Title suggestions welcome


Recommended Posts

Sitting cross legged on sea dampened sand,

briny water ebbs and flows across naked feet.

The stygian sky offers nothing for the ebony marble sea to reflect.

Silence except for the comings and goings of relentless waves

breaking on and retreating from the shore.

A light pierces the atramentous sky, a singular illumination

born light-years ago to disrupt this darkness.

Fractured upon the reflective sea and cast back into the sky,

A thousand lights, born of one, begin their journey

to a darkness light-years hence.

nice imagery. But as for title suggestions that's something up to you I think --
or atleast I can't think of anything. Our titling styles are completely different haha.

my trick in cases like this are to put the main words that describe what's happening in the poem into a thesaurus and see what comes out as a good combination of words.
so... light/illumination + breaking through/shattering + gloom/darkness/a mist


"Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends.

There is a secret song at the center of the world, Joey, and its sound is like razors through flesh."


"I don't believe you."


"Oh come, you can hear its faint echo right now. I'm here to turn up the volume.

To press the stinking face of humanity into the dark blood of its own secret heart."

"There's a starving beast inside my chest
playing with me until he's bored
Then, slowly burying his tusks in my flesh
crawling his way out he rips open old wounds

When I reach for the knife placed on the bedside table
its blade reflects my determined face
to plant it in my chest
and carve a hole so deep it snaps my veins

Hollow me out, I want to feel empty"
-- "Being Able To Feel Nothing" by Oathbreaker


"Sky turns to a deeper grey

the sun fades by the moon

hell's come from the distant hills

tortures dreams of the doomed

and they pray, yet they prey

and they pray, still they prey"
-- "Still They Prey" by Cough
