Literature
Invincible
I am a laborer of dreams and I'm building up a pyramid.
The ghosts might try to kill me but I learned to always live with it.
The fragile thoughts that draw you to the edge of your ill mind;
Believe when I say that giving up would be a true crime.
The only thing that you should do is plow ahead forward,
No stepping back because I got your back and that's a foreword
An introductory paragraph to what it means to me,
when I have always told you that we are going to be:

Literature
Rage Against The Machine
You insist that I don't understand--but it's rather clear to me
Your practice lies with tainted hands--your mouth spills sophistry
and I wonder where this practice ends--the director's calling me
A puppet for an angry stand--they call my penalty
And I'm naked in this foreign land--don't have a sanctuary
Protect this all with broken hands--I'll watch you label me!
And I'll live while I am half a man--but you won't cry for me
The machine has got you polished then--it's just a cog you'll be!

Literature
BANG!
Enlarge the scales of life tonight--you'll see I'm without;
Approaching every end in sight--don't ask me about,
The slab that cites this lonely life--it's all a blowout
Machine won't even feel the knife--it's like a blackout!
And here I am in captured strife--it follows me throughout,
It squashes all that comes to life--emotions washout!
The Craftsman tries to take a bite--he cannot holdout
It's premature but he's done tonight--so watch him sell-out
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen
:iconwordofchen:WordOfChen 8 1
Literature
Cold Turkey
I wade through the stream where the world had murdered me,
Strolling through the streets it's the phantom that I be.
Overcharged, supercharged, a ghost you'll never see.
Refer to all the scriptures if you choose to die for me.
Because I quit all the things that'll make my life blind
I quit all the penalties that put my life behind
I quit all the remedies current in my veins;
Hypothesize the meaning of this life filled with pain.

Literature
Mumbling About Me
Planes flying like a fleet...
Hilarious enough to make me fucking weep!
Decorative promises that I keep,
Conductor for a symphony that cuts me deep.
Devote yourself to pain just to keep the pearl,
Depression hits me hard, shutting out the world.
Happy is a myth that I might now create,
Hide my occupation with this inner hate.
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen
:iconwordofchen:WordOfChen 6 1
Literature
A Fraction of Me
I've learned to start living with half a heart,
It's not quite so bad when you've been torn apart.
You learn what's vital and what's deep inside,
You learn to let go of little things like pride.
And you learn to see how little you matter...
And how much others might always matter to you.
So in end I'll learn to live with half a heart--
because my world both starts and ends with you.
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen
:iconwordofchen:WordOfChen 14 1
Literature
Sell Out
My words were like a razor,
cutting the ice from your inner soul.
You might think that you know the saviour,
but your eyes are still dead and cold.
And every time I tried to save ya,
It's not my hand that you wanted hold.
Because your personal pattern of behavior,
Is the one where your soul is sold.
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen
:iconwordofchen:WordOfChen 10 2
Literature
Not Without You
If I had to be honest with you,
this hole inside my heart hurts every single day.
Of course, I can easily pretend that I feel nothing.
I can easily fabricate a 'normal' existence.
But the truth is that the hole is there,
and I doubt it will ever be filled...
(Now read the title)
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen
:iconwordofchen:WordOfChen 22 2
Literature
'Normal'
My meal today was a tad salty,
but I've been doing my best to watch my weight.
I've tried to stock up on the healthy things in life,
but it's difficult to do the things you hate.
Like swallowing the pain and anger inside.
Like putting on a smile because everything's 'alright'.
Like telling somoene else that you're perfectly fine.
While watching another man call that person 'mine'...
-
My meal today was a tad salty I think...
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen
:iconwordofchen:WordOfChen 15 5
Literature
A little bit about her
What was important to me was never her age.
It wasn't the clothes she wore or the shoes she had.
It was simply the way she smiled for me,
the way she giggled and laughed, joked and played.
That was all that she needed to 'mean' to me.
And as for the future, I guess we'll see...
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen
:iconwordofchen:WordOfChen 16 1
Literature
Feeling Lonely Yet?
The train rolls on by,
a hundred bodies slowly swaying.
Each one an entire world away,
but physically only inches apart.
never meeting.
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen
:iconwordofchen:WordOfChen 13 6
Literature
Rainbow's End
Have you ever seen the end of a rainbow?
I have and sadly it's not very pretty!
I mean, if you think about it,
you've gone past seven colours just to get here,
so all that's left for you is the black and grey...
-
Well I personally chased the rainbow that I saw that day,
but when I reached the end--all of my sunshine had faded away...
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen
:iconwordofchen:WordOfChen 13 9
Literature
Kisses to Kings
I see the smile on their faces,
they're happy for real.
Yet I can't be a part of that,
because I simply can't deal.
With the fact that you left us,
You took glory over gain,
And the fact that you betrayed me,
will always be your shame.
So now I sit here coldly,
writing kisses to kings.
All the while tolerating,
the wound in my heart strings.
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen
:iconwordofchen:WordOfChen 22 1
Literature
The Me Inside
To write my thoughts is to write my mind,
because I have enough to feed my psychosis for a lifetime!
And even when you're here with me holding my hand,
It takes all that I have not to scatter like sand.
And I'll blow in the wind like a thousand pieces of me,
Each one an insane fragment of the man that couldn't be.
Who was lost in the wind as his shell lived it's life,
A ghost in the machine, buried in ice.
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen
:iconwordofchen:WordOfChen 21 2
Literature
Refusing Reality
There are times when I might be happy,
but those are few and far between.
I leave myself caught in the embrace of debauchery,
because to face reality is to admit that I am unclean.
And I chase my problems with sex and wine,
Hoping that the haze might never lift.
Because if I were to open my eyes this day.
I would finally see all the life that I've missed.
And that would probably break me...
:iconWordOfChen:WordOfChen
:iconwordofchen:WordOfChen 19 1
Literature
Little Rose
I wished to put my flower,
into a shell of glass.
I wished to keep her forever,
but I knew she would not last.
So instead I would leave her,
in the garden where she was green.
for even if someone picked her,
my heart would remain serene.
"For at least she is free..."

Commissions

Poetry - Free Verse
 Hi there guys, this is the commission tab for Free Verse Poetry. Please remember to note me as well so I can try and find your commission as this is the first time I'm doing this.

Basically I will write you a poem on any topic and if you want it done over an image (as seen in the examples) then you will need to provide me with the base image to use. In which case, note me and I'll give you my email as I cannot use my own image stockpile for commercial works.

As I mentioned, this tab is solely for use on 'Free Verse Poetry' as such you only need to provide me with the core theme or topic. For example if you give me something like: 'Love' I will interpret it in my own way. If however you are more specific, for example giving me something like, 'A romance between a man and a girl he shouldn't love' then obviously I will be able to write something more specific xD

It's up to you how you want me to do this and of course since it is Free Verse and thus the easiest to do, this is the cheapest commission available :)

However please note that 'Epic' poems are not done using this particular tab. You have to use the 'Epic' Poetry request tab as this is for shorter, lighter works.

ADDITION: You can ask for a reading for free! It will be delivered as an mp3 file (^_^)
Poetry Free Verse - Epic!
This tab is specifically for Epic Poetry (Free Verse format).

Due to Epic Poems being longer, I cannot place them on an image. If you want an epic, although it is pure text, due to the longer creation time it is slightly more expensive than 'Free Verse Poetry'.

However, while this tab is specifically for longer works, I also don't run my works on and on, so if you want something that runs on, please do specify that but remember that it'd going to look pretty shoddy if the core theme is simple (i.e. if you just tell me 'Love' and I have to make it epic) xD So try to be as specific as possible with your request :'D

ADDITION: You can ask for a reading for FREE! It will be delivered as an mp3 file (^_^)
Traditional and Fixed Form Poetry
This tab is specifically for traditional and fixed format poems. They are the most expensive as they are extremely restrictive and require the longest creation time. (It is also likely that I will have to LEARN the poem format requested but I shall do my best to fulfill your challenge)

When asking for this type of poem please specify:

- The Form of Poetry I am required to write
- The topic and/or theme of the poem (please be as specific as possible)
- The length of the poem (short, medium or long)
- Whether you want it overlayed on an image (short/medium poems only and you need to provide me with the image)

Thanks :'D

ADDITION: You can ask for a reading for FREE! It will be delivered as an mp3 file (^_^)

So just updating here,

At present my streaming has really started to take off so I'm devoting most of my hours to it after work. I still plan to write poetry and keep up with some of my other youtube projects,but you guys will unfortunately see a lot less of me on DA. I used to write while I was at work too, but my work is unfortunately very busy right now.

Still, I hope you will continue to follow me and I'll be posting things every now and again for you all to enjoy ^_^.

Also as for the Writer Gang there will be an announcement on it tomorrow :') so please look forward to that!

Greetings everyone,

Sorry for not posting much, but in the time I've been away I've gone back to ym rap roots and I've really worked on refining my urban flow to express the concepts that I want to.

P.S. Re-read the poem and say the title once you reach the end ;)

Hope you'll enjoy it!

You insist that I don't understand--but it's rather clear to me
Your practice lies with tainted hands--your mouth spills sophistry
and I wonder where this practice ends--the director's calling me
A puppet for an angry stand--they call my penalty

And I'm naked in this foreign land--don't have a sanctuary
Protect this all with broken hands--I'll watch you label me!
And I'll live while I am half a man--but you won't cry for me

Greetings everyone,

The work week has been insane so I haven't been able to write and create as much as I want, that said, I'm still trying to improve on my mumble rap poetry because I believe the symbolism gives me a great degree of freedom in doing the more angry sociopolitical pieces that I favour over my usual sorrowful works xD

Hope you'll enjoy it!

Enlarge the scales of life tonight--you'll see I'm without;
Approaching every end in sight--don't ask me about,
The slab that cites this lonely life--it's all a blowout
Machine won't even feel the knife--it's like a blackout!

And here I am in captured strife--it follows me throughout,
It squashes all that comes to life--emotions washout!

BANG!
Greetings everyone,

So I'm continuing to experiment with the hard rap style and freedom of word choice that it gives me (especially when everything is literally symbolic) and I notice that my particular style is heavily influenced by my previous experience with acid rap that deals a lot with themes like suicide, murder, depression etc.

Of course none of this is real, so don't worry about me, but the emotions that I put into it are and if they come across in the poem, then I hope you enjoy it.

Greetings everyone,

Continuing the mumble rap style of writing. I think its pretty fun overall. Once again the random words generated by the random word generator are highlighted and this is the poem I came up with using just those words.

And yes, it's about substance abuse :'P

Heyo Chen!
I wrote something and then mentioned your name (in a good way) in the description box below!
Thought you might like checking it out:
Not the TypeYou point out my flaws,
And welcome me to do the same to you,
But I'm not the type of person who likes to do that.
I would rather focus on a person's positive qualities,
Instead of their bad ones.


^w^ I find you have managed to influence my writing style a tad.
Hope you like / don't mind the shout-out!
Thank you for what you write;
My all-time favorite of yours is 'Rest' because it helped me out and reminded me to relax from time to time,
And 'Ha Ha Ha!' because you pointed out the fact about knights in shining armour...
...In a way that I had never thought about before.
