A poem I wrote and decided to record a recitation.

http://theheartgrinder.newgrounds.com/ liked it enough to make it ambient.

I think it turned out pretty awesome.

Full Poem:
Pride, Swallow
Angela Malzow 2013
Echo, be thine light
Shine unto me and crave
Illness of separation
From self to dust
And spread me thin
Among the seeds
Of infinite eyes
Glancing at thee
Acrid is the ardor
Of pleasures bound
Thus forward I see
To seek and surround
The pews of myself
With the deadened doubt
Wither the flowers of mourning
And watch thine tears shine
A scarlet mist my lungs release
To shower my pale flesh
Expose the will of the weak
Tear down the barbed fences
Allot this space
Of disgrace
It's mine and solitude
Drawn in chalk
Down your spine
As a winter chill
To ice thy eyes
Weather this torment
As a storm of needles
The end, once in sight
Will be a sour reward
I paint the blade
Across the surface
Of an unending day
And forget to regret
All the things that I'm
Too cowardly to say


cool poem, nice voice that seems monotonous, giving off an interesting scary tone.

I must admit this was really cool! Heartgrinder really laid down a nice feel for the spoken poetry. I agree with 'LasciviousGork' this could be a cool introduction for an album of some sort.

I'm pleased that you enjoyed it.

This should be the introductory to an album. Or the beginning to something. Something much bigger.

Too fking cute. On your front page on your favorites box lol So long as it's the front page somewhere, it counts. Amirite? lol *hugs*
I am honored *bows graciously*

So glad you enjoy the poem and HG's work on it. I have a feeling this will happen again soon, he is very energetic about it. I am just trying not to smile myself to death.
haha Hearing the sound of my own voice... tends to grate on me but a lot of people feel that way so I know I'm not alone. However, HG made it tolerable ^_^ lol *points at him for the awesomeness of it*
