It’s been a long time since our last daily poem, and the poetry has been anything but daily.
It’s not that I haven’t written any poems, I have, but I just haven’t published much on The MAG Zine for a while in general.
Well, let’s hope we can change that, and maybe you can help me.
The MAG Zine needs your help to publish quality poems on a daily basis.
I’m lucky if I can write one good poem a year by myself, and I’d be happy with one great poem in my lifetime, but if any readers out there contribute your own poems and enough of you contribute, there’s a chance we may be able to put a few good poems out there for all to read.
Please feel free to submit your poems, we’ll be more than happy to publish them.
Here’s mine for today. I’ve been working on simple poetic formats with basic rhythms and rhyming while trying to pull meaning out of the contrast between dark language and light format.
Here’s an example. Please feel free to leave your comments below:
Lie in My Bed
In death I’ll lie where fishes sleep
below bottomless oceans still less deep,
far underneath the netherworld
where no shadows from the surface swirl,
and finally I’ll empty my head
of dreams for what was once undead,
and let my story go untold
as endless darkness forever unfolds.
