Just something I wrote right now. It could definitely be expanded and there are some parts I really hate. Give me feedback if you please....

Locked in limbo.
between your mouth
and words you never speak.
each letter dripping from your tongue,
a sweet suspension of
alpha-chaotic dissolution.

Your speech is gamed.
And we move around the chess board,
your taste buds singing intentions
to the knight upon my lips.
Just pawns....
lined before your honesty.

We trip across the squares,
the air between us growing thin.
Our pieces screeching,
to break the insidious silence.
While my queen,
she, slides along
and dangles upon your voice.
She swallows,
And you would know,
that I have won.

Nov. 9th, 2004 @ 12:17 pm crappy poem that came from nowhere... comments appreciated (x posted to own journal)
Current Mood: artistic
If I were to look beyond the chasm that i have built
Would I see your eyes.
Startling green tonight
but changing in degrees of brown
to relect my own.

If I weren't so afraid to look,
Would my fear show
What I most want to know?
Or do I know it already?
Am I thus always damned.
To live two lives,
Two loves of seperate volition.
Two hearts beating independently of one another
One for dependence yearning toward the independent
One for idenitity?
Who am I?
Or am I destined not to know.

So here is my first entry into the collabrative fiction section.  It is a chain story!  Come one come all!  Add a chapter add a paragraph!  Please use proper ediquette when dealing with characters other than the one's you've written into the story.  Only kill them off if you have permission from their author.  Oh, and don't try to hijack a story to make it your way or the highway, this is an organic symbiotic project.  Other than that it's free reign!

Here is the first entry...Collapse )

Hello! I guess I should tell you about myself before I post. Ummm, young and Live in the USA (California) I like writing of all sorts, I can be nice...but then again everyone can be mean. I reply to remarks that are too hurtful or just plain appalling with sarcasm, glares and scowls. Maybe some insults too.

Now, this poem is a about a friend who died. Don't ask how, I may just start bawling on you. The last line bugs me and I need some ideas.

Tainted By Kimberly Ann

He's tainted,
The sun goes down,
October sky darkens,
The sun goes down,
Below mountains,
The sky turns pink,
Turning black,
Just like him,
He's stained.

Ebony litters his soul,
In the good times you use to be so innocent,
Till it happened that atrocious day,
Now your tainted.

Shades of gray fade to black,
Like Coal simmering in the fire,
Or the inky black that rains from the sky.

The sun goes down,
Under grassy hills,
Lazuli skies darken to purple,
Fading to black,
Stars blink into existence,
Beaming like rays of hope in the velvet sky.

Existentialism in short supply
Laquered speeches and faces
Electricution to the cheater
Circumicision is perferred to watching the mudslinging
Time is out the window
Ingenius replies
One day as important as the next
No one knows who will win

Just a quick poetry topic...this may get some interesting responses. I challenge you all to come up with an Acrostic poem using the word E L E C T I O N as the vertical word. Basically how it goes is something like this:

E (insert your line here beginning with the E of course)
L (same thing)
E (so on...)
C (I'm getting redundant)

If you have any questions leave me a comment.
Oh! and be mindful (just in case) of peoples' opinions I wouldn't want to start a war of words if this got political :)

Hey collaborators!

I'm very psyched about this community. I used to spend a lot of time at writing.com back when it was stories.com. I enjoy collaborative writing, and having sort of that "choose your own idea" to end/continue a story. Unfortuantly that site has become filled with very young kids writing Harry Potter fan-fic and stuff about being shrunk to one inch or being gigantic. Neither of these interest me..I like harry potter but I haven't read the books to know what they are talking about, ya know?

Anyway..I also used to do Poetry "tag" with a couple of friends, but we have stopped doing it. This is basically when you make an AIM chat room and person A's turn is up and another person picks the title of the poem. So..think of it like this, person A gets a topic from another called "Fall Wonder" and ON THE SPOT you have to write a poem. It doesn't have to be a certain length or rhyming style, just what that person can come up with. This was a fantastic tool for working on descriptive writing. Not to mention you are thinking on your toes, so the poetry may not be fantastic, but your honing your craft. If you all think this sounds good PLEASE post about it, I'd love to get a once a week or more chat going. :D

So..yeah. I'd love to help and I think doing a "campfire" ghost story would be fun. Since the group is still pretty small, we can each get a turn, and start a spooky story or funny or whatever. Yes? No?

La la..I need to get writing again. It's been much too long since I've done a poem or short story, so I'm way hyped about this.

So, I'm trying to come up with a good first idea...I was thinking something for the season. Halloweenish even. With that in mind I'd like to open the floor to writings on strange fears. Poetry, short stories, a sentence...we'll take it all.

For a jump start I'll give this fear: Fear of being sucked down a toilet. (yes it is truly something people suffer from). or if you're in the mood for a more serious topic...how about Barophobia (the fear of gravity).

Or any other fears you might want to use.

If someone wants to throw out a setting/scene to narrow the subject down that would be awesome.

Also, if you want to spam your lists or make note of the community in your journals that would be doubly cool. Thanks!!
