When I’m Gone

It saddens me that people are So short-sighted, they don’t see far And that these words will not be read Until I live no more, lay dead It is the truth, I do not care What you might think, you’re unaware Just what these things I say right now Might truly mean, and yet somehow … More When I’m Gone

What If They Died

What if they died? What if that artist Who painted their works So great, yet shunned For personality quirks What if that singer Who hit impossible notes Wasn’t caught up in drama Or the brunt of your jokes What if you focused On content they write Instead of the bullshit The cheap and contrite Why … More What If They Died

Forward

It’s often that i see this If truth were to be told Despite the goal: inspire It turns warmth to bitter cold If ever you are struggling If ever you are down Remember they don’t matter And that words can’t bring you down For often will you hear, when You are looking far ahead That … More Forward

Become

Frustrating, it is To retreat to the hole As you narrowly focus On your one, divine goal A life you desire Yet you know you can’t grasp As attentions diverted  The white fence, it won’t last And how hard can it be When to God, you enlist  When you tormentingly believe  That He might not … More Become

The Writers Group

There exists a place  In fabled lore Where writers race Both rich and poor  Some ask for tips Some say hello With wine-filled sips True colors show Some fight a lot They bitch and moan More oft’ than not They’re sad, alone And in this land The fun, I sing Is throwing sand And arguing  … More The Writers Group

Mission

The focus settles, nestles in I sit here waiting, lights are dim  And though I know what must be done  I always feel that loaded gun  The push to work, this call to act For naught fulfills a ghost’s contract Forever now, forever then, Armed with paper, bladed pen No fear of future, charge ahead … More Mission

Normal? I’m Not

Where my favorite people at? You folks know who I mean Calling weirdos, punks and nerds The strange, shy and obscene Come, together we shall join Embrace what others say Then smack their smugly normie face When they judge us for hearsay I say let ’em talk, don’t you? Let them follow all their “laws” … More Normal? I’m Not

The Gentleman

Chivalrys dead! Or so it is said On this, I ponder quite long It’s really no chore Kindly holding your door Yet you glare, like something is wrong  It’s fine! Some will sneer I’ll get it! They’ll jeer Independent, a woman am I Your help? I’ve no need These mouths, he shall feed Career driven, … More The Gentleman

Ms. Scribbler

Hello my friend! Please lend an ear A tale have I For you to hear Once upon A timely time A maiden lived Who loved to rhyme She’d sit outside As sun shined bright Observe the world And write and write Her rhymes were filled With love and fear And all the things From there … More Ms. Scribbler

Vengeance 

Your sticks and your stones May break all my bones  But these acts, I swear you’ll regret For time heals us all It builds a stone wall And this, we shall not forget You came here to slay  To take mine away All that, which we hold close and dear Yet here, I still stand … More Vengeance 

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

An Ode to the Letter “Z”

Zealots desired to bless my soul Zilch is my energy left Zoned out, these odes have taken their toll Zoo in my mind, though ’twas deft   Zip up this project, my brain can now rest Zero letters now lie ahead Zephyrs now soothe me, caressing my chest Zodiac today – time for bed
