Outside (a 232-word poem)
Outside these events, as they unfold, my life was in and of itself, getting old.
Outside working hard, to earn one’s keep, felt like I’d only count the days, maybe sleep,
Only time would tell, if I would swim, or sink into a penniless fate most grim.
Outside holidays, that tend to rise, were everydays and gray routines in my eyes.
Outside my window shine highway lights,they signal yet another day-gone; -night.
Outside loneliness, there wasn’t much, a social life might not always feel as such.
Outside college life, I think I’m free, and yet lacked something that I used to be.
Outside family, it could be worse, but comfort needs another’s mercy – a curse.
Outside media, it’s all so real, I know sometimes the pressure is hard to feel.
Outside of our love, what remains?
Outside giving up, we can’t return, there’s only forward, on your way, So I’ve learned.
Once a day: just smile, there’s always hope, if you try, yo

Why Must We Fight?
Sunrise.
I see the skies
you designed on Powerpoint.
Why must we fight?
And I wait
Running late
My fate throbbing in my joints
Why must we fight?
I know we haven't always seen eye to eye
And I'm not always who you want me to be
But I have more to say than just hateful cries,
Do you love me?
Why can't we just say all these things we have to say?
This reverie of harmony will never set us free.
To smash this glass ceiling in heaven standing in our way
At sunrise.
I'm lost.
I'm lost,
I'm running from the cost
Of a losing bet.
It's not fair!
It's not fair...
Hurts like a thousand nightmares
Of your silhouette.
Sunrise
Knighted and chastized
Upon old wounds annointed.
My final stand, I'll never know
Why must we fight?

Chessboard Serenade
Funny how it all aligns;
a chessboard sets at dusk.
You are my queen,
commanding all,
free to go anywhere;
standing by me.
Read my moves between the lines--
this wooden heart has dawned.
You made me king
behind these walls,
but it just isn't fair;
You could be free!
In white and black,
these fractured hearts
Apart they cry
By checkered grids.
Like kids we rhyme,
The time we fill,
Until the day
We may unite.
Funny how it all aligns;
a chessboard sets at dusk...
You are my queen,
even if you fall.
Free to go anywhere,
just you and me.

Romantic Thriller (Prompt: Love)
Together, we're an opened script
From your romantic thriller—
Chased all through the night
With all we treasure; turn the page —
We kiss, a duet; turn the page... 
Such passion—
Gunshot!
turn the page—! 
 
What shall we write tomorrow?

Your Voice
We all have a voice in our hearts, to be sure!
It cries should we ever feel lonely, 
It sings Ode to Joy when it tastes the allure—
The one that we feel is our only. 
We all have a voice in our minds, don't you know?
It screams that the heart must be bonkers!
Both wronging the rights, turning high into low—
Through doubts—it divides 'til it conquers.
We all have a voice in our souls, deep inside. 
It reads what the other is feeling.
It sees who we are;
Does our rush
Coincide?
So far, 
Your dear crush
Ain't revealing!
We all have a voice, in a cage, in the dark
Sealed up so the others won't fear it. 
Don't hide it! I know you're afraid of it's bark—
But we all have this voice
Just for that one to hear it.

The Folklorian Magician 5: Athens
And down the labyrinth our hero fell.
Long gone were man and woman from the Earth,
Remain'd uranium across this hell;
(At least Zamos could get his money's worth.) 
A shadow crept along the ruin'd hall
And follow'd him across the eerie mud,
When Zamos turn'd around - no one at all...
"Pursue the path of dung..." Whisper'd the blood.
He went --- and in the darkness he was struck!
His rear was gor'd by future bull machine! 
The warlock call'd the sands - but had no luck ---
The minotaur had almost ax'd him clean! 
The fight went on until the wand unleash'd
When Zamos zapp'd the bull to magic quiche.

Joshua's Twilight
I wake to hellish noise in disarray
The heavens - full of clouds of respite thin
What rapture of cold water on my chin
It's hotter than the devil out today!
The morning starts with nightmare debts to pay
It's not a way for daydreams to begin
Tonight, is my one chance, I feel, to win
Tomorrow I would wish this fate away.
So how, dear Lord, this present day ye judge?
Are thee to damn the day into the night?
Thine life belongs to all, thine faith - for some?
I promise, lord, that I won't bear a grudge
Thou giveth mercy long prior to might
But have we what it takes to overcome?

Predictions
The loud laughter
The call to be a thief in the sky!
A handkerchief, bearing on a whimsy --
The cat, and it’s cool place.
The laughing in the dark
Will not make them happy.
Now January and I Fight for freedom
Of the world, in the world, for the world.
A little more salt to the point,
This hot summer, You and I have no choice
But to be a team,
but will it fit for the other world?
I mostly just wanted to say
I know you have been busy
But I hope you’re doing well…
Please,
I hope you're doing well.

The Faceless And The Scarred Ch. 8
Chapter eight - A World Keeps Turning.
Late that night, at the ungodliest hour, the black carriage clip-clopped out of Sh'ol's dreary, shadowy ghetto, and slowly crossed the Manhattan Bridge back into the streets of New York. A most strange path indeed, given it was not the way either of them came in.
There were more cars on the streets now then there were before, even this late past the witching hour, but the few drivers around them switched lanes without thinking, much less noticing that they made way for the coachman and his four horses. Inside the carriage, Gary and Penelope sat across from each other in uncomfortable silence.
"So..." Gary tried to break the tension. He breathed once more into his inhaler in Lieu of something to say. 
"..." Penelope remained silent, letting out one-third of a sigh, as something was clearly on her mind, but she couldn't say it in front of him.
"Care to explain how this hap--!" Gary began to inq

Asteroids
Across the freckled night sky,
I am a falling star.
Make a wish
and I will grant it,
though I seem so far.
You sit there in the car park
and eye the city street.
Wallowing
in what self pity
gnaws upon your feet.
Beyond your orbit, somewhere,
the universe aligns.
Battering
the asteroids down,
should they cross the line.
We're like twin comets, mid-drift,
just trying to collide.
How we burn
to hear the same
three words we feel inside!
Across the freckled night sky
I am a falling star.
Make a wish
while I disintegrate
And break
apart.

The Words You Need To Hear (Hope/Strength)
There's still a cause to hope.
You can't ignore the voice that screams:
"You missed your chance",
No matter who tells you that
-- I think you can do it,
And who would you rather believe?
It seems impossible,
Yet in the grand scheme of things
This great cosmic order remains.
And you might be convinced that
The chaos will pick on you once more,
Or at least until
You'll learn to love yourself for real,
So just try to let it go.
Hating your life is easy
It's okay to be afraid.
Much happier days await you.
So just keep going,
In the middle of the night.
A brand-new dawn will break
And it's time to wake up.
A precious reverie lingers
Until you rest your eyes tonight, as
You'll show your inner strength
(Now read the lines from bottom to top)

Literature
In Search of Dystopia
My life is mine to live.
Silence is yours to give.
I know I can't be my own boss,
But your horizon won't set me free
Whatever becomes of these roads we cross
Please, don't ever leave me.
I have so much time to kill, and you are my knife.
I have a whole world to burn, with you as my match.
Who knows what I'll eat in a fruitless life
Who knows what I'll hunt when there's always a catch.
But there was never an angle with you, was there?
Never a skeleton unaware?
I have everything to lose, but you have all you can get
So why is it that around you I fret?
Why do I fret that these tears you will toss
Away with your antipathetic debris?
Why does our bond taste like rust and moss?
Still, don't ever leave me.

Belated Eulogy
Do you remember
that cold December evening, when I cried looking for you?
I feel those tears burning again, sometimes, out of the blue.
Our days were finite, someone should have told me
even if, deep-down, I knew.
Another sunrise.
You'd look into my eyes, with youth I'd never get to see
if you and I had never met, and fought to set you free.
I gave you life, but you gave so much love and something new
to cherish for eternity.
I'll cherish you for all eternity.

My poems stem from a delicate heart and soul, coupled with a brain that thinks far too deeply into things. and a whimsical smile.
As of late I have given a lot of investment to my feelings, and the story they wish to tell, I evolve. With rhythm and words, with every day, every word, and every muse.

Thank You!

Regarding Lit Commissions


REGARDING LIT COMMISSIONS...
(summer, 2018)

While presently I'm not actively searching for commissions, you are certainly welcome to bring up any requests to commission me to the table. I try to be open minded about things and if your commission request is doable and interesting enough, I might take you up on it!
Below is a short list of my creative My Do's & Don'ts:

I would do:
MEDIUM. I can write Poetry (structured, concrete or free-verse), songs lyrics, flash fiction, Short Stories, Fleshing out your OC and their bio, story consultation, letter articulation, and more.

FAVORITE GENRES. Emotional, Fantasy, supernatural, Slice of Life, contemporary, Humor (including parody), Romantic, Historical, horror (but nothing that's actually terrifying!). Rule of thumb - I like lots of subtext.

For anything else: talk to me, we'll negotiate.


I would NOT do:
ANYTHING NSFW. people that I know IRL read what I write, including some that are underage. if NSFW stories is all you want, find someone else to write it for you, thank you and goodbye.

ARTWORK. My drawing is horrendous, I'm doing your wallet a favor.

LARGE PROJECTS: I fear strongly of biting off more than I can chew during my career as a student, so I gotta limit commissions to up to 1,200 words.

*PRICES:*
Talk to me first, I'll see if I can get you a good deal. we'll discuss payment methods and sums as we discuss the rest of the commission.

FOR MORE INFORMATION - send me a note!

If I explore writing stuff I don't typically write, would you like it more or less than my usual work?

OPENING UP LITERATURE COMISSIONSHi everyone! My name is Nathan, AKA :iconPrinceZahn: PrinceZahn  . I see some free time in my future so I think it's a good opportunity to practice writing on demand. I take pride in my extensive vocabulary and patience when working with people, and will write poetry, song lyrics, and short stories and dabble in fan-fiction once in a blue moon. I especially offer my services to those who know what they want to say but can't quite put it into words. I accept points.

*Genres: Emotional, Comedy, Romantic, Slice of life, Fantasy (Particularly Medieval, modern, and "Gaslamp" fantasy,), worldly folklore, gothic horror (but nothing TOO scary) animals and Nature, historical (Western History), Supernatural/magic, Supeheroes(though my knowledge of them has gaps)

Just tell me in your request: what you want the poem to be about? Are there any particular theme(s) you want me to focus on? Do you want it to rhyme? what other details and context you feel could make the poem what you want it to be? the more detailed the request, the more likely your work will come out how you want it to.

(Prompt challenge below)
Hey all! glad to see everyone again!

these last 3 weeks or so, I've been licking my wounds from a really intense exam season. I'm pleased to say that I did rather well for a first year college student, haha!

As I promised, my inbox was nuked, but it's refilling itself rapidly! I will still stress that I can't keep up with it's pace so please - don't take it personally if I haven't read your work, please! if there is something you feel is important that I see, I welcome you to send me a link to it via notes, so that I don't miss it!

I bought a copy of Ready Player One, which I hope to read before I have to go back to college in October. I heard it's a great book so I hope I can get behind it :D

I've also been spending my weekends watching My Hero Academia. If you don't watch it, I strongly recommend it as an shounen anime that plays on un-shounen-y tropes. if you do watch it, my fave character is Ochaco, who's yours??? I love this show too much but it makes me so happy to watch!

I want to get more writing done this summer, too, so I'm hosting a 2nd PROMPT CHALLENGE!

Sorry, I don't. I have quite a few people who know me personally who read what I write, so I don't write anything NSFW.
