A Poem by KeeD

The transformation of a high school girl into a monster. Popularity, being skinny, spreading rumors and alienating old friends for fake new ones. The two ideas just made sense to fit in a poem.

the creator of rumors 
the mother of gossip
consumed by chaos

hours and hours of conversations
between the mirror and self
reanimate me into vanity 

striving to be the best
more often at my own risk
in reach of immortality  

root of my existence 
fuel my hunger
to be the biggest b***h 

I am a Lich

Author's Note

In modern fantasy fiction, a lich is a type of undead creature. Often such a creature is the result of a transformation, as a powerful magician or king striving for eternal life uses spells or rituals to bind his intellect to his animated corpse and thereby achieve a form of immortality. Liches are depicted as being clearly cadaverous, their bodies desiccated or even completely skeletal. Liches are often depicted as holding power over hordes of lesser undead creatures, using them as soldiers and servants.

Great write. I really do enjoy your dark persona and how it's reflexed in your poems.

At first I thought that this is going to be about the hero Keltuzad the Lich King. But whatever. Very entertaining.

Oh I write those kinda pieces for myself :P fantasy and lore are my favorite kind of writes.
Very original concept, not to mention profound write, amazing use of language. Witty acrostic, the last line, cuts you deep. Amazing write, Keegan! Thanks for sharing not only this poem but that tid-bit of information regarding "Lich" -- will definitely (try) to store that info. in my hat... pen on! - xoxo:)

This is very clever and insightful Kee, I do love the word Lich, for it is a derivation of the Dutch word corpse / "lijk" I found this a good acrostic one, with real intense thoughts woven through it. It's beautiful to learn everytime I watch your page, new things. I could not imagine myself as a Lich, at least not to be a Lich, with evil intentions or authoritarian behaviour, so this was a pretty good experiment, to replace yourself into a mind like that. Tell me, is there an anime game of it? lol :) Great work here my friend.

Every line is poweful. Like a giant bubble bursting just above your head.
Competition and the struggle to be perfect has taken a turn for the worst. It is ruining lives and potentially wonderful personalities, in both boys and girls.
Loved the comparison with Lich. Very unique:-):-):-D.

very creepy and intense...this reminds me much of "Mean Girls"

and i always wonder what goes on inside the head of these there ever really happiness and contentment...or are they always striving for what they don't have and what they aren't---and will never be...miserable people have only one way of feeling better...

antagonizing and belittling others...

really insightful work here, keegan...

Hi I'm Keegan, most of you talented people on here know me as Kee. I'm 28 and work as a journalist. I write to release bottled feelings, so although it might not be very good, it is me. Thank you for .. more..
