For countless years, I fought the fight, I struggled hard into the night, But then I found the battle’s end Where blood runs fast and gashes mend, Where love surrounds and feeds the soul No longer bearing war-torn toil.

DFC 2018: 18. Disdain

My fingertips have claimed the air As desperately I wished to know Why every time I smiled she'd show Disdain, disgust but never care, Why laughing made her want to scream! And hatred met her scornful face As if she wished she could replace, Mistakes she made, her stolen dream.

DFC 2018: 17. Raucous

Her raucous laughter is a curse, It cuts my ears with its perverse Melodic sound that pounds and pounds, Crushing flesh and splitting bone, Yet no one seems to find her tone Upsetting as it shakes my ground, She smashes silence with delight, Assassin hiding in the light, Eroding sanity with stone.

DFC 2018: 14. Derelict

The mothballs cannot save this place, A derelict and frightful sight With windows black as winter's night And clutter coating every space, One cannot see her once proud face: The ballroom where all danced delight, Where lovers held their partners tight, Lost in lustful soul's embrace, The gilded palace once in view Had violence storm and rampage through So naught was left but bare bones picked, Demise by way of class conflict, Yet though she was cut down by coup: One day she will stand tall – renewed.

When will these bells that toll desist? They will not give me peace! Their heartfelt throng, a sound most wrong, the ringing will not cease! Then carollers with broken tone will not leave me alone! I wish that I, for just one night, had ears sculpted from stone. The blinking lights that flash all night, are burned into my brain, And with each flash, I humbly ask: Has this world gone insane? The crowds surround and beat the ground, their chaos slowing time, I must get free, please let me leave, must douse myself in wine. And what is this, “sweet Christmas bliss”, but one quick way to sell, A dream that most, can’t hope to

Our Lives Are Worth The Same As Yours

Our Lives Are Worth The Same As Yours

Hearts beat true beneath the sun, Its rays cascade ‘cross lovers’ backs No one could break their gleeful gaze, A rainbow dance they share for days Where one soul ends, the other meets, Matching fingers, hands and feet And as these people hold their hearts Above the scorn that deems them part, One statement shall resound this dawn: Our lives are worth the same as yours. Dark hands are raised into the light, As marching figures walk their fight, No shadow can delay their siege, They shall not bow before a liege, Listen to their heartfelt cries! There are no tricks, there’s no disguise, And as they step across this ground, Mor

DFC 2015: 1. Outliving Fear

When darkness rips away her joy With claws that flay and deftly tear, Her bones and sinew are laid bare As lifeless as a tattered toy, Her heartbeat gently pulses quick Beneath that skin like porcelain, Each slash breeds more adrenaline As palms grow slick and breath constricts, Her eyes see nothing but the pain, Her very sanity is slain, But as she clutches onto hope And feels the fibres of her rope, She knows that daylight’s face is near Which means she will outlive the fear.

Rose and the Compass

Rose and the Compass

Rose held the compass in her hand, She did not know this foreign land, She’d walked so far, she could not stand, Where was that man? Where was that man? And in the distance – silhouettes, She panicked, feeling quick regret But she was weary, soiled and wet, The figures met, the figures met. Her body trembled as the sky Changed drastically before her eyes, No warning ‘fore the blackest night, “Can I still fight?” “Can I still fight?” A pap’ry cloth was placed in hand With subtle grains of soil and sand, “What is this?” Rose did so demand, “It is the plan”, “It is

My Bio
Hey guys! I'm Sam a.k.a kiwi-damnation.

I am a massage therapist by day and artist by night. I love to create in many different ways and especially enjoy the incredible world of fixed form poetry. I run a group ProjectDFC devoted to preserving the art of fixed form poetry and bringing you all along for the ride.

Seriously though, I love dA and all it represents and I look forward to reading/gazing upon all of your art. You all amaze me. Thank you for the privilege of sharing this journey with you.

Aaaaand you can find my photography on kiwi-damnation-stock
