Empty Roamer.

Bereft of love,
I search this land,
Searching for that blessed heart,
To take my love in hand.

Filled with grief,
Heavy if heart,
I search for my forever love,
The one to tear my grief apart.

I roam this land,
I hunt day and night,
To find that certain one,
That one of love at first sight.

Lawrence Cottam 2015
Sun Spurned.

Afire with passion,
Burned by the light,
I retreat into darkness,
I embrace the night.

One with the darkness,
My flesh becomes cold,
I haunt the Realm of Nightmares,
I'm a terror to behold.

My thirst consumes me?
My hunger's so strong,
I will never again know sunshine,
To Mistress Night I belong.

Scars.


I wear my scars like armour,
I wear them to protect from harm,
Some say they make me look like ugly,
I say they are part of my charm.

Sleep Soundly.

Under the Mounds the Heroes lay,
Gripped by Death's eternal sleep,
Their battles were all long since fought,
And they had no more promises to keep.

Under the Mound the Warriors were,
Their weapons covered with Time's rust,
They have rested their for centuries,
Their homes long since fallen to dust.

Under the Mound the Fallen rested,
No one living remembered their name,
They who fought for causes long forgotten,
Their lives lost in the King's grand game.

Under the Mound the Dead waited,
Waited for the Wheel of Fate to once more turn,
Then their eyes would once more open,
And their last for War would once more burn.

Shadow Man's Game.

The Shadow Man silent watches,
His patience is vast,
He waits as humanity make their wagers,
He smiles as the dice are cast.

The Shadow Man softly whispers,
His voice is as slick as silk,
He whispers to the hungry and desperate,
He cajoles the greedy and their ilk.

The Shadow Man silently plots,
He has his schemes and his game,
He is the brother of Betrayal,
And Downfall is his middle name.

The Shadow Man smiles quite widely,
His eyes all fiery and wild,
He is bad luck personified,
He is Madame Night's misbegotten child.

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.

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.

Evening,

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.
