The darkest of rain

The darkest of rains

Come at night when you sleep

Pouring down like the tears

While little children weep

I perch on the window sill

Waiting,

Watching,

For the right moment to enter

Your dreams while you sleep

The 1 thing that writers/bloggers need to know before they begin.

While I have loved my journey of blogging and writing so far, the one aspect of it that I wasn’t prepared for was how socially isolating it is!  It can be weighty for your average social butterfly like me.

I love social media and corresponding and working with fellow artists through my blog.  I email with so many people, Skype chat, we comment on each others blogs, Tweet and facebook and I have developed a great fondness for many of my readers and people that I collaborate with but it can still feel ‘impersonal’.   Continue reading

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

I will also be  continuing and showcasing Friday’s Featured Poet as well.

If any of the above interests you please see the tabs listed at the top of my main page for more information.

Please feel free to share your thoughts with me.

I walk and wait

My state

Of mind

Blank

Drowning (in my own fears)

Frowning (the lost years)

The birth

Of new life

Crowning

Rooms away

Reminders of a different day

Full of cries of life

Not anguish and strife

Tears pooling my eyes

I dare not blink

I want the tears to dry

For I fear if I cry

Let a single tear drop

My heart may just stop

Along with yours

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
