Chapter 1, Ars Amatoria

In the beginning, there was a humble poet named Steph. The mind of this individual twisted and turned, seeking inspiration, comradeship, and enlightenment. One day, a spark set ablaze a fire that would reshape, and renew the conception of poetry in the young, immature enviornment. Steph invisioned a guild of writers, a haven for any man or women who loved to feel the pen between their fingers, loved to express themselves through ink and paper, and loved to shower the world in the oldest form of entertainment. From this idea, Ars Amatoria, the first writer's guild on Naruto-Boards was born.

Chapter 2, Rebirth

Inactivity plagued Ars Amatoria, and its supports began to crumble. The leaders of the so-called "writer's heaven" began to disappear, and many members followed suit. Under some old leadership, and some new leadership, Ars Amatoria was reborn. The Poem of the Week, the Poetournament, and countless writing topics began to hit Naruto-Boards, and eventually even Soul-Boards. The war; however, would not be won yet.

Chapter 3, Ato Amatoria

The guild was dead. For over a year, Ars Amatoria sat inactive with its thread unused. Then, something happened. The few past-members that remained, along with a couple that came back from the dead, began to work towards a single goal. The same goal Steph had had so many years ago, they would create a new place for writers to find both solitude, and support. With the creation of this very topic, Ato Amatoria is born, and will show all it can The Art of Love.

There is no end.

This is a section reserved for works of Ars Amatoria members of the past, and current Ato Amatoria members. Of course, this section in no way reflects upon all the poetry and writing styles of Ato Amatoria (or Ars Amatoria of the past), and so, to find all there is to offer, one must read the writing section. This section will be added to, taken away from, and edited to our every whim.


Dream Sear by DRN_Shikamaru/Erebus
(This is the first draft of a novel written by one of our former leaders)



POTW #8 Entry by Lazy_Genius_13

A crescent peaks o'er smokey mountain mist
It seems forever ago in a dream, we shared our first kiss
In the chilled oceans spray, under waning moons light
You faded forever away, into the darkness, out of sight

I heard whispers so gently, floating on the waves
As they washed the sober from me, salt staining my name
Freeing my senses of me, sending me back in time
To what I cherished so deeply, someone to call mine

Your memories rose, disturbing tranquil water 'gain
So I returned home to family, to remember the love of kin

I wrapped myself tightly, in an abodes warm embrace
And grew once more in eternity, doning a new face
One that spoke of tragedy, yet wisdom scarred into place
One that spoke of character,
And one that has known disgrace

I heard whispers so gently, floating on the waves
As they returned my sobriety, returned me to my name
Regathering my sense, regaining former time
To find a new cherished clarity, a life once again mine

Your memories sink beneath tranquil water
No longer shall I remain bothered, for
A crescent peaks o'er smokey mountain mist
It's been forever since we shared a kiss
But no longer do your lips touch mine
I've found another to cherish this time
Under waxing moonlight, in gentle embrace
A gentle smile graces this face



This Love by Shino*Girl/Ari

The frail thread of light
That travels through the night
What if it were to break?
What could I do whose hand would I reach for?
You try so dearly to tempt fate
To bend to your desire
But what makes you think
That you can break a bond
That seemingly stretches into an eternity?
Why do you try to blind me with lies?
Is it true, can it be, you strive relentlessly
To break an unbreakable bond?
No one can banish these passionate feelings
For he's my one and only love
So you may continue to try and break apart my heart
For this love stretches far beyond time
And will never cease because of the greed
That obviously plagues your heart.
I will never cease to protect him, to protect this
Because he's the only one I'll always need and want.



Unforgettable by KakashiRinObito

Remind me again how:
time came to pass fast that,
people all grew up,
forgetting who's ass cast em,
showed em the way,
to eventually sway,
the process of thinking that caused em to stay,
say hey to masses and wave your arms high,
lean back on your throne and let out a cry,
"why oh why", you moan with a sigh,
"am I the only one who don't wanna die?",
"am I so alone, thoughful and true?",
failing to realize your one makes two,
god forbid look back in past-even you,
should see what came before this time we call new,
in a time when kings sat on your thrown,
yes a time that the best of us should've known,
where past out-castes planted the seed grown,
into our minds now so carefully sewn,
so when they rose up, they began to inspire,
so I could rise up, and you even higher,
ending this cold world, bound in desire,
putting a stop to, a perpetual fire,
that burns at our hope,
and takes our change,
not a single dollar left,
but it aint that strange,
greed consumed us all,
sending our past to hell,
but the bell tolls for me,
done trying to sell,
truth for truth's sake,
and pulling you up,
we're gonna retake,
what spilled from our cup,
like heroes we knew,
got us feeling star struck,
it's just too damn bad,
I forget his name, fuck



Forethought, Thought, Afterthought, and Lost Though by hamjammer
(A series of four poems written as a timeline of events, a happy tragedy until the end.)

If I do it, will She care?
If I do it, will I die?
If I do it, will things change?
If I do it, will He win?
If I do it, will I cry?
If I do it, will I solve my problems?
If I do it, will Jesus smile?
If I do it, will She smile?
If I do it, will I fail?
If I fail, will I be able to let go?

---

Save me from a spell.
Drag me out from here.
You'll be happy.
Come with me?
Why I don't know what to think.
Don't look back.
Where are you leaving to?
Heat burns you know?
Don't walk into the flame.
Its not right.
He'll torture you.
In Him is the devil.
Fine then, walk away.
Walk to death with a smile.

---

As the world keeps turning,
My mind stands still.
Scars cut once more,
Century long wounds.
Repeat.
As She pulled out the knife,
She left her strings.
Mindless once more,
I can't stop
Repeat the-
I'll lay there dead.
Pondering why He came back
Death doesn't touch the devil
Surely He won
Repeat the Agony-
She didn't smile, instead she cried.
But my tears real, Hers mocking
Jesus cried, but out of laughter
My life to the Gods, a joke.
Repeat the Agony of-
Only things changed, is my stability
I can never win.
I lost, failure, another mark on the wall.
With the strings shes pullin, I can't let go
Repeat the Agony of Love

---

I look back and laugh,
The wounds weren't so great.
I ran, I cried from what I feared.
I never enjoyed feeling alone.
But neither did she.
And with him, she was what I feared.
Finally, though, the sun came out,
The mute man spoke,
But more importantly, the blind girl saw.
And when those eyes opened.
She saw me, and I saw her eyes.
Never have I seen more beauty.
In the end, is this a happy tale?
More like a happy tragedy.



Don't Wanna Say Goodbye by deidarauchiha

I remember the day we became friends,
I remember how much you made me smile,
I remember how much you made me laugh.

I remember how mad you used to make me,
I remember how sincere your apologies were,
I remember when you said you were leaving.

I cried right there,
Because I don't wanna say goodbye.

But I have to let you go before you leave,
I have to stop thinking you'll stay for me,
I have to try to let you go,
But I don't think I can,
Because I don't wanna say goodbye.

There's so much I still have to say,
There's so much we didn't do,
There's so much I regret,
There's so much I want to relive just one more time.

But there's one thing I know for sure,
One thing I can't deny,
I don't wanna say goodbye.



A Special He by hyuugaitachi007

Born on a shadowy dusk,
On the seventh of the months,
In the Pearl of the Orient,
Or the country called the Philippines.

When the sands of time poured,
The infant became a boy,
The child who wore glasses
Since his seventh year of birth.

After fourteen years,
He was still short;
He was scared of his height,
Wondered if he will grow taller.

He asks himself a lot.
He wants to be taller.
He grew a little;
Yet still not enough.

Being fond of meeting acquaintances,
He soon had friends.
He also loved literature,
Either writing or reading.

He works as hard as a farmer,
But sometimes he crams.
Sometimes he enjoys sarcasm,
And from time to time, he acts as pessimist.

He loves being with people he loves,
Either family or friends.
The guy likes to flirt;
Sometimes for fun, and sometimes for something else.

He thinks of himself as the color red.
He can easily adapt to any situation,
Like red matches any other color.
Similar to red, his moods has many shades.

When this teen closes his eyes,
He sees himself in a courtroom.
Not as the one who?s pleading guilty,
But the man who fights for justice that?s due.

Another gaze into the future is himself,
Sitting on a desk with a fountain pen.
Beside him a computer and paper.
He grew to be a dazzling writer.

His memories, his love,
His faith, his determination
Is what drives him to walk,
To walk the road of life.

Who is this he?
He is a special he.
'Tis I, Raymond.
That's who



Endgame by RejecteDeiety

Suffering helps me feel
Like reality is real
I feel like I'm hellbound
Every time I get knocked down
Get up to push through my pain
Your glare shoots down, like rain
All my struggling's in vein
Now I feel my blood pour
Dying to feel untamed
My heartaches for the endgame



The Journey by Engart

I drifted...
The endless flow of the wind.
A leaf, lifted and carried onward.

Will it end?
This hopeless dance upon strings.
The tune harsh and unyielding.

The Gods play their wicked games.
Humanity unceasing in its cruelty.

And so I drift..
My mind awash with blurred images.
Forming into hopes, falling into despair.

It never ends..
Curling in upon myself like a withered leaf.
Brittle as the glaring sun burns me dry.

All it would have taken was one word,



Regret by Elpizo

I went through the forbidden door
And couldn't wait till I got more
My life flashed through my eyes
Then I knew I would die

My heart tells me death is upon me
But my mind won't let me see
Where the light is to escape
Destiny says that its too late.

My curosity was the death of me
My heart wants me to flee
In the midst of my regret
I must go and pay my debt

Darkness consumes me so I won't return
Solitude will try to help me learn
Of the life I destroyed
The light that I avoid

I call through the black
Please come and take me back
I can't live without light
I must conquer this night

Regret destroyed my call
Now all I do is fall
Trying to find the way
To reach the light of day

Its like a voice is demanding
And keeping me from standing
Making me listen to every word
Making sure I do as heard

If I listened to me
I would be able to see
That that voice is pain
And it must be slain

So now that you see what I've done
Please let me start to run
From this regret hidden inside
To destroy my dark mind



Yume (Dream) by teiji_uchiha

I wish to sleep, and forever to slumber
for there in my slumber, I dream
and in dreams I can be free
to forever live in bliss
I wish to dream
for whenever I dream
I escape the madness that
eternally plague this doomed world
there I can hide under the cloak of pretense
that pain and sorrow had never existed
there I can defy physical boundaries
there I can cross thresholds
and reach places where
the world of waking cannot
To dream is to fly across oceans
with wings of imagination and hope
and soar above the heavens where I can
search for one whom I have always
longed to hold in my arms
so I can fly to him
and finally believe that
happiness is also meant for me
there I can feel the love he concealed
there I can read his buried thoughts
that I may know just what to do
to offer him the gift of bliss
so I wish to slumber deep
so that I may dream
of being with him



Mental Revolution by nara_mono

..::Mental Revolution::..
Intense are the eerie cries
Of those who ran the game
Eradicating their hypocritical lies
No longer can it be the same
As a time you labeled calm
In a world filled with pain
So I strike with a sweaty palm
those whom I found insane
Attempting to trap the human mind
As we escape your fascist illusion
Leaving you and the past behind
This is our Mental Revolution!



Roses are Red by stefan-vn

Roses are Red
Violets are blue
Your boobs make me wet
I wanna fuck you
