O, For a Muse of Fire

O, for a Muse of fire with diamond eyes,
Bring me to the edge of
This staged kingdom;
Throw me over the edge until time
Sees us realign with more beautiful chaos.
I am Mars, I am every Monarch,
I am all the chess-pieces on this broken game board
You long to play.

Do you like the way the water tastes
After your eternal thirst for more?
Shower me into your very same realm
And let this perilous ocean part.
Cherry waves of soldier’s blood
In the wine goblets of rich white men,
Like the Hydra,
Cut off one head and more grown back
To rule the sick hierarchy.

The coffin shakes in a chariot of glass,
Pulled through an endless night by Apollo’s horses.
When the needle breaks
The record will scratch like young skin
That only the Gods may judge.
Cast opinion on this play if you will,
But it is best you keep dreaming;
Lest the Muse awaken.
O, For a Muse of Fire
Been a while since my last upload! 

This is a piece of my creative writing module this term, a poem in response to the Prologue of Henry V by William Shakespeare.

Sepia

In my finite amounts are infinities of possibility.
Men have wept, women swooned,
Children ceased their sweet madness momentarily
At the hands of a few words.

The best stories never made it through whole,
For you see Medusa devoured Perseus for the fool he was,
Helen wasn't all that beautiful, just clever,
And Sparta fell at the hands of women despite its mighty reputation

Of course there are other myths that aren't mythical,
Legends less legendary than most-
It’s all in the interpretation.
The sword is wrongly feared; for all blood eventually soaks into the ground,
It’s the pen that is eternal
Aided by nothing more than a few drops of ink.
Sepia
I wrote this for a competition ages ago but the deadline was Halloween and I never posted it (oops)
Enjoy anyway?

God is empty just like me

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 6, 2014, 12:30 PM
University is amazing and it feels like I've waited forever to finally enjoy education again! :w00t:
I do miss my mum loads however
I've joined loads of societies and am already getting set loads of work, so it's never a boring moment aha. Everyone in my flat is lovely, and even though our oven is broken and the toaster is shite we're managing to feed ourselves. As I type this I am wrapped in 3 layers of clothing and a blanket because my heating has decided to break (yay?) but I'm hoping the Uni Porters can fix it before it gets too much colder.
Hopefully a drastic move up North will inspire more poetry, but if not there is a huge selection of geese to photograph (you think I'm joking, but we have a duck that follows us inside the porch over here in L Block...) because of the huge lake that is the foundation to the campus. At least if the bread ever goes stale we'll have plenty of willing candidates to get rid of it aha :XD:
This will probably be my last journal entry whilst I'm on Premium (goodbye pretty journal skins :( ) so not sure I'll update for a while. So yeah for anyone who cares, I'm alive! Uni is going super well, feel good about life etc. etc. Also I'm eating brioche and it's so tasty. I know it's more of a breakfast thing but roll with it :XD:
Ciao :peace:

The Moon in Virgo

She wore Mercury on her lips;
For when the visions came
the madness left a poisonous taste in the mouth
and rotten teeth
(several missing)
There was once a sweet and youthful
element, as is the case with women,
But she lost her worth in societal eyes
long before twenty two.

Now she is eighty six
with no husband to determine her path;
The stars do it well enough.
Even the sun shines in a way
that allows her to regain stolen beauty,
Without the use of too much rouge.

Astrology became a science when God abandoned her,
Many would argue he was never there.
A distant relative was burned as
a witch of sorts,
But she is not bitter.
The tea she takes helps her to forget;
To drift off to sleep in a manner so sweet
that she cries to dream once more upon waking.
The Moon in Virgo
For a contest at :iconany-all-literature:

I chose to use prompt 3: A horoscope, makeup, and a missing tooth

Hairline Fracture

The subtle knowing that divides
you from "the others"- that one day you'll
be gone.
Erased.
Is enough to make you feel both small
and superior at the same time.

It angers you when people use the word
"Infinity"
Life is as finite as the number of
Grains of sand in the hourglass,
Yet it's so easy to enjoy daytime television
and takeout food.

There is more to being a biological philistine
than simply existing for days on end,
Because we can't all go to Peru
Or climb mountains.
The biggest feat is simply waking up every day
To the safe sound of a steady heartbeat.
Hairline Fracture
Only got a month left of Premium, so best get submissions rolling in before I'm off to uni!

Inspired by "the wasted summer" that many talk about.
