Her Royalty
Upon effeminate faces
of four
a majestic scorn.
Where suits
of crimson and charcoal
And her dimensions are worn.
Her throne
but a blank canvas to
feign rapport;
and paper hearts adorn.
:icondisorientedchaos:disorientedchaos 1 0
Across a face so carefully compiled,
she dragged that unnatural smile;
lips painted red to soften the blow
of utterances so delicately vile.
Within the scrutiny of reflection
she expedites her expression;
applying thwart pigmentation
to portray the right impression.
An image to scorn persistent quandary
to preserve her shallow disguise.
Tonight she is dressed to the nines,
adorned with the best kind of apprise.
Isn't she beautiful?

Demolition Dance
His paragon
coarsely weaves the extremities
of his overwhelming
he tightly braids infatuation
with his inflated
He breathes "perfection"
in a callous drone
by saccharine
:icondisorientedchaos:disorientedchaos 0 14
A forgery with a signature inked in whiskey.
The stench of sobriety faltering in dishonesty,
staining this verse something horribly mundane;
I give permission to veil this contract arcane.
One clouded document of preposterous proportion
muted in position of gantlet distortion.
In comprehension of –
sensibility is misplaced;
in ruthless idiom of unforeseen  taste.
I've been had.
:icondisorientedchaos:disorientedchaos 2 5
A cathedral
inhabited by the forsaken masses;
spoiled testament in evils silhouette.
by the debris of grated secrets,
while dust collects at an altar
of regret.
I seek no mercy here.
Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.
:icondisorientedchaos:disorientedchaos 0 6
Black Bowler
Beneath charcoal felt
lay an untarnished, contemporary,
nineteenth century allure.
Wily brown eyes dealt
a fatigued game of dress-up for his
refreshingly handsome demure.
A curvature crown svelte
upon the head of a philosopher king
found so blissfully obscure.
For a princess will melt
in his staggering charm so aberrant
and she'll be guided by his adjure.

Your name?

If possible, your age?

When did you start writing?
Honestly I have been writing since I could write my name. I clearly remember the concept of the first story I ever completed. I was approximately seven years old at the time and I constructed an original tale about the origin of the Easter bunny; a piece my step father had found exceptionally humorous.

Do you write by hand or use a word processing program? If so, which hand/which program?
Typically I write everything out in Microsoft word. Although, when a wave of inspiration hits me in an environment lacking technology, I'll jot my ideas down in the traditional "Paper & Pen" format.

Which perspective is easier to write: Male, female, or other?
Neither perspective is particularly difficult for me to write about. My preferences are greatly dependent on what I am writing about. In most of my stories I develop a male leads, though. As far as poetry is concerned, the perspective varies greatly.

Which is easier to write - basically good or basically evil characters?
I think the answer finds itself in that regard.

Is it easier to write first person, second person, third person limited, or third person omniscient?
That all depends on how I want the reader to perceive my work. Taking into consideration how much I enjoy readers taking what they can from my work, I find third person omniscient works best.

What do you have trouble writing?
Positive love poems... generally anything overtly positive does not come naturally to me. That is not to say I am a negative person, I just do not feel inspired to write about how happy I am, least of all, how great my love life is going.

What do you like to write?
Anything I feel passionate about strikes the best kind of muse. Typically anything that makes me angry, depressed, frustrated... I love to be sarcastic, blunt, and vile in my work.

How do you often begin your writing?
I hardly begin every piece in a consistent format. I find my poetry follows the flow of my feelings to give the reader a taste of my meaning.

What is your writing habit that you are aware of?
Honestly, I feel this is more a strength in that I gain intellectual readers, but I am aware that it tends to defeat the reasoning behind my ambiguity. I write in a manner that is not only abstract, but also potentially confusing. I mask a lot of my meaning, on purpose, mind you, but I find I bury meaning far too deeply within my words.

Any tips?
Take what you see and make it as ugly or as beautiful as you want. There are no limits to creativity.

How long does it take to finish a piece?
As soon as I begin a piece, I cannot quit until it is complete. I take about ten minutes to square off a poem. Stories take much longer, of course; depending on the length of the story, it may take me an hour, a few days, or even a few years to complete.

What music do you listen to while you write?
When I do listen to music, it must be a song that remains consistent with what I am trying to bring across to the reader.

How long does it take you to come up with an idea?
I don't try to force my ideas. I let them come to me. Sometimes I consistently receive muse whereas other times I go days or months without writing.

Your favorite genre(s) when writing?
I lean toward realism, but I am definitely not limited to it.

Your favorite genre(s) when reading?
Whatever mood strikes my fancy.

Your favorite writers?
I find it difficult to remain loyal to any writer. I float around.

What kind of writing are you aiming for?
Honestly, that depends on my mood. The intent behind my pieces differs every time I write. Generally speaking, I just hope readers understand and can relate.

You're very welcome. =]

Your words are amazing. They have so much behind them. They give out what you think and feel while allowing me the freedom to think for myself and have my own feelings on the pieces.

I get jealous of others as I never get much attention for my writings or my art, however there are some people I'm happy to see get attention, you would be one of them :).
disorientedchaos Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2010
Awww! Thank-you! That was really sweet of you. =] I must say I enjoy the way you write and I am happy I browsed the literature section when I did; otherwise, I would have missed your piece. I have been dabbling through your gallery ever since. XD

I've been using this site for years now, and that was the first time I ever looked on there lol.

I'm still extremely confused by this site, and quite possibly don't use it well enough.

I kind of browse something quickly, then get confused at what the hell any of it is all about, and end up doing nothing about anything. I struggle to get over five views of any of my writings, and I think many only have one view.

Which sucks, as I think my writings are worthwhile and worth being read. Too bad I have no idea how to get them read!!!

You are very welcome on the comment. You don't need to thank me though, you are the one who gave to me.

I found it difficult getting views too. I have some friends who use DeviantArt, so their feedback helped me catch the eye of a few others; but, for the longest while little came in the way of poets. Lately, what has been helping me is browsing the literature section for anything that catches my eye. Usually when I see a really well written piece, there are more where that came from. Through commenting and critiquing others, I've gained watches, views, and critiques on my own work. I guess DeviantArt is a strict "give and take" system until you obtain enough watchers. ^_^ There are many writers like us wanting to put ourselves out there, we just need to find them. =P
