Reluctance

I don’t think the things I thought are things I think I know are true They’re just things I think I thought because I was so mad at you My heart was lost, my soul, alone, left not knowing what to do Desperate for my minds release, to guide me and to get me through … More Reluctance

Missing Pieces

Why must this piece to this puzzle allude Why doesn’t it fit like I know it should do Was it carved in the way that it was meant to Or is it just me that can’t make it conclude Why can’t I focus on that which I should Instead of these things which I dream … More Missing Pieces

Life

A raindrop has one chance to fall To land where it might fulfill all As do dandelions sway They, just once, will drift away Breeze will carry, gently now The seeds of life that they endow No second chances, no regrets One life is what each person gets Do not be nervous Feel not afraid … More Life

The One: Entry 2

It’s weird for me to be telling this story. I just want to be upfront about that before we get too much further into this little journey you and I are about to go on. Sometimes I wonder why it’s so hard to talk about this stuff when I’m face to face with people, but … More The One: Entry 2

Hello Ma’am

Hello ma’am, I have for you A query I need answers to You see, I was across the bar Seated, writing, mind afar But then a shimmer caught my eye It was your gaze as you walked by And so I was compelled to think Would this girl join me for a drink? Now here … More Hello Ma’am

Woe is Me

Friday night, bars are closing I don’t know why I’m here Feelings hit me deep inside, stepping in this Uber ride It’s loneliness I fear Every time, inside my head I say that she’s the one Naïveté and ignorance have got me acting with no sense So why oh why do I keep saying this … More Woe is Me

And so on this day A poem, shall have she For promises stand And our word, but are we When darkness shall fall Worry not, she’ll beguile And light up the room  With naught but a smile From nowhere she stamps She spins and she stirs Painting life’s purpose The blims and the blurs Once … More The One

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

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: 6

King Jordain She knows exactly where my heart lies. Buried deep within that sheath of angst, she knows the truth. She knows I cannot raise my blade to her. This foolhardy campaign is fueled by her insatiable desire for revenge; her misguided malfeasance. Yet reality continues to elude her. The entirety of her army’s morale rests … More On the Eve: 6

Favian, Royal Record-Keeper & Historian of the East The West shall never comprehend the world the way we Easterners do. What ire could have possibly made Jocasta think she could overtake us?

On the Eve: 3

Antony – Commander of Queen Jocasta’s Army We have taken refuge in Clarmont, the first safe village we crossed following our withdrawal. If one can even call it a village, that is. There is little more than battered huts and peasant farmers here. Far less than what one would deem an ideal location for which … More On the Eve: 3

Love & Loss

Adalasia: First Entry July, 1943. Sicily. A curious thing happened today. It’s amazing how different things are, amidst the bombings and the shells and the shouting. A week ago I was making pies. Prepping soups upstairs in my father’s shop. My days were filled with that of cheer and joy. Now I find myself coddled … More Love & Loss
