Hopelessly addicted to metaphors.
Constant daydreamer.
Best at short stories and poems, not necessarily the best writer.
Is very desperate for a daily, three-hour English grammar lesson.
Lover of winter and the color white.
Loves hugs!

Message from Writer

I wish you all daily happiness...

. . .

Don't forget to go over that manuscript once, or twice, or fifteen more times!

. . . .
I carry you with me into the world,
into the smell of rain
& the words that dance between people
& for me, it will always be this way,
walking in the light,
remembering being alive together”
― Brian Andreas

(I love this and the smell of rain.)

Point B

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition

I grew up to this world
with the mindset of a toddler
Laugh, love, and live
Find my happily ever after
And they said to that brown-eyed doll:
To go to school, get to college.
It's worth more than
street-smart knowledge

All it took was a brand new home,
and a brand new friend
Who knew me more than me
She called my plans for my life story:
The typical A-to-Z
One big sip of grape juice
And she said, "Honey..."

FREE WRITING

Smile for me, Egret.
 Show me your face.
Sunlight you've kissed, Egret.
 Heaven embraced

Don't drop your curled leaves
 Pray all the time
One last chance, Egret.
 Kiss me goodbye.

Show your voice, Egret.
 Even a lie.
Scar my own, Egret.
 This time, tell me why.

My little secret:
 You've kept me alive.
You left me, Egret,
 that day I died.

Don't you know...
It's a long way down that aisle
And there's no highway to the sky
You'll have to walk on grass
walk on glass
walk in glass slippers
You'll find me there, don't worry
But right now you should be busy
Busy looking for Point B

So I'll ride a horse sidesaddle
Wear skinny jeans to battle
Douse my face in blush and powder
Looked in the mirror,

A Legacy's Origin

His lips a rose-red garden 
she's tended to by daybreak.
Her touch a lifetime's worth of dews,
and kept his dreams awake.

She's the plague's first victim,
and he's the breakneck quarry.
He plays the first act,
she's forever the finale.

Seasons wrote their chapters—
hair strawberry to silver.
Come steeples of razors,
whispers remembered and withered.

And so it became,
he was the moonlight,
she was the rain,
I am the smell of earth they made.
