I can see right through your tactics
I guess to you this is just practice
A pitied pawn who’s told the fact is
He’s used by a benevolent fascist

Take no aim but take all actions
Cutting corners and claiming factions
A piece of us fell apart
From love to loss to death to ashes

Hold me – No hope here
Knowing secrets you wish to share
You speak in chords and mumbled taunts
Perfect girl as my confidant

Hold me –Truth be clear
You’re going forward to nowhere
You weaken lords with humble wants
And starve them ‘til their faces gaunt

           You and I are just bad creatures
           On a journey for retribution
           Misguided by our slighted hearts
           Fueling our own alienation

Broken full moons and lace pieces
Spoken hush notes hides in matrices
Graphite confessions in folding creases
Half-righteous lesson mocked by Jesus

Falling for the vice to please us
Calling for the night to tease us
Geas to you until this ceases
Mesh in time until bliss eases

Hold me – Are we alone
Knowing Treason’s upon the throne
I speak in winds and doubletalk
Perfect to be your confidant

Hold me – No where to go
Search for Reason’s burning home
I weaken kings with troubled clocks
And watch them as their faces rot

           You and I are just bad creatures
           On a journey for retribution
           Misguided by our slighted hearts
           Fueling our own alienation
Bad Creatures
After a hiatus-and-a-half... here's a poem. 
Stay classy, devartians.

1,001 American Nights by Regal-Pinion
1,001 American Nights
This is my attempt at practicing writing for a series, American Double-Blind. A dark comedy, in which each episode is a modern retelling of an old tale. It focuses on five friends whom find themselves in the focus of the events going on around them. 

This is loosely based on the story behind Arabian Nights, in which the hero, Scheherazade, the inventor of the "To Be Continued," stalls for a few days plus/minus a few years by telling her would be murderer a series of stories. If you don't know what I'm talking about, google it. I'm sure the information you find about that character is more helpful than whatever the hell is in this description. 

This is my first draft. But I don't plan on making this an episode any time soon.

Neverwhen Complex by Regal-Pinion
Neverwhen Complex
What starts off as a simple play quickly spirals into chaos. 
So far this is the darkest comedy I have written. 
Wish me luck at the strike of a match.

Friends of mine and I have been working on this concept wit the idea of a production company by writers for writers. Mainly in response to the writer's market. 
We call ourselves Corruption Subtext. 
And this is why I've been on and off of Deviant art lately. 
For now we are saving money and still planning, but at the same time we are also writing scripts and seeing who is interested. If you wish to know more just note me and I can send you my email. 
Thank you all for the support.

You’ve heard it spoken in hush. Whispered in producers’ offices. And screamed in bed by writer’s who really don’t like repeating the stories outside the comforts of the sheets: Tickle me there! that and What in the hell is Surreality? And what kind of hypothetical context is this?
Surreality is an anthology series. The catch is every writer part of Corruption Subtext is to create a minimum of two episodes. The first two scripts may be saved for a later date (because budgeting sucks). Essentially writing the two scripts is a literal Write of Passage (note to self: suicide is illegal no matter how bad the pun). Here’s the prompts:

PROMPT ONE:

Use the picture above as inspiration to write a script (10 – 30 pages). Assume it’s being recorded on a tight budget.

PROMPT TWO:
What ever you want. Yes, whatever you want.
The humor of this is some people try to challenge that with something like “CAN I WRITE A SERBIAN PORN/SNUFF/SNUFF-PORN/ROM-COM SCRIPT?” And to that the answer is:
I mean sure, yeah. If you want to. Lars Von [mumbles] probably already wrote it though.
Assume that the script you’re writing is for you. The only restriction is the page length: 10 -30 pages. Sadly it may not be recorded, but it’s a always great to see what people do when being left to their own devices.



After that, if you wish to write some episodes after doing the prompts feel free.


With bad influence,
Michael “Regal Pinion” William Barker

Surreality - (an inverse of a television pitch)
Some friends of mine and I have been working together on this production crew idea that is essentially by writers for writers. 
The name of it is Corruption Subtext, because I named it and I'm freaking weird. 

The difference though Surreality is sort of an initiation. "Want to join? Write a script." 

To be honest this was my idea, because I'm a sadistic cretin who likes to watch people play with matches and other terrible metaphors.

I'm not sure where the preview photo came from... 
but the prompt, I know for a fact, is from Old factory Stock 088 and I hope they know that this photo will inspire lots of awesomeness (and for that I am thankful, :iconmalleni-stock: ).

Regal Pinion was going to write this bio in third person, until I said "to hell with it" and decided this would suit better.

I tend to write short stories, but this profile is dedicated to the hip hop I write under the stage name... well... Regal Pinion.

So feel free to browse through or just look at the confused picture of me, above.

No worries!
Your profile said the best way to thank you was to give llamas, and my thought was, "That's actually a reasonable request." :nod:

Thank you for reading then! So many people just comment anyways, it's not that I have a problem with that. It's just that my profile page was getting spammed with so many people saying "thanks".
