The Shore of Limbo

Poetry about longing, nightmares and insanity, mostly expressed in the fine form of Shakespearean sonnets

I certainly hope you’ve also felt “No, no way this is mine. Who wrote this? No really, Google doesn’t have any results for any of these lines? Did I write this? No, I couldn’t have. [Friend’s Name] have you been using my laptop? No… well okay. Huh”

Shh… You are upsetting the artificial intelligence that lives in my laptop. We do not talk about her. Please never indicate her existence ever again.

I really love that feeling when I read a poem I wrote months ago and just go: “I can scarce believe I wrote this.”

Inspiration Creek

Inspiration courtesy of my-classic-love

Thou art a friend and verily thou showst
That in an endless stream for drips of wine
Thou seekst, that their true value thou well knowst:
They bleed in ink from souls not unlike mine.

And as each river yearns to meet the sea,
With those alike his product then to merge
So by a common search for beauty we
Connected are, which made our paths converge.

And thus united by a common craft,
We can each other inspiration bring
As from each other’s work ideas we draft
As spark of fire from torch to torch might spring.

From this connection shines a brighter light
And flows a river with much greater might.

“A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.”

Allanegory

Master of the sonnet
whose muse of inspiration
styled your finesse
I look and read
wanting more of
what I see
Continue with verse
and friendly conversation
Dear friend
this gift
is heaven sent

Many a poem did I write
Bout an enchantress, and a fae,
Bout a mad violinist’s fight,
Bout fleeting life and slow decay.

While I no inspiration lack
At times I motivation need
But there was one to have my back,
Encouraging, this need did meet. 

A friend, a mentor and a guide
To show me where I never went
Who did expose my words to sight
Of people for whom they were meant.

My voice gains strength with every word
That thanks to Lauren now is heard.

I wanted to share this poster we made for the Graphic Design Festival Breda which was held last month. We designed a typography poster with a visual update of a quote from the movie Fight Club. The poster was one of the winners of the Reflect - Poster Project.
The movie Fight Club was released in 1999, a pre-social media era. Tyler Durden was literally talking about our possessions, and how they can dominate and take over our lives. Fast-forwarding to the present there might be something else that made us slaves to our possessions. Putting Tyler Durden’s statement in a whole new perspective.
