Chasing Shadows of You...

No matter the years that pass me by,

It seems I am forever trapped.

For when it comes to deceiving myself,

I'm afraid I'm rather apt.

In the end the truth which I sought to avoid, is now knocking at my door...

A rabid rat that chews at me; one I can't ignore.

And though I might have grown this body, from the lonely years I've seen.

I'm afraid I can only chase the shadow, of my dearest Angeline.

- Chen Yuan Wen, 14th January 2012
Just a little something for Valentine's day.

I should probably say though that Angeline is a fictional character and is just there to fit the rhyme. After all my girl would kill me if I was writing for another girl xD. Bwahaha, enjoy the romance you lovely people. V-day rules...except for the unloved...

.___. It's okay, I will lub you <3

The Word of Chen \(*w*)/


News Section:

Ladies and gentlemen, pirates and pirettes, Today marks the beginning of my new Spread the Word Campaign for 2013. Essentially, I plan for it to be a year long event and it will be focused around the concept of 'cross-marketing'. In other words, 'you scratch my back and I scratch yours'. How will it work? Read on and find out :3. ------------------------------------------


...The Word of Chen... Okay, so the first part of this campaign is clearly to spread the Word of Chen. What does that mean? It means I need to get my DA account out there and the best way for me to tackle this is with the help of the public. What do you have to do? Simple. Get 1 new person to watch me. All you need is 1. If you want to get more, save them for other days. All you have to do, is send me a note telling me who the new

Chen, you are delving among the ranks of those poets I havecritiqued who love the short form to the traditional. I do admit that your skill has not altered. The aptitude for rhyme and meter remain, and the glibness and choice of diction are still evident. My oinly tiff with short podetry is that I haveless to work with when I critique.
Suffice't to say that a true poet, like us, can handle any length and style and guaranmtee our effects.I have enjoyed this effort as much as the previous ones and they are your trademark in the craft. Cheers for another master work.

Shall I come onboard?
