I Heal

How-to-Heal-a-Broken-Heart1

 

It’s been thirteen years,

It was a year that

I realized my fears

A year that I thought

I may drown in my own tears

The memory of it

Remains seared

On my heart

burned so deep

I’m charred

Branded

I felt abandoned

And Scarred Continue reading

DO SOMETHING!

Image
I have been spending a lot of time doing things worthy of writing about lately, or at least I hope they are worth reading!
One thing I’ve learned about writing and most especially writing poetry, is that you need to take time and some times extended time to immerse yourself in life, love and laughter to continue to be inspired to write!
I am happy to share that I have been feeling the desire to write resurfacing, so here’s hoping for some soon to be new inspired words.
What have you been immersed in lately?
Cheers!

The Power of the Pink Pen

Pretty and pink as could be

If only they could see

Her

As flirtatious

As she was gracious

As worldly

As her hair curly

She was fiery

Feelings she left in her diary

For she would be hung

If she was found speaking of such things

So young

Or maybe they would cut out her tongue

And splash it with rum

And interject

So she wouldn’t infect

The lack of respect

That being more than pretty in pink

Could inject Continue reading

The Grin

I can feel it creeping in

The little corners of my mouth

Want to turn against me and give in

To an awe inspired grin

Collide

Wild side

Worlds collide

She tried to live by the rules

Implement her Dr. taught tools

Strategies?

Remedies?

But it was a slippery slope

With only words as her rope

Observers filled with hope Continue reading

Chris McMullen: Read Tuesday, Black Friday

I’d like to introduce those of you haven’t heard about Read Tuesday to this spectacular event!

Image

I’d like to thank Jennifer, Writings of a Mrs., for the opportunity to do this guest post. (*my pleasure Chris*)

The problem with Black Friday for book sales:

Every year when Black Friday arrives, customers do plenty of shopping, buying products for themselves and gifts for others. Stores offer enticing discounts, at least on select products, and shoppers stand in lines for hours before the stores even open. Continue reading

She is led under

As she wanders through the hollows of her mind

wondering what she will find

She stumbles upon memories of glass

That shine as bright as the suns first glow

Lined up in tidy rows Continue reading
