This is the follow up to The Grand Show, and it's twisted in all the best ways.
Take a step into the human psyche with this unique poem by LG Rogers.
The Grand Show Step right up, step right up, And step right in too. I welcome you heartily Into this grand wonder, Into this grand mystery: This grand canyon of […]
To escape your place in life, you must have a plan.
Sometimes the greatest stories are never told.
Certain things you just have to experience to understand. And sometimes the feelings these experiences bring about are too much to handle. So our only defense is to let ourselves drift away like tears in the ocean.
When Death finds you, pray he puts you to sleep gently.
What is it like to be a low spirit wandering through life?
Gruesome and vivid is the best way to describe LG Rogers' newest poem, Seventeen Steps Below.
Poetry has a way of touching us in ways other art forms cannot. Whether it be through emotion, cryptic meaning, or thought provoking rhyme schemes. LG Rogers succeeds at all of them with her poem, Shadow of Things to Say.
LG Rogers shares with us a very vivid and unsettling poem.
The poem that follows is full of rhyme. It’s full of darkness. It’s full of thought. It’s full of sh– well, that, not so much. However, just try not to […]
Did you ever wonder, “If only I had x amount of dollars, then I would really be happy?” There’s also a phrase: “Money doesn’t buy happiness.” These sentiments are quite contradictory […]
Writer's block; a cursed obstacle so many have run into. It can make one almost go... mad? LG Rogers gives us another uniquely grim short story with, Blink.
Being a writer of macabre poetry can be frustrating. Sure, you think you're writing great stuff, but it seems like all the likes and retweets fall to the flowers, puppies, and kittens. You know, all that uplifting stuff. Pfft, like who needs that? Seriously. Okay, I get it, maybe we all need some positive thinking now and again. However, one would not understand positive if not for the negative. Balance, my friends, balance. Besides...as I'm sure Stephen King would tell you (because, you know, I'm totally close to his level of awesomeness [sarcasm alert]), sometimes darkness is just fun, damn it. So is rhyming. Enjoy.
Darkness has a way of tricking our brains into thinking that things may be lurking in those safest of places, when, in fact, they are not. As darkness is the absence of all color, so too, shall the color drain from us when left ambling alone in the darkness. Sometimes, the irrational fear is merely a trick of the mind, a game of a mischievous soul. Other times...it is not.
The world is vast and wondrous. It holds many secrets, societal gems and unknown cultures. What would happen if people used to the chaos of the concrete jungles ventured out into these hidden wonderlands? Would it be a dream vacation full of serenity and beauty? Or would it be...something else?
