chaos butterfly - limerick
There once was an old butterfly, Its wings the colour of sky. Though dainty in form It stirred up a storm Whenever it started to fly.

Doom -- Space Marines R Us
There's something moving back there in the dark, With razor-tipped claws and teeth like a shark; Its inhuman grunts drip like ice down my spine And its blood-red eyes glow with an unholy shine. Driven by blood-thirst, it hungers for me; It snuffles my scent, and gurgles in glee. With a blood-curdling shriek it leaps 'cross the room, And I blow off its head with an almighty boom. Smoke curls up slowly, like the vapours of hell, As with a smooth action I eject the spent shell; In goes another, with a comforting click. As I step o'er the corpse I give it a kick. One demon down, a thousand to go. I'd tackle them all if I had the ammo

do you remember lazy summer days? the lemonade you always used to make. the way the mountains shimmered in the haze. the laughter of the kids out on the lake. do you remember autumn afternoons? the creaking of our rockers on the porch. the games of chess we played, the mournful loons, the graceful dance of moths around the torch. do you remember icy winter nights? the shutters closed against the weather's ire. the cosy glow when we turned out the lights. the love we made in blankets by the fire. do you remember mornings in the spring? the budding of new life; the valley bloomed. the times we woke to hear the bluebirds sing. the church a-bu

The Alley
The footsteps were getting closer. Measured, regular, the clack of leather heels on rain-slicked cobbles was the solemn beat of an executioner's drum. Death approached across the courtyard in the guise of a German soldier. I flattened myself against the sodden brickwork, teeth tightly clenched to keep them from chattering. I willed my body still as the greatcoat-clad guard rounded the corner, afraid that my trembling would give me away. I willed the shadows darker, but the cold silvery light of the full moon dimmed not at all. I willed the soldier dead. Obstinately, he kept coming, each step drawing him closer to my position. Surely he mus

My Bio

Deviousness Award

darkphoenix epitomizes the life that a deviant lives. His beautifully and meticulously worded poems are some of the most wonderful submissions that deviantART has ever seen. The unwavering support for the community by way of eloquent comments on deviations, intelligent arguments in news articles and forum posts as well as his mature handling of various community related issues make him one of the most widely respected deviants that deviantART has ever seen. darkphoenix is the textbook example of a deviant and therefore will always be remembered!

Wow, it's been a while... Maybe if I can actually find some time now to play with Blender, I may soon be posting actual art here... Any day now... ;-)

Is this thing still on...? So apparently it's been a day or two since my last journal entry.  I've been ... busy.  My latest endeavour has been an image I've been working on in Blender, and I just popped in to upload it...  Most of my digital art to date has been work in progress, or extracts from larger projects, and as such has gone into my scrapbook -- but this one is all my own work (albeit done for a competition) so it's gonna join my poetry 'n such in my gallery! Yay... :-|

Just the place for a snark...
Eighteen months ago, I didn't exactly leave, and now I'm not exactly back. I called in for one of my very infrequent visits to clean out my inbox -- at least in part because somebody apparently requested my password (I'm sure it was a case of mistaken identity!)  I decided it was time to make a quick post -- although really there's nothing much to report.  A couple more novels under the belt (neither of them completed though) and a couple more HLDM levels to my name.  I really haven't been doing anything worth putting up on deviantART. The site looks a little sleeker and shinier these days, and I almost find myself tempted to re-subscribe.
