Tonight at the dverse poets pub Ingirid invited us to take a look at pain in poetry. I have gone with the pang of guilt i felt at putting a heckler down at an open mic. I have suffered at the hands of bullies a lot in my life and even now i still feel guilty at standing up to them. i know i should not but i cannot fight my inner empath.
ttonight on dverse i have discovered yet another gnre of poetry called “pangyeric” her is my first attempt. i may not have caught this poetry ball correctly. but we do all need to stretch oursrlves in order to improve.
The first thing i ever tried to write was a novel based around the diary entries of three main characters. set in the future looking at the effects of the AIDS virus on vampires. it had stalled at 30,000 words and been forgotten about (for 20 years) untill the first lock down here in England. now standing at 76,000 plus all it needs is a convincing middle. tonights Haibun at Dverse gave me the idea of adding a Haiku to an entry to a musicans diary ( John Eccles one of the main characters) entry to kick start start his song writting. #writersblock, #dverse
John Eccles: – Eight hours of sitting in a room of grief. That’s how long it took to get to speak with each of the families of those who dies at the hands of Eddy. That’s it our legal representative has informed us of the legal action being taken against us. We are no longer able to legally perform to a live audience. As we there is no market for recorded music since the streaming revolution any more that is us done as a band. We are going to stay together as we are family for most of our members.
The writer’s block I am suffering has broken. The grief this has brought on is cursing through me waking the song writer in me while bringing my heart down to one of life’s low points. With the following haiku making the chorus to my next song. Hopefully this will express our regreat over not giving Eddy enough support in these hard times.
