Random Thoughts: What if chapter titles were poems?

Strange things happen when I stay up late. I get "ideas." Some times those ideas are brilliant, some times they teeter on the edge of insanity. It's a crap shoot really, because you don't know which will occur.

So as I was reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I noticed the titles of the chapters. Some of them were really unusual. So I thought to myself, "These are rather poetic." That thought turned into, what if they were a poem?

So I wrote them all out and added a few connecting words so it would flow a little more smoothly. If I had more time, I'm sure I could rearrange and make something really amazing, but I'm lazy and out of coffee. So, with the titles in their respective orders, here is what I came up with:



Impossible to scare.
An unveiling of sorts:
a cranny, poison kitchen.
Elsewhere.
The Angel of Extinction;
with Black handprints
The Devil’s doorways
are hither-and-thither girl.
Please,
be something else entirely!
The graverobber
or a deadly bird of the soul.
The other door is a world apart
but battle not with monsters!
Not who, but WHAT--
True story!
Hope makes its own magic
like a piece of empty candy;
with infinite patience
Flying is easy but never peace.
 


A soft wrongness of
Not prey, but power
and attitude of prayer.
Starlight to the sun?
You are right.
Both place and person.
Preposterous?
What’s a day,
but the tongue of angels
To do else than kill?
A dream-lost?
Ungodly!
Blood will out, Almost like magic:
Ache and salt and allness.
Snap!
Whole again.
Sudden Evanescence
of pure Teeth
and sugared, The serpentine Madness.
Love is an element
Meant for children of regret…
 
 
Please excuse the weird formatting. Blogger does not always cooperate.
