A cataclysmic clash
Of forces mighty
And those small,
Yet strong of heart.

The winds of a mining town
Blow through the corridors,
Gale of the world blasting
Round to the tip

Of a southernmost
Forlorn islet
Where hope seems lost,
Yet there is always a way.

Sailing ships
High in the skies
As the sunset and breeze
Cloak us in a moment

Of much-needed respite.
Our hope in each other
A faith that our bonds
Shall release us from

A realm so dark,
A world so bleak.
Sunshine comes not
From that tower’s rays.

Magic and armor,
And a song from her lips,
Burst forth into a new day
With comrades at my side.
Rebellion
Final Fantasy VI fan fiction poem - I'm trying my hand at writing a generalized poem about one of my favorite subjects, and my favorite video game, to date.  This is the first poem I have written in four months, and my first fan fiction poem that I have written in several months.  I decided to make myself do this, because I'm afraid I might be losing my poetic touch.  So if it sounds a little forced, my apologies.  I thought perhaps if I wrote about something I'm passionate about, and I am very passionate and am very much a HUGE Final Fantasy VI fan, as many of you may know, that it would be a great way to be motivated into writing more.  Would love to hear your thoughts/praise/criticism.

****This is a work of fan fiction. I do not own the rights to this video game or any related media - this is a copyrighted game from Squaresoft/Square Enix and the name, characters, storyline, and any other pertinent information are entirely their property. I wrote the words of the poem and own nothing!****

Finally did a restoration blog on a vintage doll that I have been working on.  I can post a final pic on my gallery here when I have her look completed and finalized.  If you would like to check it out:

I still don't know when I'll be posting more art and writing on dA, but I'm working on it.  It's aggravating trying to pull shots from my "good" camera, since I have to use a card reader (that seems to have a short in it or something) for the transfer.  I have actually been writing a lot, but not poetry.  I have been working on my novels and potential short stories, so I've been pouring my energy into those.  Not sure what will become of them, but we'll see.

I've lost some friends this year ... some because they departed this world, others by their choice, others by my choice.  I would like to think I have made friends, and I have reconnected with old friends, which is a great feeling.  I've struggled with my own perceptions, feelings, emotions ... forgiveness.  I have come to realize what should be important, but only because I've made a lot of mistakes to get there.  I have made very, very, very poor choices the whole year through.  But I would also like to believe I have made sound decisions, as well.  

I think, as all of us do whether we admit it or not at some point, I am coming to terms in facing my own mortality.  None of us can live forever, only strive to live better and enjoy each moment of this life that we can.  I would like to think I have several more good years on this earth, but that certainly isn't up to me.  I don't know what tomorrow brings.  I don't know if my broken heart will ever heal from the repeated fractures over these past few years from loss, heartache, and my own exorbitant stupidity.  But I know I can strive to at least wake up each morning, put a smile on my face no matter what happens ... because this is all we've got, when it comes down to it. And I have a lot to be happy about, and a lot to be thankful for ...

If only my silly self would wake up and realize it.  :p

I am a poet with a day job. My writing is sporadic at best ... I either write one poem every few days or weeks, or I write a bundle of poems in one sitting, usually on weekend nights. I'm into a little bit of everything, as you can probably tell by my devART page! I enjoy helping people out and sharing art of all types.

There are all kinds of places to find me on the web. Won't you be my stalker (just not the creepy kind)? :heart:
