  1. Collective Slam Poem: Nov/Dec 2017

    The Slam collective poem for November and December I'm really excited for this. I made some guidelines, but we'll see how it goes. For comments/questions/discussion use the Community poem 1 forum This poem is open to everyone to contribute. The last day to contribute is December 31st. Each person can add one line at a time. While you can post indefinitely, please keep authors varied throughout poem. Your contribution should be deliberate, as in your line develops the poem the way YOU want to develop it. The topic will develop throughout the course of the poem's composition. First person to contribute writes the opening line. -Hydralio

    I thought about it but wasn't sure what to call it or who should name it. Do you guys have any suggestions? Should we leave as is? -Hydralio
  3. Collective Slam Poem: Nov/Dec 2017

    every sentence you speak hums against my throat: you still awake? Your voice is drowning out my thoughts, I would let you go if I could remember how And Even if I could sleep, every Dream sounds like your flower scented voice You say you dream of me, of butterbeer and scented candles. but I Know. You're just telling me cuz you Feel so Alone. And who would dream of blue skies when there are bright stars above them? Each star twinkling like the jewels on your diamond necklace. Each bone glittering, osteoblast gemstones, blood like red dye number eight tattooed over R#3 hued muscle but i will say to you: don't walk away. not now. For then I will see the jewels in your necklace were glass instead of stars and your bones mere calcium instead of gems and your eyes, love, were only as full of the universe as i wanted them to be Our goodbye was a slow burn The world turned out of my hands and swept you away in the wildfire And as I tried to cut the stars from your eyes, you cried out Would kisses rend you, tear heart-flesh from rib-cage? Oh, our sweet, Sweet vanity. Wearing your presence like rubies, garnets, our love was a fire opal. We are rough and jagged, uncut diamonds scratching once smooth skin. the good ones, despite jarring metaphor, step back with 'are you sure?' but you, you were a good one in how you stepped forward and up, to reach the top of the pedestal you placed me on and the pedestal i made for you fell to earth along with he sky, with the stars, as you wept and those fiery comets dripped out with your tears the shattered pieces are a stronger monument to Pain than the smooth marble was to Love leave the architecture to the greek, my god, and don't bloody bare feet on fragments of my shattered heart that the ones before you ground to glittering dust follow not my path; I will not pave bloodstone, but rather marigolds. for marigolds are blooming suns that burst alive in the velvet sky; crystalline stars of burning passion. Swirling Van Gogh yellows will sweep you away with glittering shards of glass Ha! That's all we are And ever were: Brushstrokes and gemStones. The art Medium. Stars winking, remote and alone. Solitary titans, like those we used to be; or, perhaps, nebulas clusters like who we are now. Clinging to faint wisps of hope that this universe, this vast fresco of burning cyan and cushioned crimson, will one day take pity on us pitiful ones. and yet, statistically: space is more empty than full And even if we say otherwise, we are more empty than full, too. and so we are ever reaching, ever grasping: empty creatures striving to fill the void swallowing ground-up glass to make the stars to fill it can only do so much, we've learned that and the stars that aren’t bring blood from the walls of my throat as I try to choke them down i touch your cheek and Hope that all the Stars you've swallowed were real Because if they weren't, you'll be more broken than before And I, tattered as I am, will be left to glue together your pieces and plywood, sum of scraps, holds no candle to fine wine-stained cherry At the same time, too many metaphors leave sweet crumbs that scatter. Too many metaphors break us into idealized clay-footed statues, and we forget that we are only human in the end. Well, my love. I Believe we both Know the Time has come And so, dear one, adieu.

  5. Community poem 1

    Hey guys, So I was thinking we could all write a poem together as serious or as lighthearted as we would like. Basically each person would write one line of the poem. The only content rule I think would be to write your line deliberately. As for finishing the poem, maybe we can give it a time frame or a minimum number of contibutors. Like the poem will be complete after a month or complete once at least 15 different people have contributed. I would say it's ok to contribute more than once as long as authors are varied throughout the poem. Let me know what you guys think or feel free to start right off the bat. -Hydralio

    I love this. the sounds are beautiful. I just want to wrap myself in your alliteration and vowel sounds. Your word choice makes the poem evoke pretty images and strong aromas and flavors. -Hydralio
  7. Much love for this community. :93_heart-computer:

  8. Community poem 1

    For the next community poem, starting in January (or whenever), I was thinking someone else should host it/set the guidelines, like when the poem will end, how contributors should format their submissions, poem themes, etc. Thoughts? Do you want to start the next one? I'll format the Nov/Dec poem that everyone has helped write as a single post once it's no longer December. Today is the last day to contribute to this poem. Thank you. Happy New Year!! -Hydralio
  9. Happy New Year friends!!

  14. Or rather, what /I/ will

    Just realized it was based on 12th night, which I'm not familiar with. looked up the synopsis and now I plan to read it. I have this faint memory of seeing this play ages ago. I like your storyline better though.
  15. Or rather, what /I/ will

    i fucking love this!! Great rhythm, i love the old-fashioned pacing. Feels like an epic or folk tale. Going to go read it again.

  17. Screen Overdose

    So much has been going on I hardly have time to hear my thoughts I just keep going on and don't Really give myself a soulful rest I'm plugging-in to story scapes Trying to give my mind a break The buzzing of the vibrations of constant stimulation Never turns off, but changes Throbbing, robbing my senses In a pool beneath the world Sloshing and stagnating at once I am dissociating When I sleep it is shallow My breathing keeps time to sporadic Metronomes, going on and don't Really have a consistent rhythm I'm plugging-in to story scapes Trying to give my mind a break The buzzing of the vibrations of constant stimulation Never turns off, but changes Throbbing, robbing my senses In a pool beneath the world Sloshing and stagnating at once I am dissociating
  18. Coexistence in B

    this is beautiful. the whole poem feels like movie takes. I especially love the structure of the first stanza, feels like little snapshots the vignette-like atmosphere makes the poem feel very personal and intimate. great use of language, too. your word choice really brings the narrative to life. (echoes remain, rattles on, spilled-ink black, jittering, addictive blue, rolls over bodies,limps us home,....) some of my favorite sections are: -Hydralio

  24. polling!!!!!! heck yeah!

    I would say gage how the blog may be helpful and how it might not. What kind of things are you planning on posting? If you decide the blog is more likely to be helpful, give it a test run; try it out for a week or month and see if you get the desired results. Wishing you the best. -Hydralio
