    Well most of my work comes from some part of myself or a dream of mine. There are some I create however as experiments or challenges to people Such as this one, I was experiencing with nonsense verse.

    Spoiler:
    Ballad of the Wurssfurn

    Oh curse oh worse, the purse of many verse,
    My the fool, thy own tool,
    Feeling wanting merely taunting, their head spinning through about,
    Oh the Jaunting and the flaunting, inner spectres seeping out,
    Through the woods and back, an idea merely,
    Looking for with a sore, eyes scanning silly,
    Worm of noon and bird of flight,
    Coming soon but not at night,
    Why terry while the merry find,
    Awful scary and and awful hairy bind,
    Up and down like a kite,
    With a frown at the sight,
    Frightful baring, senseless tearing,
    Long and pointed to a key,
    Without warning, came dark hoaring,
    Awful Wurssfurn without caring,
    Awful Wurssfun still just glaring,
    Nasty nasty is the plight,
    Mean Wurssfurn hunting,
    Mean Wurssfurn blunting,
    Why not save a wicked bite?

    I can guarantee you I'm shyer (if that words exists) than you. I can't force you to anything of course, but, I insist that you reconsider, at least we could compose together and when you feel ready you could add your voice, or just sing to yourself a melody, and I will make it with instruments. If it's what you like, you should do your best. The only 2 things I do in my life is (besides studying of course) videogames and music. Almost no social life lol. So, I can tell you, I dedicate most of my time to those 2 things.

    I don't like to sing in public too, that's why I recorded myself just to realize I suck at it, but even if I would be good it, I would hardly do it. Recording feels safer also, and you don't have to show it to anyone if you don't want to.

    Just think about it. Add me on Steam or Skype. Just PM me and we can talk more into it.

    Tolvo, that one is good too. Would have commented before but I had cake and ice cream that needed eating. Good imagery for a bleak topic

    Well there is one thing I've always said when dealing with sexual situations in horror.

    I do my best to make sure there is no way it is sexually arousing. Nothing is pretty, every ounce of it is disgusting and uncomfortable. Because that's how such events actually are.

    I can tell you right now. No matter how much you insist, i'm the most shy out of the two of us. And i'm stubborn, so let's settle with that. As for doing something, trust me, i would really like to. And i mean it with all of my heart, i really would. Music is my passion, and honestly the thing keeping me sane at times. But i just CAN'T. I just can't do it. My heart tells me the desire it has, but my body tells me not to. I just can't.

    On another note. I'll be posting one poem now, so prepare for something horribly bad! big grin

    My blood
    Cold as ice,
    It's quite hard to emphasize,
    My blood,
    Running through my veins,
    It's the only thing keeping me warm,
    My blood,
    The last evidence of my humanity,
    The last evidence of my sanity,
    My blood,
    The last evidence of my existence,
    The last evidence of me.


    Edit: The reason the title is in three different colors is because i've made a background with this here poem. And it just so happens to be a bloody one with a black background, thus i tried having it fit along with what the background looks like. Enjoy!

    Edit2: Decided i'd just fix the title, so it's all red. It's not like the ''effect'' would matter anyhow, since you haven't seen the picture. Shrug

    Edit3: Sorry for being all short and woobles.

    It seems interesting, a bit simple. But it seems like this will be early work that you can reflect on when you write something later. Trust me I have so many works I look back on and think, "Well this had interesting ideas but it just wasn't fully there. This one is like a predecessor to my story X."

    This one has some references to mythology, as well Paradise lost, and the shadows upon the walls.

    Spoiler:
    Bound

    Earthly vestments hold down that which is on the slab. A brutish looking giant with a flat face. Constantly taunted by his creator and master, a devil in the guise of a prize winner. The torture fueled the stewing behemoth who broke his chains. A window was open yet he hesitated seeking vengeance. The gray haired mad man was thrown and broken upon a wall. Freedom had been taken, as such his form was immortal. A monster forever, a birth by violence forcing a future downfall. Only fools conquer half of a foe.

    Knight's Code

    Here I stand
    This is my armor; let it be battered for you.
    This is my shield; let it protect you.
    This is my sword,
    The bringer of justice,
    Take this, my hand; let it help you.
    Take these, my legs; let them help you stand.
    Take these, my words; let them calm you.
    Take this, my loyalty; let it never falter.
    Let me be the one who fights
    When you are too weak.
    Let me be the beacon
    To lead you through the dark.
    Let me be the one that never gives up.
    Let me deliver kindness,
    When there is only hatred.
    Let me be chivalrous to you,
    When others are not.
    I am a knight,
    And this is my code.

    Very nice Rud, I've actually got a sort of similar one.

    Spoiler:
    Ludwing's Lullaby

    I am your Guardian,
    I see all within the changing dark,
    I'll wisp you away from all the fiends in life,
    We'll soar up into the never ending sky,
    A brighter sun at the end of our voyage,
    Nothing to fear in sight,
    A divine sword cuts out our path,
    Just remember to hold on tight,
    I'll protect you with my gleaming shield,
    We'll travel beyond Earth's reach,
    Our journey will never end,
    I'll always watch over you,
    There's no reason to be afraid,
    Because I'm your Guardian.

    Spoiler:

    The Holding Glass

    "A chalice sits on my fingertips, it dances with the story I tell, my words

    illustrating a supernatural night. However this event was just as any, often I was

    called on to narrate a tale. The cup held fine wine, which often loosened my lips.

    Grand gestures riled up my listeners at a heavy cost. A simple spill, a few drops

    hitting the carpet. A look of horror on my host's face, the guests reacting in turn.

    The speck of red on the carpet a serious barrier to my adventure. Immediately the joy

    had vanished, hushed talk encircled many. Quick were they to judge what little made it

    past the thin walls. They take for granted what my chalice still holds, truly we are

    all pessimists. The reason being their views, and my lack of surprise in humanity."

    Nice thread! I'm way too self-critical to even try writing a poem in english, but I enjoy reading yours very much. Keep up the good work guys.

    @Rudmed - I like that. The idea is simple, but only in a good way. Just like knight's poem in my opinion should be happy Good stuff!

    @Tolvo - That's an interesting metaphor. Your "holding glass" poem i mean. Really got me thinking. But i would have to gather my thoughts a bit before saying anything more specific.

    Well when I started it the first thought was, "Looking Glass. People use mirrors for character reflection always. Why not make it a glass holding something, that causes reflection?" I usually start off with a really simple concept like that and then see where I can take it.

    It's same when i write music. I play something random, then get an idea from a single note, or melody or rhythm and start building around it.

    I've been writing a short story based on re-occuring dream I had. Had it almost finished but my editor killed himself and I tossed most of his work per his wishes. So I'm re-writing it. It has poetry in it but I don't want to post a story when you guys are focusing on poetry. Btw the chapters are not long maybe 1-2 pages, let me know if anyone is interested and I'll post the first chapter =) just don't judge to harshly

    I'll throw some poems down here....most were drafts but some I think are passable.








    The Dark Tower

    Sick and still it rises tall,

    Beyond the bounds of mortal men,

    It’s bent and broken form depicts the fall,

    Of a Darkling humanity beyond my ken.

    And of the men whose journeys long,

    Stood before its towering manse,

    Of the tellers, those who of them sing their song,

    And watch the wanderer’s macabre dance.

    Sudden storm o’er thorn'd crown and kingly seal,

    And jagged sparks steak the skies,

    Whose mournful silhouette doth reveal,

    And the word of mouth now filled with lies.

    Such a store of knowledge is to be but scarcely found,

    Yet within a libraries hallowed halls there is not a sound.



    End of the Day

    Erskine was there, yes,

    Glassy eyes, milky eyes,

    All peer into the evening light,

    After a long cold day.

    He’d turn up the heat,

    In his drab grey Nissan,

    Shelter from the bitter winds,

    In that warm leather coat.

    Oh and the Height, so high indeed,

    Would lonely stand so tall, and

    Watch over children,

    Birthed from homely womb.

    They’d branch out,

    They walk briskly, but a few

    Words uttered from their quivering lips,

    To seek other arms to envelop them.

    And Locke, so furtive,

    So easily forgotten, wedged tightly

    Twix the scrabbling trees and stone,

    In quiet thought and careful repose.

    She’d descend the many stairs,

    Open doors passed watchful eye,

    Notes clutched in cramped hands,

    Clinging to the knowledge.

    Erskine says to Locke his goodbyes,

    Locke says to the Height, goodbye,

    Height looks down to Erskine,

    And mutters his farewells.

    They know the day is done,

    The last ray fades,

    They do not mind,

    They know tomorrow still waits.













    An Odyssey





    Here stood a man, middling birth,

    Whose soul did crave for such lands unseen,

    To there travel and seek his fill.



    In unlearned youth, with fiery heart,

    And haste bereft of meagre thought

    Would he then leave his stony shores.



    Cross roiling waves, smoking seas,

    Escaping Charybis’ unyielding reach

    While waves lap against rigid bows.



    O’er mountains tall, impassive stone,

    Whose jagged fingers reach to heavens high,

    To see all from Olympian spires.



    In deserts deep and wide, scathing winds,

    Wanderlust filled his veins with searing heat,

    Like desert’s kiss, freedom blooming in his heart.


    Not he to suffer the fetters, iron forged,


    But to slip beyond bonds of us mortal men

    To sample avian isles of silken cloud.



    Nor the gilded cage, sturdy gold

    Will hold his soaring dream within its manse,

    While vagrant clouds sail free.

    Soon to find the tender embrace, love eternal,

    Become his aegis from man’s true strife,

    To nurture a dream and legacy.



    To him time, the unyielding gift,

    Tempered youths impetuous drive,

    A life well lived, again, for him to see.



    These faded prints, ages unbound,

    Such memories fade from sweet young minds,

    To shadows and dust.



    Ere the break of day, sun’s warmth,

    With legacy’s orchid now in bloom,

    Bestirs the pool from where echoes come.



    Now in the twilight, such gentle grey,

    He would find his fate fulfilled,

    There to seek no more.



    A life complete, transcendent bliss,

    Many odysseys behind majestic bows,

    Finally on to sail mighty Aegean blue.










    The Locker

    Impassive steel, stony, sad,

    Yet in it treasure could be hid.

    To look inside I would be a cad,

    Yet some tiny key could lift its lid.

    A treasure box, some might say.

    Or some secret and shady coffer.

    And yet there goes by not a single day,

    Where I could resist its seductive offer.

    And many a day when passing by I would stare,

    Searching for the answer sweet.

    And never a sign it gave, nor a care,

    Whenever it silently I did entreat.

    And not once in that year did its doors show signs to ope

    Yet they say that a curious fool can do nought but hope.



    Motivation

    Any decision that you make

    Should be though out well in advance,

    of the moment it needs to be made,

    For hindsight in not a kind suitor.

    Callous though she be,

    More callous than embittered winter gales,

    The last thing you want is to be embraced,

    By her sweeping arms.

    Avoid hesitation like the plague,

    It’s the only thing that’s stopping you.
