Permit Me

live-461731_960_720

The devil paid me a visit

Whispered I was beautiful 

Told me I was the one

Then he opened my heart

Swallowed my soul

He spit out my bones

That seed of self-doubt

Hangs on like a long, final note

That rancid shadow of misery

Permit me to tell you

That I’ve had enough

Permit me to introduce myself

I am raging glory

And I own this moment

Silhouette of Your Soul

nature-3108052_960_720

I laughed at the moon yesterday as it hid behind a cloud

And I stood on our mountain; broken by the wind

The silhouette of your soul

Slipped into my dreams

As I pondered painfully

What’s next

It was so much like you

Yet, it was nothing at all

The crow of my dimension

Led to my descent

Down that long lonely path

I searched for redemption

But all I found

Was a silhouette of your soul

Entertain

cd-cover-2993231_960_720

 

I entertain you

With broken words of heartbreak

You are not alone

In this wretched world

I’m here to share your sorrow

To collect your tears

You’ll live through all this

Wounds become scars of healing

Time is the great reckoning

Of forgotten love

Ok, I thought I saw that ‘entertain’ was the word of the day, but the word of the day has disappeared, so who the hell knows. I have been busy with school, and also finalizing my novel – my books sales came to a screeching halt. Most people that bought the book or received a free copy have not left a review. I guess that is just how it goes in the beginning.

Thank you so much to anyone who bought it or picked up a free copy during the promotion. And thank you even more to anyone that left a review! ❤

Love you guys so much for all your support and following. I am still working on Book 2 of poetry as well. Keep your eyes peeled!

❤ Have a great Tuesday

I Put My Poetry on KDP

Well, I did it! Available January 1, 2018, is my first installment of poetry. Some of them are from this blog, but most of them are brand spanking new! I am so excited that I’m not sure whether I am going to pass out, vomit, or cry myself into oblivion. There was no way of knowing how terrifying this would feel until I did it, but it’s too late now. I can’t turn back.

 

 

My novel is still in edits and getting this book of poetry published helps me keep my ass in gear. I am hoping that my first official novel to be published will be out by June 2018. In the meantime, why not enjoy some other work? 🙂

I’m so brand new at this thing that I am taking it super slow. The book will only be available through KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) until I can figure the rest out. People have asked me if there will be a print copy, and there will be in the future. I can also make it print on demand, too.

Well, you don’t know how deep the water is until you jump in, right?

Happy Wednesday!

Theory of Doubt

There is a threshold

That no longer cries

Amidst the darkness

Of despondent sighs

Forever is okay

If you’ve got nowhere to go

Angels were once sinners

On a dark and lonely road

Buckle up your sunshine

And pack it in your heart

Doubt your self a rainbow

Just be sure to start

As long as you’re going

Be sure to push on through

That makeshift smile you wear

Sure looks good on you…

The Zoo

Once upon a time

When I was quite little

My mother took me to the zoo

Among bark, cold and brittle

We had to bundle up

For the air was quite chilly

We were off on an adventure

None of this seemed silly

The parking lot was packed with cars

As people filed through the turnstile

When I made it to the other side

My face and eyes did smile

There were critters everywhere

Some furry and big; some scaly and small

I stopped and stood for a time

When I approached the best one of all

I noticed it lying in the brush

Its fur was spotted in many spots

I heard it meow instead of roar

It was a beautiful ocelot.
