  • Fantasy (v2!)

    There’s a place you’ve always dreamed of,    where your heart’s always at ease, Ring your fingers, crown your forehead,        ‘cause in here you’re royalty, Turn around, you’ll see your castle gaze         from spires that reach past the trees, Beyond a rainbow grew around it,                 open up the skies and your mind will […]

  • Fantasy

    Please not that due to the extremely long lines and the use of caesura, if you’re on mobile it would be best to rotate sideways. I There’s a place you’ve always dreamed of     where the heart’s always at ease, Ring your fingers, crown your forehead        cause, in here you’re royalty, Turn around, you’ll see your […]

  • Forgotten Until Further Notice.

    Fathoms 1/5 Au.3.2018 (Ma.20.2019) I’ll be a while Because I need to see the sun set What will we do? Who am I to ask such a question? Will we stay two And you know how I feel about you You don’t know all the things I could do I could save me from the […]

  • Wither’s Shine

    Last of the Last Act: 4 – Wither’s Shine Let me repeat What I said To You In my head. Only yesterday, you told me you were gone All these normal people, will I find another one? These days I am a failure, But I’m your protector. You are? I had danced alone for so long, […]

  • Impressions, Fathoms and Whatnots.

    Some short poetry (and whatnot) mostly culled from my recent twitter: @DaniellTriumph :3 1 Alexandre on the Harpsichord. Playing a few things… 1, 2. 2a They marry young and you, look at them And their joy and Judge them Through resentful eyes. (3)2b Then you realize, The music is all tragedies, It’s time to stop drag […]

  • Reflect Deflex

    Honestly, I have no idea what this is about. It’s vaguely political for sure. Maybe you can have a go at it, as Northrop Frye says: The poet is not the ultimate judge of his art. (Though he can put on the “critic hat” so to speak, and become one of the many critics for […]

  • The Last of the First Act

    P.S.: This was written around a month ago, and is thus no longer reality, but fiction. “My life ended And I missed it.” – dan… The cause of my affliction Can never be resolved A case for self infliction Whose sin can’t be dissolved Your body’s empty now, As I hold you—now gone I miss […]

  • Dear Diary, a playlist.

    Dear Diary, This is who I am right now. Thanks for listening, Daniel Triumph. <https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-kCYZH3wujZQeIOsik45NBtROL6DY3bd>

  • Passive Regressions

    An anthology of very short poems I think would be unfair to publish on their own. Most are for…someone. 1 I’m just a lie, she’s just a fake I’m just alive, she’s just a lake I’m just alive, she’s just a lake. And my hand dissolves from Murexa In the lakes. I thought it was […]

  • “Daaaan”’s Epic list of Albums

    These are my favourite albums, off the top of my head. I listen to a small list of great bands and that’s it. Obviously, this list was made for a girl. Best Crucible (Halford) [a favourite] Falling Up (Falling Up) Youthanasia (Megadeth) [thinking of you] Screaming for Vengeance (Judas Priest) Super Collider (Megadeth) [The haters […]

  • The First of Many

    After my previous “avant-garde” poetic endeavour, I figured I’d share another one. This is, of course, dedicated to the person I wrote it for. *** “I feel it only necessary to preface a work such as this with a quote.” – [Name Removed] [Waves] [Close our eyes and count slow,] (Falling Up) (Falling Up) [In […]

  • What were Judas Priest’s “Best Years”?

    I’m kind of in a bad way right now, and it’s exam season. Despite this, I’m going to try to keep the ball rolling. Here’s a short piece on the different eras of one of my favourite bands, Judas Priest. I think Judas Priest’s biggest time in the spotlight (definitely their biggest time for sales) […]

  • Hours


    You can tell from the first two seconds of Hours that it isn’t going to be like any other rock album. Some songs don’t even have guitars in them, but still manage to sound like rock, for example my favourite track Aeva and the Waving World which inspired a short story of mine.

  • Grasp of the Undying, by Pentakill

    Grasp of the Undying, by Pentakill

    This my a review of the new Pentakill album. I’d consider it a “quick review.” Overview I might be impressed with this album if I hadn’t already been a metal head for three years. On the surface it sounds like Iron Maiden with the singer of Avantasia, all wrapped up in prog. I can understand […]

  • On Music: Should you Rock and Write?

    No. Thanks for reading, Daniel Triumph. Facebook, Twitter, DeviantArt, Instagram. Okay, but why not? Alright, it’s a fact that music is a distraction. Especially anything with vocals, or things that sound like voices such as guitars. The truth is that our brains will passively focus on the music and some of our cognitive abilities will be […]
