So let’s talk about Anxiety…

In Hey Life, It's Me Again, Writing by Leave a Comment

Anxiety is like being stuck in a circle of momentum – You are constantly moving within a defined set of parameters that represent your mental resilience. If you move out of that circle, things get a little messy. Every single person deals with varying levels of anxiety almost everyday. It can be as small as worrying about what you’re going to …

Souls – Poetry [Freeverse]

In Poetry, Writing by Leave a Comment

A series of short poems that describe people in my life using various letters of the alphabet.    Souls emanating every color of every shade Ones seen by only a few, their brightness hidden Trembling under the sun, they fade But not all souls are forbidden. Beginning with one riddled with sickness Brightness, suffering in frozen solitude Blazing, harboring rays …

Blackened Flight – Poetry [Freeverse]

In Poetry, Writing by 2 Comments

A dark poem commenting on human corruption.  Structure binds our veins to glory Tying blood. Memory knots—Flow vanishing Knots tighter, limbs blue They plan to cut them off for you Sent to factories in polluted skies Blackened tar, innocent doves A promise to pay you for your flesh Like feathers blackened, a tainted mesh Of empty change jars filled with …

My Darling – Poetry [Sonnet]

In Poetry, Writing by Leave a Comment

A poem regarding the issue of being controlled by others/society  Sit my darling, listen to orders now Take a seat, ink in hand, a willing soul Rules and regulations, papers to vow Wisdom to offer, structure as a whole Words with lessons, blindly grinning—Black lids Sight useless, a clipped bird in its chains But orders are orders, ones that forbids …

In Poetry, Writing by Leave a Comment

A short poem commenting on the relationship between man and earth. I wake to wind and burning coals inside my chest, a ribbon the color of cardinal feathers tied to my ring finger.

The Colorless – Poetry [Freeverse]

In Poetry, Writing by Leave a Comment

A poem that applies to all the creative dreamers that feel stifled by reality.   Sometimes I find myself grasping the air before me My hands are chapped, and thin. The air is cold. What I don’t realize is that I am attempting to grasp onto my Own sense of wonder—my sense that my mind could truly create… Something. Something …

Woven Brokenness – Poetry [Freeverse]

In Poetry, Writing by Leave a Comment

Had a random spur of inspiration when I woke up and decided to write this freestyle piece (I’m bad with poetry because half the time I end up making it sound like prose…but that’s just how my thoughts translate a lot of the time when I don’t censor myself.) So here it is! It’s short and unrefined, but I hope …

Freewrite: The Color of Rust

In Creative Writing, Writing by Leave a Comment

Preview: I had been laying in my bed today, in midst of dream and consciousness, and this twisted story came to mind (something that usually happens as I dream). It’s a free write, so it’s rough, and I just let my brain go, and let the character unfold. It’s definitely unfinished, but it’s going somewhere. Work in Progress: The Color …
