Old Poems 5 - Emo
I want to be alone
I don't want to be alone
with the monster in my chest.
A sound downstairs
they're talking again
it hates the sound of people talking
the monster roars.
There are words
I can't hold them in anymore
overflowing, like water left in the freezer
the bottle cracks
the monster squirms anxiously
it wants out.
everything is blurry
I hate the feeling of crying
sitting on the bed
the monster starts pacing again
aching for freedom or blood, I don't know.
like a lion at the zoo
behind the iron bars of my timidness
isn't there a way to let it out?
on the floor of my messy room
among books and papers
a book
black, with gold-trimmed pages
the monster growls, and pounces
as my pencil skitters across the
blank pages
The writing leaves me empty
not a sad feeling
but the kind when I'm not about to explode
a bomb that's been disarmed.
The monster purrs, content
with its new home on the
pages of my black book
for now.

Old Poems 4 - Who? Who knows.
I wake.
The sun dies
in a sky
stained with blood.
The blood of
my prey.
I am emperor.
A fearsome king.
From my throne -
the blackened heavens -
I watch
my silent kingdom.
Sleep, my subjects,
or find
that death flies
on white wings.

How to Write Villanelles
           Villanelles can be quite discouraging; they look simple but are actually quite difficult. However, when mastered, it becomes “technically easy” according to Conrad Geller.  Just like riding a bike, right?  The name Villanelle is derived from the Italian villa, or country house, which is where aristocrats went to “refresh” themselves.  Strangely enough, the form is originally French and only appeared in the English language in the lat 1800s (19th century).  Out of the 19 lines in a Villanelle, only two rhymes are used.  Furthermore, two lines repeat throughout the poem; usually the first and last lines of the first stanza are repeated interchangeably throughout the second, third, fourth, and fifth stanzas (starting with the first line of the first stanza) until the last stanza where both are repeated in the same stanza.

Personal Quote: You laugh like you think I'm kidding....
Well, I'm back! Sorry for the lack of activity. I know it's been a few weeks, but I've just been doing other thing. I'm working on some character stuff for yet another project that will probably never see the light of day butatleastit'sscriptedthistimesowhatever.

Anyhoo, I'm still working on Radiant Omen, but I'm taking a bit of a break so I don't burn out. I'll probably be back to that in a few weeks, hehe.

Also started working on a reference sheet or two, because I like don't have any. T_T So I'll get back to people on art trades when that's done. Sorry. ^^;

I was going to draw you all (my watchers) something for Christmas, but when I asked what everyone wanted, I got like no response, so.

Hello StarRaven. Your Brushes are fantastic, I would like to use them for a fantasy book's map. May I have your permission?

Hi StarRaven...I love your sketch cartography brushes. I'm currently in the process of writing a fantasy novel, and I'd love to use them for a map to put in the front of the book. I wanted to make sure I asked your permission, first. May I use them? Thanks!
