You try pin me
With your gilded letters,
And cover me
With your vocabulary words,
But I can sew my own clothes,
And I will not be
So easily
Defined.
Don't Worry, Hester, They Got Me Wrong Too.
This is poem 8 for NaPoWriMo 2015. (I haven't posted 7 yet, because I'm revising it.) I'm soooooooo behind with this whole business. Whatever.

Oh, this is cute.
You really think
That you're good enough
To be telling me
The best way
To express myself?

Calm down.
I, like,
Went to fucking art school.
Not To Be A Snob, But
NaPoWriMo2015 - poem 6. Okay, so maybe I am a snob. I just very rarely find wording suggestions helpful, and this one critique I got recently really got under my skin, because the person totally missed my imagery, and so they kept saying my word choice was weird.

I need to stop writing for today. My last 2 poems were basically fancy statuses. Feel free to tell me that. Just don't tell me that I didn't choose my words right. :iconsighingplz: I'm just irritated and in a mood to write.

Maybe I am meant
To only sing
Other people's hearts,
And keep my own
Contained in
Back-shelf memoirs,
Not to see the light,
Let alone reverberate
Into waiting hands
Performed from a stage.
Am I Meant to Sing?
Poem 5 of NaPoWriMo2015. Still feeling meh about my lyric writing skills. to be honest, I don't even like this poem so much. It's just what I'm feeling right now. I feel painfully unoriginal and not very innovative at the moment. Oh well. At least I have 1 less poem to write for the month.

I feel empty and depleted.
I am drained and so defeated.
I have nothing left.
It seems my heart wasn't enough.
Days are years with little sleeping
You say my character is steeping.
I have bled to fill
Your fountain pens. Dissect me again.

I'm burning out.
Back away.
I need space.
I need oxygen.
If you want the truth
Then start listening,
Because I can't scream much louder.

You have asked too much
And I'm drying up.
I'm reduced to embers.
But if you would just leave
Me room to breathe,
Then maybe I could recover.

I'm burning out.
Back away.
I need space.
I need oxygen.
If you want the truth
Then start listening,
Because I can't scream much louder.

You have held me down,
But I'm gaining ground.
You can't hold on forever.
I know you have your doubts,
But if you'd hear me out,
We could fight this war together.

I'm burning out.
Back away.
I need space.
I need oxygen.
If you want the truth
Then start listening,
Because I can't scream much louder.
Fountain Pens
This is my 4th poem, assuming I am counting correctly, for NaPoWriMo2015. This is actually the work of multiple days, so I am half-tempted to count this as multiple poems because it's so much longer than what I normally write, but that seems like cheating.
:iconsighingplz: I'm not sure if I'm totally happy with this. I wrote it with the intention of it being lyrics (I basically recorded myself free-singing, and then organized it into more cohesive lyrics.) The only problem with lyric writing vs. poetry writing for me is that for some reason, when I try to write lyrics, it's like my brain just goes back to middle school, and I have no word skills because I'm too focused on having relatively regular meter and rhyme, and a melody that sounds okayish. And then I'm left with meh lyrics, meh music, and meh feels. Meh. Lyric writing always reminds me of how much I love free verse, which in my opinion, is so much more organic. I'll probably go back and edit it later. The only part of it that I'm REALLY happy with is the second half or so of the first stanza. I did vary a little from the current lyric formula though (Verse 1, Chorus, Verse 2, Chorus, Bridge, Chorus, Chorus). I ended up with something like Verse A, Chorus, Verse B1, Chorus, Verse B2, Chorus. WHATEVER. Maybe someday I can get this workable enough to actually record. Or something. I don't know. Things.

I was full of words.
I breathed them in
And they danced
On my tongue,
But it was too soon
To free them,
So I held my breath.
They burned their way
Into my lungs,
Trying to claw themselves
Out of my chest
But I choked them back,
And they suffocated.
Timed Out
Well, this is my 3rd poem for NapoWriMo 2015. I wrote it a few days ago, and I'm just now getting around to posting it. Maybe I'll start writing poems during my boring classes, because I've been so busy. This poem is actually somewhat about writer's block. Basically, All during the month of March, I was looking forward to NaPoWriMo, but then when April rolled around, I have been too busy and stressed to write.

NAPOWRIMO!

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 5, 2015, 3:00 PM


So, all throughout the month of March, I was looking forward to April! I was really crazy-hyped for NaPoWriMo. I even started writing a few poems early because I was so excited about it. And then April rolled around, and I started the month off with a bajillion projects due in all of my classes (I'm taking 18 undergrad credits at the moment,) and completely forgot about NaPoWriMo. So, I am almost a whole week behind at this point, but I'm still going to try to write 30 poems during the month. I'll just have to double up on some days. To be honest though, I might not really be able to write much for the first few days, so my catching up is going to have to be later in the month. I might be trying to do more in the way of song lyrics than straight-up poems, but we shall see.

On another note, I've been really MIA recently. But as I mentioned earlier, I've got a fairly heavy class load this semester. I have been doing a lot of art things though, (mainly because they're for classes,) but once the semester is over, I can scan/photograph a lot of these things and share them. I've done a few gouache paintings, and I'm working on an installation, a formal dress, and a really awesome skirt. I'm really excited to share them once I've got the time. I also have recorded a song cover for a friend of mine, which will be included in her wedding reception playlist, and I'll post a link to that as soon as I have a chance to upload it.

So anyway, thanks for your patience everybody! I hope you hadn't forgotten about me. heh. If you're not doing NaPoWriMo, I'd stongly encourage you to check it out and try to do it, even if you're getting a late start. In years past, it has helped push me to create some poems that I'm really proud of honestly. Have a fabulous April, everybody!

Well, I came here to give you a llama and a watch from your really nice poem, Timed Out. :)

You are beautiful, and you remind me of Marie Fredriksson of Roxette. :heart:

I know! I was so surprised! Now I'm all inspired to write again! I was getting kind of discouraged because I didn't have any formal recognition in the dA lit community. But now I feel on top of the world.

I didn't gift you the premium for shits and giggles Kerry. Don't let not getting recognized on DA get you down. There's a clique to crack on here.
