A Shattered Illusion:

A day that was born of the brightest light
Has now shattered like crystals in the sinking dark
Where once the spirit was unfettered and free
Now it weeps painfully in a cage of thorns

Blood is drawn from its tender flesh
And drips slowly down to mark the skin
A tattoo of pain forever remembered
By a ghost that lives within

There is emptiness in this void
A cold and lonely song of existence
A solemn note born from the sheer magnitude of the silence
That it deafens both the heart and mind

In the quiet serenity of utter despair
What is born from the lack of a sense of hope?
A cold determination to steal the future
From the wanton wheel of fate...

"Such is the nature of desperation, when caught in an endless cycle of hate..."

-Chen Yuan Wen, 10th July 2012
Even the best of days, can quickly sour...

-Captain Chenbeard of the Black Fedora Pirates :iconwordofchen:

I actually picked it up slowly, first starting out as a rapper and then learning rhyme and then free verse ^^ It took time, but I definitely don't have talent, just pure hard work :3

Please come back to tonight and view my story "The Never-Ending Masque" a narrative poem, about the love of the stage (and metaphorically, the love I have for writing)

Sorry, with the current situation going on and my work being unfairly targeted (read the journal on the main page for details ^^)

I couldn't implicate my crew so now I'm acting as just Chen ;3

Well, I've read your journal...in fact, a day or two ago I came across one of your Prophets and saw their journal and started wondering what is going on...
How is D.A. supressing your freedom? I'm confused. And it's immeasurable, not unmeasurable :)
Reply
:iconwordofchen:
WordOfChen Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2012  Professional Writer
Ah thanks for that correction. And the suppression is because my work kept being prevented from reaching the popular in 24 hours, no matter HOW MANY faves it got. It was also denied popular in 8 hours yesterday. That is why so many people are up in arms about this xD

Sometimes the sourness turns bittersweet and then what's left is sweetness. I think that's how warheads candy work.

It's okay on the late response, I'm trying to clear my messages, too! It's hard to find words sometimes, though. Unless I don't think and just ramble.
