[Music |Wolf Like Me by TV on the Radio]

Name/Age:  Destiny/15

What types of creative activites do you do? (Writing, Art, Photo.): Writing (I'm so well rounded I know)

Name some creative writers or artists who you enjoy:
Well I do love Leonardo DaVinci and VanGogh... In the writing department I love Clive Barker, Alison Croggon, Jane Yolen, Christopher Paolini, J.K. Rowling... and so many more @_@

Do you have any recent muses or inspirations?: Anything from my stuffed tree kangaroo toy to the sound of the leaves blowing to really cheesy movies. If it's good, it'll move me in some way.


Why do you want to join ?: Because I think that a place where people can congregate to share their work in a safe environment full of constructive criticism is pretty kick ass, if you don't mind me saying.

Any guilty obsessions?:  I like the Backstreet Boys and I still watch Avatar: The Last Airbender ..... and Fairly Odd Parents.. Heehee


Completely aside from the arts, what is a random fact about you that you believe everyone should know?:
I prefer to write things than type them when I'm writing creatively because I personally believe that writing is so much more intimate.

Please post either a picture of yourself, or a picture that resembles you in any way, shape or form. (This is where you can get creative) Also please include a sample of your creative work so we can get to know you a little better.



A sample of my writing (It's dark I know and a bit long... I guess some sort of Warning should be put up): Rated PG-13... To be safe ._.

Yeah I'm new to using lj so... I'll get the hang of things eventually. But for now, the old-school way will have to do.

Hey, I'm new to this community and my name is Em.
I live in Canada.
I've been writing.. probably ever since I could hold a pen.
I've been extremely interested in photography ever since I received my camera on my birthday this year.
This looks like a really great place. :)

That picture above, it inspires me.
For the most odd reason.
It makes me feel enclosed.
Stuck between two nearly collapsing walls,
like I must have been taking the picture.
That day I spent with my father, my half sister and her husband.

As far as poetry goes, it hits me in waves, rather like some sort of strange stomach bug. With those, you know you're going to throw up. You can feel it coming, and hopefully you make it to an appropriate vomit-receptical in time. Or you just blow chunks all over the place because you're lazy and/or don't care (that's how I feel, particularly in school haha). For me, poetry is a brain bug and if I don't make it to a pen and paper in time I just start spewwing verse, and hopefully I remember parts of it to come back to when it hits me again. This little bit of smut has been waiting a long time for me, but I'm finally satisfied. It's been about a year since I started, and it took a week of noodling to finish it.

Night
It’s born a gentle whisper
On the winglets of the night
Then upsurges to a howl
As the day’s last rays take flight.

Sunset bathes the sky in gold
A hue so pure and bright
Yet mere color cannot challenge
The upbraiding army’s might.

As ranks of darkness circle round
And night entrenched stirs
A voice of nightmare lashes out
Reality is blurred.

Senses strain to comprehend
Surroundings cloaked in black
Suspicion sharpens wary eyes 
On guard for night’s attack

When dusk falls at the end of day
To cast life in despair
We wait in silence knowing
That the sun still shines, somewhere.

And soon enough will twilight come
To wrench cruel night’s fell reign
Pale dawn then pinks the heavens
Which full day alights in flame. 

 
Oh, in case anyone cares, when I write poetry I listen to purely instrumental music because anything with words distracts me.  Hence the reference to Cornell's marching band, which plays songs I like, but obviously minus the words :)

where foxes run free
faeries can't be far behind
for the fox holds the key
to the realm of the faery

this really has no title yet. but it's the truth. it is said that the fox moves between worlds, probably because they are usually seen at 'tween times-dawn and dusk, that sorta stuff.  

curious
i wonder how you feel
is it true what others say
am i always on your mind
do you think of me that way
is what's between us
more than just a friendship
is it just my imagination
or are you falling for me

i can't figure out if a good friend of ine thinks of me as more than a friend or if it's just in my imagination.

[Music |Maps :: Yeah Yeah Yeahs]

Hello everyone, I'm Cathryn, the moderator.  I've changed my lj from w_a_k_e, which I used when I made this community.

To be honest, I had completely forgotten about this community.  I was so excited when it was up and running, grouping several artsy-aficionados together, exchanging artwork, writing, photography and more.  School took over, work took over...life took over, basically...and I set this community, along with several artistic endevors, on the backburner of my eternal To-Do List.

I recently found, through my friend's friend-list, that this community is STILL ACTIVE!  I nearly died with happiness/reminiscence.  I thank all of you for keeping this community alive after an incredible amount of time!  I am incredibly excited for this community and what I plan to do with it (now that am enlightened of it's continuous exsistance!).

So, for now, I'd like to give a huge welcome to any new members that have stopped by for the time being or stayed for a bit, and I would like to give a HUGE thank you to any exsisting members that stuck around!  I plan to re-make the layout a bit to allow more community-friendliness, promote the community more so that a larger group may join us and share their works and talents, and I myself plan to contribute and awaken my artistic voice that has been in hibernation for too long.  Also, I'd like to welcome an_endless_sky as my co-moderator.

Happy New Year to all!
-Cathryn (cafrins)

 Simple Pleasures
it seems that when your down
the only thing that helps
is the feel of a lover's touch
but when that lover is far away
nothing replaces the sound of a lover's voice

A Poem [Jul. 22nd, 2007|02:13 pm]
[Creative Writing, Photography and Artwork]

[Music |The intro music to Pirates of the Caribbean]

Yeah, I can't remember the last time I wrote a poem that didn't sound like I wanted to slit my writs, which obviously I wouldn't want to share since it would give the impression of depression, from which I do not suffer. My writing is often melancholic for reasons that elude even me. It's always sort of just lingering.

This one's about this past weekend I guess.

Step, step, to the beat of a drum
Following two and leading one
Play, play for the joy of the crowd
Smile to hear joy voiced aloud.
March; march, for you told me to
And if once said, you told me true.
Speak, speak; let me hear that voice
That which stole the path of choice
Lead, lead, I’ll put no foot astray
Transport me back into that day
I traced your steps, an intricate dance
Everything, nothing to do with chance.
Please turn not away from me
Head one selfish, quiet plea:
Venture far if such is fate,
But return here, ‘ere the hour’s late.

This is me!


This is a poem I wrote some time ago for my first love. It is very personal, but it is the only recent work I have. Please don't steal it! I poured my soul and tears into this for him after we were no longer and he was moving to Georgia from West Virginia.

He actually wrote part of the poem about 2 years beforehand in a collab. we did together. It seemed like he wrote it knowing how things were going to end up. The part he wrote is the stanza immediately following, "I. ONE"

There are a couple of referrences to titles of songs and movies we both loved together and a referrence to a poem I had written him when we first met.

The title means, "Lovers are Lunatics".

AMANTES sunt AMENTES

 
Chest chest chest

And I was burning up

 

Burning up inside of

Inside of my own

Fucking

Skin. //Feel your breathing//

                         in.my.chest chest chest

                                   caving in for you

 

 

He will say

OH

WHEN WE WERE YOUNG

YOUng

 

For you

 

Shuffling

Shuffling

My heart

For you

 

For me

 

                                    //DROWNING//

 

Skip skipp skipping

Rocks

And the clock; tick tock

Pulling me toward earth

Gravity mocking

Me;

You;

Everyone we know:

Inevitable!

 

 

And you’re yet

In Montana, Carolina, California

 

                        Sweep away my head

                        Heart

                        Pushing blood;

                        Still

 

While I sleep alone

 In the valley, OH!

And dream of…

 

I.

ONE

Twice the cylinder; opposing a paradox
We're twined and forced to
Solve this together; if we can
With such a sheltered memory
I can look back and
Recall all the moments I spent
Thinking of you and thinking
About how tough we were together
Now we're shooting ourselves in the feet
And messing up the only good thing;
that  we have;
that we're willing to admit
Is ours!

                 

This is;NO;

 

Enchanting

 

Love song//

 

More a parable

Of him//her

 

of YOU AND ME

 

Swimming in a lake of

 

And I tried not

 

Crying

 

I regret

 

But never regretting brief moments

 

Of your arms

 

And my

 

Chest chest chest

 

Is burning up

                 //UPHEAVAL//

 

 

 

Always looking back at you

 

Your hands pushing down

[EXPECTATION]

[DISAPPOINTMENT]

[REGRET]

Expelling this from my stomach
