice. It disrupts the nice, even flow of things and it's unnecessary. The second set of lines I quoted is a case of stating the obvious and wordiness. When you cry on someone's shoulder, them wrapping their arms around you is an image our minds can fill in on their own. You don't need to tell us...crying on a shoulder implies it in itself. Ending that stanza with the simple "I want to cry on his shoulder" is a much more powerful statement, and it's short and sweet.
So, taking all those sorts of things (in addition to other preferences of mine) into account, here's how I personally feel the poem would look, greatly improved:
Remember, I'm not telling you how to write your own poem, I'm just giving you possible suggestions on tightening it up into a solid, totally done piece, and shaking out all that unnecessary wordiness.
My philosophy of poetry: never tell more than you need to. Your reader's mind should be allowed to roam a bit...to fill in the sweet images with his or her own extra bit of sugar. So don't worry over getting those redundant and wordy details in. Less is more.
You're improving, Aki. When I first read your poetry on this site, it wasn't nearly as interesting, as palpable, or as real. Be honest to yourself and to your readers, and you will always find your way. But most of all, keep writing...and keep reading, too.
