Literature
Kisses to Kings
I see the smile on their faces,
they're happy for real.
Yet I can't be a part of that,
because I simply can't deal.
With the fact that you left us,
You took glory over gain,
And the fact that you betrayed me,
will always be your shame.
So now I sit here coldly,
writing kisses to kings.
All the while tolerating,
the wound in my heart strings.

Literature
The Me Inside
To write my thoughts is to write my mind,
because I have enough to feed my psychosis for a lifetime!
And even when you're here with me holding my hand,
It takes all that I have not to scatter like sand.
And I'll blow in the wind like a thousand pieces of me,
Each one an insane fragment of the man that couldn't be.
Who was lost in the wind as his shell lived it's life,
A ghost in the machine, buried in ice.

Literature
Refusing Reality
There are times when I might be happy,
but those are few and far between.
I leave myself caught in the embrace of debauchery,
because to face reality is to admit that I am unclean.
And I chase my problems with sex and wine,
Hoping that the haze might never lift.
Because if I were to open my eyes this day.
I would finally see all the life that I've missed.
And that would probably break me...

Literature
Little Rose
I wished to put my flower,
into a shell of glass.
I wished to keep her forever,
but I knew she would not last.
So instead I would leave her,
in the garden where she was green.
for even if someone picked her,
my heart would remain serene.
"For at least she is free..."

Literature
Chaining Expression
I would gladly write you bloody words,
if only they'd cause you pain.
But you would never understand my cause,
because you're so deranged.
While you argue over the meaning of words,
the world itself will slit its veins.
And thus we will build our suicide,
from the expressions we constrain.

Literature
I Love You
I would write you a thousand different poems,
but only a few words really matter,
and perhaps they've been said enough,
that they are no longer special.
But still I would write them for you,
simple though they may be,
because it is these three simple words,
that display everything you mean to me...

Literature
Hello, Can We Talk?
It is when we laugh together,
that I remember what I like,
all these perfect moments of silliness,
captured by the camera light.
And I look at all these photographs,
remembering how we smiled.
Now I'll pick up the phone and call you,
because I've missed you all this while...

Literature
Modern Mindset
I find your words to be as ugly as the weight of your soul,
You're self righteous when you spit, but your heart is just cold!
and I'm afraid I'll never measure from a pole to pole,
but at least my mind is open; not an empty black hole.
You are the everything that's wrong in the world of today,
You spit the right but then you turn your cheek when others would say.
That our acceptance in a virtue, but your values are gray,
they either play along with you or there's hell to pay!

Literature
Man in the Mirror
Ice cold are my fingers,
writing sad words like an old singer.
I could write my life as if it were a ringer,
but we all know that's not the truth.
I go through the pain like rain through my roof;
watch water flash flood my existence as proof.
And I drown in the current, much like the abuse;
forced on by a society whose ideals are obtuse.
And I live in the machine out of life and desperation;
dreams are just my cloth, I wipe away my perspiration.
But I hold to hope that I might still someday see,
that man in the mirror, I once thought I would be...

Literature
We March On
It is incredible is it not?
To know that even after I have lost my kingdom,
my army still survives.
And despite the years that may pass us by,
despite the time that rots our ways;
We will be the ones to grab the future,
hoping we might have our day.
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen

Literature
These days of mine
These days past by in a blur of colour.
I wake, I work, I write, I writhe.
The pressure of existence grinds me down to the core.
But somehow, I find, I love it.
I love the stress of barely breathing,
I love the pressure as I am made to perform.
I love the intensity with which time passes.
Because it is progress that makes me feel alive.
So what have you accomplished today?

Literature
My Work Goes On
My poetry is not beautiful,
but you will always find yourself coming back.
Because the ugly concepts that I portray,
tend to leave you with more than just a momentary gob-smack...
After all my work is designed to make you think;
it is designed in a way that will make you understand.
That ultimately this world is doomed without change
and it is a change that will be brought about by our hand.
For what I do through my work is a subtle enlightenment,
even when it comes to a purely sexual piece.
Because my words are designed to awaken the fire;
One that will forge you into a living masterpiece.

Literature
A Touch of Sorrow
Old wounds have faded,
along with the scars.
So why do I feel,
like I'm still behind bars.
Caged and unable,
to connect beyond the surface.
I wonder if a heart might even be worth this...
But still, I keep trying,
though I know the end result.
No one ever really needs me,
and it's always my fault.
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen
:iconwordofchen:WordOfChen 30 3
Literature
Balance
It is easy to see the temptation and allure of the dark side.
And yet, no matter how deeply I fall,
the light calls me back.
And I have learned from experience,
that the path of peace is not through fear.
For the fear of negativity itself, will destroy you.
Do not despise your darker side,
Embrace and understand it;
do not be entranced and enthralled, however
lest you believe that hatred is the source of your power.
The darkness and the light are tools like any other.
And their strength and weakness
Depends entirely on the user.

My Little Dancer
She dances on my strings,
but without my direction.
For though I am her puppeteer,

I could hardly change perfection...

Dark Dreams #1 - The Meiko
Have you ever heard of a creature called the 'Meiko'? (pronounced May-Koh) 
I hadn't either until I had a dark dream about it, so without further adieu, let me explain to you what I saw in my deepest darkest nightmare.
The dream began with me running from something or someone. I was in a cold dark cave and this thing was chasing me, it wasn't fast enough to catch me, but it was just fast enough to keep up. I remember it had an elongated head and four arms along with a pair of short, deformed legs. It couldn't run but it could crawl and waddle extremely quickly. Normally I would have felt panicked but in the dream itself, I felt calm, almost like an action hero! I ran through the tunnels as if I'd done this a dozen times, each pathway was dark and barely lit, but I felt like I knew my way out of there. There were other people running in the tunnels around me, sometimes I'd catch glimpses of them through breaks in the rocks. 
This tunnel sequence continued for some time bu

Commissions

Poetry - Free Verse
 Hi there guys, this is the commission tab for Free Verse Poetry. Please remember to note me as well so I can try and find your commission as this is the first time I'm doing this.

Basically I will write you a poem on any topic and if you want it done over an image (as seen in the examples) then you will need to provide me with the base image to use. In which case, note me and I'll give you my email as I cannot use my own image stockpile for commercial works.

As I mentioned, this tab is solely for use on 'Free Verse Poetry' as such you only need to provide me with the core theme or topic. For example if you give me something like: 'Love' I will interpret it in my own way. If however you are more specific, for example giving me something like, 'A romance between a man and a girl he shouldn't love' then obviously I will be able to write something more specific xD

It's up to you how you want me to do this and of course since it is Free Verse and thus the easiest to do, this is the cheapest commission available :)

However please note that 'Epic' poems are not done using this particular tab. You have to use the 'Epic' Poetry request tab as this is for shorter, lighter works.

ADDITION: You can ask for a reading for free! It will be delivered as an mp3 file (^_^)
Poetry Free Verse - Epic!
This tab is specifically for Epic Poetry (Free Verse format).

Due to Epic Poems being longer, I cannot place them on an image. If you want an epic, although it is pure text, due to the longer creation time it is slightly more expensive than 'Free Verse Poetry'.

However, while this tab is specifically for longer works, I also don't run my works on and on, so if you want something that runs on, please do specify that but remember that it'd going to look pretty shoddy if the core theme is simple (i.e. if you just tell me 'Love' and I have to make it epic) xD So try to be as specific as possible with your request :'D

ADDITION: You can ask for a reading for FREE! It will be delivered as an mp3 file (^_^)
Traditional and Fixed Form Poetry
This tab is specifically for traditional and fixed format poems. They are the most expensive as they are extremely restrictive and require the longest creation time. (It is also likely that I will have to LEARN the poem format requested but I shall do my best to fulfill your challenge)

When asking for this type of poem please specify:

- The Form of Poetry I am required to write
- The topic and/or theme of the poem (please be as specific as possible)
- The length of the poem (short, medium or long)
- Whether you want it overlayed on an image (short/medium poems only and you need to provide me with the image)

Thanks :'D

ADDITION: You can ask for a reading for FREE! It will be delivered as an mp3 file (^_^)

Hi everyone,

Still getting back into the swing of things.

Here are some of my most recent videos and I'm trying to get back to doing a poem a day ^_^.

Other than that, I need a temporary female co-star for YouTube, there's no pay and it's volunteer only, but I want to ensure Wanderer-Fehn can take things easy while she sorts her stuff out. Of course I will carry on my projects alone as needed, but a nice female co-star would help ^^

Here are some of my recent videos:



  • Listening to: Hollywood Undead
  • Reading: Nothing
  • Watching: Souls obviously
  • Playing: Heroes of the Storm
  • Eating: Souls obviously
  • Drinking: Souls obviously

To write my thoughts is to write my mind,

because I have enough to feed my psychosis for a lifetime!

And even when you're here with me holding my hand,

It takes all that I have not to scatter like sand.


And I'll blow in the wind like a thousand pieces of me,

Each one an insane fragment of the man that couldn't be.

Who was lost in the wind as his shell lived it's life,

A ghost in the machine, buried in ice.

There are times when I might be happy,

but those are few and far between.

I leave myself caught in the embrace of debauchery,

because to face reality is to admit that I am unclean.


And I chase my problems with sex and wine,

Hoping that the haze might never lift.

Because if I were to open my eyes this day.

I would finally see all the life that I've missed.


And that would probably break me...
