Where There Is One, There Is Another

W

Where There Is One, There Is Another

Tears Will fall. Hearts will ache. We have all lost, Opening a void That new light yearns to fill. Life is cruel, swift and careless But offers just enough moments To make sure the light doesn't go out.

Broken Girl

Broken Girl

And she stood in the middle of a field crying for the shattered girl she once was and for the fragments that had never found their way back.

Space Man

S

Space Man

I am tracing all your constellations with galaxies tied to my finger tips. Stars behind your blue eyes shimmer like space dust on a distant planet. And you shoot by; reaching for the marbled black holes in my soul. Your space dust mixes with my star dust; filling my black holes with glittering gold.

mother's day cards

i hide regrets in a bouquet of roses sugar-sweet poetry pressed between pages written by someone who is not your daughter. today you wished me a Happy Mother's Day and i [ wished ] you one too i wished that i knew how to wish for you that i knew how to understand the black and white it's how you see the world and it's how i see you gray was never your color. today is a good day happiness is wished for and achieved, i suppose in some small way and i wish that i could open my arms and gather you in take your pain and all the things you've never told anyone but the truth is i'm broken and you're broken and we don't know how to be bro

Look Up

Look Up

From heartsore to heart soaring, I lose myself in a sky so blue I can see it.

Stubborn love

Stubborn love

I. We're getting old, but we can't grow old if you won't grow. II. I always hated that song, but the Clash never sang truer words. III. My hand, naked without your ring, is covered in dishwater when I find that photo mug I made you in college. You didn't use it much then, but now it's coffee-stained. I bite back tears and just manage not to lose my grip.

empty threat

empty threat

hand me the susurrus of your heart; i want it in my mouth, my tongue feeling the oracle hiding what is mine; secret veins crowning a forgotten land. quick, cut to the marrow of the matter; i cannot remain unwanted. i drink the pulse from your ears, plead to some forsaken power for grace. am i knocking on the hollow of your clavicle, a shelf full of porcelain hopes? i can see them thrumming, submerged in your skin thin with longing. a finger runs along the rim, ringing a crystalline cantata. here you cup the acid of unforgiven ways, where my unforgotten aches graze on blades of dark water bruising like a boot on heart. threaten me not, for where pain recedes my heartbreak rises and roars its name.

Sparrows

Sparrows

Sparrows scatter straw and feathers from rain gutters into our garden. The soil grabs hold, swallowing the morsels down underground.

lung verses

lung verses

open the front door breathe in the humid darkness the little green frogs singing their magic rain chant will call down the wet long before the night is gone hope they don't over do it

A Little About Me on DeviantART:

I have been writing since I was about six years of age. I write for my own enjoyment, a sense of inner fulfillment, and judge writing I read on the heart and soul of a piece that speaks to my inner heart. My writing is at times raw, but always honest. There is beauty everywhere and I seek it out, with an open mind and pen. I enjoy writing and reading novels of all sorts, but my favorite genres are Historical romance, fantasy, and suspense.

Away from DeviantART, I work daily in an Emergency room. Not surprisingly, there is always something exciting going on there. I do consider it my life’s work and love every minute of it. I also deem myself as a rather serious Abraham Lincoln scholar, and spend a great deal of my free time when not working studying, reading, learning, and eagerly collecting all things Lincoln.

What Can I Do For You Here?

As a former Literature Community Volunteer, I am very familiar with the community and will happily offer support to anyone who has questions or concerns at any time. I continue to strive my personal best to do whatever possible to make everyone’s experience here on DeviantART and beyond the absolute best that it can be.

Any other questions? Please feel free to send me a note.

Eclipse: A Devious Experience

Eclipse: A Devious Experience

The dreaded "switch" day for Eclipse has arrived, and I honestly feel as though I have lost a dear friend... I just wanted to highlight a few things that would help make the current experience better (besides having the old, trusty, beautiful tried and true layout back), I feel you all— but we all know Eclipse is here to stay, so the best thing we can do is keep offering insightful and helpful feedback. I wish to express that most of Eclipse is still "new" to me, because, to be frank, I refused to use the interface until today because I am 100% old school, old hat, been-here-since-dirt-early days (well, not that early, but 14-15 years is still well past a decade), so— I make no qualms about expressing my preference for the older layout. That said, I am trying my best to experiment and give it a chance, primarily because I love DeviantART so much and refuse to allow my beloved Literature Community to die. My Initial Observations: :pointr: I prefer my "old school" stats. Is
Just a few things, my dear community: I have a new mentoring slot via @seniormentors open, so if that is something you are interested in, check out the link to the poll here. Also, I am always adding new thoughts and insights to my Eclipse Deviou

Devious Celebration: 15 Years

Devious Celebration: 15 Years

On May 26th, in the early hours of the evening back in 2005, I first joined DeviantART. It feels surreal sometimes, having been active here so long. That said, it has been a subdued celebration for me this year, due to several reasons— but I wanted to take a few moments to cite and celebrate how much of a difference this community has made to me over the years. While many of my important memories have been previously shared on my 10 year celebration journal, (please disregard the huge, bold links on my older CSS), I take pride in my "adventures" here, and am beyond thankful for all of them. While this journal will not be as image extensive as my previous journal features, I did want to focus on some positive moments from my 15 years, while also highlighting a few new things that have brought me joy on DeviantART. :rose: Starting the relevant mental health awareness group, @GuidingLightProject with someone I am still honored to have been selected to work with, the dearest

With Love From Your Faithful Servant,
