I know that I’ve been writing about my poetry book and raving about it (well, quite slowly I suppose), however, I write fiction primarily and poetry is a cathartic experience rather than my forte. So, I’ve uploaded a short story which I’ve written about say five to six years ago. I haven’t edited it much, so if there are any discrepancies let me know. Still, I hope that in reading this, you’ll be entertained because I write fantasy fiction and there aren’t many things that a good fantasy novel can’t banish away. The story below is a story of well, a drunken swordsman and a woman, there’s always a woman. (How I wanted to use that line in ages!) Anything more and the story would be spoiled. Well then go on click on the link
So get reading and please post your valuable comments below.
Blade of the drunken man
I’m proud to tell all of you who glanced at this site (yes, I realize that many would not have expected much from this almost anonymous blog) that my book is finally out.
Yeah, about the book, please go to amazon.com and search for “Dreaming at the Edge of reason”. i would be quite overjoyed if any of the readers goes to the pains to do because, well, it is my book. Also, for those of you who need to have a preview before buying the book, head over to google for a free preview of some of the poems and if any of the poems strikes you as something you all would like to read, please do try to obtain the whole book.
For those who want more information, I have nothing else to say but I would like it if everyone who sees this post thinks enough to simply click and find out if they like my work.
Wishing that you’d all like to read my work
The publishing company is still getting the final touches to the poetry book but I thought that since i did promise a little preview of my work I’ll give one of poems here. Other than that thanks for the likes. I had a sinking feeling that no one was going to see my blog. Any ways, here’s the poem. By the way if you guys have any comments, I’m fine with it but please do remember I didn’t study creative writing or poetry writing from anywhere. So it won’t be that polished, erm what I guess I’m trying to say is go easy on me please. (nervous laughter)
Am I born just to die?
Then dance with a sigh.
Please praise me with cheer,
The fox goes down a path winding.
A dash of blood is colour,
Travels I have done,
Songs I have sung,
Tales I have lived,
The blades vanish with a sigh.
Danced I have amidst the wild,
With none except lone trees and,
Willowy sage flowers.
Red is the brilliance of light,
Crimson is my cloth,
Made from the lives of the lost.
Are we born just to die?
No matter, I dance a dance,
Of swirling blades of crimson,
With soft sighs and a wan smile,
I go greet my destiny
So, for those who are still interested or rather who are beginning to show interest in my collection of poetry( soon to come), the poems really don’t have anything difficult or hidden meanings in their lines. I mean those poems to be quite simply poems and nothing more. What meanings the readers have are their own. So anyways, if I get enough requests (like maybe 2) I will put in one of my poems for you guys to see. Hope some one will like it.
My name is Vishnu Aiyappan and I am an aspiring novelist/poet. My first publication will be out soon. The book is called ‘Dreaming at the edge of reason’ and it is a collection of poetry that I wrote over four long, hard years. hard because I had to juggle writing as a seriously time consuming hobby and studying to get my engineering degree. well, At least I managed to get something done quick. So I hope that most of you guys out there will see this post and think it might be worth your while to pick it up some time. By the way, I’ll be posting when the book finally launches on this site soon
