My Dear Self

My dear, You never knew what love was, Although you thought you knew. You tortured yourself, denying yourself, believing that what you had was enough. Over and over you stumbled, Just to pick yourself up again. You never understood those who grieved, despaired for a 'love' lost. Then you found it, a life with love, and you realized the truth. Love is a blessing given to nonbelievers, which can turn even the stubbornest hearts. Love is a crystal ball of fortune, telling a future of undeniable desire. Love is the meaning of life, That can be hidden for many a lifetime. Now you see that life was an illusion, a pleasant dream before awak

The Love Test

I lay in bed in the dark, snuggled up under my covers. My eyes were closed as I started to drift, wishing he was there holding me. I smiled. As I had in years past, in years with past partners, I asked myself two questions. These questions had been discarded as pointless; a self-test of my love that had seemingly proved a pointless exercise. Yet I still asked myself them. They were like a habit or tradition; I couldn't not ask myself these questions. Sleepily I thought those questions to myself, picturing a scenario in my dreams. What would you say if he asked you to marry him right this moment? YES! Came the instant reply. My drowsy mind s

Be Renewed. Be a Creator. Be a Bird. Be Free.

Stand back and look upon me I am a new woman Just like each new wave crashing upon the sea I shall crash into life renewed For there are so many things I can foresee That many need shown. You think that I am but a lamb But I have never been stronger My mind creates pearls just like a clam both white and dark pearls Because I am not perfect, madame I am a good and evil combined. I could beat down your ignorant words Like the wall that they are My strength will likely get on your nerves and you won't understand why But I am more free than you, just like a bird Open your mind and be free too. I will not bully you into believing as I do Merely

Look at them

Look at us in our skin tight jeans our fashionable jumpers and shirts Look at us in our warm, multi-bedroom houses as the rain pour and the wind rages Look at us eating our bread, and meat and veg smothered with sauces and spices So why do you complain? Too cold. Too warm Too spicy. Too salty I'm hungry. I'm thirsty I don't like that. I don't want to Really? Do you see them in their rags? The only clothes they own Do you see them out in the cold with the weather wearing them down? Do you see them, all skin and bone? without food or clean water "Yes," you say. "I saw them on TV." ...But did you really see them?
See all

My Bio
I have written a young adult fantasy novel called Sky Stone and am in the process of writing a sequel to that novel. You can currently read a synopsis on my website below. I occasionally enjoy writing poetry as well. I am also currently trying to teach myself how to draw (mostly manga style) since I don't think I am very good. I thank YouTube for my lessons :P

I am on deviantart mostly to share and document my process in my drawing journey. If you have any helpful tips they are appreciated :D

Thanks for reading! xx
