Wish again to feel you. I miss every cell of your body, every second spent with you, every piece of memory, Every bite I had with you. I asked her to stay away, I wanted her to leave. I needed more space, This is what I used to believe. Frustrated by her demands and expectations, I felt little less of freedom. Started hating to explain how I spent my hours, what was I doing and what did I had for lunch.
Bored of relationship, Thought I needed a break, Just a bit more space, to do the things I crave. She misunderstood me terribly, I adjusted but failed miserably, Started losing myself trying to keep her closely. Finally, the separation happened, It got over I was delighted, went out on a trip, partied, enjoyed. She was the one who suffered the most Things got better as the time passed by. I pushed her away, I made her weep, Not thinking much asked her to leave. Break up was tough on her, But she got through, I made her cry so the Karma has to come for you. I Met her again at our favourite place, in hope of getting her back , but I could see it in her eyes, that I have been replaced.
Now everything is finished, everything is blown. I paused but she moved on. Going through the guilt , pain and alone phase after pushing my girl away. If you really want a break up think over a times before going for it. Karma is simply not a concept you believe in, or a concept you disbelieve in. It is not a matter of faith or sorcery. Karma is the outcome of your actions and your words. And the results of your actions and your words can occur today or in an infinite amount of years.
Poets who create for children of any age have a unique gift, the ability to get to the spirit of their subject. They see the world through the eyes of their intended audience. A Book of Poems Margaret K. Jul 30, Rachel rated it really liked it.

We got this book because my son was reading my old copy of Where the Sidewalk Ends , and he loved the poems as much as I did. When I looked for similar silly poetry books for kids, Outside the Box appeared, and it really is similar to Sidewalk, almost too similar, right down to the stark, black and white imagery that accompanies each poem. Not to say it wasn't a really fun read. This is just the tame version of Where the Sidewalk Ends. They both have poems about a sick day, except the twist in She We got this book because my son was reading my old copy of Where the Sidewalk Ends , and he loved the poems as much as I did.
They both have poems about a sick day, except the twist in Shel's version is that the girl was lying about being sick. The Outside the Box version is the boy has to be sick on Saturday. They both have poems about annoying little sisters. In Shel's version, the older sister tries to sell the younger sister. In the Outside the Box version, the older sister hates the baby sister but still thinks she's beautiful But don't worry, there are still plenty of boogers in it, like one my favorite poems in the book, Wishy Washy.

Then there was Professional Liar. I'm a professional liar, I tell tales most every day. But I'll shed some light.
My job is to write. And in fiction, lies are okay. Really cute, really funny, definitely influenced by Shel Silverstein, and in comparing the two, I like his work a little better because he pushed the envelope further, into darker places. But if you found his poems a little too harsh and disgusting, and you don't want your kid to get ideas about selling his baby sister, then you will probably prefer Outside the Box.
Jan 30, Deania rated it really liked it Shelves: I love the pictures as they are sketched. It gives it a simplistic feel and the color of black and white. I love the way the pages are used with words. For different poems the words are placed differently on the pages given it a unique style. If you like silly poems or fictitious then this is good for you. I am not much of a poem person, but I really liked this book. Mar 17, Nathalie S rated it liked it.
Outside the Box: A Book of Poems
The fun thing about reading children' poetry books is to find the gem that takes you straight back to your childhood and makes you shake your head in agreement "oh yeah When your toes are hanging over the bed and you tremble and shiver and quake with dread.. When you're sure you will make a midnight snack for the monster that's shrouded in shadows so black Just use the force field t The fun thing about reading children' poetry books is to find the gem that takes you straight back to your childhood and makes you shake your head in agreement "oh yeah Just use the force field to cover your feet- the impenetrable, magical sheet!
I also remember once having quite a dilemma as a chid--I wanted to wear a scarf at night to prevent vampires from biting my neck, while at the same being worried that the scarf would be handy for a burglar to strangle me Methink it was about that time that comprehension dawned and I stopped watching scarier stuff with my mother Nov 22, Andria Hall rated it really liked it Shelves: This poems in this book are easy to read and well written.
As easy as they may be to read, each poem can spark debate and conversation about the point the author is trying to get across. There are several poems that I read that I felt would be a wonderful hook for my fifth grade students because even in all of its simplicity, there is depth in every poem. In both of these poems you can discuss perspective from different characters. This was a wow book for me because within in this one poem book I have so many different standards and concepts that I could address. I liked how the wording is not too complex so that my students can focus more on the ideas that the poem is trying to convey.
I would recommend this book for grade 2 - 5.

Jun 07, Penny Peck rated it liked it Shelves: Written in homage to Shel Silverstein check out the dedication on the verso , this solid book of humorous verse will please readers, although it is not particularly memorable.
Ink cartoons add to the fun, and Wilson is adept at consistent rhymes. The only thing missing is Silverstein's subversive underlying messages.

Nov 17, Emily Cushing rated it really liked it Shelves: A book of poems by Karma Wilson is a poetry book.
This book was a Caldecott honor recipient for the illustrations that go with each poem. This book is intended for children ages six to nine years old. This book contains many easily written poems on many different subjects. Several of the poems only have three or four lines in them so they are easy for beginning readers. Each of the poems has a drawing to go along with it which helps to understand what the poem is about.
I would Outside the Box: I would rate this book a four out of five stars. There were many poems in the book that were enjoyable to read. Two of my favorites was called Man in the Moon and Sheet!. The pictures are all in black and white but I think children would still enjoy looking at the pictures. There are a few pictures that looked a little scary so this would not be a good book for smaller children that are younger than five. This book would be a good choice to use when teaching children what a poem is and to show them many examples so they could learn to write their own poems.
