Poem on a Picture

So, I figured out how to put my poems on my paintings… I am digging it! I am sure other people do this, and I have to say, it is wicked cool. So, after some hardcore studying for my finals, I am going to twiddle with this. It is definitely a notable tool in my arsenal of ways to promote my work.

Have a great weekend!

You stood in the shadows like a dying dog

And wondered why I spit on the floor

Well, don’t you crawl back to me

Sniveling in your filth

I’m better than that now

I’ve gotten out

I smelled the fear on your pristine face

As you laughed and edged my disgrace

Well who’s feeling all that shit now

All that pain you disavowed

Solemn flowers poke in the distance

Despite the sick and twisted resistance

You just keep going through the black

Asking when I’m coming back

Bestowed Upon Me

hand-1549399_960_720

You stood on the other side

Tucked behind your shadow

I was wicked

For you, for me, for life

Decrepit deceit runs

Long in my blood

Bestowed upon me

As the child of a demon

Bestowed upon me

As a soul of the damned

Where was my light, my splendor, my wonder

You reached out, dared to touch me

We stared and smiled

Silent and begging

Hopeless and wanting

We wanted to pull away

Instead, we burned

Turned to ashes

Together

We started anew

Flame

campfire-1853835_960_720

Luminescent flame; nightly deranged

Sequel in my skin

Where do I begin?

My eyes pierce the glow; heaven unfolds

And just like that

My dreams are here

Like water in the wheel

The vibration consumes me; damp earth, infectious

No one could feel the sting; save for my luminescent heart

That’s just how it goes sometimes…

Frantic Hope

reflection-2922045_960_720.jpg

I got a message the other day

It plainly said they took you away

You told me you were innocent

This was a crime you did not commit

I had frantic hope that this was true

But then I learned the painful truth

There’s so much I wish I could change

Things that I would rearrange

But all we have is the right now

And we’ll make it through this somehow

Today! Poetry Through Heartbreak

Guess what? Today is the day! Today is the day that my long anticipated second book of poetry is here. You can purchase a  paperback at Amazon or download it to your Kindle. Once again, thank you so much for your love and support. It truly means so much to me.

You all rock! ❤ My poetry is a small way for me to give back to the great humans on this planet for all that you have done for me. I truly appreciate every single one of you.

Premonition Identical

Premonition row

A bright and lonely threshold

Stepping through the light

Bend to the righteous

Identical assumptions

I can see through you
