Thank you also for the new word fatalistic.I looked it up,very interesting.

I never have an idea before I write,it usually stems from a word or feeling or tune that gives me a rhythm for the way the words progress.
I am sometimes surprised myself of the way they map out and the places and feelings I transport myself to whilst writing.


This is my first time ever putting up my words for people to see in a specific place designated to writing,so I was very nervous in doing so.
I don't mind whether people like or dislike it but at least by putting it up it gives people the chance to find out.

I love reading peoples words ,and wish there were more to read on this creative writing section.

Thanks again and I hope to get the opportunity to speak with you again.
Fatalistic.....love it.
Like you I love words. Used in the right way they can make us laugh, cry and tug at our heart strings, cause anger and conflict. Very powerful really. If you have other pieces of work you want to share I'd love to read them.

Cheers,I will do and likewise if you have also.
I don't write as often as I used, or would like to.

I would absolutely love to do spoken word,I have it all in my head and is unlike anything I write, but I need to translate it to paper and then into physical emotion which should be an interesting experience!!!
Then of course I have to find the balls to actually do it,the rest is easy in comparison to getting up and doing it.

Ah maybe next week!!!
Keep in touch and Thanks a million.

Hail and thunder,
snow and ice
began to whither
our paradise.

No yeast to harvest
no bread to turn
few are the forests
and no fires burn.

Food so scarce
lengths well over run
cattle all starve
no milk to churn.

"Plague is upon us"
The people now cry.
"If god cannot save us
Why even try".

Children unhappy
no smiles can they keep
nothing but hunger
to lull them to sleep.

"Why has this happened
what have we done?
Deliver us from evil
thy will be done.

There goes my family
I wave them goodbye,
they have plenty of company
on the cart where they lye.

I know I'm not far behind you
but carry on,
try as I must,

Ashes to Ashes,
Dust to Dust.

I fell asleep in a sea of dreams surrounded
by verse,
Crumpled up I lay with ease.

Shut your eyes it takes time to rest and unwind.

There's no need to worry,
Your o.k.

Relax ,deep breaths.

Maybe you should lye down your looking a little peakish,
Your starting to get very pale.

You alright?
take a seat,
deep breaths.

"BYE,BYE"
I'll just drop and lye....
for a moment.

I'm gone,
far from the ground I lay upon
and deep beneath the atmosphere,

CHAOS.

I pay no heed as I lay here unconscious.

"WAKE UP"
"WAKE UP"

AND BREATH.

Some Day We Have To Share This Sight Together

You cannot walk these roads with me tonight,
And tomorrow morning feels too far away,
And so, instead, I force my hands to write
A pale impression of the Milky Way.

Every star that can be viewed by mortal sight
Carries over Moher’s cliffs and waves
A lonely message that I hope just might
Redeem my absence over summer days.

And if a man had wings to give him flight
I’d take a leap from castle walls to say
That Heaven’s quilt of jewels holds no light
To match the diamonds in your smiling face.

I promise that this sight we’ll one day share
As an embracing, starlight-gazing pair.

Yup, that's all my own work. Written while exiled in the Arann Islands a few years ago.

Not entirely anyway. It's funny what ideas can come to you on the way home after supervising a céilí.

Filleted a moth this evening.

Horrific really. Poor thing still breathing.

Still though, a curiosity had besieged me, on seeing

Another being, protruding from a crude opening

Below its torso, while poking it under scope.

I was hoping to get a closer look,

To understand what was unfolding.



What it took, was to lightly trim

Off the limbs. Whittle away the wings.

Other such deplorable things.

The precision needed to succeed in

Removing the unwanted pieces,

Attempting to reveal its species,

Left no room to consider the moths feelings.

I crushed its head with a tweezers.



Most likely a parasitic creature.

I took pictures. Spent hours observing its features.

With no success, My mind digressed,

I began thinking of sleeping.



I decided to keep it.

To see if tomorrow we could tease it

Into another suitor.

Though only to explore its nature.

I swear, never for pleasure.



But it died. I knew it would.

And all night, I dreamt moths ruled the world.

How about this?
I really liked Closing Time. Reads nice.

Love?


Angry Voices fill my head,
Reminding-of all things said

Tainted passions flared
Silly intentions shared
Feelings hurt for many days
The emptiness lasts for days


And all the time-twas hidden
The real issue forbidden
Unrequited love in many ways
Will never ever go away

[QUOTE=Aquila;78423325]Love?

The funny thing is that I will never know how it reads in your head or sound ,but I have found a lovely broken rhythm in speaking it out in mine.
I really enjoyed it ,thanks.

I have a couple of lines that I thought of a long time ago and had always planned on basing a poem around them,

( it's dark in here,
too dark to see how dark it really is)

Reading your poem reminded me I had yet to do it,so thanks for bringing it back!!!
Be great to hear more.
Thanks.
