    Default Artists Unite: Post your Art

    Through some keen observation I've noticed we have a few artists on the forum, so I think it would be cool to see/hear/read what kind of art the forumites are cooking up, whether it's music, visual art, or whatever else you guys consider art.

    As it's customary for the OP to start things of, I'll post a piece I wrote some time last year.

    The Piece Unworthy of the Society Puzzle

    Labels are abundant amongst us
    Labels designed by conniving masters
    Masters who manipulate society and in turn,
    Manipulate our demeanor, change our behavior,
    Alter our composure, making them, as dreadful as it sounds, our ultimate masters.

    Now isn't that, once you ponder, a devious crime?
    One that is borne of intentions, complications, stipulations,
    Presented in an assortment of manifestations...

    Nay! That barely hinges towards being the crime of all time
    The true crime lies within the victims. Victims? Yes, VICTIMS...
    They sketch you as a nerd, they color you a slut, they pen you as a dog
    They paint you Socially Awkward, they water down the ideals in your blood as naive
    They label you a fool
    You modify your being and persona in order to fit in like a cliché trying to be cool

    We fail to question by which standards we're being judged and ridiculed
    We fail to ask whosoever deemed these standards worthy or acceptable
    See where I'm going with this?! Do you see where WE are going with this?!

    By this mentality some may deem me insane, deranged, or crazy
    But how do we define insanity?
    As a matter of fact, if you'd do your research right and right now,
    not even with your entire might
    Find those demeaning and outcast perpetuating terms
    You will find one common theme: different, out of the ordinary, abnormal
    As it may seem

    Wait! Isn't Good different from Bad
    or Happy from Sad? Pink from Blue? Shirt from Shoe?
    So DIFFERENT has a time and a place now?

    Call me crazy, insane with a wire in a bend
    Because I fail to follow and adapt to a trend
    All I'll do is bask in simple laughter and tell you,
    IF being different is cause for insanity as a diagnosis,
    Then maybe, just maybe, I'm one of the craziest individuals you'll come across

    So you can go ahead, judge me. Shame on you
    Should I begin to acknowledge your judgement, shame on me for being the bigger fool
    Because… I am one piece that doesn't fit into the society puzzle.
    ...............................................

    So what art are you cooking up (maybe even literally)?

    Garnaph, Druid of The Horde (a mate)

    The first two pieces of my NaruNeko collection (which is currently a work in progress):
    Eight Trigrams Sixty-Paw Palms!
    If you do not laugh - I will control you with fear

    I used to be a jack of a lot of trades - lyrics, music, poetry, graphic stuff, cooking, baking - but I seem to be VERY slack these days. I haven't written anything for a couple years, the last time I did any graphics was when I was playing C.o.D and my cooking, well, that can be blamed on laziness. Here is something that won me $200 a few years back, I came second with it


    Heaven is Mourning

    I make love to an angel
    within rivers of forbidden lust
    my deliverence .....
    I would kiss your lips
    for a whisper of silk
    a whisper of God

    Oh it's so lonely just before the dawn
    when heaven is mourning
    I have no illusions
    when heaven is sad
    I have no regret

    I make love to an angel
    a reliquary of forbidden ecstasy
    my damnation .....
    I would kiss your breast
    for a taste of grace
    a taste of God

    Oh it's so lonely just before the end
    when heaven is mourning
    I have no illusions
    when heaven is sad
    I have no faith

    I make love to an angel
    dark incantations of forbidden rapture
    my blasphemy .....
    I would kiss your sanctuary
    for the essence of eternity
    the essence of God

    Oh it's so lonely just before the darkness
    when heaven is mourning
    I have no illusions
    when heaven is sad
    I have no dreams


    It was supposed to be a song but the music just stayed in my head ....... so ye
    - There is no proof any of us are even alive -

    I know that feel man. I used to sketch heavily (haven't touched a pencil in 2 years, even lost my book with all my works which means I have start from scratch), I do poetry (haven't written anything since Jan), I make music digitally (nothing since Feb). Laziness and general life just makes one so lazy.

    Epic piece by the way

    in My heart

    In the shadow of the moonlight
    watching the piercing starlight
    I gazed on the shore of Forever more
    Lost in the fever of your eyes

    My

    Words failed to materialize , so
    Struck was I by something
    So divine ,that heaven had blessed
    me to Find .

    I found Myself

    There lost in the harmony of your soul,losing control ,
    of me and everything I thought
    I would be
    Today ,tomorrow, eternity
    so Perfectly free.

    Holding the melody of your smile
    Kissed by your embrace
    Filled with the Music of Fate
    I knew from the cups of Forever
    I was about to taste

    And in My heart you had found your place .
