Writers Corner

Postby Gdub67 » Sun Aug 22, 2010 11:27 pm

So yeah I know a few of us do some writing from time to time and figured we could use a place to share our work.

I will get us started with this, It is my Poem of the Week

I call it King and it can be found here.

http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2840921/1/


Any other writers pls feel free to share your work here.

I write a few things here and there, though a lot of my older works are really really bad!

Most of the stuff is on different sites but nothing is good enough in my opinion to be posted here XD.

I will write something new for here soon

Live Through The Dawn

By Gdub67





I'm not sure where I should go from here.

Do I drown myself in this beer,

or do I put the booze away,

and embrace this beautiful new day?



There are so many choices I see.

What would you do, if you were me?

Do I step out into the light

or cling to what remains of last night



A new day is here, like it or not

and it's the only choice I've got

So I guess it's time to move on.

No choice now but to live through the dawn

you're quite welcome. part of being a writer is having people around to help edit your stuff and make sure you've spelled your words correctly and used proper grammar :) unless, of course, it was your intentions not to.

Does one need to be felt to be seen
I mean

While actions speak louder
Words are prouder

Together they flow
Even so

With this word
Who would be heard

If no one were there
Who'd care

For the invisible

So this is really cheesy, but:
Several years ago (I have been in college for far too long) a professor asked us to rewrite John Donne's "Batter My Heart" in a modern style and I chose to do it in l33t cause I am a giant nerd like that. I include the original to heighten your amusement!

By John Donne:

Batter my heart, three-personed God; for you
as yet but knock, breathe, shine, and seek to mend.
That I may rise and stand, o'erthrow me and bend
your force to break, blow, burn and make me new.
I, like an usurped town, to another due,
labor to admit you, but, oh, to no end;
reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend,
but is captived and proves weak or untrue.
Yet dearly I love you and would be loved fain,
but am betrothed unto your enemy:
divorce me, untie or break that knot again,
take me to you, imprison me, for I,
except you enthrall me, never shall be free,
nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.


By Satyrane:

Pwn my heart, l33t God, for here, You,
You just Invite, Mediate, and cast Regen;
I can't gain levels unless You beat me, then
Summon, Capture, and break me with Bolt Two.
I am a n00b, 0\/\/nZ0r3d by teh 3v!l. All
My INT is your NPC, but it's been hacked,
Whenever it stands up for me it just gets smacked.
I'd give You my r00t, but there's a firewall.
I less than three You, and would You'd the same,
But I was pwned by Your enemy when I played his game.
So nerf him, frag him, disconnect our LAN,
And pwn me too, stick it to this man.
Unless I'm Your n00b, I'll never be free,
Or pure, unless Your biznatch you make me.

I found a place to put it besides a Facebook note. I just hope everyone's not too lazy to click a link, lol.

This is a completely original work called The Shame of Life. It is the story of Tag Nameless, an amnesiac who's just awoken from a coma to a world that he knows nothing about. It's a tale of a man figuring out just who he is and who he used to be.

Word of warning: this story contains nudity, sexual situations, strong language, and lots of other mature stuff. Heck, the site I put it on has a maturity filter, so it'll ask for your DOB.

I hope everyone likes it. I put a lot of work into it! Comments and criticism is appreciated! =D
