I’m happy to present and share with you all, my newest video poem entitled “Deeper”
I at first thought this poem a little “creepy,” but I showed it to my dear friend, sim partner, and expert blogger, Happiness Merryman, and she said she found it lyrical and deep, not as creepy as my warnings had stated. I just know the subconscious as well as the bottom of the ocean, hold both fascination and terror for this woman, ever since she was a little nightmare- proned, destined -to -be- a- poet, waif in the jungles of Costa Rica.
I am drawn to the depths, and yet…..well I think my poem and this video says it better than I can in an introduction. I will only say a few more things. This machinima was filmed on my newest world I created on Kitely – Virtual Worlds on Demand, and also on my earlier world of Water and Glass where I filmed two videos, “Water and Glass” and “Shooting Star” Deeper is sort of a small underwater journey through tubes and portals until you get to the… well the deepest part. Both worlds are public, free of charge and can be entered through these links:
Water-and-Glass or Deeper. I would love any intrepid grid hopper, and those who don’t yet know they are, to come and visit me. I will be happy to give you the royal tour.
I did use my new 3D Navigator Mouse , albeit sparingly, as there was a problem over the weekend (maybe my server end) of getting very erratic bandwidth and lousy fps. Ahh but when that gets cleared up, I can see it will be wonderful to use it full time.. So without further chatter on my part, I give you “Deeper” and as always I just hope you get comfy, while you take five minutes out of your day..and Enjoy!!
If thoughts could be held like prisoners,
I would hold mine back from walking too near the sea.
I would not allow them to break the rules, and be swallowed by the monsters
that always are pursuing them and me.
I would sit in quiet satisfied complacency, and no
temptations or jeers or manipulations could break inside disturbingly.
I would not go down below the level of the ground
I would not go deeper… where there reigns only the unknown and its sounds.
I do admit the deep part has its draws as well as dangers,
confusion in the dark can be so inspiring at times,
but I have seen the sorrowful mistakes with my unfocused eyes,
and felt the fear envelop me… so make no mistake
I do not wish descent as an escape,
and pray that sleep protects me from this unwelcome state.
Yes I know that way way down, there is some beauty to be found,
but I would not go down below the level of the ground.
I would not go deeper where there reigns only the unknown and its sounds,
where hideous creatures and their thoughts strive to reach their dream,
to catch me unaware with no vigil and no warning,
to come up swiftly from underneath and when I least expect it...
and when I think I am the victor,
roar with all their power and… swallow me.
