Wilderness Volume I - The Lost Writings of Jim Morrison For Pamela Susan I think I was once I think we were Your milk is my wine My silk is your shine MOSAIC. Apr 20, While there has been a wealth of literature on Jim Morrison, the lead .. In “ Power,” a poem in Wilderness: The Lost Writings of Jim Morrison. Wilderness: The Lost Writings of Jim Morrison is a book of poems by Jim Morrison. Jim Morrison, lead singer and lyricist for The Doors, wrote poetry during his.
If my poetry aims to achieve anything, It's to deliver people from the limited ways in which they see and feel. The wilderness between. Go round the march. Killer storm.
Fool's gold. God in a heaven. Where is she? Have you seen her? Has anyone seen this girl? In this womb or tomb, we're free of the swarming streets.
Tales of Kings, gods, warriors and lovers dangled like jewels for your careless pleasure I'm Me! My meat is real. I'm human But I'm not an ordinary man No No No What are you doing here? What do you want? Is it music? We can play music. But you want more. Am I right? Of course I am.
I know what you want. Things not exactly what they seem. I lead you this way, he pulls that way. I'm not singing to an imaginary girl. I'm talking to you, my self. Let's recreate the world. The palace of conception is burning. See it burn. Bask in the warm hot coals. You're too young to be old You don't need to be told You want to see things as they are. You know exactly what I do Everything I am a guide to the Labyrinth Monarch of the protean towers on this cool stone patio above the iron mist sunk in its own waste breathing its own breath Power I can make the earth stop in it's tracks.
I made the blue cars go away. I can make myself invisible or small. I can change the course of nature. I can place myself anywhere in space or time.
I can summon the dead. I can I am People need Connections Writers, heroes, stars, leaders To give life form. A child's sand boat facing the sun. Plastic soldiers in the miniature dirt war. Sweat was in the air. The channel beamed, token of power.
Incense brewed darkly. Who could tell then that here it would end? This was the Crossroads. Mercury strained. I couldn't get out of my seat. Help, we'll be late for class. A girl stripped naked on the base of the flagpole. Blankets were needed. Ropes fluttered. Ah sweet music.
Wild sounds in the night Angel siren voices. The baying of great hounds. Favorite corners. Cheerleaders raped in summer buildings.
Those lean sweet desperate hours. Time searched the hallways for a mind. Hands kept time. The climate altered like a visible dance.
Night-time women. They know the secret of mind-change reality. A symmetrical angel. The Sun. They rule dawn's Kingdom. I slept on the roof. I met the Spirit of Music. Running, I saw a Satan or Satyr, moving beside me, a fleshy shadow of my secret mind. Running, Knowing. I feel their vibes thru my skin, the hair on my neck -it rises. You know our price.
It never changes. But it is getting late. To achieve respite. Would you mock yourself? This guy told me. My Wild Love! It's no fun To feel like a fool - when your baby's gone. A new ax to my head: Possession. I create my own sword of Damascus.
Hanging from windows as if to say: I'm bold - do you love me?
Just for tonight. A One Night Stand. A cat yowls. Love for the fat girl. When will SHE get here? Of course I am. I know what you want. Things not exactly what they seem. I lead you this way, he pulls that way. I'm not singing to an imaginary girl. I'm talking to you, my self. Let's recreate the world. The palace of conception is burning. See it burn. Bask in the warm hot coals.
You're too young to be old You don't need to be told You want to see things as they are. Now, not so much. Feb 28, Joseph rated it really liked it Shelves: People need connectors Writers, heroes, stars, leaders To give life form. I have been a Doors fan since the late s when rock music first started to speak to me as more than just music. The Doors were an influence not only on me but people I soon came to listen too, like Patti Smith.
Even now, at work and being the old guy in the shop, its good to hear Millennials putting The Doors on the shop stereo. There is little doubt that Ray Manzarek was a musical genius, but he could not hold the band People need connectors Writers, heroes, stars, leaders To give life form.
There is little doubt that Ray Manzarek was a musical genius, but he could not hold the band together after Morrison's passing. Whether you believe Morrison was a poet or simply someone clever with words, he was much more than the average front man for a band.
I enjoyed the words and the writing. Wilderness provides some insight into the creation of the band's lyrics. Common themes throughout the collection are the ideas of freedom, the infinite, shamanism, the color green.
There are several poems titled LAmericia. The combination of Los Angeles and America. The star of what is or was America to Morrison. Reading the lines that contain lyrics from the Soft Parade puts the music into the readers head gives the poem an extra layer rhythm. The inclusion of hand written notes a welcome addition to the writing. A good collection for Doors fans. Jan 03, Jen rated it really liked it.
Jim Morrison changed my life in college. Ironically, he was dead at the time, but it's true. I love so many of the poems in this volume but one stands out right now, after I've experienced fall and am experiencing winter for the first time in years: Dec 17, Mikimbizii rated it it was amazing. While flipping though the pages of Wilderness at a local book store, I found these lines: I am struck by the feather of your soft reply. The sound of glass speaks quick, disdain and conceals what your eyes fight to explain.
Oct 04, J. I guess I'm a biased reviewer here. I am a passionate Doors fan. If you're a casual Doors listener, you'll find Morrison's writing rough sledding. But if you're like me, you'll love this collection of previously unpublished poems and ephemera.
Perhaps Jim wasn't the most polished poet in the world. His work often smacks of the high school English star drunk on words. But he's got some wonderful imagery in here, and seems to be aware of the wonderful SOUND words can make when they're played off ea I guess I'm a biased reviewer here.
But he's got some wonderful imagery in here, and seems to be aware of the wonderful SOUND words can make when they're played off each other. The "Self-Interview" is also a highlight. It gives the reader an idea of what was going on between Morrison's ears, what he was striving for in his writing.
But it does yield some fine, fascinating writing by a well-read man who valued words. Mar 30, Brandon rated it really liked it Recommends it for: I have been a fan of the Doors since watching Oliver Stone's biopic and I've since been intrigued by the persona of Jim Morrison. While Stone's film and other critics often view Morrison as a drunken buffoon, I could see there was more to him. I've read a handful of biographies and it has only helped increase my awe and respect of the 60's music icon.
Wilderness is the I have been a fan of the Doors since watching Oliver Stone's biopic and I've since been intrigued by the persona of Jim Morrison. Wilderness is the first volume in a collection from Morrison's personal notebooks with poetry collected throughout the years.
There were some great pieces included though there were also a great bit where I couldn't quite follow what Morrison was feeling. Some of the included poems struck me as word association exercises he may have happened to jot down in his notebooks. Morrison had, in interviews, mentioned he had hoped there would be points where he would write "automatically", in which he puts pen to paper and lets his subconscious guide it, though he admitted it never worked that way; I felt a couple of the poems in the collection seemed to be possible attempts at "automatic" writing and were merely his flow of consciousness at the time of writing.
Part insight, part mystery. While I may not had understood Morrison's poetry in it's entirety, there was enough in the collection that could sense what he was feeling that it gave me a deeper understanding of the man behind the lyrics. If you've ever been intrigued by the self-proclaimed "Lizard King" and the autobiographies don't cut it, I strongly suggest your take a moment to glance over some of his poetry and let Morrison invite you into his mind in his own words.
Nov 15, Christine added it. Like The American Night: The Writings of Jim Morrison Volume 2, Wilderness provides readers with the inspiring, albeit often confusing, hallucinatory poetry of Morrison.
The rhythm of the pieces often themselves intoxicating, one can almost feel as if the phonemic structure of Morrison's work has an underlying pattern that the average person just cannot quite articulate.
For aspiring poets, this collection of poems is an extraordinary example of the affects of sound on poetry and how important i Like The American Night: For aspiring poets, this collection of poems is an extraordinary example of the affects of sound on poetry and how important it is for a word's sound to make an impact on the reader.
If you think you know Jim Morrison from the classic rock station and the Oliver Stone movie, think again. Some deep stuff here. Sep 11, Drew rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is a wonderful collection that goes, in my opinion, far beyond his writings with that band. I read this volume straight through it on the plane ride home a few days later. I read every word of each poem, sometimes flipping back a few pages to reread one that was echoing in the back of my mind.
Morrison reminded me more of 18th and 19th century poets. While everything resonated with me, there were a few lines that stood out.
Echoing the second generation of Romantics e. Shelley and Keats , Morrison writes: Jun 23, Betty Gowans rated it really liked it. Though it may be difficult for some readers to understand where Jim was coming from in his poems, they were overall visionary and beautiful in their own right. Some poems were purely observation, but that was what he saw in society from his perspective. While some may shudder at the grotesque and scoff at the pedestrian poems, that is his artistic expression in its rawest form.
I feel his poems are the lyrics that didn't quite cut it for the rest of the doors. A marvelous read for any Doors or m Though it may be difficult for some readers to understand where Jim was coming from in his poems, they were overall visionary and beautiful in their own right. A marvelous read for any Doors or modern poetry fanatic.
Jul 29, Jeanne Ar C'hazh Koad rated it it was amazing. Gorgeous, inspiring, filled with the beauty of destruction and creation. A milestone in my life. Jan 04, Conor Callahan rated it it was amazing. This book was amazing. It was the first poetry book by Jim Morrison that I have read and it really was an enjoyable read. The book was appropriately titled "Wilderness" because Jim often used the word in his poems, and allot of his poems featured themes of the wild.
Most the poems focused on his opinions of life, Death, Music, and modern America from Because this book was released after his death there are a few unfinished poems in the book. Allot of the poems are also not titled, but This book was amazing.
Allot of the poems are also not titled, but many poets did this and in some cases I feel this added to the effect of the poem. I found many different poems were titled "LAmerica".
This brought me interest. It seems as if he wrote about the same subject many times under the same title. Each poem under this title shared his thoughts on America and most specifically Los-Angeles. Each different poem had a different thought on this subject and I found my self being very interested every time I would see that title again.
I thought that the book was arranged very well. Poems with similar or the same subject were some times placed together but common themes were spread out amongst the book. This kept the book following the same themes and I thought it worked well to show Jim Morrison's train of thought.
I also like the different styles of poems in the book. Jim didn't stick to one form of writing poetry he was very versatile in his poem structure. I found his view points on life and death very interesting in the diction he word use to describe it.
I found those to be my favorite of all of the poems in the book and I found my self understanding his view points on these topics. I would recommend this book to any one 16 and up that has love for poetry or The Doors; No one under sixteen because of the occasional language and the themes of sex and drugs.
Over all I think this is a great book and I could find my self reading it several times more. How to rate someones poetry and quotes other than five stars? I loved every page and every words and every feeling that it gaved me.
Dec 18, Cheryl rated it it was amazing. I suppose if I died today and some bunch of jackasses published my notebooks full of unpolished, rambling or snippets poetry, I'd be embarrassed as hell, but I'd hope they would have the profound affect on someone that these did on me. Obsessed as a teen, I am still haunted today by his words, and he probably influenced my writing style more than any other poet.
Jan 12, Heather rated it it was amazing. Delving into the mind of a person or presence like that of Jim Morrison is a privilege. This is one of my personal favorites Feb 01, Mark rated it it was amazing.
I will always love Jim Morrison and his poetry. He was a genius and he will be remembered. That is if the world survives nehneh do you think maybe 5 thousand years from now people might still read him? I can't. I think he is one of the finest poets this country ever produced. Jun 02, Richard Garza rated it it was amazing.
A great collection of offbeat poetry written by a brilliant mind in Jim Morrison. I would highly recommend checking it out for anyone who is a fan of The Doors or just really strange but intriguing poetry. Definitely a good read.
