Double Dose Weekend 14.1. To My Heart’s Discontent

Sometimes I wonder about my mind and the countless streams of thought that roam through and occupy it. I had planned to write a short poem for tonight. Some ideas had come to mind and I was eager to jot them down and present the result. It was going, fairly well and I was ready to storm right through it, when I suddenly just stopped the writing dead in its tracks. Doubt beset me and before the work was even finished I somehow felt that posting it would just be a bad idea. It’s completely stupid and that there’s really no discernible reason for it. I quite like what the poem was becoming, and while it’s a touch personal that has hardly ever been a reason not to share something before. So, until I’m over this idiotic and inexplicable uncertainty the poem’s staying in the vault. In its stead another one, on the just described thought process and how I feel about it.


To My Heart’s Discontent
The words arrive, the writing comes
Straight from the heart they sprout
But in the the head a tiny voice sounds
“Should I get this out?”

Uncertainty and doubt appear
The mind it turns unsteady
And though it knows there’s naught to fear
Declares “No, I’m not ready”

“Now’s not the time to show this work”
“Who knows what will be said!”
The frightened thoughts then gather quick
And fill all of the head

With sadness filled the heart then sends
Back all the words and writing
To wait for when they can be heard
Once reason wins the fighting

About

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.

Hi! ^_^
