Laugh Tracks
L a u g h    t r a c k s.
Laugh lines.
What is the punchline?
Is it me?
Is it you?
What is it?
What are you?
What am I?
The distant
L a u g h t e r
Of clowns...
A pure state of euphorical being.
Silken gossamer spider webs,
Etched into every fibre
As it tempers the ultrasonic waves,
That my soul rides, surfing across
A cosmic tsunami
F l o a t i n g
Inside my head...
Poured into a thousand paper cups,
Crushed into ashes,
Spread across flower beds,
S c a t t e r e d
Throughout the forest
Of your psyche;
Tasting your essence,
I drink from the poisoned glass.
I gaze into the mirror,
And I see
The ghost of a young woman,
With laugh tracks for laugh lines,
And the face
Of a woman of olde...
The maiden hath become
T h e    C r o n e . . .
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 10 3
The Eking Elk
Open seas,
Closed heart...
Soul like a forest...
The cold static
Burning into my eyes,
Looming like a noose around my neck,
My blood turning silver
In the bitter moonlight...
As I comb along the beach,
Drenched by the mist of the tides...
I've always said...
One day I'll get tired of fighting,
I won't care anymore;
Now that time has come,
When the dark night of the soul
Shall fully take over...
Pulling me deeply into total darkness,
Drowning in all of the unused ink,
From the things I did not create...
Twisting out from between blank pages,
Eyes purified with tears,
Soul stretching across the depth of eons,
Spent waiting in patience and vain...
The elk prince approaches, patiently,
With gnarled spiders' legs as antlers,
The great dream prince greets you;
Eternity in it's entirety...
Heart hollowed out
Mocked by moon cretins,
H A T E D . . .
Seeping in from the dark,
Drinking from the final hourglass,
As I carve the moon from your heart...
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 9 12
Same Old Freak Show
Whether it's in a sideshow,
Or on a talk show,
It's just the same old freak show...
Mocking laughter and haunting stares,
Glowing embers of a dying art,
Nestled safely in the branches between
The forest that embodies your heart...
| C | A | G |  E | D |
Stricken of freedom with no way out,
Forever destined to be
The cigarette in your coffee cup,
Shrouded by the new moon's darkness,
The trap beneath your wounded paws,
Frozen, on the ground,
And bleeding blue...
S uff o cat ing. Hhh.
Slinking softly, filling in
Falling footsteps,
Drenching porcelain doll cheeks,
Like rain in the night...
You've become the voice
That sounds like silence;
M a d n e s s . . .
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 5 5
Wishing On Dead Stars
Every day I sit...
And I ponder...
And I wonder...
What it would have been like
If I had been courageous
Instead of scared...?
If I'd been able to speak that night,
Instead of remaining stoic and silent,
Gazing up at the heavens,
As if the answer were somehow out there;
If I'd been able to tell you
How much you really mean to me...
I let that moment escape me,
Even knowing full well
That I would never elude it.
But how could I ever find the words...?
When your eyes are the deepest pool of leaves
Hidden among the forest's ashen floor;
When I gaze up at the stars,
And then look at you,
How they spread across your cheeks,
I know that we could find every constellation there,
If only someone looked hard enough...
The way each and every strand of hair,
Is a jungle vine guarding a paradise,
How desolate was your sadness;
The agony that constricted you...?
How does one explain
The simple hidden pain;
Beloved phantoms lost to the darkness...
Never to be seen again.
I knew it...
When I knew...
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 6 11
More Than Just
Life is more than just...
Lottery tickets and half-smoked cigarettes,
Waiting, lurking in the dusty corners
Where cobwebs lurk,
Filtering the sunbeams where they fall...
It's more than just
These scattered moments,
Hastily scrawled within a faded notebook,
The edges yellowed and pages torn...
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 4 3
There is perhaps no greater pleasure in life
Than doing things which others have said
You cannot do...
But there is a great amount of pleasure, still,
In dealing with traitorous tyrants;
Black aura burning,
Smile like the Devil,
Eyes sharp as knives,
Glaring, glowering,
Forging victory over defeat...
And my,
How the ages have passed...
They have been far kinder to me
Than to lowly worms like you,
Who never work for their keep,
And never strive to do anything
Outside of themselves...
I am beside myself.
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 9 11
Stone Whispers
Here is where you will always be,
Running through the vast catacombs of her heart,
Her mirrored eyes seeing everywhere,
Her hallowed soul manifesting into everything,
As she shapeshifts into all things...
Q u i e t l y . . .
Her soul shifts through realities;
Sometimes they are sad,
Other times cruel,
Or even nostalgic...
Your presence is her only true paradise;
Within your eyes,
A plethora of Edens;
The place where her soul runs free,
Unbridled and wild.
S h e . i s . F R E E .
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 11 5
Acid Puppet
It clings to my skin,
Like a heavy oil;
Acidic rain...
Pouring into my wounds,
That had long since healed over...
Crying and calling,
On wounded knees,
Broken legs and twisted limbs,
You call to me,
Roving and pouring...
Raving like a hangman's tale,
A wave upon a ghostly shore...
I've cast you out,
Like casting nets,
Jellyfish tendrils uncoiling
To ensnare you;
Familiar poison touch.
And I withdraw...
A silhouette;
U n d o n e .
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 9 13
French Kissed On A Pirate Ship
I want it.
I want it  a l l . . .
I want rays of sunshine, dancing,
Across alluring wide open seas,
Stretched across the sands of time,
With mirthful wind filling my sails,
Dancing with death every other moment,
Finding safety only in your
b a r r e n . e m p t y . h e a r t .
I want to be french kissed on a pirate ship,
Long to be held by fierce and strong but loving arms,
Want to be so close we never separate, and  b r e a k  together;
Need not see you, just to know you are alive...
I can  f e e l   y o u ;
Always there.
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 7 10
Perfect Distance
"What could you possibly have to be sad about?"
Said the source of my sadness...
And so my heart breaks a little more...
And so the devil takes my hand...
And so... It is so. 🌙
An eternity dwells within my heart,
Tangled in steel-encased spiderwebs,
So far from the deep end,
Where all sorrows drown...
As I comb through shadows,
Still trying to find you...
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 6 11
The Afterworld
Every beautiful place in my heart
Is filled with you...
Eyes that shine like fire,
Burning bright,
Behind a veil
Of ice cold night...
Crossing through
The ruins of your heart...
Touching you, reaching,
Down to your cold-blooded soul;
Healing all
That is in my path...
Until the night
When I am finally yours...
Reunited in the afterworld...
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 6 7
The Veil
She's a goddess
That no one believes in anymore...
Wandering the lonely earth,
Sometimes life is only
A series of letdowns,
Letdown after letdown after letdown,
One right after the other...
But she is a spinning galaxy,
Dancing throughout the universe...
She walks the earth as a ghost,
With bristled tail and glowing eyes,
Little whispery wisps of whiskers,
Barely there...
A villainous goddess,
Entreated with silken allure;
Lurking in corners of darkened rooms,
Haunting the fray of madmen's psyches,
She is calling.
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 11 10
The Hunter and The Fox
For me...
There is no sadder sadness,
Nor darker darkness...
Than that of the sacred dance
Between the hunter and the fox;
It's just the knife,
Twisting deeper...
Into my bones.
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 9 7
The Grand Kai
The whole "It's not me, it's you." thing...
It's bullshit.
It is you.
It's always been you.
It'll always be you there,
Dwelling deep inside my heart,
We are always comparing perfection to imperfection...
But what makes something imperfect anyway?
If it has a flaw?
But what even are flaws?
It is also true that something could be perfectly imperfect.
And it has been said many times
That there is no such thing as true perfection.
Yet, we always strive to reach for greater and greater heights.
A symphony of imperfect harmonies.
Harmonic balance.
:iconkalinereine:KalineReine 11 3
Of freshly fallen leaves and dew,
I am more than this mortal world,
Drowning beneath a starry eyed sea...
(You will never see...
What these broken dreams mean to me.)

Updates and help me decide...?

Journal Entry: Mon May 14, 2018, 9:58 AM

Morphie Fox Icon by CherushiMetsumari I had typed up a nice long journal entry to share with you guys, but now I can't even find it, so I had to completely start over, lol... FML

Morphie Fox Icon by CherushiMetsumari I've just gone through a terrible ordeal. I really don't want to talk about it though. Just know that a lot of things have happened recently which I'm sure will continue to affect me for a long time to come. I'm sure a lot of you probably know the struggle.

Morphie Fox Icon by CherushiMetsumari At the moment, my commissions are still closed while I sort some things out. My apologies... I'm just trying to get my life together. I now have an assistant who is helping me with things, so I hope to be able to open them again soon. All of this is temporary. First I have to get over my art block, which means battling the demons in my head for a while until I can figure out how to get back on track with where I was, art-wise. The same goes for writing, but I really am trying.

Morphie Fox Icon by CherushiMetsumari Speaking of which, I've decided that I will most likely no longer be posting updates to my story Shivered Timbers here on DA... I appreciate the attention and feedback that it did get on here, but I don't feel like I have enough readers on DA for me to go through the hassle of coding everything specifically for this site for every single chapter. For those who still want to read it, you can always find it on FFnet (PM me if you'd like a link to it on there) and I might decide to post it on AO3 in the future. I hope you understand. ♥

Morphie Fox Icon by CherushiMetsumari Lastly, I have a bit of good news (maybe)... And something fun for my friends to participate in! Read everything below for full details...

Morphie Fox Icon by CherushiMetsumari My poetry is going to be published soon. But I'm having a hard time deciding how to go about it or which poems exactly should be published and which ones are better left out. I've written over 1500 poems, according to DA. So I've decided that part of the first book will have some Readers' Choice selections included. I'm not sure exactly how many yet, but... This basically means that some of my readers are welcome to go through my gallery and find some of my poems that you really like or have impacted you in some way, and share them with me so I can be sure to put those poems in my book. I'm still going to include my own selections as well for the majority of it, but this is something that I've been thinking about for a while and I thought it would be really cool to let my friends on here let me pick some. You totally don't have to btw, this is just for fun.

Morphie Fox Icon by CherushiMetsumari For your convenience, you can find my poetry in these places:… (VERY Old Poetry)… (Old Poetry 1)… (Old Poetry 2)… (Old Poetry 3)… (Newer but still archived poetry.)… (Main gallery with all my recent stuff.)… (Newest Poetry)

Morphie Fox Icon by CherushiMetsumari If you want to participate in the Readers' Choice... All you need to do is go through my gallery, or use the links provided, link me to your very favorite poem(s) that I've written, and (this last part is optional) tell me why you like it or what made you pick that one in particular. To help me keep things organized, please comment on this journal with your choice(s). You are also free to pick more than one, but try to limit it to only a few, since these are supposed to be your very favorites. c:

Morphie Fox Icon by CherushiMetsumari And actually, you can help by simply voting in this poll:…
(I'm trying to figure out the order in which I should go about this...)

Morphie Fox Icon by CherushiMetsumari I want to thank everyone for your continued support throughout the years. I hope you're all doing well. You guys have made me believe in myself again, you've helped me to see that I can do anything if I try hard enough. I am eternally grateful for everything you have done for me. :heart: I love you all so very much. ;w;

Morphie Fox Icon by CherushiMetsumari I guess that's it for this journal. I really don't have a lot to say this time.

That's fine. And I'm doing okay, decided to lose weight (146lbs) by exercising my dogs. Finally decided to use my dA!
KalineReine Featured By Owner May 29, 2018  Professional Writer
Oh that's awesome! I've been losing weight too, mostly from being sick... But I'm trying to keep it off and keep myself healthy by making better choices when it comes to how I eat. I'm glad you're on DA, sorry I've been absent from Lioden for such a long time, but my life got all kinds of crazy recently and I can't keep up with everything. xD Feel free to send me a note or something, any time. :heart:
