A sleepless night is always a good time to write... right? Well, not sure but it's then that I usually feel inspired to write and today is one of those days.. It's 4:00 AM now and I've given up trying to sleep so here are my few "insomnia" lines.. well, now that I think of it, that could make a great title.. so here we go.. :



Don't think of me, I'm already dead.
It's just that my corpse won't lie down, so I lie up

I pretend you never happened, that you didn't mess me up
Maybe someone will believe me, maybe I will fool myself

Then you might be gone for good and I'll finally get freed
Be like you, a new man, without your haunting presence in my need.

It should work out pretty well or at least that's what they say,
only they are never up for it to estimate the day

So it's patience I'm told, that will smoothen up my way,
Is my mind just joking me or is it really, really late?

Never mind what's in my head, I'll just keep on carrying on
Being thoughtless sometimes helps me, saves up power to move on

Show yourself a little faith, never know what lies ahead
If it's getting worse and worse then just hope to see the end

..end of every wish in vain, depressive fog or lonely rain,
when the sun is not enough to warm a ground so cold and rough

But you've surely held your ground, gave your all till you run out
Now there's not much left to win, apart from whys to figure out

It's alright you lost the fight, maybe next time you'll survive
with what motives, tricks or will, how could I know, you tell me.


Well, that's it.. oh, and please remember that "non-sense" makes sense in poetry.
I hope you like it. Feel free to comment if you did.

Trapped within the dream and your goodbye

Hello everyone.. I got ugly inspired this morning got a virtual pen and paper and wrote down a few depressing words.. so I thought it would be deadly cool to share 'em with you. Enjoy! (And keep away from anything sharp.. )

Trapped within the dream and your goodbye

Once again I wake up with red eyes without cries,
then your smile brakes my silence with goodbyes
Once again I realise I'm not too much awake nor asleep,
never thought your mark could leave a scar three years deep

Something's wrong when nothing's goin right
Ugly feelings live and grow old in my broken might
How to separate my mind from what I see
all of that connection cause my inner will to bleed

After setting fire to the your image that was left
burning my desire in your never-failing theft
You took everything from me, left only one last breath
so that I could die alone, without you being there

Why oh why, can't I lose my freaking mind
so that my deadly past could finally be left behind
Why oh why, can't memories be washed away
so that my slow low life could get back in the time's highway

There's no cure, no drug, no doctor's recipe
that could heal my damage till eternity
Maybe I'll be proven wrong, maybe one day I will cry
standing trapped within the dream and your goodbye

Thank you for reading..!

My Life In Your Eyeshine - Η Ζωή Μου Στη Ματιά Σου

This is Solid Snake and I'm back with a new addition to my collection of poems. Once again it is written in greek, so you might wanna translate it in order to get an idea of what it means. No I haven't switched to greek, maybe this is the last one.. so I hope you still enjoy your stay and I still hope to see you again.

Για άλλη μια φορά στο ποίημα που ακολουθεί χρησιμοποιήθηκε η ίδια μέθοδος με το προηγούμενο. Και αυτή τη φορά περισσότερα από ένα άτομα συνεργάστηκαν με έναν ενιαίο στόχο και το αποτέλεσμα είναι και πάλι όμορφο και με καλή συνοχή. Αυτή τη φορά, οι στίχοι είναι στραμμένοι πρός τη θετική πλευρά του ζητήματος. Θα καταλάβετε τί εννοώ αμέσως μόλις αρχίσετε να το διαβάζετε. Ελπίζω να σας αρέσει λοιπόν. (Και πάλι οι συντελεστές είναι στο τέλος).

«Η Ζωή Μου Στη Ματιά Σου»

 Είναι τα μάτια σου ουρανός
μέσα τους ταξιδεύω
βρίσκω κόσμους μαγικούς
και το φιλί σου κλέβω

Μα ούτε μάτια, ούτε στόμα
ούτε όλα μαζί ενωμένα
δεν επαρκούν για να σου πώ
όσα αγαπώ σε σένα

Όσα ποτέ μου έχω βρει
κι όσα για πάντα έχω χάσει
βρίσκοντας την αγάπη σου
τα έχω ξεπεράσει

Πόσο μωρό μου σ' αγαπώ
και ένας στραβός το βλέπει
και εσύ μου λές δεν γίνεται
δεν κάνει και δεν πρέπει

Είναι στιγμή μοναδική
όταν τα μάτια σου δειλά ανοίγεις
και σ’αγαπώ κάθε πρωί
μου σιγοψιθυρίζεις

Όταν σε έπλασε ο Θεός
δέν είχε φέξει ακόμα
γι' αυτό πήραν τα μάτια σου
του φεγγαριού το χρώμα

Και άν πέφταν τ’ άστρα σα βροχή
και η νύχτα γίνει μέρα
το φώς δε θα ταν αρκετό
να λάμψει σαν εσένα

Αν κάτι σε στεναχωρεί πολύ
και σε γυρνάει πίσω
τότε τα δάκρυα μ' ένα φιλί
με μιάς γλυκά θα σου σκουπίσω

Πιο εύκολο μου φαίνεται
τ’ αστέρια να μετρήσω
παρά εσένα αγάπη μου
να αντικαταστήσω

Όπου και αν γράψω σ’ αγαπώ
με τον καιρό θα σβήσει
γι’ αυτό το γράφω στην καρδιά
και ώσπου να ζώ θα ζήσει

Μπορεί να είμαστε μακριά
πολλά να μας χωρίζουν
μα η καρδιά και η σκέψη μας
σύνορα δεν γνωρίζουν

My Obsession - Εμμονή μου

Hello, again! This is Solid Snake and I'm back for a new post. Only this time, this "poetic moment" will be completely different from the other ones as it is written in greek. So I'm gonna switch over to that for now. You can always use the translate option but, as you probably know, it doesn't work well with poems. So thanks for visiting!

Καλώς ήρθατε λοιπόν (και στα ελληνικά).. Το ποίημα που ακολουθεί είναι μια συλλογή από στιχάκια με ενιαίο νόημα, γραμμένα όμως από διαφορετικά άτομα. Το αποτέλεσμα είναι όμορφο και δεν χάνει την συνοχή του. Ελπίζω να σας αρέσει.. (Οι συντελεστές στο τέλος).

«Εμμονή μου»

Όπου κοιτάξω είσαι εκεί
και στο νερό που πίνω
καθε γουλιά, κάθε πνοή
και δάκρυ που δε χύνω

Και όσο και αν θέλω δεν μπορώ
την όψη σου να σβήνω
η μόνη μου διαφυγή
τα μάτια μου να κλείνω

Με κοίταξες σαν έφυγες
και μένα αυτό με γιάνει
θα σαι για μένα ανατολή
που η δύση δε την φτάνει

Είπα να σβήσω τα παλιά
να βρώ αγάπη άλλη
μα η πυξίδα της καρδιάς
εσένα δείχνει πάλι

Δεν πρέπει πιά να νοσταλγώ
ούτε και να ελπίζω
πως στου μυαλού σου τα στενά
θα ξανατριγυρίζω

Πως να σου πώ πως σ’αγαπώ
που αρχίζω να δακρύζω
αφού ξέρω ότι θα πείς
να πάψω να ελπίζω

Πώς να σε βγάλω απ’ την καρδιά μου
που σ’ έχει αγαπήσει
και μόνο που θα της το πώ
μπορεί να σταματήσει

Μόνο εσένα αγαπώ,
κι απ' όλους τό χω κρύψει
ότι μακριά σου τώρα ζώ
ζωή γεμάτη θλίψη

Νά ταν τα όνειρα βροχή
και η αλήθεια ψέμα
και στη ζεστή σου αγκαλιά
να είχες τώρα εμένα

Όταν μαζί σου ήμουνα
δεν σταματούσα να πετώ
τώρα που με εγκατέλειψες
πέφτω μονάχος στο κενό

Λίγο πριν εξαφανιστείς
μού πες ξανά θα ανταμωθούμε
μα τώρα κι οι δυο σαν εχθροί
μονο ξεχωριστά θα ζούμε

Λένε πως η απόσταση χωρίζει καρδιές
Κάνει αγάπες να ανήκουν στο χθες
Μα παρόλο που τώρα είσαι μακριά μου
Σε εσένα θα ανήκει πάντα η καρδιά μου

Έχω καρδιά που δεν ξεχνά
θυμάται και πονάει
Σ' αγάπησε, την πρόδωσες
μα ακόμα σ' αγαπάει

Καθώς πυκνά τα σύννεφα αργά ξεκαθαρίζουν,
και το φεγγάρι σιωπηλά με λάμψη το στολίζουν
και πάνω που σε ξέχασα και είχα ηρεμήσει
η σκέψη σου ξαναγυρνά και δάκρυα με γεμίζει

Μία ευχή έχω βαθιά
κρυμμενη μέσα στην καρδιά
όλα να αλλάζαν ξαφνικά
και να σε έβλεπα ξανά

Να βάλω θέλω στην καρδιά
κάποιον που να σου μοιάζει
να πάψει η απουσία σου
τόσο να με τρομάζει

Χρόνια μονάχος προσπαθώ
απ' το μυαλό μου να σε βγάλω
μήπως μπορέσω τη ζωή
στα χέρια μου να ξαναπάρω

Η συγγραφή του έγινε με τον εξής τρόπο.. Κάθε ένας έγραφε από 4 στίχους. Ο επόμενος έπρεπε να συνεχίσει από εκεί που σταμάτησε ο προηγούμενος με άλλους 4 στίχους χωρίς όμως να αλλάξει το ύφος. Για την καλύτερη διαδοχή των στίχων έχω αλλάξει ελαφρώς τη σειρά τους. Ελπίζω να σας άρεσε.

Final Fantasy VI Opera House Song

Once again I accidentally found a nice love poem in a video game. This time it was in a very old game published in late 90s. Final Fantasy VI. Anyway, this is not a game review site, so let's stick to the point.. :-) The poem was actually an opera song ingame. It was in a funny and silly moment plus the game did not support any voices.. so it sounded really awkward. Furthermore, it might seem to be a little too much Cliché, to some, but it sounded nice to me.

Once again this poem is not mine it belongs to the SQUARE company that created the Final Fantasy Series. So here it goes..:

Final Fantasy VI Opera House Song

Oh my hero, so far away now.
Will I ever see your smile?
Love goes away, like night into day
It's just a fading dream..

I'm the darkness, you're the stars.
Our love is brighter than the sun.
For eternity, for me there can be,
only you, my chosen one..

Must I forget you? Our solemn promise?
Will autumn take the place of a spring?
What shall I do? I'm lost without you.
Speak to me once more!

We must part now
My life goes on
But my heart won't give you up

Here I walk away
let me hear you say
I meant so much to you

So gently
you touched my heart
I will be forever yours

Come what may
I won't age a day
Ill wait for you always!

Touchy isn't it??? :-)
Thanks for reading..

Always Remember Me

One of the previous days I accidentally happend to find out about a new dating video game called "Always Remember Me".. Sounded interesting so without a hesitation I started downloading the demo and a few hours later I started playing. The game was fun and emotional.. no need to mention more.. At some certain point the main character called "Amarantha" decides to write a poem, picks up a pen and starts writing. Then I was petrified by the poem she wrote.. It was so touchy, and well written, that I couldn't help but sit down and write down a copy of it so I can read it anytime. I don't know if you're gonna like it or not.. it is somehow what caused me to open this blog. This is my first one of the poetic moments I'm about to share here..:

Always Remember Me

Your gentle touch
The Warmth of your embrace
The passion of your kiss
Precious times
That felt ever so divine

I thought that they would never leave
Even though I can't reach you anymore
I can't open my eyes to find you there
I'll always have my memories

Though they are not as warm as the hands
That always made me feel so safe
I know they will never disappear
As you now have

My beloved,
My heart is forever yours
Even if you're lost
Beyond where my trembling voice
Can reach you

Even if your memories fade
Or disappear into the darkness
I'll never forget the precious times
When we faced the world together

My beloved,
For today, for tomorrow
For the days that may never return,
Never forget the words we once exchanged
"I love you..."

The writer of this poem is most likely Calso Riva and his team at WinterWolves games.
I hope you like it!

Some intro on Snaked Poetic Moments

Hello and welcome everyone, make yourselves at home!
This is Solid Snake.. as I am called online, and this is the latest blog I've created up to date.

Have you ever felt the need to have some space for your personal literature expressions.. some space that would be considered "your personal space"..? Let's just say that lately I feel like I have that need, an urge to write, collect, keep and share these expressions, and consider this blog is " my personal space". Thanks to Google we have blogger to cover our needs. :-)

Every now and then, when I feel down or not, I get some "spark" or a new idea to write something... It can be a song or a poem or just music. I've dedicated another blog for my musical expressions (http://lonesome-guitarist.blogspot.com), so this one will only house  my "poetic moments" as I like to call my personal poems. Of course all of them mean things for me, but they could also mean different things for each one you too.. That is the exciting thing about how literature works.. Each reader has his own aspect, point of view, based on his own personal experiences. Words talk differently to each one.. in a way that each one develops a special relationship with them. So feel free to "live the experience"!

As I've mentioned before, not all the poems that I'll post here are personal, meaning I intend to post some from other writers that really touched me, and caused me to develop a special relationship. For some moments they might have felt like they were really mine.. Those are the Poetic Moments I'm trying to cover here. Let's not forget that all rights about those ones remain to their respective owners.. and of course I'll mention them afterwards.

This is Solid Snake, and these are my personal Poetic Moments!
(that's why I call this blog: Snaked Poetic Moments)
Have fun and enjoy your trip here!
