Catherine Kale

I lied! I have one more upload, 'Man and Beast' will definatly be my final upload, because there isn't time to squeeze in another ticket. Hopefully though I will be here just in time to see how well the poem is recieved. Admittedly it isn't my best, I wrote it in about 10 minutes. Don't let it put you off though, feel free to browse my other works, and leave a ka-gillion comments.

Never wish to see an Elf

When something as beautiful as an Elf exists, there is always going to be danger. Please, read this before you consider looking for one, you might just change your mind. Ok, so I know that this one doesn't always flow, and there are a few lines in there that might only be there because they rhyme...Please bare in mind I was ill when I wrote this! Comments are always welcome, and if you like this one, please feel free to wonder over to my other stuff, and comments on those as well :)

A Ghost Forgotten

A short poemPeople think that once you die, that's it...well it's just not true, you can die twice, for if a ghost isn't rememebered, he is lost forever. That's why they try so hard to scare you!

Stop your song, the magic's gone...

This is the second time I have uploaded this story. The first time it was rejected because it didn't contain enough of a fantasy element...don't worry mod's...I'm not started a revolt, I just want to explain myself. I have added an extra verse which will hopefully mean that the poem is accepted second time round, and if not, then my explanation will... This poem centres around the death of a wizard, and supposidly after he died, he took with him all of the magic. And now as the people stand around his tomb, they realise that the rest of their lives will never quite live up to the standard of when the wizard was alive, because they are human now, and everything just seems bleaker knowing that magic no longer exists. It's not so much about fantasy, as it is the end of fantasy, and for that reason I hope it is accepted. Also I might add, the reason I resubmit this poem is because I wrote it after someone close to me died, and it hurts that the thing I wrote to remind me of them was turned away, and I felt that if nothing else it deserved another go at being published. Thanks

City of Sin

I tried to upload this one a while back, but only once it was rejected did I realise I'd forgotten to mention anything to do with fantasy....opps...I've since then changed it, and hopefully all is now well. I like this one very much, and I hope you do too. My second mod's choice! Yey! Completly unexpected, but very well received. Thank you whoever chose it. 15/7/05

To The Tune of the Blue Bells

This poem was written after reading this poem: http://elfwood.lysator.liu.se/libr/a/i/ainacatrine/faeries.txt.html?_=1094913596 I loved the line about dancing to the tune of the blue bells, I thought it was really sweet and innocent, and so with the authors kind permission, I wrote my own poem. Sadly the whole line doesnt fit with the rhythem of the poem, so I had to cut it down, but I still think it sounds really nice :)

I dream of centaurs in the forest

I am the wild one, your way into the land of magic and make believe... Follow me.

When Fire and Ice Fell in Love

This is the third time I've tried to upload this, each time I've had problems with bad language. I think I've got it sorted now, but if not, I'm gonna give up. Personally, I like this one. I wrote it (excluding changes by order of mods) in one evening, and it's my first long(ish) thingy! This is probably as long as my stuff will get.Enjoy! P.S There are a few places in this where for some reason my computer (or Elfwood, I don't know which) decided that they didn't like the spacing of the story and decided to move things about a bit. I've tried correcting, but it doesn't seem to work. I've read the story through, and everything seems to be in the right place, so I'm not going to worry about it.

Man and beast

I seem to have a knack at entering poems without having expressly made reference to fantasy. Surprise surprise I did it again. Basically the story goes that this is a last man standing at the end of a great battle. Everyone has died except this one man, whos best friend still lies in the jaws of this beast, but you know what, he's ok with that...so long as the beast dies.

Goose bumps come easier in the dark

Once again, this poem was inspired by another… http://elfwood.lysator.liu.se/libr/a/i/ainacatrine/the_undead.txt.html When re-reading this through, I always kinda imagined it being read with a german accent, so if you want to get the full effect, that is what you must do.It would be really interesting, if someone wanted to draw the Booger man, so if anyone wants to do that, let me know, and we could sort something out :)

Watching you while you sleep...

Have you ever opened your eyes and found a beautiful elf lying there next to you... no? Well, me neither, but we can all dream...

Letter of Love

Don't wait until it's too late to tell someone you love them, otherwise you might loose the chance altogether...

Untitled 1

This is an old one I wrote, ages ago. Please comment, I'd love to know what other people think...

Your shadow is your best friend

Just an idea that came to me one day, not my best.... And yes, I realise that the last line is not centred, I've tried, but it wont seem to stay in the middle! damnit!

Take me with you

I seem to be writing a lot of this sort of thing recently. There are a few bits in this I'm not entirely happy with, but I'll upload it anyway, and see what people think. If I get a good response I wont bother changing it. Mods choice on the 24th of September My first mod's choice, and I'm over the moon! Yey! *does stupid 'I'm so happy' dance*
