The 17th Shard has been a website for about 10 years, give or take. A month or two ago, we reached 1,000,000 posts. This was a huge occasion and people celebrated. We have almost posted 100,000 more posts since that time. Has the Shard suddenly become more popular? Was it the release of RoW that brought people to the site? Why has the activity increased so much, and how do we keep the activity so high?
I don't know if this has been attempted before (and if it was - I'm sorry, I'm not one for necroing threads) but I know quite a lot of sharders here are actually very, very brilliant poets and I thought it would be good if we could, like, post our poems in a single place. Newcomers could try their hand, experienced ones can read through and critic stuff like that. And more importantly, we can just write what we want when we want it. I'll start - here's one I wrote, it was originally for someone I knew and now it's just for someone, anyone. We Were Once a Bridge We can't expect things from each other. Except for the songs meant to drive us away. I mean it, reach out and hold my hand All I'll hold is the distance between us. Twisted fingers Broken glances Stories told underneath these covers Warm red sunsets Deep blue midnights Let's just settle for well used lovers When all is said and done Hold out your hands and reach for the distance. Maybe that way you'll find out That there's nothing to grab on to.
