I love writing, reading, gaming, running, and debating. I just want to improve my writing skills and hopefully make new connections along the way.

I hope you enjoy my writing and leave a review. I'd love any opinions on how I can improve and would be glad to share what I know.

The Writer

FREE WRITING

Sitting
Writing silently
Observing
Yet indifferent

Words of nourishment
Of the truthful optimist
The world fades around
Only thoughts and a pen
Friends and family
Pass away quietly 
The air of the room 
Becomes the center piece

Friend disappears 
Presence unnoticed
Family walks away
Far too late to dilate
Fate whims with a grin
Cupping the thoughts from within
Pulling, down, under the mountains
Of the shrines of Cadmus
