When I was younger and still in highschool I had little to no interest in poetry I was kind of an ignorant kid

But recently I have been writing these phrases or paragraphs of contradicting words

Like lyrics but I have no intention of using them for music
(Well maybe not just yet, I'm no Bob Dylan)

But is what I am doing considered as poetry?
Here are some examples of what I have written recently







The damp will suffocate me
Will turn me into a wet and cold thing
Loosely dripping onto whatever I'll be able to reach

Attracting you the sweetest of waters
Using you for my bitter self
Only knowing the cruelty
Of what we will all be

Being somewhere else is easy
Often going away too see what is unseen
By so many before me
Won't there be another?
Afraid of what you wont see




Traveling to the end
The end of you and you only
Will I be able to accept it?
The everlasting grief
Will come so quick
Will it all be worth it?

Where will I appear to be?
In the ground with the forgotten
Remembered by few
Amongst you with saddens
Being unable to see me

Life returned
Extinguished flame
It cries out to him
It will return


Not in the ground
But on top of it
Our bodies will not rise

We will

And we will not be many





And also...





The long tomorrow


Endless waiting
won't it come?
How will I be able to be?
Endless waiting
Will it come?

The long tomorrow will never be
Seeing is all I have to be
The long tomorrow
The no tomorrow

Why is it hard to be?

Only knowing
What you'll be
Won't it be able
To be free?

Abandon the often though
Of your face
Why won't it ever be?





So will somebody explain to me what it is I am doing and if I am any good at it? Help me understand poetry? Somebody anybody? Help?

And we will not be many
Returning
Is there life after death?
Will we return to a paradise on earth
With many people long dead?

Maybe maybe not



Am I getting the hang of this poetry thing?

Recently I have been writing these kinds of poetic passages
I don't really know how to write poetry
Would you class this as poetry?
I am not an often reader of it either but I think I have some understanding of it


Or at least a simple grasp
What do you think?
Loading...
Superheroes are what got us into this mess.
Do you ever think to yourself when your bagging and boarding your latest issues of the most popular heroes on earth "why comics?" Out of anything it had to be comics...

Well me neither I love comics, I breathe comics its in my blood.

But recently I have been turning away from american comics
And by American I mean Marvel and DC.

Our first loves in the comic world I'll tell you if it wasn't for spiderman I wouldn't of made it through highschool

But back to my point for the past few months I haven't been paying attention to like likes of marvel and DC but instead reading comic books by Alejandro jodorowsky a cult film maker and comic book writer one of his many famous series is the incal with the great and powerful Jean Giraud illustrated beautifully may I add its a shame such a talented fellow passed away not long ago...

Marvel and DC are a company
To them comics are a form of entertainment to make money
And sometimes good stories
They don't consider comics as a valid art form

Stan Lee is a businessman
Jodorowsky is a artist

European comics are taken seriously
They are an art
In western civilised country's comics are considered
As a child's thing
The reasons for this is the camp television show batman
Not the gritty frank miller and jeph Loeb batman that we all love

Anyways I am just rambling on here about something that nobody will read....

Am I the only one?


Anyways here are some great none superhero comics you should read

Y the last man

Preacher

Akira

The incal

Scott pilgrim



Sorry for the
I dont know childish bitch fit that is my conscious....




I love marvel and DC
As much as the next guy
But I'm getting into more safisticated comics?

Anyways give me recommendations!
I have had this feeling for a long, long while now, the feeling that will never go away and that feeling is helplesnes.

I just don't have it in me any more, I am not inspired or motivated to do anything with my ideas I just can't think straight creatively let Alone in my personal life.

I haven't hit a creative wall or anything I know I haven't us being artists we know when we have hit the dreaded what do I do now? Phrase...

I am just tired of not being appreciated or noticed by anybody in real life or online and that isn't the sad part, the sad part is that nobody will reply to this haha

This is a cry for help, take a chance on me? Please?
Pretty please with a cherry on top? No? Oh fine....

Story and art by Billy Kay
Issue one


(Opening panels will be mostly be surrounding areas and settings?) 
(The environment around) (Focus on background) (Add captions and speech bubbles) 

(Banner caption) 

“I don’t like sand.”
“I prefer the water.”

 (Shot of a desert waste land) 

“People think that Sand and water are two different things 
Like the desert and the sea.” 

(Panel of a cloaked man walking in the distance) 

“In a lot of ways there the same thing.”

(Close up of the cloaked man, he is dressed in heavy desert gear lots of robes and goggles to protect his eyes from sand storms)


“It’s not like the sea but in ways it reminds me that 
The sea is not as lonely as the desert.
The sea can move it, it looks alive.

(The man pulls out a pair of binoculars from his satchel that hangs besides him) 
(He pulls them up to his face and is looking through them)
(The panels show him looking through the lenses into the distance he sees nothing but sand and shimmering heat)
  
“The desert it makes me feel alone.
Just me and the heat, and the journey ahead.” 
(A full splash page of the character standing over a hill of sand with the title displaying next to him) 
 

“Water it is life it is what we need to survive.
To live we need it in our system.”

(Small sand storm passes over him as he is tracking down a steep hill of orange sand)

(Flashback) 

Caption: “Daddy?”

(A full panel of a young girl holding his hand they are at a beach) 

Girl: why is the water so beautiful?

Caption: she loved the water

(He looks up as if he is upset) 


“Sand it reminds me of ash.
Denudation of what the earth was.
The Scorched orange ashes of the old earth”

(He reaches for his water bottle)

“Humans are like plants in ways we need water and sun light to survive
Without them we will wither away and become un-healthy”

(The cloaked man with his bottle in hand looks up and holds one of the goggles lenses he stares at the sun) 

“But even to much sun light can kill plants.” 

(He takes a drink from his bottle but finds out that he is empty of any liquid)

“What I would do for some water right now...”

The cloaked man sighs.
