I love to write. I often overthink. I often overreact. I have come far. I am not there yet. I have no idea where I'm going to end up.

Chapter 7: Coming of Age

There was something so wonderfully wild about the man.

Samuel knew he just had to make him his general. Samuel saw in Ferris a true match; the man was just as ruthless, but twice as strong. Ferris was a bit of a hot head, but refreshingly unfoolish. Finally, someone interesting to talk to!

Some had tried to advise Samuel not to give a half blinded man such an important role, but clearly, these advisors underestimated...

Chapter 6: Realm of the Fairy

Gavin was wondering if there were any guards left in the castle as they fled.

He was also wondering if Queen Ada had actually slept at all. She said she did, but as they bolted through the woods, she looked as though she might pass out and slip off her horse. Although, Gavin had to admit that he hadn't slept much either.

They had done their best to make trails that would confuse even...

Moonlit

PROMPT: Forward Backward

come,
let her be

               she stands solitary
barbed briar thorns curl around her arms,
 raised like the prick of a porcupine quill

                       she is
                      moonlit,
            steadying each breath
          like the panting of a dog

                      patient,
         the rustling of the dark is
                 nothing to fear

               but, fear itself is
                 hard to tame

                        so
        she is its only beast-master

             don't get too close

Chapter 5: Cattails and Carrots

The other guards had been too confused to stop the four from stealing away with two hastily saddled horses.

These were some of the guards who were still loyal to the crown. After hearing rustling in the stables, they were very confused to find one of their Lord Generals and their Queen. What troubled them more was that they both took off with the Prince and a young fairy serf, fearfully and without explanation. They...

Chapter 4: Hand of a Queen

Leo sat upright on his bed, his back to the wall.

He was counting. The guards at his door were on five minute shifts, constantly rotating so that no pair was left long enough to get any ideas. It was like they couldn't trust anyone, and really, they couldn't. Leo's eyes had quite adjusted to the grey darkness of his room, and his breath left him with every darting shadow. The only thing that...

Chapter 3: Funeral of a Father

She was so afraid to tell him, but it had to be done.

Ada made her way to her son's room, explaining what had happened as best she could, which meant she was teary-eyed, distraught, and in a state of shock. She held Leo tighter than ever before as they wept together. Leo would never doubt his mother, but it seemed impossible for his father to just... be gone.

Later that morning, the emergency...

To the Big-Hearted

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

to the sensitive and pensive in this world of get-up-and-go,
remember to lay down every now and then;
surrender under the sky-falling pressure of things
great and small

let them pin you down
in the safety of your home
to avoid sudden collapse elsewhere

these things must be felt

it is not weak
to break down and cry
when you hear the masses defying truth
and watch the silencing of youth,
to hurt as you witness the painful proof
that...
