Welcome to the second page of our November Edition.
We have some interesting pieces that will hopefully get
you thinking (and maybe laughing)….




_Essay_



Meet your Nemesis


by Kiddo



Why do some people put themselves down?
It's because they want the natural euphoria of being
reassured that they are fine. They want that feeling
of relief. It's like a psychological drug, to give you a
happiness so high that it goes away before you even
know what hit you. Some might say that this is self-
destructive behavior. On some level it is. It's like a certain
saying I've come across: Why did the man keep hitting
himself with a brick? Because it feels so good when he stops.
It's like forcing yourself to stay outside on a scorching day,
just for the feeling of relaxation when you step into your air
conditioned apartment. This brings me to my next topic:

The brain conspires against itself. I came across this
belief when talking to a young homosexual who has just
came out of the closet. He said that after he thought
about his attractions, he noticed that he really didn't
feel any attraction to females. And yet, he cried when
his girlfriend broke up with him. This is sounds ridiculous.
The fact that he never really liked women, yet he felt so
intensely when his female partner broke up with him, is
ridiculous. But in my mind, believable. The mind was getting
worried. It knew, deep down, the negative things about
coming out. So, just like any right mind in its right mind
would do, it tried to rescue itself. It fooled itself, much like
saying something that goes against what you really believe
until your whole outlook changes. It hid the truth in those
dark corners of the mind, the ones that could only be accessed
by deep thought. The thing that cause the deep thought for
this young man was his gay friend. This person knew exactly
what he was getting into when he decided he was gay, because
he knew what it was like to a considerable degree. He also knew
the negative affects, and the mind decided that the good
things weren't worth it. And for a while, he believed this.
But, when faced with something straight in front of you, it is
extremely hard to hide.

Another case is of one that could actually help you. In a way,
though. If you are in an entire school, and you act different
(gay, lesbian, Goth, whatever), you deny yourself. Only
superficially, though. Its not your choice, its just the right
thing to do. When someone else is acting weird, and the
others laugh, you have to laugh, too. If someone is getting
picked on because they use certain words that are dubbed
"stupid" or "complicated" or "confusing", you make a note
in your subconscious that says "Don't ever use that word."
And for a while, you are safe. You are Anonymous, just another
part of the crowd. You don't want to be the center of attention,
you don't want your faults to be obvious to everyone.
And for awhile, this can actually work.

This is until you begin to get so used to it that you believe
that you are smooth sailing enough to start to reveal your true
self. And this is when it all starts to fall apart. One minute, you
are Jerry the Normal Guy, the next minute you are Jerome the
Eccentric Loner. And by that time, you have confused yourself.
Now everyone's having an identity crisis and it all goes down
shit’s creek.

A double edged sword. You can risk the identity crises for
a few months or years of fitting in, or you can start out as
yourself and endure. Unfortunately, your subconscious is
going to know the default answer. It has come to a decision.
A decision you don't know about until its way too late.

Its creepy, isn't it? You always thought you could trust yourself.
Now, you have the chance to be a double agent. On your
conscious's side, pretending to trust your unconscious, but
really trying to catch it in the act of conspiring. That’s the
only way I can think of to escape the inevitable.

And this brings me to my conclusion. You try to save yourself,
but in most cases, you can't. Even if you try your best, this is
the default. Meet your doppelganger. The only advice I can give
you on this is: trust no one. Especially yourself.

Thank you and good day,
Kiddo.


And now

A Word from

Max Million


Max is a frequenter of the RP section, a friend of Kiddo,
and writes poetry on occasion.


ESM: We interviewed your friend Kael in the last issue on the
subject of RPing; is there anything you have to say yourself about
the RP section?

Max: In all honesty the RP section has gone down hill. Not just a bit,
but a lot. There have been ideas thrown around, some good some bad,
on how to solve all the problems the RP section is facing. Right now I think
it's in limbo.

ESM: You are open about being a homosexual; what concerns you
about the subject of homosexuals on eliteskills?

Max:

Really that there is a good number of homosexuals on ES, yet we
have no way of letting it become known. I mean it's not like I'm asking
for a gay pride day or something. Just some recognition.

ESM: Are there any problems or issue's that you would like to see
addressed in the continuation of ESM?

Max:

First and foremost is the restoration of the RP and poetry sections
of ES. That is the biggest problem facing us and, as such, it should
be addressed first. ESM: Do you think ESM has been useful in it's
purpose of improving interest and feedback on this site? If so, how?

Max:

I personally think ESM has been very helpful in its purpose. As with
most media outlets it helps to keep members informed, especially of
the parts of the site that need to be fixed.

Death’s Wind

By vencix


As I stand in front of your tomb stone,
Thinking of what the life we could of had together,
Crying and trying to dry my eyes,
but I can't because you left me behind
With nothing but a memory of what we were,
as a cold wind starts to blow.
I put on my jacket and start to walk home,
But even though it is on,
I am cold;
And as the cold seeps into my bone's,
A cold sleep takes hold.
And as I turn around and look at your grave
and head towards it,
I fall.
As deaths arms embrace me
and the wind blows
I fall into an endless sleep,
Never to wake up again.

____Welcome to Page Two.____


On this page we’d like to honor a few

Writers who are devoted to their genre of poetry

and would like to have a say about their work.


Reporter: Jeniffer
Interview: crestfallenman
Theme: Dark and gothic (whoo hoo)




*crestfallenman*


Name: Alex Bony
ASL: 19/m/CAL
Writing style: Dark and dramatic
Favorite metal band: Cradle of Filth
Awards: two for a great rewrite.

A word from crestfallenman on his looong epic poem,
In One Final Desire.

ES:
What inspired you to write such a poem?

CFM:

To place it into terms, I was inspired by the bloody countess
Elizabeth Bathory, that most on this site probably aren’t familiar with.

She was a noble Queen in Hungary, way back in the 1500-1600 hundreds.
She was considered the most infamous serial killer in Hungarian history,
who spent most of her life in Cachtice Castle. After her husband’s death
she and four others were accused of torturing and killing dozens of girls
and young women. She bathed herself in her victim’s blood to maintain her beauty.
In 1611 she was tried for it, but never sentenced to
death, for her nobility. Actually the story has inspired many.

Cradle of Filth’s 2001 album was an album of her biography, and I wanted
to do the same, even though this poem wasn’t about Elizabeth at all;
I kept it as Religious Fiction.

All in all what inspired me was the darkest side to the Catholic Church;
I wanted to flare a bit more I would say revenge then an evil
theme inside of the epic, but that whole flare of evil never leaves
my side in any poem, as you can see as you read it.

ES: What is it about, in a nutshell?

CFM:

This poem, despite its Satanic aspects, it's cruel and vivid imagery
of torment, it’s bias of hating God and criticizing a religion, has a deeper
message that I hope everyone can see, and that is about an innocent
woman who was taken of her innocence through the refuge she had
once had (the Church), and rage and fury begins to boil inside of her.

To place it into short, she seeks out revenge and sees that the religion
she once had through her revenge, is filled with a whole bunch of hypocritical
perverts that need to be brought about death. The poem is about revenge
and a story of an attempt to end the pandemonium inside religion. Yet
at the same time it is about a love for revenge that is taken to far in the
characters eyes, and she begins to devow her whole life into the devils hands;
she begins not only to execute and torment her tormentors, but many other
innocents, for wealth and fame of her beauty that the devil had promised her.
Soon she begins to become brainwashed ith the love of murder, which leaves her
to her lamentful death.


ES: About how long did it take you to write?

CFM:

Well, I started the poem in the
beginning of April and wasn't finished with it until the end
of the month; I worked off and on from work, but I would say
it took me a month to write, due to corrections, staying on
topic, and researching the tools that I used in my write.

ES: Will you be adding to it?

CFM:

That is a hard one, since my character has
died, I can't simply add to it. But yes I do plan on adding to it
due to the thought of inventing her resurrection.


ES: Awhile back, some people got mad about
things you were saying around the site; you said that
it wasn’t you, someone had stolen your password and
wreaked havoc under your name. Would you like to
clarify the truth about that?

CFM:

I can assure you and assure you again that was not me. It was my brother,
who had found my password and simply wanted to bash everyone on this site
under my name. It got even harder when I vented to a past ex girlfriend about
it and she created an account and basically it started raged war all over the place.
I promise you Eliteskills, I have been a member of this site for over three years,
I mean no harm to those, and I have apologized to all of those that were ever
involved inside of this site about this misunderstanding.
My apologies again to those who were involved.




*(*)*(*)*



Here we would like to honor
the blood, sweat, and tears that was put
into this write by crestfallenman (literally!).
It is the longest poem he has ever written.





In One Final Desire



By crestfallenman




“A crescendo of faith, so enticed,
By glory and the pride of virgin hide.
The paths we have created, the tide to vice,
Would be spiteful as dogma can thrive.

Look upon the generations of faith,
How can one gleam that claim away?
From their guilt; not their ignorant face,
And sun set shall foray light astray.

As the opening eye in the morning awakes,
The hallowed and the cursed bring horror.
As the seraphim smites lands he forsakes,
Of us sinners that bonfires promises in war.

Humanity!

Welcomed this desire today,
This better infamy, this better end,
That will feast our souls forever, in nether,
And bring ill exit as it gleams all hope away!"




And now the story begins...

Due to the disturbing content of the rest
of this poem, it doesn’t all appear here;
this is a link where you can read it in it’s
entirety and give him your thoughts and suggestions.

The Execution and Homecoming

Expectations sting more
Than the actual
Sever
ing

In a second it is done
Beyond repair

…Shock…

I am haphazardly
delivered

The blur is over,
Like I had never lived it.

My home, every need
Furnished unconditionally

Helping me, f o r g e t. . .

The only reminders are
Unexpected smells
that cause me to
pause.

My Dearest

-=Bass=-


So proudly we glanced upon the moon,
When it was not all there was to say,
Shining from your eyes of doom,
Escaped from the burning hay.

Dare you see a soul upon the heat,
Then crouch within the door,
To her desires screaming upon my feet,
But when the vivid ore.

That thou hast her, it is not all my grief,
Yet I dreamt of my love so dearly,
That she hath thee, is of my wailing chief,
A loss in love that touches me more nearly.

Thats the dream im chasing for thee,
The one hidden behind the shelf,
Neither thou or I hath lost the key,
But thou must find it yourself.

My secrets being is my nearest,
Though it shall not be my thought,
Cause thou my love is my dearest,
Still every token is yet to be taught.

Still the moonlight is there to see,
Within thy sparkling eyes,
Flawless we dance, you and me,
Between all the lies.

Let not my love be called idolatry,
Nor the death of my beloved show,
Let me praise the word for the beings to see,
To one, and one, still such, and ever so.

Water

By vencix



Water
It moves with nature,
it flows with the land,
it’s white rapids flowing over the stones;

fish swimming up river,
to nest and to give life;
bears clawing at the fish
to feed their young.

Water supports the world
and I think it is
what will always be
the way of life.



Sky

By vencix



The sky
ever so blue like the sea.
the clouds like white rocks in water.
shaped to what you want it to be.
The air crisp and cool to the breath.
The jet stream pushing the weather
every which way.
Birds flying high, soaring.
The sun burning, giving life to the plant.
Plants growing towards the sky.

**Lyrics**



We Are (From Spiderman 2)

Ana Johnssan

(sent in by Azuire)


See the devil on the doorstep now
My oh my
Telling everybody, oh just how to live their lives
Sliding down the information highway
Buying in just like a bunch of fools
Time is ticking and we can't go back
My oh my

What about the world today
What about the place that we call home
We've never been so many
And we've never been
So Alone

Keep watching from your picket fence
You keep talking but it makes no sense
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are
You wash your hands
You come out clean
But fail to recognize the enemy's within
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are
We are

One step forward, making two steps back
My oh my
Riding piggy on the bad boys back
For life
Lining up for the grand illusion
No answers for no questions asked
Lining up for the execution
Without knowing why

Keep watching from your picket fence

It's all about power, bout taking control
Breaking the will, and raping the soul
They suck us dry 'til there's nothing left
My oh my My oh my

What about the world today
What about the place that we call home
We've never been so many
And we've never been
So Alone

Keep watching from your picket fence

It's all about power, bout taking control
Breaking the will, and raping the soul
They suck us dry 'til there's nothing left
My oh my

Crazy by Dead_inside

Crazy? I was crazy once! They locked me in a padded room! I liked it there. I lived there. I died there. They buried me there. They buried me with TWO flowers. One grew up and one grew down. I didn't like the one that grew down. It tickled my nose! It drove me nuts! Nuts? I like nuts! Peanuts, walnuts. Walnuts? Yuck. I don't like walnuts! There gross. They drive me batty! Bats? I like bats! Brown bats, fruit bats, vampire bats. Vampire bats? Ew! I don't like vampire bats! they drive me crazy!

And now...a word from wewak:

Political Correcchtness


Watch political correctness? Maybe critical politeness!
don’t you dare to say the things that you may think;
Just to call a female “Lady” is an area so shady
it’s much safer to say “person” - dodge the stink.

No, that fat man isn’t fat, sir, don’t let anyone hear that, sir
never tell a blind man that he cannot see;
If you read the daily papers all the boomer future shapers
have now printed up a list of things PC.

All the schools have outlawed Noddy cos his morals seem quite shoddy
in a bed with Big Ears? (isn’t that name wrong?)
But if dear old Enid Blyton should attempt to start re-writin’
she would have to read the rules and tag along.

Take dear Winnie and the Pooh Bear, there is such a lot to do there
even Humpty Dumpty has his share of heat;
They will tell you that it’s sleazy calling Humpty over-easy
he has simply failed to land upon his feet!

So then what of young Jack Horner, why was he stuck in a corner?
when a special school was there to do the trick;
If the Dean had hired a tutor surely Jack would be a suitor
in a haystack with a virtue-challenged chick!

Oh my God, I mentioned chicken! Watch the tree-hug vegans sicken
just the thought of eating flesh will make them quake;
They are loving, kind and gentle (though they seem to worship lentil)
it’s no wonder they’re as skinny as a rake!

Well I simply must away now, I’ve attracted CIA now
and the Poetry Police want me in court;
If old Santa causes shame well, don’t hold older folk to blame, hell!
it was innocence and love that WE were taught. --

_Funny lyrics_


I Wish I Were in Love Again

Artist: Frank Sinatra


Writer(s): Rodgers/Hart


The sleepless nights - the daily fights
The quick toboggan - when you reach the heights
I miss the kisses - and I miss the bites
I wish I were in love again

The broken dates - the endless waits
The lovely loving - and the hateful hates
The conversation - with the flying plates
I wish I were in love again

No more pain - no more strain
Now I'm sane - but I would rather be punched - drunk

The pulled out fur - of cat and cur
The fine mismating - of a him and her
I've learned my lesson - but I wish I were
In love again

The furtive sigh - the blackened eye
The words: "I love you - 'til the day I die"
The self deception - that believes the lie
I wish I were in love again

When love congeals - it soon reveals
The faint aroma - of performing seals
The double-crossing - of a pair of heals
I wish I were in love again

No, no more care - no, no despair
Now I'm all there (now) - but I'd rather be puncdrunk

Believe me sir - I much prefer
The classic battle - of a him and her
I don't like quiet - and I wish I were
In love again - in love again - in love again

Junk Food Junkie
Larry Groce
Written by Larry Groce

Released by Warner Bros. Records in 1976; playing time, 3:03
Was Groce's only hit, making it as high as #9 on the _Billboard_ Hot 100




You know I love that organic cooking
I always ask for more
And they call me Mr. Natural
On down to the health food store
I only eat good sea salt
White sugar don't touch my lips
And my friends is always
Begging me to take them
On macrobiotic trips
Yes, they are
Oh, but at night I stake out my strongbox
That I keep under lock and key
And I take it off to my closet
Where nobody else can see
I open that door so slowly
Take a peek up north and south
Then I pull out a Hostess Twinkie
And I pop it in my mouth
Yeah, in the daytime I'm Mr. Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I'm a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me
Well, at lunchtime
You can always find me
At the Whole Earth Vitamin Bar
Just sucking on my plain white yogurt
From my hand thrown pottery jar
And sippin' a little hand pressed cider
With a carrot stick for dessert
And wiping my face
In a natural way
On the sleeve of my peasant shirt
Oh yeah
Ah, but when that clock strikes midnight
And I'm all by myself
I work that combination
On my secret hideaway shelf
And I pull out some Fritos corn chips
Dr. Pepper and an Ole Moon Pie
Then I sit back in glorious expectation
Of a genuine junk food high
Oh yeah, in the daytime I'm Mr. Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I'm a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me
My friends down at the commune
They think I'm pretty neat
Oh, I don't know nothing about arts and crafts
But I give 'em all something to eat
I'm a friend to old Euell Gibbons
And I only eat homegrown spice
I got a John Keats autographed Grecian urn
Filled up with my brown rice
Yes, I do
Oh, but folks lately I have been spotted
With a Big Mac on my breath
Stumbling into a Colonel Sanders
With a face as white as death
I'm afraid someday they'll find me
Just stretched out on my bed
With a handful of Pringles Potato Chips
And a Ding Dong by my head
In the daytime I'm Mr. Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I'm a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me

~Star Flakes~

by borderlinetears

the stars fell from the sky last night.
staying up to watch the stars
shimmer and streak the sky,
we never noticed that they
were actually
fall
ing

to
our
heavenly oasis
in which
our bodies were

disheveledupon.

star dust awoke us this morning.
disguised as misty morning dew,
and i could’ve sworn it was

December

by the icy glazed liquid
gracing both our fatigued faces.
but we soon realized it was

September

because when our lips
found themselves

immersedtogetheragain,

the taste of
summer star flakes
caught between
our tongues
and felt more exciting
than the first
fall
ing

of winter snow flakes.

Some love poems from the American Album of Poetry, ninth edition 1942, from between the bookends of Ted Malone.


Remembering the Dark

I'd like to be the lightning,
A golden shaft from God
That strikes into lilies
And the soft brown sod.

I'd like to be the silver
That zigzags up and down
Across the blue heavens
And through the great town.

Yes, I'd like to be electric
A quick come and go,
For just being human
Seems so very slow

Oh to mix in a motor
And drive a great machine:
Yes, to be a force eternal
That can never be seen.

Yet here I stand so puny
Among the race of men,
While there a great dynamo
Chants 'lectricity again.

But when think of loving,
I can't admire sparks;
My mind runs into rhythms,
Remembering the dark:

And when my heart caresses
I like to linger so,
My lips seems to human,
Love won't let me go.

So when it comes to loving
I'm not a shaft o light:
I'd rather be a woman
In the soft black night.

--Rosalie Goodyear


Phantom

Last night when the moon was free
I sent a breeze as messenger
To brush a kiss across your lips.
did you turn your head, alert,
Because it ruffled up your hair
So like my fingers, light as air?
did you close your eyes to dream
And hear the rustle of the leaves?
It was my echo, whispering
My heart, my soul, belong to you!
And always, when the moon hangs low,
should you but pause and wish for me
You will feel my presence near,
Lingering in every shadow
Beneath the pale moonglow of night.

--Guanetta Gordon



Interval of Flame
I should have met your tentative caress
With frosty eyes, or cool deceptive lips.
I should have feigned a somewhat startled air
And held you off with warning fingertips.
No doubt the old traditions have their place
Wherein the man pursues, the girl withdraws,
or simulates a passive attitude -
And yet, my dearest one, in that brief pause,
before your lips met mine, I quite forgot
the careful, stilted role I should have played!
I couldn't see your eyes, but at your touch,
some wild sweet madness stirred my heart and made
me lift my lips to yours. I took your kiss,
more tremulous and shaken than you knew.
And yet not caring if you dimly sensed
With how much eagerness I came to you.
Your hands were gentle, and your tenderness
Was something I had never known before
I felt as though you took me by the hand
And led me through a strange enchanted door
Swung open by the magic of your kiss.
Beyond which there was neither time nor space
nor anything I knew- except for this-
an interval of flame in your embrace.

--Sylvia Gordiner Lufburrow

-------------------------------------------
Mood: The Usual

THIS IS A MESSAGE, NOT AN ISSUE YET

Welcome to Page two of ES Magazine. I'm your writer for page two, Jeniffer, and I hope that not only will I have contributors, I will have co writers and maybe an editor. I think it will be less work for each person if we have some separate writers for this page.

PM this page or Jeniffer if you would like to write for this page exclusively, meaning only for page two. Page two will likely have a flavor that distinguishes it from the first page; there will be features and articles that are exclusive to page two just as there will be for the front page.


The new issue is due tomorrow, Saturday, but I might have to make it a day late. There is some information that I really need for members to send in; don't hesitate to help me out by sending in suggestions. If I get enough by Saturday, I will be able to post it in time; otherwise we'll probably have to wait until Sunday or Monday for the second page issue.

Here is the information I need ( PM Jeniffer or ES Magazine p.2):

(The next issue's theme will be romance)

.Whatever great love and romance pieces you can find on ES, and anything else appropriate

.Any blogs or websites you would like to see the links to advertise either on the front or second page

.Any messages or dedications you want to see here. Romantic would be the best, but any kind will be great

.Lyrics! Songs titles!

.New members you know of, and if you don't know any, get the names of one or two and PM me

.Any veteran members, friends, great writers on ES that you know of


Help out further by telling your friends to come see this page and send in suggestions!

It will be a really great debut issue, so help me get it ready and up ASAP.
