I've seen a lot of art work posted in this section. Lots of great sketches and doodles. The collective creativity of this board is amazing. I too like to draw but I'm also big fan of expressing my creativity through words - whether its a story, a poem, or just random other things. Its a great way to find a release for your emotions. I love exploring all creative outlets.

Here's the point of this thread. I was wondering if anyone had anything they've written that you would care to share in this thread. I learn so much even about myself from reading other people's material and if anyone feels like sharing I think it would be awesome. Then again this thread could get zero repies but at least I tried. ;D

I write a lot ...Only when i have my phases of " inspiration"...I can write 150 pages in a few days, in a sort of transe and write nothing at all in a year...It's very strange...I don't force it, simply because the quality then becomes poor. I prefer to write a first jet that will keep the intensity of how i felt that very moment.

I write poetry, opinions on society ( pamphlets in a way), i wrote some children stories. Most of what i write is based on personal experiences or derived from those.

That's about it.

I write poetry, my feelings and a journal. I write only when I feel depressed... so every 3 days or so ;D. I don't know why but when I'm feeling happy all I write is just shit ::). I only write in french...

Well there certainly appears to be an abundance of writers around here, either that or an abundance of liars claiming to be writers. Because I haven't seen any pieces or samples of your writing. The main purpose of this thread was so I could read more creative pieces by you incredibly interesting people. Of course me being the gentleman I am wouldn't want you to share anything you weren't comfortable with but with the anonymity of the internet why should we be apprehensive?

I've decided to do something about this. I will attempt to open the creative flood gates here. I'm hoping to spawn a revolution among you. A revolution of sharing your creative pieces in this thread. So its a small revolution - it would still be a revolution, kinda. :nervous:

Here's what I'll do, I'll post a poem I wrote recently. I don't have title yet but I wouldn't mind any feedback that you feel like contributing.

Here it goes, I hope you are inspired to post something

I am so pissed off I could cuss at the moon
I am so tired I could fire my own self

Sitting here with the sounds of the day
Reminds me of the tension between us
This life, all this shades of a dark grey
Transform my soul into a cruel cuss

The mornings and nights, always the same
Using my reason to avoid arguments
Feeding the ego of mister shallow vane
Watching myself drown in torment

I look at the moon in hope of an answer
None comes as it’s already in me
I look at the moon after my prayer
None knows of what I see.

The chair turns, I know, nothing to say
Cold eyes meet, sad, it’s already dead
Sharing everything together but our way,
Unhappy to the bone yet never displayed.

I look at the moon in hope of an answer
None comes as it’s already in me
I look at the moon after my prayer
None knows of what I see.

I look at the moon with my prayer
I hope it waits for me
I look at the moon, with my answer
None knows of who I see.
*************************************************


As we sat on our bed, filled with promises,
The wind blew a silent cry above the sea.
You opened my hand with a gentle squeeze
As I watched, all I saw was beauty green.

I’ll never forget your smile that day,
That precious medallion in my hand,
Emerald to protect me, to find my way,
A forever love, worn like a sarabande.

As you went away on that deadly water,
I could feel my heart beat a sinister song.
I tried; oh I tried to be positive and better!
I’d just foreseen the end, something wrong.

I gazed into the emerald for 400 moons
No sign, no return, slowly accepting fate,
Crying at the sea, begging for a soon,
Holding my medallion, I decided to forget.

Oh love, my way found me before I could.
I married the lord tenant out of despair.
Had my dot, had my son, had all he should
And thanked me in pushing me down a stair.

I am now long gone love, and still without you
My son, he whom I never saw, never knew
The medallion fell as I went to my death
It's beauty held my love, my eternal breath.

Here are another few, again, copyrighted ( thank you by the way) :
******************************************

Eternally caught up in time, awaiting
My mind going up the same mountain,
Still engraving the same old marbled stones
Carrying this message through my bones.

Guided or lead restricted faith to live
Showed and told to pass the great lines
Feeling or believing in his angry strife
If I fail to show them how to redefine.

Mount Sinai there, Mount Oreb here
7 mountains to save our frail dynasty
Little cave protecting our people here
Until they find the way I called destiny.

Archaeologists from the entire planet today
Historians with a passion, without Greed
People hurrying up to see without delay
All hoping one day they’ll be freed.

Summer time in the mountains is near
Bodies lie there man and wife side by side
Why is it then now that starts my fear?
When all I should feel should be pride?

History will be changing and people with it
Are they only ready to redirect their ways?
Why do I haunt until they finally find it
Isn’t it the way to answer their prayers?

Guided or lead restricted faith to live
Showed and told to pass the great lines
Feeling or believing in his angry strife
If I fail to show them how to redefine.

A piece of a loved one so long gone
All that's left is hope for our people
All that’s there is the only evidence
Why did I write ten marbles?
******************************************************

The look in your eyes asking me
Always popping the same question
Trying to blind my sad memory
Never asking about my opinion

I want to melt inside your thoughts
Understand the hidden betrayal
Freak to the invisibles I fought
I want too see you be disloyal

One smile for ten knifes
One kiss for 1000 wives
One word to say sorry
One tear for infidelity

If I could only find those words
That courage to close this door
Just slit your heart with a sword
Throw the pieces of you ashore.

Find the truth to set myself free
Cry a lot until there is no more
Leave all my past behind me
And finally close that door.

One smile for ten knifes
One kiss for 1000 wives
One word to say sorry
One tear for infidelity
*************************************************

Days of thunder, revenge so bitter
My love has gone , torn into pieces
The world will crumble to my shatter
And forget about ancient deities.

My husband, picking you bit by bit
Egypt is a not big enough for love
A whole life for my craving only legit
You’ll come back and I’ll be mother

They shall crawl towards their queen
You’ll live and through him my fist
You memory never forgotten you Sun
Thunder tears the skys, it’s you I miss

In eternity they’ll pay the price of their deed
We’ll be one for as long as my soul wonders
Until maybe the key unlocks that atrocious lid
Until we find another way to be one forever.

*************************************************

I see the world and the wonders of an earth always blue
I hear the beauty, the sounds of nature, and the sun shines.
I despair to what we’ve done, we’re falling through
I cry to the sounds of the machinery we’ve called mines.

I love to see a kid’s first step, falling, and up again, always
Walking by the seaside and just closing my eyes to the sound.
These are the marvels I cannot live without, these are my ways
What we’re doing to ourselves hurt me deeper than any wound.

World of beauty, with sound or silence, world of eternal peace
Planet of goals and dreams, lands of green pastures and love.
Man fools himself, consumes any piece of pride, for greed
Will we remember who we were, from the skies above?
********************************************************

After painful memories and cries
After finally deciding to change it all
After shouting my anger away
There comes the night for a last fall

Intoxicated by this growing pain
Infuriated by the dirtiest of all, fate
Anguished to the thought of all in vain
There I now lie helpless in my bed

Quitting the strong attitude for once
Leaving my arrogance away in sorrow
Trying to understand this last dance
And why there might no be a tomorrow.

Helping myself with words today
Those same words I cannot hear
These little letters to give me delay
The same ones I run from out of fear

One can be a sheep and a coward
Was it worth all the courage after all?
All it takes is a “god did a fast forward”
And suddenly, a life is erased, total.

Pain grows in the night, I can’t sleep
It’s there at day and all I do is weep
I hope god is there with me today
I want to live another year.

  • Ive been in Scott's pants. You think I joke?
The questions remain the same
but the answers I cant explain
Search the stars
to reach my nirvana
or just to soak the good karma

Should I conform to society
or take the path of piety
whos to say whats right
or whats wrong
we are all on this flight
thats too long

The day leaves in a race
the darkness is my solace
the absence of light
sends my mind aflight
No outside stimulation
or chaotic comotion
puts the thoughts in
slow motion

Is she will she
Had I been lying to myself
put my feelings ont the shelf
only to be tossed at a later date
guess i was screwed before
stood in line
only to be thrown
on the cold lonely floor
Then the tide went out
and left it on the shore
what I was missing and had ignored
Is she will She
I put my feelings out there
Now it is clear
What is there is there
The end is coming near
to a story yet untold
Not known what the future might hold
Is she will she
