The Bone CrowNight. Wisps of whispers hollowThe Bone Crow by NemoX7
Slink through lichen headstones.
Ethereal, they beckon only you,
For blind you are - Still you follow.
Milk beak crooks, sallow skull,
Atop chord-less spinal cord
Glaring out the last flame
Of dark and binding Samhain.
Beads ebony; blisters in pain
Blinking from the void discord
Where death has no life
And the living bear it no name.
From without time and space within,
Stands decrepit in unholy state,
The bone crow - talons outspread:
Etching out diabolic runes of sin.
Echo blood snakes, rancid ribs,
Shows warm intestinal worms
Hiding the primordial fears
Of black and dangerous Samhain.
Claws snowy; glitters with rain
Heralds forth the inferno squirms
Where demons take no wife
And the angels weep empty tears.
To internal dawn before dusk eternal,
Stalks egregious by deistic fate,
The bone crow - feathers unthread:
Egregious blades risen love infernal.
SquirrelBuckled oak boughs, acorns a-plenty.Squirrel by NemoX7
Squirrels, fidget and forage,
Nuts mysterious under canopy mists
Elude those frantic paws
A natural instinct that signed no
Line or read terms and conditions;
A natural instinct knows no cause
While the grey out runs the red
And war maims the forest
Until all but acorns are dead.
School TripFailure to launch.School Trip by NemoX7
Teacher readies her lunch.
Abattoir cows graze,
While espionage children
Frolic outside in gem maze.
Disaster. Thunder clap crunch.
Teacher delays her munch.
The Breath We HoldBreathe in. Spit out the deluge.The Breath We Hold by NemoX7
It's not fair to say we try
When the sun spins so far away
And we close our eyes,
But we never cry.
Even if the dark of the moon
Where to blind your heart
In it's shame of darkness.
I know we'd erase our distress
And no more sorrow.
Arms open. Breathe out.
Worry-LessPurge the nightWorry-Less by NemoX7
With strawberries and cream.
Don't concern yourself
On the conundrum of why?
Just let the cosmic giraffe
Take you up to a higher sky,
Where cherubs dance
Against a velvet mask
A-buzz with rainbow fireflies.
Numb the dawn
With dying posters of Che.
Don't worry yourself
In the enigma of a dream.
Wake up the urban number
Cruising by to a flourish scream!
Where hellions trance
Before a crystal visage
Alight to shadow moonbeams.
Rinse the day
With a melody led stream.
Don't subdue yourself
In the kaleidoscope of lies.
Seek out the eternal walrus
Who talks unto a broth of sighs,
Where flesh prance
Under a marble face
Alert to your insanity gone by.
LovecraftI tried to read Lovecraft once,Lovecraft by NemoX7
But tales of tentacles and
Bone pendulums in glass jars
Led only to a sneeze.
Cthulhu grotesque green
Wriggles and writhes
Upon denim of my knees.
Are his words archaic,
So unfathomable to my ears?
Every line. Every paragraph
Appears like a madness
Inside the quiet of my mind.
I tried to read Lovecraft once,
But stories of the strange
Woke dreams ever arboreal
In my heart mellow.
Polaris yielding yellow
Stalks and shines
Into echo of my irises.
Is his voice antique,
So unattainable to my lips?
Every sentence. Each image
Disappears like a sadness
Past the weird until I'm blind.
I tried to read Lovecraft once,
But time and space
Could never reveal to me
Any quasar of meaning or myth
In his surrealism I hold
Or the fact that I cannot fathom
His scribbles of lies untold.
Why Do We Need The Large Hadron Collider?What you are about to read is a discursive essay I wrote for my Higher English course while I was a student at Dundee College in the autumn of 2009. This was 3 years before I ever wrote a poem or invested any time in attempting prose as a past-time. Please bear in mind elements of this essay are now out of date due to the period of time of its conception. Why I'm sharing this? Well I found my old essay while sifting through old college papers and I remember that I wrote it all in one stream of conscious thought. The result was that my lecturer evaluated the essay and awarded me an A grade for my effort. Also note the following is written from the mindset of a younger, cynical, more naive me. Anyway, please enjoy an essay from my past.Why Do We Need The Large Hadron Collider? by NemoX7
Why do we need the Large Hadron Collider?
It has been in the works since CERN (the European Organisation for Nuclear Research) conceived the idea of building the controversial 'Doomsday' machine known
So What's It Gonna Be?Why can't you tell me the truthSo What's It Gonna Be? by Frencifry
I'm tired of you lying to me
Why can't you tell me how you feel
If this is really real
So what's it gonna be?
Are you even dedicated to me
If not, then let me go and set me free
I've given you all that I can
With nothing in return from a helpless man
I'm sick of all these lies
You say you'll change, but you won't even try
I shouldn't waste my time with you
I can't even have the truth
So I guess this is goodbye
But if you still need me
There is still time
So what's it gonna be?
Promise MePromise Me by mayastoso
You'll let me know
You'll love me so.
You'll hold my hand
That this is real
The heart we feel.
You'll make me smile
You'll stay a while.
You're truly "fine"
That you'll be mine.
And promise me
We'll sail away
To Death They CallTo the dead, they call me.To Death They Call by RozaArts
To receive me.
To haunt me.
To torture me.
They come by to say "it'll be soon"
"Soon for what" I ask.
I fear my darkest hour is arriving.
To the death they call.
To them we mean nothing.
But some of them mean something.
The loved ones.
Or the hated ones.
To the death they call us.
They want us.
To haunt us.
To be us.
Full Of StressFull of stress.Full Of Stress by RozaArts
Wishing for less.
People ignore me because I make it stressful.
But I'm just trying to be helpful.
I'm tired of being yelled at to shut up because I have something to say.
I'm tired of it being constant every single night and day.
I'm sick of being told what to do.
I'm sick of all of you.
I can only handle those who understand.
Who would be with me and take a stand.
I can't take anymore stress.
I said I wanted less.
But I see.
Less stress is to be dead.
HauntedForever I will be haunted.Haunted by RozaArts
And always reminded.
Of the way you talked.
The way we walked.
Of the way you looked at me.
And how I was the only girl you see.
Of they way you held me.
And never left me be.
Of those gorgeous eyes.
hoping to never hear any goodbyes.
Of that beautiful smile.
And how we would laugh for a little while.
Of your personality.
And I'll always be reminded.
Because your gone, and I'm forever haunted....
|A variety of deviations I have favourited while I've been a member of .|
Who am I?|
I have no idea. But I think I've got a binary vascular system and I love jelly babies. Oh, and I write poems and short stories when the mood takes; usually puts me in a sack, takes me to some forgotten barn on a stormy November night and forces me to write. I'm self-taught, so I still make mistakes though they're mostly minor.
Why do I write?
To take over the world and then... The UNIVERSE! Ahem, well actually I write because it's a rash on my brain and I need to scratch it every so often.
"To name an object is to supress three-quarters of the enjoyment to be found in a poem... suggestion, that is the dream."

Some links to great informative articles on NaNoWriMo (National November Writer's Month) which I have collected for your viewing pleasure:
Don't Panic: It's NaNoWriMo!“Perhaps I'm old and tired, but I always think that the chances of finding out what really is going on are so absurdly remote that the only thing to do is to say hang the sense of it and just keep yourself occupied.” ― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Don't panic, it's a stressful time for a lot of writers, but that's why we write. NaNoWriMo is easily one of the more terrifying events which wants you to do a lot of writing. Some people choose to write an entire novel and some people choose to do otherwise. The fun thing about this event is a lot of people are doing it and a lot of people are just as scared of going in blind as you are. This is the month were your strengths, your quirks, and your mild attention span will be tested with the name of the game: National November Writing Month.
Ready, Set, NaNo!So it's that time of the year again and we're all racing around trying to get our bits together for NaNoWriMo. OR, we're laughing at the people running around trying to get all their bits together for NaNo. In the past, I've written articles on what NaNo is and how to prepare for it. This isn't one of those articles. Well, not entirely. Let's start with the glaringly obvious.
What's the point of NaNo?
If you answered "To write a 50k Word Count Novel in a month's time," you're wrong. NaNo is about conditioning writers to write regularly, keep those creative juices flowing and to work under pressure. November is a busy month. Students are back in school. Parents are dealing with said students. In the United States, we have Thanksgiving and of course everyone is getting ready for Christmas. Add in clearing 1,667 words a day and we're talking about some major pressure. But that's the poi
Preparing for NaNoWriMo Part 1We may only be one week into October, but November and NaNoWriMo is just around the corner. If you've never heard of it, NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month. That means in the span of thirty days, participants will write 50,000 words.
1,667 words per day if they're writing every day.
2,273 words per day if they're only writing on weekdays.
6,250 words per day if they're only writing on weekends.
Either way it's a pretty hefty feat, and not something to walk into unprepared. Even if you're a "by the seat of your pants" type of writer.
So this year, instead of doing a basic what is NaNo and who's going to participate in it journal, we're gonna switch it up and give you some pointers on what you should be doing and what you definitely shouldn't be doing before and during NaNo.
The best place to get advice is from the people that have tried NaNo. Notice how I didn't say "and succeeded?" T
Preparing for NaNoWriMo Part 2In my last journal, we discussed the best ways to prepare for NaNo and included a couple tips on how to make that writing go a little faster and smoother. Well, now it's time to discuss how to NOT fail at NaNoWriMo. Because just as there are some really grand ideas on how to prepare yourself and keep yourself on task during the month, there are also going to be those times of self doubt and using excuses to not write. For NaNo, any of those excuses are completely unacceptable [well, except for life threatening excuses - those are allowed].
So once again, I reached out to the Lit Community to find out exactly why other deviants failed at NaNo, or what they found to NOT work for them and compiled it all together in a pretty little list like last time.
What Not to Do
Don't get sucked in Wikipedia, TVtropes or any other sites like that. In fact turn off your WiFi so the internet isn't a distraction. All your research
I wish whoever attempts NaNoWriMo this year the best of luck. There will be plenty of folk here on dA to cheer you on!
Just a quick end note to say I have not forgotten about my Poem of the Day feature. I have been indisposed with my voluntary work for the past week which upset my internal equilibrium. However, I'll be checking out folk's literature very, very soon. Oh and I'm currently waiting to hear back about a job and I have an interview lined up for another one this Friday. So fingers crossed I'll be working two jobs through November and December.
"You love to play with words and rhymes. There's always a very rich, thoughtful and passionate palate of syllables and rhythm in your work and I love this very much <3. You're a very nice person too, one who forgives little mistakes () and writes nice responses and hosts awesome contests and ideas ♥"
"There are so many things to be said about this deviant. My conversations with him have been enlightening and entertaining to say the least. His quick wit and genuine hilarity always put a bright spot on my day. Not only that, but he is an amazing poet that deserves all of the praise and feedback he deems necessary."
"But my very feelings changed to repulsion and terror when I saw the whole man slowly emerge from the window, and begin to crawl down the castle wall over that dreadful abyss, face down, with his cloak spreading out around him like great wings."
~From "Dracula" by Bram Stoker
me if you want to have a quote either your own or someone else's featured here.
Each month, I'll be selecting 100 poems from a variety of wonderful poets to showcase in a special feature I like to call 100 Poem Feature. These will include a selection of 15 talented writers and 4 of their poems, 5 Literary Groups with 3 poems selected from each and a random selection of 15 poems that have caught my eye. Enjoy!
Poem Of The Day
Hi there! Welcome to my new daily feature "Poem of the Day" where I will feature a poem I really enjoyed for 24 hours or so.
My inductee for 22/10/2014 is...
With a short four line poem based on a theme of sorrow. A poignant piece of succinct writing. Her word choice and imagery really gives a sense of sorrow without being direct. A poem that is surely relatable to many who have experienced the sensations evoked in the poem below.
