Baverel

Bavvy - cheers, although I'm sure there's nothing limited about your understanding. Liked the little snippet.

Altahn - I didn't know there was a Discussion Board, is it hidden somewhere?

As in, I'd like to see you guys write some short and playful poems, silly Posted Image

As for my autobiography, that'll have to wait until I get married and get my career going. Sex and violence sells, after all Posted Image

Thought I might post a piece I wrote a few years back, be gentle.

The Past Against the Present


Darkness rises from the deep
Levithian, stirred from sleep
Seeping from my broken head
Here to confront all my dead
Reason has gone, dismissed at last
Arise up chaos, from the past
One last scream, from inside
Another spear through tattered hide
The final banner
Suicide rush
Sudden clamour
Clinging crush
Then comes silence, from the grave
There's no-one left alive to save
The dead depart, all are gone
Obey the Siren's silent song
The sun soon rises, dawn is nearing
Memory fades, out of hearing

Merci beaucoup Posted Image

"Eighty One" refers to the number of syllables--nine lines with nine syllables in each--as does "Three Cubed". The Sinking Road is just another life metaphor (stole the title from a song), and Blackberry Flail was a rush job where I'm not at all satisfied with the ending. "Dead Wood" was actually a joke of sorts, written for a very silly person, which is why it seems nonsensical Posted Image

Oh, and "Enchanted Glade" is one of those irritating poems where each stanza is a haiku, only I added a word in between them.

can;t bloody sleep Posted Image
which is the only reason i am posting this which i just found; due to the tenuous link that it says the word insomniacal. once Posted Image
written what seems like a long time ago, incredibly relevant right now, if only in the fact that i cant sleep! Posted Image

and yes, as those who knew me when i wrote stuff will no doubt have guessed, it isnt happy Posted Image

Blinking Cursor
===============

Insomincal daydreams to fill endless nights,
Staring at the glaring white screen,
Blinking cursor mocking me,
Offering a solace from words
That remain sadistically out of reach.

Mindless tunes blare through tinny speakers,
Monotonous drone of teenage angst,
The pointless and overly dramatic,
Reminding me why,
I've only got one day to die.

The empty tub beside me,
"Take one per day.
In the event of an overdose
Please ring the doctor immediately",
Lies next to the disconnected phone.

Razor blade in unsteady hands,
Pressed hard against veins,
Pumping dead lifeless blood
Through a young vibrant corpse
With millenia old eyes.

No revelation comes,
No salvation offered,
No dreams to hide in
Nothing but the blurry white screen
And the red red carpet on which i lie.

My first time here, I must confess I have skipped to the later stuff on this thread for now. Orfantal, I like your writing, a bit beyond me though, at parts. I did like My Late Demise in particular, it seemed very wistful/bittersweet, which I liked.

damn you. this has been playing on my mind for ages. well i've finally got the internet at my house so here it is. the last two verses are a late addition and it shows i think. technically... a **** it, you know what i think about technical aspects of my work Posted Image

this was written in a couple of mins on the back of my pad last year when i was round a mates house and he'd popped out i just had the urge to write.


Two dollar whore
-----------------

Reach for the bottle once more,
Top willingly coming undone in my hand
And the slender bottle leans forward suggestively,
flashing its neck at my captivated eyes.

I wet my lips on your honey nectar,
Feel the soft caress of you upon my tongue ,
And then you penetrate me
Filling my whole body with that sensual heat.

I'm giddy with lust for you,
Shaking hands fumble clumsily
lLke a teenage virgin,
Failing hard to arouse your gratitude.

Sweaty fingers fail to keep you close enough
And you fall from my grasp,
To the hard ground with a shattering scream
That makes me shudder in my love drugged slumber.

Brought back to life by a bitter sun
Bleary eyes see you lying down below,
Empty and used,
Empty and useless to me now.

Lurching to my feet
I make my way outside that world,
And start looking for what I want,
Another two dollar whore.

Orfantal, this is the apogee of your oeuvre.

Nothing else that I would have to say.
