The Song of Greed

Once upon a time before the universe existed There lived someone who thought and said “well maybe I should twist it” Lo behold, the worlds were born because He was assisted By those He made to fill the realm, the humans He enlisted He started simple, started quick, for there was so much work to … More The Song of Greed

We Done Lost Our Minds

Okay ya’ll. I haven’t written an actual blog post for a looooong time. I’ve pretty much used my site for poetry, short stories, etc. But today…oh boy. Not today. Many of you are probably familiar with the dating app, Bumble. If you aren’t, here’s a quick crash course: Tinder, but yellow. Just kidding; basically Bumble … More We Done Lost Our Minds

Believe

There is but one thing that is scary And that is to be ordinary Not unique, nor one of kind Though many seem to pay no mind   No thoughts that wander, thoughts that fly Thoughts that others can’t deny It is so frightening in this place Endless darkness; timeless space   Naught becomes of … More Believe

Pyramid

Pain It fills my veins Evades the remedies Reaches all my extremities A life of love so temporary, I allude I opt instead for darkness, and solitude Pen and pad are all I want, they’re all I need Though I try to hide the pain, each day I grieve Search for calm and peace of … More Pyramid

Together

In my chamber, losing sleep Rocking, thinking, silently Watching broadcasts quietly Observe this world, so violently I wonder if the day will be When people live, peacefully Shedding war, with treaty No longer loving fearfully It all could change, if only we Would be the change we want to see We must admit, reluctantly To … More Together

What We Are

At night, I know, my mind has proved For that’s when all the mask’s removed We work and play, and yet we think Of all the things we want, a link   A link to all we want to be So instead we make a fantasy We dream and wish and wish and dream And … More What We Are

Don’t Wait

Oftentimes, I’ll look to see The person looking back at me Watching through a hazy lens At who that strange reflection is   Staring forward, several blinks Is he the person that he thinks? Does he do the things he speaks? Is practice coming from the preach?   My eyes still glare, this man ahead … More Don’t Wait

My Dog

My Dog I wonder if my dog Knows he’s a dog Or if his cute little brain Is clouded in smog And instead he assumes He’s a human like me With thumbs all opposable And not paws as his feet I wonder if he thinks That I’m his pet to keep Keeping my water bowl … More My Dog

My Dog is Famous

Oooookay! Where do I even begin? I suppose a little background context is a good place to start. So my dog, Mr Baxter, has a nasty habit of chewing his leashes. He’s pretty much the perfect pup outside of that one annoying, economically burdening trait. Most of my brainstorming for writing is done with a … More My Dog is Famous

The Con of Cons

To give a little context, below is a reflection of my experience (as a volunteer) at the first Game of Thrones conference ever held. Working the Con provided a pretty good view of how things went administratively. I daresay the vast majority of the weekend was a massive success, but there was (understandably) a slight … More The Con of Cons

The Glamour

The Glamour There’s Queens and there’s Kings Yet so many things Get trapped and caught up in the day They really don’t see The you and the me The flutter, the flitter, the fray Our lives are our own Yet so many know Only glamour, the glit and the glee A lie, truth be told … More The Glamour

Mr. Puggle Fish

Quietly swimming, all alone Through a sea of madness and blue A tiny creature sighs to itself And wishes it’s dreams would come true “What’s wrong?” You might ask “What makes this fish sad?” “Oh why does this creature feel blue?” It’s simple, my friend This fish is alone Just one, out looking for two … More Mr. Puggle Fish

Life Flitters By

But Mom!  Says the little girl, pouting about  To the woman,  Who feels left than thirteen ‘Twas Tom! The girl cries, as she wrestles and shouts Pulling hair  As she’s acting so mean Have I grown? Asks the mother, all riddled and scared To herself, For yesterday seems Like she was  Just the poor little girl … More Life Flitters By

On the Eve: 10

Queen Jocasta – Sovereign Ruler of the West Lies. They plague our souls, causing us to act in ways of which we never believed ourselves capable. Yet we often cling to these falsities; desiring the reality we’ve fabricated over the painful truth that is life. Ignorance is bliss, they say. Perhaps there is some validity … More On the Eve: 10

On the Eve: 9

Hadrian Merlfang – Lord of the North I told him it would end this way, the fool. How many years now? Things never end as we intend. No, not ever. Our fresh, inexperienced selves, energized with the fervor of youth, see nothing but the ideal and the desired. Then, as it always is, the bitch … More On the Eve: 9
