A Midnight Weary

Amongst twinkling stars,
Much like a cricket's chorus;
Panicking student,
Types his essay:

"Failure is red,
My parent's say;
An Asian get 'B'
Is shameful display!"
So .3. I've been talking to the Captain, and he's very busy at the moment, but I managed to get him to send me something to post for everyone

This is what he sent me xD

He must have written it on the spot, cause it sure seems to match his current situation haha xD

Well, I hope you guys like it!

Wish the Captain luck with his work!!!

These Tears Would Come:



If my tears could tell a story of two -

What would they have to say about you?

Of a boy who spent his whole life seeking

And a girl who found it in the arms of another…

Would they tell us of laughter? Beneath a starlit sky,

Or of harsh words exchanged on bitter nights.

Would they speak of moments, so beautifully captured;

To be enjoyed in memory, like a perfect wine.

Or perhaps they would tell us of an untampered truth:

Of the lonely nights spent longing, for an Eden lost.

Captivated, habituated, to this lonely habit of you;

For her alone, these tears would come.



-Chen Yuan Wen, 31st march 2013
Ladies and Gents,

Happy Easter, I hope you're having fun so far.

I'll be posting a journal update tomorrow morning, since I've been so busy recently, but for today enjoy this sorrowful romance piece ^^.

You can also pick up the formatted Word (and PDF) version of this plus AUDIO! for just 10 points ;3 Click the purchase button and download them immediately :3

I felt that I ought to show, due to my recent slew of work, that I am not limited solely to dark topics. I prefer them, but romance is just as easy (especially if its sad).

After all, I'm sure we all have those people whom we find to be our 'habits'

Alright mates,
Been another long break due to all this job searching stuff and quite frankly I've got more of that coming up next week, but this week is the last round of applications and therefore it'll be more about the interviews and such in the days to come.

THAT SAID, TONIGHT I SHALL BE RELEASING SOMETHING NEW FOR ALL OF YOU! ORAAAA!
In addition to that this week, I'm hoping to release the first part of 'Live With Me', my first attempt at a sci-fi story. As well as a few poems I've written while being on the break.

War Tune:

I've got another beat for all my hard gamers,
Rockin' in 'Bloodfall', rank hall of famer.
Arena top ten, I'm the mage known as Ryda,
Got a femmie avatar; cute little strider.

You better come with me, if you want to live.
I'm roastin' up a storm with the fire that I give.
Meteor crash, I'm the king of all the stunners,
You better think twice if you're the knight or a gunner.

And if you talk big all them haters give you crap;
They cryin' on the field cause I bag 'em in the sack.
I'm sorry that you paid, but I went and broke your back.
Cash shop wings; I'll just rip em in a stack.

Cause even if you shellin' out dough to be the best,
I'm an Asian gamer and that's the fuckin' test!
I click at a rate that'll make you all explode.
Cause I control the lag and the inner matrix code.

And if you tried to ask me, I'd say that its a fact;
I'm Kirigaya Kazuto dressed up in black.

-Unofficial Release by Chen Yuan Wen, 12th April 2013
Okaaaay guys <3

Captain has been busy as per normal and I couldn't get ahold of him yesterday, but today he showed me this peace he wrote after starting this game "Wartune".

If you want to find him, he's on Server 188 and his character's name is 'Ryda'. He actually in the top 10 in the game's Arena, which is interesting considering he's only played for what...9 days :x

-Sigh- Asians x3. I guess he really wanted to be Kirito after all :3.

Anyway, if you feel like joining the Captain there you can let me know, or PM him directly in the game.

Keep supporting us okay, I'll bring you more of his stuff when I can and of course, wish him well for his upcoming exams~ PYON! <3

The Flower of Evil:

Evil is but a blooming flower,
Alluring, captivating.
It is born from a humble seed
And grows to corrupt a forest.

To watch its infection spread;
To be a part of its existence...
I can think of no better prospect,
Can you?

Indeed one might baulk at the idea,
Of seeing millions suffer.
To watch worlds scream and writhe;
To see them suffer and die, with living eyes...

Yet there is a mysterious beauty in such devastation,
Fear that shakes me to my very core;
Is transfigured into a twisted pleasure:
As I am frightened, so too am I aroused.

I am addicted to the ephemeral sensation;
To the borderline between rapture and rupture.
To see my own blood soaking from splitting wounds;
Leaves me maddened amongst these blooming flowers

-Chen Yuan Wen, 1st May 2013
Alright, so as always the Captain is extremely busy, but with quite a lot of pestering, and some snacks, I managed to squeeze this poem out of him. I find it to be quite chilling, and excellently written, and I hope you all agree!

Also, when he sent me this he made a comment; "1st of May is Madness Day"

I'm not sure what this means, so I hope you guys could explain? xD

The Real Writers:

There are those who sit with their laptops and tablets,
Clothed in a scarf and an artistic hat of some sort.
They ponder; leaving a stack of books beside them,
Sipping their decaf as though they are literature personified.

Posers...

What works do they prepare, other than blatant copies,
Perhaps a half-baked romance designed to woo a lady.
So convinced are they, of their own aptitude;
They are blinded by the beams of their burgeoning ego.

For the writer is not the man who is tapping away at keys,
He is not the man fervently reading with lensless glasses.
He is not the hipster debating ancient literature.
For he is a monster, wearing human skin.

He is the deranged madman, eccentric, uncanny.
He is the one who sits catatonic;
An entire world of fantasy playing in his mind.
He has gone through millions of scenes,
Thousands of scenarios, hundreds of plots
And dozens of characters.

He is not the man you expect him to be,
For a true writer is utterly WEIRD.

"So please do not offer me your shakespearian sonnets, kind sir,
For the world of Arrindor is calling to me! (*3*)/"

-Chen Yuan Wen, 4th April 2013
Direct from the captain himself~ x3

"Know the difference between the hipster and the writer. Often I seem many groups of 'artsy' individuals hanging outside the local coffe place drinking whatever strange blends they might concoct and thinking themselves professional.

If one has learned anything from 'Family Guy' its the fact that Brian griffin, who happens to be a bad writer, often does the sort of things you'd expect from these folk. They tap away at keys for a little while and feel accomplished.

No, that's not real writing. Real writing is seeing everything happening around you. You must constantly be living in the world you are trying to create.

For there is no better aid to writing, than to be living the fantasy you wish to live."

And that was all the coherent words we could get out of him ^^; Look forward to more wisdom/insanity tomorrow while we attempt to stop him from looking like a gremlin amongst the dust and boxes~

Author's Comment:

Alrighty so, I was thinkin' of somethin' t' write t'night, but with me mind focused on the e-book, good poetry just isn't comin' out.

However I figured this would be th' right time t' experiment with my newly invented technique t' combat writing slumps.

First of, when ye in a slump, it's cause yer brain is overheated. Like a clogged pipe things aren't flowing through. The only way to clean it out is blast through the blockage by writing like crazy. However if ye write long works, ye'll only go crazier.

The solution?

Write shorter poems, haikus, whatever you can get flowing in the shortest time possible. For me, I like haikus and I rarely get the chance to do them. Now I think I'll play around t' me heart's content.

One thing to note though is that the last line is 4 syllables instead of 5. Why? It simply sounded better with 4. Although the form for haikus is generally rigid, occasionally you can get a better result twisting the form ever so slightly. I want to try 6,8,6 and other numbers as well :3

By the way, credit for the fantastic image goes to

Of course I've edited it from the original as per the terms and conditions of use, but if you'd like to find great photos t' add t' yer art or to use as stock for FREE. Then MorgueFiles can help ye out ^^. They don't have a large selection, but they have a fair amount :3

I Like To Play With Skin:

Breathe -
My dear friends and watch,
As the feeling of life itself
Crumbles beneath each ounce of pain.

Needles slowly piercing into the body,
Paralyzing nerves and expressions.
A mask of pure horror; living terror,
Kept alive on the barest limit of the border.

Such tempting features,
Leave me eager to slip a knife beneath flesh.
Ripping soft layers of epidermal mache,
Tanned and dried, woven slowly into a loving mask.

And with my latest acquisition complete,
Only twenty spaces remain...


-Chen Yuan Wen, 28th April 2013
Well as you can see I managed to squeeze another amazing poem out from the Captain .3. It took quite some time, as he was very busy, but he sent me this, with a tagline mentioning something about needing food xD So yeeeah I'd say he's probably locked in his room again by now, studying more. God I wish I was as determined as him

Anyway I hope you guys like this piece, I found it absolutely mind blowing!

Words for the Young Bloods:

To all my ninjas sittin' low on the street side,
I want you all to raise your head with pride.
Because I'm callin' out, for the youth to come together
And get those big wigs off the fuckin' power ladder.

You ready? Because we're going at it hard:


See I'm the kind of guy that they're all playin' with
A systematic crisis workin' in the way we live.
The big shots still sittin' and they growin' fat.
With young bloods starvin' just to get their life on track.

We take psychometric tests and make a passing grade,
But ain't no job cause the corporate head is gettin' paid.
And when they screwin' with the money, they ain't never cut.
The young bloods be the first to get their letter up.

I say the system ain't shit and we all got it wrong,
The old mothers are just stayin' in for way too long.
I say we cut them from the system that they fucked up,
And let the young bloods take it; we'll just fix it up.

They set the game, but we're the ones playin' main;
I guess them ninjas all forgot the place from where they came.
If they were young once maybe they would know the feelin',
But until we get our grace, the blood will have to keep on spillin'...

Shout out to all my young bloods in the crowd.
We may have nothing, but we can still be proud.


-C-Dragon, 20th April 2013
Hey everyone!

Bunny Hayes here, finally able to post again on the Captain's behalf. God he's such a di-...I better not say that. Anyway, he finally contacted me and told me that his exams are done. He's still got assignments due so I'm in charge of things till then xD.

This is a piece he wrote recently after being rejected for many job applicatons. He told me he finally understood the driving force behind 'gangsta rap' and that was the aggressive anger toward an unfair situation.

I don't know how much of that is true ^^; but enjoy the Captain's piece. He rapped it under his rap name 'C-Dragon' which stands for Chinese Dragon if I'm not wrong.

Enjooooy~ <3 PYON!

-Co-Captain Bunny Hayes

P.S. I recorded the Captain's audio of doing this, he was talking to me so it's not a proper recording, but I figure it'll make him happy if you guys buy it. I'm putting it up for only 20 points ^^ (cause I think he could use some cheering up). There is no music, so it's all acapella, but it's still pretty nice.

P.P.S. Any of you musical people out there interested in turning the Captain into a rapper? He'll happily rap on your beats and tracks.

Practice Poem - Man in Cage:

When I was young I was taught that pain begets pain,
Anger and animosity, malice and cruelty;
So deeply inflicted, so lovingly gifted.
I tasted of its rotten core and dared to call it sweet.

But what do I have to show for it?
White hot scars that burn in my dreams.
Reminders of a fragmented bi-polar self;
Self inflicted propaganda, to reinforce the "truth".

Truth so lovingly fabricated by a weakness within,
So desperately crying out for vindication;
Openly denying all that might shed light upon me,
Seeking only the company of shades in shadows...

Within four walls I sleep in exile;
Quietly pretending that I am still sane,
Never noticing how it has all turned out;
Alone I remain the same...




Never reaching, never living; I am free within the cage

Author's Comment:

Arrr me hearties,

T'night I decided t' release this practice piece I did. More as a way of promotin' meself now that it's close t' the release date of me e-book.

In any case this poem was me experiment with the concept of an 'abstract poem'. That is t' say one that doesn't outright state its meaning and leaves you t' guess many things about it.

I can certainly say it was very difficult t' try and keep t' a concrete base idea while still keeping things relatively subtle. I doubt this could be considered anywhere near good but I suppose it wasn't bad fer a first practice run at the abstract stuff. I'm much more used to just splashing th' theme outright I suppose, rather than keepin' it hidden.

Also you might notice a kind of urban/spoken word feel t' this piece and if ye did, then yer right. I used slam as the basis for it ^^

Enjoy :3

Memories of War:

What is this long-lost memory inside?
Where oceans turn; what have we left behind
With star-burned wings out above the sky.
The sleeping sons are lovingly left to lie...

A thousand tears you've cried for all,
Now its time for you to fall!
Will you open up the door,
To the future we ignore?

Are you simply lying broken,
From the memory awoken;
Are you simply living lies,
Bitter taste with ropes you tie...

And the world will soon forget.

Fill my heart with this regret?

For the victims written in stone.

Unspoken sin you now atone...


Yeah I've seen this world where we livin' in pain,
Wrap my body round with chain.
Now we both know we be broken;
Give this man his smokin' token.

Held up guns with both his hands;
Not a boy he's cause he's a man.
Order comes by a suit and hand.
Will you flee or will you stand?


This is a memory of our war,
Of all the things that we can't ignore.
And staying blind to the cries of pain...


Will lonely ashes be what remains?

Author's Comment:

Aye maties,

As I've stated I'm going back t' basics and so this is actually a song that I wrote yesterday t'gether with me old friends from me rap crew. The part in italics is th' guest rap sung by them and I do the clean vocals (no change in font) as well the rough dirty growls (bold).

My friend raps in a voice similar to snoop dogg's smooth style so I thought it worked very well with the overall chemistry of the piece ^^ His piece is in italics.

It was a lot of fun to do this song (gotta admit that) even if the topic might be over done, I was happy to explore it and doubly thankful for the chance :3

Enjoy mates.
