Knot – A Slice of Life Poem

Now here’s something I had never seen coming. A short-lived inability to get my shoelace untied leading to a poem. Hey, it was a really frustrating tight knot and anger is a great inspirer of art! … Ah, who am I kidding. I struggled a tiny bit and then the moment I noticed a part got stuck around the shoe’s tongue the knot was easily untied. And then a silly poem with a bit of faux dramatic narration started to form in my head and I wrote it down. The last part is a reference to a film my friends and I made in middle school about the myth of Theseus. At one point Herakles comes by to save Theseus from the underworld and gives the great ‘hero’ pretty much the same overly obvious advice that is given here. ^_^

When will this blasted knot untie
When will this lace get loose
When will I solve the puzzle
Of this newly cropped up noose

I have no sword or lockpick skills
My fingers won’t fit through
That tiny loop the lace has left
Oh, what am I to do

Then out of nowhere does it speak
A wondrous voice of hope
“There is a way to end your plight…
You just untie the rope…”


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.
