It’s the guitarist night. Allen Powell writes the lyrics of his songs and they’re poetic. He sings one of his new songs titled, “New Her’.

Brighter and cleaner she emerged,
Out of the ashes,
She has risen,
Out of midnight,
She has come out,
Out of troubled waters,
She has surged.

Her sky no longer wears a gloomy look,
Its sun is not shrouded in sombre clouds,
She can look at the stars and smile,
She has walked out of her dreary chamber,
She’s haloed by dazzling lights.

Tears stream down Courtney‘s cheeks as the song sinks into her.

A very beautiful story framing a well-written resurrection and renewal poem. Our favorite line from the poem is “She’s haloed by dazzling lights.”  The last line is a perfect ending, introducing a character who is deeply affected by the poem, just as we were.

I think you should be a poet, Thompson. This is beautiful and, I believe, my favourite of your stories so far. Your first verse brought to mind a phoenix. Quite lovely, and very nicely done.

I agree with several others, Thompson – this is your best story so far. It’s so moving, a sort of story within a story. The poem has depth and is very meaningful. The characters who are singing the song/poem and listening to it have their own stories which are implied… Read more »

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
