I have searched the very depths of my being,
Seeking the essence of the void...

To understand its nature,
To become a part of nothing...

For where else can we be free of turmoil,
Where else can a beaten soul go to rest?
If not in the comforting embrace of eternal oblivion?

...

Such is what I seek, away from the noise that burns at my ears.
Away from the many voices that drill into my mind.

For these are not the whispers of psychosis,
Nor the delusions of a twisted psyche.
Instead they are the whispers that are heard all around us;
The whispers of the every-man.

He who desires the body of another.
He who desires the fat of his wallet.
He who cares only for self-satisfaction
And He who wishes to stand above all.

Voices, voices, noisy voices...

Eternally spitting their foul words into me.
Even in the realm of fantasy I can no longer escape!
For they are here, and I read their words scrawled across the walls of my sanctuary...

...

Come to me,
I hear it calling.
Come into the embrace of the void...
Know peace, know serenity,
Know escape from that which binds you.

And in hope I follow...
Drifting to the edge of the bridge.
Leaping eagerly beyond the borders of madness;
And plunging slowly, deep, into the bottom of my soundless tomb.

Ah, beneath the rippling surface of the water;
My empty eyes gazing upon the brightness of the sun.
At last I've found it, in the depths of solitude:
The sweet serenity of my soul.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

This here is a commission for :iconoreochema: - She's quite an incredible writer and she is NOT a cookie. I repeat, she is not a cookie. Please verify this fact for yourself by viewing her deviant art. She has quite an interesting method of writing; spinning tales and poetry from trigger phrases. I myself have never worked in that fashion but it was interesting to do it this once. Again I repeat that you should check her out and of course she is not a cookie :3

As for the poem, the phrase that she asked me to use was 'Sweet Serenity of My Soul'. Upon hearing that I immediately tried to do a happy or motivational piece, because naturally that's what you think about when you hear that phrase. It ended in miserable failure. Then I remembered, silly Chen, you're a DARK writer for a reason. And so, in the fashion of Netto Hikari (from the Anime Rockman.EXE which is totally awesome shut up please!), I stood with my legs a shoulder width apart. Raised my hand above my head and said: "Dark Chippu, Slotto-IN!" and with that I used a darker tone to write this piece.

I wanted to convey mostly the fact that there is a lot of negativity in the world and while I and some other prefer to deal with it head on (some through heroics, others like me through outright villainy), some prefer to just shut the world out and withdraw from it. This piece is about them because when you feel like you're drowning...the quietest place is at the bottom of the sea. "The sweet serenity of silence".

If you too would like your own commission done, feel free to use the order form in the journal :3 (the journal also tells you what I offer)

:iconpointcommissionsask: - Get your own awesome piece of lit. done today ^^

The void can either offer shelter and serenity or emptiness which kills your soul slowly. It's a double edged sword. Beautiful poem but it's not like my comment actually matters.

I also tend to tack 'sauce' onto other words as well, like 'awkward' or 'creepy' just because sauce makes many things better! :D
