Mark's Pre-Tengaged Writings Series: Entry 1 - "The Twilight Fire"

Jan 9, 2017 by Icarus_Mark
I think I’m going to just start this a few people early.  So anyway, I’m going to start off my series of pre-Tengaged writings I’ve done with a poem I’ve written back in 2007 (I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since I wrote this lol).  I’ve started off with this one because it’s the easiest one to find.  I’ve submitted it to more than one venue (an International Poetry Contest that went back in 2007, the High School poetry journal, and my college newspaper).  It was this poem that got me writing poetry for a few years to come and it’s actually the first poem I’ve ever written.

“The Twilight Fire”

Sunset skies swallow my heart with your love
It reaches out to the stars above
In the coldness of winter yet soft as a dove
Fires of passion flare out from my love

Reaching and teaching us along the way
The winds of twilight blow throughout the day
Though our minds be made of clay
The twilight fire is all that burns in the fray

Soon some sad songs sing of seraph skies
We must then descend until the fire dies
Yet when morning hits these seraph skies
We shall find a way we can again rise

An angel calls us in the fires of twilight
We descend into darkness in fright
Hurting us during the separation of the night

All eyes see night as an evil spreading through the floor
Daytime is a light few can adore
Though Dawn has us swimming far from shore
The twilight fire burns forevermore

There is more poetry to come, and I have at least one short story, though I’d have to check.  But yeah, this was the first of what I’ve been able to retrieve.

PYN if you want to be tagged for future pre-Tengaged writings:



It is good :)

Thanks TaraG!  :)  When I first presented it to my English class at the time, everyone there loved it, so that inspired me to write more.  ^_^

It must have won something Icarus_Mark ?

I wish lol TaraG, but I didn't win the International Contest with it.  It did get in the high school journal and the college newspaper when I submitted that poem to those.  :)

That's good, it looks like it was hard to make and that it took you a long time, you're good at poetry.  if I someone said write a good poem or die to me, I would die.

Thanks TheKevmiester!  :)  It isn't the easiest thing I've done, true, but I don't think it really took me that long to make either.  You just have to have the right inspirations and then it just comes naturally from there.
