Write about a land or world like it is from a story, movie, or game. It must be your own and from your head. Write about the creatures and towns and well any sort of randomness in your world. Other than that, no rules.

Here's this one I wrote for a friend. But I'll be back for a more official entry
A Call To Arms
Rise up mortal gods and take up the pen
For it is mightier than the sword and it's edge has no end
It's power only limited to the depths of your mind
And if you search them long enough you will find
Those forgotten souls who crave resolution
Whose lives were forsaken in the wake of pollution
They search for their honor, love, power, or fame
And all they have done has been in your names
So are not they deserving their final rewards?
To find love, to be crowned, or master the swords?
Give them their lovers, their riches, their thrones
Help those who haunt bring rest to their bones
For if you do not and pass on, it is to be feared
That your worlds will be known as The Lands That Disappeared
All Mad, All The Time... or die trying.

I volunteered to go down
Into the mines and further
We were going to map the underground
Publish the results and plan
The colonization by man
The subterranean depths
Were awesome to see
Caverns like those never seen before
Caverns built like Cathedrals
By a hominid race
With whom one day the expedition
Came face to face
With the natives of this nation
They looked like us but were palest white
This comes with living with no light
Their bones were lumpy and slightly deformed
Some skulls looked almost like they had horns
Male, female, child all spoke a language
Unknown to the earth, communication was attained
Using a computer decoder and we knew we had found
One of the ten lost Tribes, except this was the eleventh
Apparently constant persecution had driven them
Underground, where they practiced their religion
That predated Christ, barely resembled Judaism
Called themselves "older than dirt"
Said they had been around and witnessed it all
Come, their leader said...we will show you around
An escort of soldiers and large men
Led us into a library which they said
Had the documents of the the Great Libraries
Like, Alexandria, now thought to be gone
It seemed that they knew all about man
And we knew little about them
We mentioned Satan
They said it was a myth
So who do you worship?
They pointed to a hollow cavern
They said their God had no name
No shape, no form, HE WAS THE ONE
Who would come and take them HOME
No idol worship, remarkably human
We expected demons, they said they were common
They called us demons when they thought
We did not understand
They called the world above - HELL
They said they had found the PROMISED LAND
And it was not in Israel, or Mecca, or Vatican City
It was down here, in the underground
Which they civilized to look pretty
They gave us room and board
The Jesuit father said they must be converted
In order to save their souls
The Army Major said "they all must go"
The sociologists and anthropologists
Protested fiercely...they wanted to study them
The earthly party could come to no agreement
The Atlanteans as they called themselves
Came as a delegation
Asked us kindly to leave
Or they would be forced to kill us all
Unless we all became one with them
Never to return, never to remember
We were astonished that such gentle
Knowledgeable people would resort to this
But they said we were INFIDELS
And did not deserve to live
Unless we laid down our artillery
Changed our allegiance
Converted to their religion
Never have contact with those above
Astonished, we did not know what to do
So they made a sacrifice
The Jesuit Priest offered to go
To save our human lives
This was still unsatisfactory
For the army men
So the next to be killed humanely
Was one of them
The scientists were to be spared
As they posed no real harm
And the three woman in the expedition
Were not to be harmed at all
Thus was the end of the expedition
The earth had a mystery on its hands
I am now writing this
To document my conversion
To document what happened
To those who disappeared
If you are reading this
Must have found my manuscript

The village within a forest Ever tranquilly serene Fenced by thick gigantic trees Standing tall reaching for the skies Looking up as if in plea To be away and earthbound free
Within the village There is a seer A medicine man A shaman And a chieftain To whom all defer to Their words are law All yes no nay
The people live in avid fear Of flying metals And flickering boxes Of water in steel tubes Of flashing fire in glass confines Of tall people without their skin Their eyes blue-peeled from the skies
The village within that valley Thrived on in harmony With nature at its best Hands clawing the land For food Drawing water with bamboo To quench their thirst
Until a strange man came With a crossed book on his hand Thundering words of fire and brimstone Brown eyes flashing fire With words ugliness he paints Everything the people stands for Showering guilt on their wondering minds
Sleepy village A church spire Two padres Six altar boys Congregation of fifty five Babies born to be baptised The shaman has left For places unknown.
Ephesians 2:8-9 :For by grace are ye saved through faith not of works lest any man should boast.

LIVING IN MY FANTASY WORLD
I prefer my fantasy world
Coloured in pale pink and blue
Seas that you cannot drown in
Skies of multiple hue
On little islands
Sleep and dream
Love and lounge
Half fish, half human
In and out of natural fountains
Falls, and waterspouts
Our skin of luminescent colours
Or of chameleon palettes
Our eyes, like cats, orange wide
Our hair, all colours, long and wild
We eat the fruits of seaweeds
Pick the flowers of the islands
Drink from the dazzling dew
Talk in voices that mesmerize
Speak of poetry and love
Send our thoughts on wings of light
Touch, cuddle and provide delight
For we are a democracy
Of fugitives from sanity
Tired of being unequal at birth
We flee here to be accepted
In whatever we wish
To be manifested
So we can be shape-shifters
Magicians, liars, familiars
We have finally found
Freedom to be
Not judged by others
For things we never asked
So I invite all those
Who do not fit it
This fantasy land is unlimited
There is only one law here
Love each other
So we all heal.

Dragons rise above our heads, In their stead the sea. Crashing down in salty waves, Upon the sandy grains.
Mountain tops spear the clouds, A mighty throne indeed. A castles worth of memories, That all take place in me.
Gates to guard, and safely keep- The innocence we all seek. To hide from us, the past I loved, When I was a magical keep.
Wizards march out nobly, To defend the green grass land. Swaying softly to and fro, Begging with it's touch- never, never go.
A shining land of crystal towers, Sparkle in the sun. Where boys and girls climb for hours, Up the shinning powers.
This land has yet to be complete, A growing nation for my needs.
Dungeons for the dark, Fields for the laughter, Magic for the mystery. And my soul tumbling in after.
“That's a cute sentence: the years to come. Why are you so sure they're coming?” -Ayn Rand, We the Living

I walk amoung the field of paper flowers, Past houses made of colored glass, I reminisce about the future, And worry to much about the past, When a fish flies by my head, I stop to admire the veiw, And by the lake the birds swim, In schools of red and pink and blue, When I awake at the crack of night, There are many things to be done, When daylight breaks, it becomes to dark, For there is no fire on the sun, I sit to stare at my watch, As it slowly counts back from L, I hold my wife so miserably, Causing her to want to expel, And when the sun reaches the sky, We stand up against the bed, We snuggle close to the edge, And fluff the rocks where we lay our heads.
Do now...and ask questions later. There will be a later if you do what you need to.

Nobody Wants to Die Alone
They decided to swap keys and let each other in to try and melt some glaciers and shift some plates. They dreamt of earthquakes; murmurs will suffice.
They painted silicon rainbows on each others horizons, planted plastic flowers in each others gardens then they smiled as they inhaled them every morning. They'd rake up tears from could of been fields and rain on each others worlds. When wet, it almost looks real so let it pour.
The rainbows need a new lick every few years, the flowers never die and the rain's in abundance causing rivers to invade flourishing, pristine oceans and on these oceans they will sail because nobody wants to die alone.

A Bat Night ~~~~~~~~~~~~
In the night five stars and three bats Soon there will be too many to count... bats that is
The bats take the unwanted from the sky for their meals But they also expand their appetite
Clouds obstruct my grand view of heaven The breeze is nice Wanted affection on my skin as I reckon this to be my last hurrah
There was a time In my ancient memory of crickets serenade the sleeping grasshoppers who danced themselves to exhaustion
The grass is cool and the minor annoyance of the train interrupts almost chasing away the creeping thoughts of my reality
The effect of God's tv has slightly numbed the imperfections of the day Replacing solace and peace with an eerie acceptance
In the night I am only me under this universe of stars hidden by the frenzied calm of ravenous bats

In this dark little world On a familar plain Bodies lie in ditches Crisp from the flame
Gummiebears are evil And rainbows can't help but bleed And tears fall like bullets Piercing every seed
Nothing new grows, everything remains A ghoulish decore Bedecked with brains
Zombie's inhabit it Trudging silent and slow.. I could get used to this place And it's beastly glow..
My wonderland, Just the way I like I can hide away in the morning And come out at night..
