As the world keeps turning as it has before,
Completely unaware of what lies at the sea floor,
There in the darkness where the old ones sleep,
Lies sunken city of those that dwell in the deep,
This drowned city has no life by any means,
But in his house Great Cthulhu dreams.

Cthulhu fhtagn,
Cthulhu fhtagn,

That dark city of the depths sleeps still,
Against the waves held together by his will,
The cyclopean buildings contain such wonder,
Locked away waiting until mankind’s blunder,
As he sleeps Cthulhu gathers his might,
Waiting for the time when the stars are right,

Cthulhu fhtagn,
Cthulhu fhtagn,

On the surface his followers grow in mass,
Grouped together for the time when strange aeons pass,
One by one they sacrifice in his name,
After they have given they will never be the same,
Dancing in ritual throughout the night,
In the swamps and the seas of the world out of sight,

Cthulhu fhtagn,
Cthulhu fhtagn,

When the stars are right and the sleepers awake,
Upon the souls of man their thirst they shall slake,
When that time comes R’lyeh shall rise from the sea,
Then once and for all Cthulhu shall be free,
Then upon the world of man he shall stalk,
Leaving death and madness where he shall walk,

Cthulhu fhtagn,
Cthulhu fhtagn,

Until that day he waits and visits man in its sleep,
Showing them visions of that forsaken city of the deep,
Watching over the world with an all seeing eye,
Still sleeping until the time when even death may die,
Enviously staring upon the world of men,
Hearing the chant as it starts over again,

Cthulhu fhtagn,
Cthulhu fhtagn.
Here is my secound Lovecraft poem and as I said would in my prievious poem I have based it on a more widely known part of the Cthulhu Mythos, Cthulhu himself.

I decided to actual try and make a poem that rhymes, about how good it is I'm not really sure myself but hopefuly you the viewing public will give it a good thumbs up.

thank you very much

This is an excellant poem. I like the constant repetition of Cthulhu Ftaghn; really binds the poem together.

It's been a while since I'd mentioned I'd be giving your writing a read, and so, I thought to take the time now

I quite enjoyed this poem, especially the lines 'But in his house Great Cthulhu dreams' and 'Against the waves held together by his will.' The former conjured up a wonderful image of the abhorrent and unnameable Cthulhu resting deep within the ocean, while the later seemed so well to describe the awesome and terrible majesty of the Great One. Well done.

I am interested in joining but there is one slight problem.
upon reading your latest journal entry I would have problems posting my work mainly because I cannot post any drawn art all because first of all I'm terrible at drawing thats why I have nothing but literature and secoundly even if I could produce any drawn deviations I have no scanner so I can't get them online.

there is my only real problem unless you are will to make an exception in my case

Hi! The thing is, you don't have to use your own art. The idea is to ask another artist permission to use a piece of theirs, and as long as permission and full credit is given, that's fine. You don't have to use a preview at all, but we're encouraging people to.

And anyone can be a member! All you have to do is note us and put the account on watch. :)
