New poems, story and premium content this week!



Updates made to SUPPORT section, LOVE section and SPREAD section. Also check out details for my facebook account ^^



------------------------------------------

News Section:



Alright mates,

Been another long break due to all this job searching stuff and quite frankly I've got more of that coming up next week, but this week is the last round of applications and therefore it'll be more about the interviews and such in the days to come. Hence I should have a little bit more time for writing, as and when I can at least ^^.

THAT SAID, TONIGHT I SHALL BE RELEASING SOMETHING NEW FOR ALL OF YOU! ORAAAA!

In addition to that this week, I'm hoping to release the first part of 'Live With Me', my first attempt at a sci-fi story. As well as a few poems I've written while being on the break.

For those of you who want to keep up with my Zany-antics OUTSIDE of DA, come join my facebook page here: www.facebook.com/WordOfChen

Also you can come find me on NEOPETS! Yes I am playing a children's game because it is hilarious and soothing when you're stressed out lol.

Also, don't forget to fave my uncle's pictures for the Lara Croft competition, they worked hard on these models (all 3D):

Tomb Raider Reborn: Lara Shootout - Close-Up by AOGRAI

Lastly, crew bounties are being awarded in a section at the very end of the journal ^^ AND I will do a new crew prompt tomorrow.

LOVE THE WORD!



...as these people have done...

For the poem "We Poets Are Frustrated" - We Poets Are Frustrated...We Poets Are Frustrated...
I am sure that you have all experienced this feeling:
A masterpiece eclipsed by the baying of a brat!
A raucous rhyme, so emotionally raw;
Shadowed by a child's melancholia...
Alone in the darkness, you lick your lips and growl.
Your anger, so evidently understandable; yet you forget your own abilities!
In despair, my dearest sibling, you have forgotten — yourself
Why fear an obstacle so easily overcome?
Why shred your works with such heavy tears?
Have you forgotten that we are the original craftsman?
Our tongues birthed as our chisels and axe!
We need only take these simple themes
And corrupt them with all our twisted fears...
This hatred inside of you, this bubble of frustration and anxiety —
Let it swell like a pus-filled abscess of anger!
And with your words unleash this vicarious plague!
Take the unblemished works that have scorned you,
And inject them with the very darkness of your soul!
Let bleeding lips,


The following individuals have won a feature:

:iconartlover435: A young poet with quite a variety of works in her gallery. As thanks for showing support on my work, she will be featured here along with some of her works that I've enjoyed ^^. It really is quite worth it to check her out. I've featured some extracts from her gallery:

The ghosts and demonsWalking down the darkened hall
I hear their screams
I hear their call
They moan and hiss
amongst my ear
But all i do is stare in fear
Crawling down into the blankets
All I say is
"I hope I make it"
Because the demons walk about
Screaming and yelling
Oh how they shout!
Back to hell
where they dwell
Back to the tomb
and away from my room
Walking down the darkened hall
I see a face on the reddened wall
Drawn in wicked black
The devil's eyes stare me back
InvisibleYou say I'm here
But yet in public
You talk about me
as if i wasn't
The doctor says my heart beats
But you don't think so
You act as if it doesn't
and that it won't break
when you say stuff about me
They all say I'm not invisible
But then talk behind my back
thinking i can't hear
I see
I hear
I feel
But I'm still invisible
HeavenI know a place
where there are golden gates
and the pavement is clouds
I know a place
where the people have wings
and they watch over us
I know a place
where god lives
and his son helps
I know a place
where our love ones go
and live in paradise
I know a place
called Heaven


:icondagmargrip: A young artist who's been on DA for about 2 months. She's got some pretty interesting artwork in her gallery, it appealed to me and of course this is thanks for her faving my work ^^ Come check em out!

:icontikkanii: A varied artist from Canada she apparently does cosplay and goes to a con every year...or at least that's what her page says. Overall she's got some cool art and as thanks for her faving my work, I'll be featuring some of her art here. CHECK IT OUT!

:thumb346275486::thumb342767888::thumb347509191:

:iconrustnsplinters: An artist who apparently adores the word 'FUCK' has nonetheless won a feature for faving my work. Of course, I'd like to state that several of her pieces are really nice and while I'm more of a classy sadism kind of guy, raw fury and anger can also be appealing under the right circumstances. Please check out some of her works here:

Featured Support Items - Dark Sadistic Muse:Dark Sadistic Muse:
I seat myself before the computer,
With fingers poised over fading keys.
Eagerly awaiting my latest epic;
Yet frozen by a lack of inspiration.
Here I sit, staring at the blank document.
The dark background mirroring the world behind me.
I swallow hard as my body locks;
Hairs tense as I sense her arrival...
Slender fingers soon wrap themselves around my throat.
With claw-like nails digging in painfully,
They prick the skin that lies just beneath my Adam’s apple;
Leaving me nursing a rather painful necklace.
"Your hands aren't moving," she coos softly,
Her clawed fingers gently stroking my chin.
"Why is that, I wonder?" she asks with a grin.
Her expression reveals a pair of pointed canines,
Both framed by lips as seductive as sin.
"I'm sorry my lady", I whisper in reply.
The excuse tumbles slowly from a paralyzed tongue.
"I have had no inspiration you see;
No dreams with which I am able to write."
She laughs at this; cruel and cold,
Tossing me from
These Hands Are So Red...These Hands Are So Red...
These hands are now red and so slicked with this blood,
I can't even wash it in a basin of mud...
As I scrape at the skin of those demons I chase,
I am left with a smile mixed with pain on my face.
Since I swore I would savour this blatant disgrace,
Let perversion be writ in these scars I will trace.
From the tip of my shoulders to the base of my tongue,
Are the names of those sleepers so cold and so young...

Alright ye scurvy lot, have ye been doin' ye art properly? I hope ye have cause I'm awardin' bounties. The followin' individuals have earned somethin'

:iconanunfoldedpapertiger: for the following pieces: A New StreakBlades of light glimmer off the mist,
Swirling in the autumn breeze.
Leaves drift off the light wind,
Brushing against my face.
I exhale, taking in the air around
The forest where I sit.
The crack of a twig
Snapping in the distance.
My eyes fly open, my hand to my sword.
The blade gleams in the mid-day sun.
I am ready to defend my sacred oath.
I leap from the stone steps. I rest
Atop the temple I guard with
Constant vigilance.
I turn my head, scanning the trees
To the left of me. I see a silhouette
Moving in the distance.
I crouch, laying low to the ground,
Listening for the footsteps of
My target. I see him, watching the forest
As intently as I. He stops, wandering to a berry bush.
At last, my chance arrives.
I scale a nearby arbolian guardian in haste.
My clutch of the weapon enhances.
As my shadow looms over him, I wonder
What good will it do to attack?
To maim? To kill another of hundreds?
I remember my order. The holiest of jobs
From the last of my tribe. The last
Of my people.

Beautifully horrific. The only words that would grace Ellen's broken mind as the world caressed her behind its mask of mockery were those of such graceful contradiction. An elegant oxymoron that spoke so much with so little.
Ellen knew of art; she had blessed the world with masterpieces ranging to the grandeur of creation to the minuscule life of a lone organism. Her brush staining the canvas with a  surfeit abundance of tints and tones inspired all that watched her expertise show. The rising sun over the green hills of her home; the endless expanse of twinkling dynamos and streaks of light that cut through the sky; or the falling tears of those of a higher plane, weeping with the maiden over her past transgressions, mistakes and regrets. This was Ellen's stronghold, her fortress of unimpeachable solitude. And she was happy.
But Ellen also knew of horror. She was an apprentice in forensic anthropology. Death was natural to her; it was second nature. Images of scattered bones stained wi

To Geneva and Back
The hollow shaft of the cell was filled once again with the dull din of water colliding with cobblestone. The terra walls of his prison resounded with the ambient rotting of the moss hanging from the grating, another precious drop of liquid falling to the floor just as the last resounding pitch died in flight.
Through the disheveled strands of his brunette bristles, he watched with slitted eyes as the water continued to fall from the bars above as it dampened the tainted floor below. His arms hung listlessly across his knees, his muscles lost somewhere between apathy and anger as the dull sounding of collision kept him concourse.
His chest heaved with the intake of the dank air of the cell, the man lifting his head to greet the scarce slivers of sunlight that broke through the bars of the grating overhead. Another droplet slipped from its steel bonds, capturing a stray strand of glimmering luminescence as it fell back to the earth with its brothers. A trifecta

:icondiluculi: has once again earned a plethora of bounties on the following works: 91. DrownThe dark water caresses my feet
Its cold takes away my body heat
All the feelings it washes away
So they won't bother me another day.
In the dark water I will be save
Protected from harm by every wave.
I heard your siren-like song
Calling me home where I belong
The song of the deep
The song of the sea
The dark water is surrounding me
As I succumb to the endless sea.
As the waves close over my head
I started floating, gravity's dead.
Don't cry for me, don't shed a tear
For I just went home, it's all so clear.
I followed the siren-like song
Leading me home where I belong
The song of the deep
The song of the sea
My hurting lungs want to gasp for air,
With fading vision, I see my last breath
Rising to the surface of my watery grave.
Blood desperatly pounds im my ears,
Beating the rythm to the song I hear
The song of the deep
The song of the sea
The song of death waiting for me
RetributionA black stripe covers the sky
A dark storm is approaching fast
Trouble is brewing, danger in delay
Soon deep night will fall during midday
Old quarrels erupt from the past
New hate's born from truths awry
The only light's a red glow
Like of the inky sky a threat
Getting brighter and brighter until
For a short moment, the world stands still
Then the sky is burning crimson red
And burning stars fall like snow
Dies irae dies illa
solvet saeculum in favilla

The world is consumed by fire
Burning winds roll across the lands
The water becomes the blood of dead
On the scorched earth hungry flames do spread
The glaring light shines through our hands
No salvation from straits dire
Horae irae horae illa
solvent saeculum in favilla

"Oh God almighty, save me
From this. Have mercy on me, please!
What have I done to deserve this fate?"
People start praying but it's too late.
My revenge nothing can appease.
No remorse, no prayer from thee.
Facta illa facta irae
Hic tempus ultiones mea
Riddle 9My new riddle your brain will tease
Or can you solve this one with ease?
I'm the fact you cannot deny
And no matter how hard you try
I'm always walking at your side
And find you wherever you hide.
Simply seeing me leaves a trace
I am brutal, I am full of grace
War and peace mean nothing to me
And From me you can never flee
Often wished on others instead,
I'm the one justice you do dread
For to me, you're all the same.
Now, can you guess my name?
Dear DeathDeath, your schedules are a mess
And your timing nonetheless
You touch people I care
About but one you keep to spare
The one who's in coma for weeks
With pale skin and hollow cheeks.
But still lifeless sleep blocks
Not all the epileptic shocks.
Death, why don't you end this pain?
Even if she wakes again
A fighter she's not
The drugs and pills are all she's got.
While she hovers life goes on
Her husband tries to be strong
To prepare a life
He has to live without his wife
Death, your delay gives me hell
She is merely more than a shell
The muscles decrease
Is it selfish to ask for peace?
A Sea FightIt followed our way for sev'ral days
Slowly drew closer, hot on our trails
We didn't know 'till Co-Captain Hayes
commanded  to strike all of the sails
Then ev'ry crew mate saw who's behind
A ship of the Navy, but it was maligned
Before they could fire, our cannons spoke
With a loud thunder and a pile of smoke
The cannon ball flew and did not miss
Some hit the masts and others the hull
They fired back but a pity was this
Each of their shots in the end was null
Still they didn't heave to and steered the course
We awaited them with drawn weapons of course
They would never board our ship, our home
But end in a grave beneath the sea's foame
The ships adjoined, we're ready to board
The enemy ship within no time.
"Who kills Chenbeard gets a reward",
The bold navy captain's voice did chime.
We laughed in return: "Try if you can!"
And boarded their ship, a fierce battle began
The soldiers fought bravely, I confess
Still in this battle they had no success
Even their captain did join the fig
Winter BluesA blanket fallen from the clouds
Covers the land as snow falls down,
So white, white as a wedding gown,
White, white as the burial shrouds.
The firs wear coats made of snow,
The solemn silence like mist soars
To mountain tops from valley floors,
Silence of graves does follow.
Lonely cart tracks slowly fade,
Now they only lead to nowhere,
Their origin is no longer there,
Soon they are but a white shade
A blanket fallen from the sky
Covers the peaceful land below
With the innocently white snow
Comes the cold that lets us die.

The total amount is 7,000 gems!  bringing her total up to 328,500 gems

If anyone has bounties, send me a list t' claim em and don't ferget t' check out th' winnin' works ^^
