Monsters' Call.

You fear us in the the dark,
One the sun has gone down,
When we dance through the night,
While the sky wears it's starry crown.

You shiver under your covers,
And fear us under your bed,
You run from us in nightmares,
While Lord Morpheus veils your head.

But some of you crave our touch,
And some of you yearn for our bite,
And you long to join our dance,
And play with us in the velvet of sweet Sister Night.

Lawrence Cottam 2015

I knew you before I met you,
I heard your soul sigh,
We have lived many lives together,
With a love that never will die.

I dream of you often,
I see you always with my mind's eye,
You are always in my thoughts,
And through my dreams you always skip by.

Lawrence Cottam 2015
Sad Rain.

Tears like blood drop, fall and fast,
For sadness has come to stay,
Grief holds on with a grip that will always last,
In the land where Death does hold sway.

Lawrence Cottam 2015

When you see monsters everywhere,
How do you recognise Angels when they come to call,
When you spend forever in darkness,
How do you notice when you begin to fall,
When you believe you have absolutely nothing,
How do you know when you have lost it all.

Lawrence Cottam 2015
Survivors' Guilt.

Those who are left alive,
We all lament those now dead,
And often rage against their deaths,
And wonder why we did not die instead.

Lawrence Cottam 2015

Let's see. I am a writer of a variety of genre in a variety of sizes from short stories to long form 500page plus sized works. I write poetry as well.

I dabble in weird toon work, having my own 'strip' called Strange Days and different works on a few different characters like Bedlam Boy (The Master of Chaos) or Freezy the Bipolar Bear to name two.

That's about it about what I do.

I am married, have a beautiful wife and two awesome sons.

And I cannot think of anything else to put.

Personal Quote: "You will all bow down to my superior smartitude!!"
  • Mood: Optimism

I know I am behind on answering comments etc. Sorry about that. This is the time of the year for me I get the most writing done, hence the flood of poems.


I will be out of communication from 10am today and for 4 days in total so you will all be safe from more writing for a bit. :)


I was hoping to have new pics uploaded before I left but that fell through.


I will answer all comment people have posted for the new poems and thank those who have faved new pieces next week.


Please keep my wonderful Wife and Muse in your thoughts as she is having surgery this week, hence the trip.

I would like you to become apart of an event I'm hosting for the literary community of DA. We need as many deviants to participate as possible.

We're hosting a contest/event for their deviations of writing deviants to receive commentary, critique's, and feedback. And during the month of late August, there will be grand prizes.

I was wondering if you would like to join? We're more than happy to have you! I do hope you accept my personal invitation.

Here's the reason why...

I'm creating this very large event because I’m sick of so many deviations of wonderful literature barely getting the attention they deserve. In fact, there's really only two ways this tends to happen. It’s either solicited by Spam or added to a Group—who doesn’t even help in the department of honest feedback.

You can’t tell me you’re not fed up. And I’m sure most of you didn’t come to deviant art just to store your writings.

So I came up with a theory, what if they had the opportunity to get the attention they deserve and more? Would they be willing to jump on it?

Of course they would!

Let me ask you this, what personal connection do you have to literature? It's almost as if literature is the air you breathe, no?

As I've stated again and again, I have a goal to bring the Literature Community of Deviant Art back to life. I’m sure I’m not alone and I’m also 100% positive this isn’t the first time you’ve seen this type hope become crushed.

And I’m sure you’re asking, “Alright, how many times do they have to submit something to a group and still see no progress in feedback? How many times do they have to join these events and it’s never legit enough? What makes Your Group so different?”

We’re here to help… That’s the difference…

This isn't about Popularity... It's all about Literature & Commentary...

WE all know the literature of deviant art is slowly decaying and it's time we strive to do better in the community.

I just need you to join.

Thank you for taking your time out to read. If you're interested in participating, here's the [link]. I look forward to having you.

No problem. Any time I come across amazing work that is also inspiring I have to watch the creator of the work to see what they come up with next.

yeah well my dayjob takes so much time that most work showing up in here will propably be photography, but I'll try to manage to make some handywork aswell :P

Because I do writing, drawing and painting, I am sitting one a massive 'to scan' pile so I totally understand how life can get in the way of making art.

I look forward to seeing more of your photography as you have an awesome eye.
