Hello people! What to say? I'm a Christian girl. I like to write. I write tons of poetry, some short stories, and other things.
God bless you!

Message from Writer

You can be nostalgic for a place you've never been if you've been there in your imagination.

strokes of paint on canvas/those are my words on a page/watch as the ink blots drawn from the depths of my mind/stain papers as they grow yellow with age/wonder if they will live forever/in the imagination and thoughts of someone/for sometimes you'll find if the words are important/blotting them out is not easily done

Thank you to all who have supported me, and feedback is always welcome!
Also, if you comment on a piece of mine, I will generally respond to it at some point.

#wackywords Catching a bus to find myself again

i cannot decipher your 
unceasing serenity

i who am forever doomed
to rove the earth 
to never have a true home
am not capable of having
even an inkling
of what it is to be 
loved and cared for
to be at peace 
to not be 
lost in this solitude
as i have been
all the days of my life

i must be the one
who will always catch the bus
all the time going
farther away
from where i want to be
 i must do it
because you won't

when i look into the mirror
i see you by my side
yet when i smash your image
trying to rid myself
of your unnerving presence
only a shard of glass
remains
for you are only my reflection
you are only a misconception

i suppose you must be
transcendent 
how could i have expected
less
from one so calm and 
happy? 

you are only a figment 
of my imagination
only the product
of my ink on white
sheets

yes
i think i must be going crazy
because you are alive 
only
in my mind
an imaginary 
balancing of the scales,
i suppose
your calm
to my anxiety
your lightness of step
to my heaviness of heart

i think you must be
that one part of myself
that i have somehow lost
that's why i catch the bus
ever farther from my destination
because i can't help but keep
looking for you
roving the earth endlessly
in hopes of finding you

and yet i can't help but think
that really,
i search in vain
and i can't help but wonder
if that image i see
in that shard of mirror
will ever merge with me
and make me 
whole
again
