My Attempt to Write a Sonnet. Should be easy, right?

I’ve been on a bit of a poetry kick lately. I haven’t dropped this idea of a poetry collection that will one day grace the Wattpad app. In proper preparation, I’ve been looking at different poetry styles and structures, trying to decide which one(s) I want to use. The examples I’ve found so far on…

I Got Some Cool News Today

So something awesome happened today. I got a message from NY Literary Magazine that their 2017 edition of Erotic Poetry, Flames, was being released today. I had submitted a piece in for a contest via Writer’s Café last year and I won 2nd place, but when the magazine listed the winners for the anthology on…

Held by Your Words

Of all the tools that you possess It is your words that I love most In a single word you cast out distress And remove my burdensome yoke Just like your touch your words give a shiver Your voice a soft caress Close by my side or miles away My need I feel pressed to…

You Aren’t Going to Believe This!

Ok, so this is what happened. After work on Friday (two weeks from opening night of my show) I get a call from the father of one of my cast members. He told me that she checked herself into a hospital where they have admitted her for a few days and she won’t know exactly…

Of the Fates that Await Me (updated)

Of the fates that await me I can stomach all but one To stare at a mirrored visage And find that I recognize no one That I am no longer myself With no idea where I am How did I come to be in this place? And what’s worse, knowing all that, and simply not…

My Thoughts at the Moment

I feel driven to go to places I would not have dared Not to go on to my peril, but to take my seat and justly be there I feel lately separated from my own creator Not that we were ever apart, but I would just talk to Him again later The distance is only…

The Boldness of People

I miss the boldness of people The passion that just can’t be ignored The drive that causes you to lose sleep at night No one could dissuade you from what you were sure Words meant something when they were said Because they carried with them weight Action and promise were in the bones of strong…

No Longer Impossible

My thoughts consider what I once thought impossible Now I look where I am and it’s true The distance I’ve traveled and the man I’ve become I can get where I’m going on through I dare not look at the finish with a gaze that’s too long Then I will never again take a step…

Respite from the Chaos

The time and space in which I fill has become…busy Don’t get me wrong I do not start my own poor sad song I just lend my words strong to press through the throng To break through the madness and for a moment be still   Things are good and productive I have things to…

Now on to the next thing!

I submitted my official word count in to NaNoWriMo this morning to get my win. The rough draft is completed!  I already have a good list of things I need to adjust and flesh out, but the first big step is finished.  I’m taking a few weeks to step away for a bit from the…

The Time Assassin

The gunman ran up the stairs so swiftly I had to do all I could to keep up Time was ticking for him to make target All I had to do was distract him to stop He moved through the door of the stairs up ahead Trying to close it back as I followed I…

The Cyborg of London

Opening my eyes I struggle to remember Where last I remember my footing I recall coming down a cobblestone street And came upon a pair of men looting Stepping forward to confront them, I engaged them straight through The two overcame me quite fast With a horrible thrust to the road I was thrown My…
