Archive of Poetry from the House of the Rising Sun BBS (October 1, 1994)
****** Poetry Archive ******
The following is an archive of the poetry and commentary that was found on a BBS I ran during the mid & late 80's called "The House of the Rising Sun". My handle on this BBS was 'The Ninja Master'. Pretty silly, huh? :)
What you're seeing here consists of several messages all merged together to form one file. I hope you enjoy this little bit of modem history!

!SOME TIMES I WONDER SWEETLY LOST
!HOW MUCH THE LOSS OF THIS WOULD COST
!
!THEN I GRAB A NEWGROWN CAT
!PUT ON ANOTHER GROOVY HAT
!AND LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT A BAT
!AND DOWN THE BEACH I SWIFTLY RUN
!MY CAT IS BURNING IN THE SUN
!TRYING TO GAIN MY ATTENTION
!TO THE GLOVE FROM LAST NIGHT'S KITCHEN
!I TURN TO SMILE AND I GLO
!BUT THE HAT HAS GOT TO GO
!SO I THRROW THE HAT AWAY
!AND DOUSE MY CAT WITH BURNING HAY
!THINKING BACK TO YESTERDAY
!AND HOW THE RODENTS USED TO PLAY
!THEN I THINK ABOUT THE CAT
!THEN TUR~ TO LEAVE WITHOUT MY HAT
!I GO HOME WITHOUT MUCH HASTE
!SO AS NOT TO SHOW THE WASTE
!OF TIME WHICH I CAN'T USE TO PLAY
!SO ENDS ANOTHER COSMIC DAY
!IN THE LIFE OF ME AND KAY.

!Together and Each Other

!We talk for hours

!and then her friend leaves and she
!stops talking to you.
!Her friend comes back and everything
!is as if nothing ever went wrong.
!then something happens but it could
!be ironed out...no not so when you
!have morals and beliefs and the NEED
!the NEED not for something you're
!supposed to have but just the
!opposite. But then again those
!eggs in the frying pan commercials
!explain why somethings are the way
!they are...don't they People don7t
!pay money to run them on tv if they
!weren't. but some people find out
!too late. some people never do.
!
!does this sound like crazed babbling
!to you or can you decipher the code

!muahahaha. ha hm!

AMBERLE (UID# 40)

!And from the other side nothing seemed
!so wrong. She never pledged her love
!only her care. The more that time went
!by the deeper grave he dug for his own
!self. Convicted by his own morals not
!by someone else's.
!
!And choices are made but they can't be
!blamed on substances. Or anything like so.
!They can only be blamed upon the mind
!and the course of action. In some people's
!minds nothing is ever wrong in other's
!most everything is wrong. Most of us are
!somewhere in the middle.
!
!No it was not giberrish. It wasn't hard
!to read to between lines of hand-thrown
!guilt.

THE NINJA MASTER (UID# 1)

!There is rightand there is wrong
!and people who say 'what is right
!to me may not be right to you' are
!just fooling themselves so they can
!go through life without a guilty
!concious.
!
!IF they even have one.
!
!I am a christianand so therefore I
!do believe in the biblebut more
!importantly I believe in good. The
!idea that people are essentially
!good is not true. They are not. But
!you can become that wayif you
!really tryif you care enough about
!others to clean up your act.
!
!You just have to simply 'care' which
!is very hard for some people to do.
!
!Of course if you have no religious
!beliefsyou really have nothing to
!loose.

! Words of wisdom I would borrow
!If only the sentences I could follow

!Dragon Master
!
!I agree with the messages totally...

! I THINK!
!
^
AMBERLE (UID# 40)

!There is a spectacular difference in
!what one individual views as right and
!what another individual views as right.
!Many things that influnce who we are
!our culture our childhood where we
!were raised our religion etc reflect
!greatly upon our rights and wrongs.
!
!In W.Va. out in remote valleys men carry
!rifles around and simply shoot at someone
!that they don't like. That seems weird to
!me because first of all I never grew up
!around guns and secondly I would deal with
!it in a different manner.
!
!What is good to one may not be good to
!another. What I like you may hate. What
!I see as beautiful you may seee as ugly.
!
!Understand How can there be a right and
!wrong for the masses It is impossible.
!Everyone on the planet does not live by
!the same exact code of right and wrong and
!you are pretty sheltered if you think they
!do live that way.
!
!Amberle
^
THE NINJA MASTER (UID# 1)

!But there is a ultimate 'right' and
!'wrong'. People might say that some
!-thing is right when it isn't but
!in reality they know that it is
!the 'wrong' thing to doyet they do
!it anyway and make up excuses for
!their actions.
!
!I'm not shelterednor are you a
!'worldly' person either.
^
AMBERLE (UID# 40)

!If a person says that something they
!do is right when really they feel
!it is wrong then they would not do
!that certain thing. At least I wouldn't.
!I do what I FEEL is right. I don't
!do something or say something is I
!feel it is wrong.
!
!Just because it is not to your liking
!you feel it shouldn't be to my liking.
!Therefore I must be lying to myself.
!Nope kiddo I do what I feel is right.
!I believe in what I do.
!
!There is no ultimate RIGHT and WRONG.
!There is only what is and that is
!all there ever needs to be.
!
!We humankind judge for our ownselves
!what is right and wrong for our own
!individual selves. DON'T JUDGE RIGHT
!AND WRONG for another human being.
!Judge for your own self.

COMET (UID# 59)

!Amberle
!I do not intend this to be judgmental
!but I believe you are contradicting
!yourself. On one hand you state that
!there is no justification for killing
!for any reason whatsoever even if the
!person is the most vile person ever to
!walk the face of the earth. I
!perceive this as a statement that
!killing (in your estimation) is
!ultimately wrong.
!But on the other hand you
!state that there is no ultimate
!'right' and 'wrong'.
!Not critical just confused.

KING ROY (UID# 35)

!There is ultimate right and wrong
!and it's easy to know the difference
!between the two. If you follow the
!golden rule you'll always know. I'm
!talking about right and wrong when
!dealng with other people. I think if
!people would stop before they
!mis-treat another person and ask
!themselves would I like it if
!someone would do this to me we would
!have a much better world. That's how
!yo know right from wrong. Put
!yourself in the other person's shoes.

THE NINJA MASTER (UID# 1)

!EXACTLY! thank you King Roy!

!You don't give me love
! You give me Pale Shelter
! You don't give me love
! You give me cold hands...
!
!Satan's Lover
!-------------
!
!The bunch of flowers wrapped in
!Satan's disfigured hand.
!They remain black and cindered
!not like the colourful flowers of
!Earth.
!So Persphone points out.
!Her streaming hair lays upon Satan's
!red beating chest. Her pale lips
!mount his aching face.
!But Satan remains
!unsatisfied. For his lover is away.
!Up above.
!he wants no petal soft lips.
!No silk skin.
!No lace or frill in his love.
!No female nor friend.
!
!The bunch of flowers he holds
!are not for this torn maiden.
!They are for his lover. His beloved.
!And the flowers ache for God as
!Satan does.
!And his realm of fire is fed by his
!own desire for God.
!He cannot have so he shall make his
!lover pay
!Do not we mere mortals act in such a
!way
!
!Are we not made in our God's image
!Do not we act as did He
!He who cast Satan down to forever
!live apart from Him. Ah he was
!bored with his lover Satan.
!He found better things called
!humans to play with. Down Satan
!went. For love meant nothing.
!
!And then God wants us to LOVE
!To damn our lovers as did he
!To hurt To make what was once good
!EVIL
!And how dare HE
!
!The bunched flowers are no more...
!The men have fell. The god is no
!longer good. Satan has fell to
!obscurity. Thus the lovers
!remain ever apart.

MAX TAGG (UID# 19)

!Is that a general statement as to why

AMBERLE (UID# 40)

!Max-
! I do NOT believe in Satan or God but
!widely entertain the notion that it
!would be spectacularly ironic if they
!were lovers. In many Persian myths
!Satan is the fondest angel to God.
!But in the end God punishes him.
! I read about alot of religions but
!don't (or haven't as of yet) affix
!myself to any certain one. Some
!religions are beautiful. Others
!are disgusting. I read about them
!all.
! Funny that you should mention the
!Druids. I researched the Celtic
!Druids for a paper a couple years
!ago and learned some interesting
!stuff. Derived from their religion
!are such modern things as Halloween
!(All Saints' Day) and May Day.
! Also the many festivals that are
!written of in King Arthur legends.
!It is exceptionally neat to read
!about!
!
! Terrokian

! Thank you. I have modesty because
!I know the truth of what I write.
!It isn't special or talent. It
!just is.
!
! Thanks nonetheless.

DURENDAL (UID# 60)

! ...interesting thought...
!
! ...what if satan were a female(since
!nobody really knows anyway)and they
!were lovers that had a bit of a
!falling out and hell was where
!those who are sided totally towards
!femininity( spelling) go and heaven
!was for the the masculine sided...

MAX TAGG (UID# 19)

!Amberle
!I didn't think you were that religous
!but your poetry reminds me of the
!Druids even though I know very little
!about them. Me myself am drawn more
!towards the religions of the Orient
!espech Shinto and Buddhist. Hindu
!I reallly don't care for.
!Well anyway you are an excellant
!poet and I will finish that inter
!view pretty soon. I have to read
!your responses and get more ideas.
!I would normally be done by now but
!I've been busy.

!Three Fond Days
!---------------
!
!Entwined in such a tale of woe we lay
!soul to soul.
!And the merchant sire cries Fiend!
!The theif lies!
!And we simply recall Three Fond Days.
!Turmoil and trust.
!Lies and lust.
!Three fond days
!of love and love in between the
!modesty of who we really were.
!
!Day number one
!revealed nothing more than a goddess
!full of love.
!Fear not she cried to my mind I shall
!love you and your very kind.
!Fear not she said The life in you
!my child is never dead.
!Fear not she lied I wish to know
!what makes the hatred inside.
!
!Oh how they love three fond days
!How can they sway
!How can they pray
! Three fond days!
!
!Day number two.
!Mr. Loves who
!The thought of what is reality came
!to surface.
!A shimmering face.
!A touch in the right place
!And you shall find your love.
!Crime
!No words can describe the flame
!of time...
!How can you love the three fond days
!
!Day three
!No sanctuary.
!No hope for tomorrow.
!Only the words of approval I like you
!(oh and do you )
!Red satin.
!Black fiends.
!She lies and says It will be okay.
!How can you love three fond days
!How can you love three fond ways
!How can you love three strange days
!In such a way
!Tomorrow is never the factor in today.
!Three fond days.
! -Amberle

AMBERLE (UID# 40)

! Sorry that poem was a little too
!bizarre and strange. It is hard for
!me to write my thoughts as I see
!them in my mind's eye. I cannot
!describe with words that would make
!another understand what exactly
!each word or phrase means to me.
!In that sense yes DM things are
!too deep and very dark.
! It may be that my own inability to
!express that which I see and feel
!to others is what is preventing
!so many to NOT understand my poetry.
!But if the mess you can find a
!meaning of your own that is enough.
!Your meaning may not be mine but it
!is a meaning nonetheless.
! The last one was about 3 lost loves.
!Each one was the start of a new day.
!Each one held something new and shiny
!(like the sun) for me to hold onto.
!But at the third the beloved stopped.
!How could one love again when the only
!thing she heard was I like you.
!Thus the response Oh and do you
!
! We never cry at the end of a day
!only at the end of the beginning.
!The love never dies. The three
!still exist - merely in our minds.

!I like your poetry. Its dark bright
!sometimes sinister and definitely
!wierd. But hey who says all the
!twist and tangles in ones mind can be
!straighted so they won't be twisted
!and mangled even more in the eyes and
!mind of another Poetry isn't about
!understanding but rather more about
!feeling. If a poet can make you feel
!at least the same mood (s)he was in
!at the time then the poetry was good.
!Even if the reader didn't understand.
!Keep writing you poetry and posting it
!maybe someone else will get the feelin
!and be inspired.

! There are many interesting occult
