A Lonely Mathematical Story

asymptote-definition

Huh? You may be wondering, “What’s the point of the definition above? Isn’t this a poetry blog? Or has this blog turned for the discussion of mathematics?”  Don’t worry, this is still a blog for poetry.

The word Aymptote is our word for the day. It’s not that we are having math or vocabulary lessons here but it’s a very important word to understand my new poem. See, I found this contest on Math poems and decided to write one.

The definition above from Wikipedia must still be unclear for those who are not inclined to math (especially its haters). So to better understand, here’s a graph.

asymptote Still, what’s the point? If you look at how the parabolas (or in more layman’s term, curves) are drawn, you can imagine a sad story in which two lovers’ destinies are not meant to be joined.

Well, mathematically, asymptotes are not really to graph lovers’ destinies. But as we use our imaginations, we, writers, are free to come up with any new ideas. So here’s my math poem, Geometry’s Melancholy. I have tried my best to write this in terms that can easily be understood even to those who do not really like Math. Hope you’ll like this poem, though.

Behind that Fake Smile

The poem, Abstract Prisoners has been added to the menu. This isn’t exactly a new poem. I wrote this at the beginning of this month but only get to post it today. It’s a poem that I feel really strongly about.

The title, Abstract Prisoners, refer to the emotions we have but we try to keep. We imprison them in our hearts as we project a perfect mask.

Hope you’ll like this poem. I will really be glad to receive a feedback or two.

A New Twist to the Story

When I read about this contest, I thought maybe I’d try to submit an entry. I had no idea at first of what to write until I thought of a twist to the original story.

I wrote the poem in the younger guy’s perspective. While crying in the woman’s grave, he’s reminiscing their moments together. The poem clearly depicts the relationship they had. A warning though to those who’ll read this poem, this contains a lot of adult content. This is actually the first poem I write with such.

To continue with the story, another man who’s clearly older and more mature came to visit the woman’s grave. Also reminiscing his memories of the woman, the younger guy overheard his cries.

So, what’s the twist?

The twist is in the reason the woman had for having two lovers. The two sides of her: the dominant side (could only be satisfied by the younger guy who’s submissive to her) and her submissive side (could only be satisfied by the older man who possessed a great sense of authority over her);

The poem is written with a lot of imagery and adult content that are not suitable for readers under legal age. I GREATLY DISCOURAGE YOUNGER AUDIENCE to continue reading the poem.

For those of legal age, you may read the poem, Stained Innocence.

How did it go?

Oh well, it wasn’t first prize but I had a good time writing the poem as I was able to write something that is out of my genre. As I mentioned, it’s my first poem with adult content.

An honorable winner is good enough for me as I know that my poem has been well-received. I got nice comments too to go with the recognition. Though, I would really be glad if there will also be feedbacks coming from readers of this site. Hope you can take a time to read the poem and let me know what you think.

The Final Entry

Two nights before, I stumbled upon a contest with a very interesting black and white and picure.

It was nearing midnight and the contest was about to close in just 1 entry. As I felt the urge to write about the picture, I wrote a short poem to submit. Luckily, I managed to become the final entry. The poem was judged shortly afterwards but I didn’t win. It’s alright. The winner’s entry’s an amazing one. I really loved it.

Anyway, hoping to share with you the poem I wrote from this picture. Here’s the poem entitled. Aftermath. Hope you’ll like it.

Just Waiting to be Published
