Description: This was the hardest poem ever to edit (god I hate that stupid code) but I feel that the fonts and layout used are very important in this piece. So I hope you like it and please leave some feedback, even if you don"t.
electromagnetic radiation of a single wavelength -------------------------------------------
I really like this piece of urs, Paradox! An entangling of opposites, within opposites, within... My favorite part was "there is no shadow/ darkness without light"! You spin us in a spiral. Brilliant! Bravo! Will get to more of ur work, soon... Check on more of my shite, maybe at least one will show u I have talent (like u) :-D
@lori Electromagnetic radiation of a single wavelength is one of the definitions of the word monochrome. That's what this is: a simple sketch drawn with an old pencil on dusty paper. :) So yeah, if you view life from above, that's what we do here: we breed and we fight and power is at the center of this. I know this is a simplistic view point but that is intentional, in a sketch the most you hope to do is to catch a certain thing, maybe exaggerate it, the one that made you wanna draw it in the first place. The rest is left empty like a piece of old paper...
This hurts my brain in really enjoyable kind of way.
Initially I'm reminded of a Tool song called Disgustipated that features the repeating lines:
"This is necessary. Life feeds on life feeds on life feeds on life feeds on. This is necessary."
And so on.
Then I'm drawn in by the format, looking for other patterns.
Monochrome Darkness Melting
Still Simmering Power
I like the balance throughout, and the examination of balance within. Black and white, light and shadow, men and women, power and progeny. The unavoidable un-escapable cycles that we all float on top of, carrying life and death from start to finish.
I'm sure there's more to your meaning and would love to know what your thoughts were going into this.
