July 24th…

July 24, 2011

Hello to anyone out there over the interwebs. Here is a little one is scratched out over the week. Again, it has only gone through 2 drafts. Usually I like to let my poems settle for a while before doing a final draft. It is good to get perspective on anything you do and from a distance we can see what should be done.

It is a pretty straight forward poem of some of my thoughts. The voice is quite pretentious, and I have even mentioned this in the poem, and I can see myself in the final draft changing this to something more straight forward, honest and real, but I don’t mind it, too much.

I’m listening to one of my favourite band’s new album today and their themes are usually a light-hearted take on horrific themes. I am slowly accumulating an anthology of horror and dark (Some might say gothic, but I don’t think so and I loathe to use that word. Well, maybe a little, but it has some bad connotations, too. Let’s stop thinking about it…moving on…) poems and I feel this one would fit in well.

I had some thoughts about the name. Sacrament gives it a religious ring. A sacrament being some small action that basically shows our piety to god or that which is greater than us. In this poem, it being death. I also thought about calling it “My own” as you can see the repetition of this many times. Or maybe if I wanted to give it a cheesy name, perhaps “The Grim Reaper” or “Death stalks!” Nah, I didn’t think of naming them like that. Perhaps I will write a fun, cheesy and macabre poem and give it a name like that later.

Those are all the thoughts I have left for now.

Peace and regards.
