Dear Emily:
Congratulations. Your work "Haunted" has been
selected for inclusion in the 2007 issue of bordertown.


Yaay, one of my poems got selected to be put into my college's literary magazine XD. Out of the ones I submitted, I didn't expect them to choose that one, but that just goes to show how much I know about poetry ^^;. *likes to write it anyway* It's silly, but I'm kind of proud, just because nearly the whole English department submits to it, and I got a poem in it XD.

I'm now a published poet, in one of the dorkiest ways XD.

I don't think I've posted that poem on mah LJ yet, so here it is, just 'cause ^o^:

"Haunted"
by Mちゃん

It was hauntingly beautiful,
that night that we called our own.
I want to hang onto this memory forever
but it always slips through my fingers.

That night that we called our own,
we were surrounded by glitters of the night
but it always slipped through my fingers,
and I can’t quite remember yours.

We were surrounded by glitters of the night
almost like sand in my eyes
but I can’t quite remember yours.
The more it comes back to me, the more I let go.

Like sand in my eyes
this memory I love brings pain.
The more it comes back to me, the more I let go.
Because... you weren’t there after all.

This memory I love brings pain.
It was hauntingly beautiful,
but... you weren’t there after all.
I will still hang onto this memory forever.

M, congratulations! It's not silly to be proud of your achievements, hush. Especially not with a poem as good as this! It's very haunting, and it makes me nicely shivery.

Anyway, congrats again! ^^

Awesomesauce XD? What the heck is that?

*falls over* THAT IS AMAZING. I'm so happy you found the secret-- make sure to abuse it XD.

My magazine is wonderful ^o^. *leafs through it some more* KAT-TUN, NEWS, Yamashita Tomohisa, WaT! *eyes glaze over* So much pretty XD. There's even a picture of Wentz in his nurse uniform from his latest drama >3. I... want to buy more magazines XD;.

Woooooooooooow, the poem is so... intricate. @_@ I can see what it got chosen! *nodnod* Be proud M-sama, you know that you pwn on this. You'd buy an issue of the magazine so you can hang up your published poem somewhere right? X333 Or show it off!

The magazine is free, so I don't have to pay for it XD;. *will grab 5 copies*

Hopefully I'll be able to get something published in a more... credible journal magazine, someday ^^. *shall work hard*
