And in the turbulence of blue and gray,

fall in love with me, darling
i will take you to the movies just so i can
hold your hand in the dark, 
i will kiss every beautiful freckle on your body,
and when your eyes trace over scars you will see
my lips there instead
i will catch you with words and tattered hands
(because i've been through pain, love, you can
touch my marks if you'd like)
i am the twilight drizzle that washes your tears away
and there are no storms named after me.
:iconcalliopen:calliopen 26 5
storm clouds empty their
pockets on the land below;
calling forth new life.
Sometimes you are not
the hero in the story
of your tragic life.
All things fade with time;
Sometimes we perish
long before we should.
The fading twilight
gives way to ocher and gold;
Prelude to the night.

-Okay, breathe-
In and out, right?
Just one in...
...then one out.
Ignore the slightly blurred lines.
Forget the dark spots threatening to invade my line of sight.
-I don't know how-
My chest-it feels so tight.
My lungs are too confined.
Resist the urge to undress.
It never really helps.
And yet, my hands tug at my shirt.
They grasp the fabric over my breasts.
-Some one save me-
My mouth gaps open.
I can feel the air choking in my throat.
The sound is heavy all around me.
Maybe if I close my eyes...
Looking at the darkness inside my own mind.
The small silver splashes of light- sparkles.
-It's crawling inside-
-Clawing, clawing to be free-
Quiet cannot invade this place I'm in.
I've lost my map to Wonderland.
The loudness surrounds, clanking.
Like the sound of a bell tower...
It rings and tolls the passing.
Time is forgotten.

-Give me silence-
Hot, wet and salty-

In Which I Tell Myself To (1) Survive
2.     Do not choke yourself with
        the name of a murderer
        around your neck.
        Instead, let it in.
        Give it the chance to testify,
        because more than likely:
        it will understand.
        It will tell you we all must
        kill something which we love.
        But do not let it give you its name:
        you, white rabbit girl, grow
        too attached (too fast),
        and you do not yet know
        the angle at which to break
        snowcapped knuckles into
        letting go.
3.     Open your chest like

Green Nocturne
play with shadows
blending into one,
   shape shifting
   while the wind blows,
   moon lifts
   in silver glory,
her children winking
in indigo depths,
nature seems
to reveal its secrets
softly to my ears –
   such a beautiful
   green nocturne.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 21 11
The moon is a cold white disc tonight
yet underneath, you and I
feel warm
but small,
insignificant beneath the blackness of dreams.
We talk about work and sex
and math,
making promises unkept.
We base the moment on
each other,
the blur of tears,
the heaviness of our souls
and the stars that swathe in the black
above us.
I close my eyes,
and we're the shadows on the moon
unfurling evermore.

Everything That I Learned From You
I.  Care too much.  That's what you're afraid of, right?  That when he goes to sleep and all you want to do is touch his hand to remind yourself he's real (for the moment)—you're in too deep.  You care too much.  You are clinging too tightly and your concern will strangle him.  You think that if you tell him how much you love his eyes or you stare too long at his mouth when he talks or fold yourself around him as he sleeps he will leave because the love you put on him is too heavy.  But care about him anyway.  Love and kindness are too far last in this world.  If he pushes you away as you cradle his head in your arms then he does not understand you.  Love too much and if he doesn't love enough, leave him.  Don't be afraid of caring.  That's when you become afraid of being cared for.
II.  Tell him he's beautiful.  Remind him that his hands are the only ones you want to hold.  Compliment him whenever you can

It's That Lincoln Spirit

I Support...

Thank you PoetryOD :heart:


What Others Have to Say...

"I don't know if you have any idea of how much the true magnitude of your writing does affect people. I look so forward to your journals. I always pray for your mom. Your attitude also has a big affect on me. You are a strong woman, like your mom and able to encourage others around you, even when you feel down yourself. So, let me say this: you have made a lasting impression. You have already made your ripples on my pond called life. I don't know of a stronger, more lovely and poised woman I desire to call my friend. I am trying to point my star more towards yours, because of your elegance, grace and charm. I want to be more like that. Thank you for being my standard."


"You are one of the most amazing women I have ever met only because you're so dedicated to EVERYTHING you do! It is inspiring. And you better never forget it. Because you are amazing."


"I really appreciate your support. Always have. You are one of those people that are always there, always caring, always noticing, and always replying - simply always. You are a constant cornerstone here, and will probably always be the cornerstone in whatever it is you touch. You just have that in you. There's also a very deep level of kindness in the way you do things. And, I think it's time we all should admit to ourselves that you are DA's Lincoln. It just seems fitting. I wanted to thank you for the support and friendship, it means a lot to me, you are being who you are and it is enough of a gift. Keep being true to yourself and keep being strong."


"The time, effort and love Jenene puts into the community is apparent at every turn. She is always there providing love and support to deviants in need, whether it be personal or professional, and she continually touches and affects so many people on a daily basis. Her devotion to the literature community is inspiring and so valued, and she continually dedicates her journals to every literature happening in the vast DeviantART community. Her kindness, selflessness and empathy for others make her the most sincere person I have ever encountered. She uses DeviantART to reach out to others and make a difference, and her voice is one that is highly well regarded and respected. Outside of DeviantART, she works in an emergency room, making a difference every single day."


"There is a level of emotional strength that is expected of an artist, being able to take every blow that is thrown and roll with the punches. Jenene takes those punches without flinching and still offers a shoulder to anyone who needs it, regardless of all else. You won't find a bigger heart around these parts."


"Jenene, I think you are the one person everyone in the lit-community knows, and the world would be poorer without you. The Queen of Literature would be the perfect name for you in my own humble opinion, as you are there for anyone with a kind word or a compliment. Your writing is sincere and formidable, and your warm heart the source of so many wonderful things happening on this website, from features to the detailed lit-updates throughout this tight band of writers. For all of this, I can only say: Thank you for being here."


"I believe Jenene's deep affinity for Abraham Lincoln stems from something far more profound than a simple enthusiasm for history. I think she sees in Lincoln a kindred soul. She too holds a great love for words. She too holds her ideals and those she loves above herself, and it informs her every deed and thought. She too is blessed with a strength of character that enables her to push on with what is most important even when she is ill-used by life and people. Even though she may feel alone during the darkest times of her life, she most definitely is not. I and many, many other people feel that we are better for knowing her."


"Jenene is a powerful deviant with a giant heart. She is always caring and writes amazing journals that inspire and warm everyone who reads them. She is selfless, strong, and has an amazing attitude. Lincoln would be truly proud of her, as all of us are!"


"[As a writer] from a poem of one stanza to a prose piece of several paragraphs, Jenene is inspired from the intensity of that little understood emotion called love to craft her work. Her sentences, written with powerful imagery among other literary features, are read with the heart as much as with the eyes. From one piece to the next, her sincere and intimate expressions in her memoirs will bring tears to the eyes while her tender romantic works will compel you to think again about love and passion, whether you believe in it or not."


"Dearest Jenene, I have always admired you, and I always will, with your generosity, spirit, drive, compassion and love. There has never been a time where you haven't made me love you a little more with your endless love and your hope is truly a wondrous thing. You have such a beautiful, beautiful way with words and never cease to make me smile. You have such a gorgeous heart, filled with love. ♥."


"I don't have a lot of heroes outside of my parents. As a matter of fact, none are. But if there's anyone that has gotten any closer to becoming one it is you, Jenene. You are one of my deviantART heroes, you beautiful soul. I admire and respect you like no one else on this site for all of the love you consistently show everyone. Your altruistic nature is unparalleled, your artistic ingenuity is astounding, and you are simply one of the most beautiful souls I have ever encountered here on this fantastic site. Thank you for all that you do, Jenene. For me and for everyone. I love you so much."


"Jenene is a selfless individual who always shows you just how much you are valued - as an artist, as a person, as somebody. She'll leave you a random note, or a random heart and for the rest of that day, you can't help but smile. The DeviantART community is not only blessed to have her among us, but we are inspired to follow in her footsteps as a humble artist who is giving, warm and genuine."


"To the lovely LadyLincoln, you are nothing short of wonderful. I love all your work to pieces. Beautiful poetic words that touch my heart to the core. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Some of your works have gotten me through tough times. This is a reminder that you are such a sweet soul and that you inspire, comfort and encourage many artists in everything you do.

Thank you a million times over. ❤"


"Jenene is an inspiration -- patient and caring, everything I would like to be but am just not on her level. She gives me something to shoot for, no doubt. The star she sits atop is the brightest of all."


"I've always admired you from afar. It's only been in this past year, or months rather, that I've attempted to shed my shyness and bridge the gap. You are my idol, my mentor who didn't know she was mentoring. I find that the dA community is a far better place with you in it. I also find that the world would be silent....if you weren't around. I've seen so many people bow down to the point of not acknowledging the 'bad' things in the world. They stay in their holes, clutching teddy-bears of comfort, until nothing but the naivety and good fortune surrounds them. They don't want to stand amidst the conflict of violence, disease, poverty, among so many other things. They don't want to lend a hand of support or raise their voice about the issues. You, you stand tall. You do what is in your power to raise awareness and give support to those who need it. I am truly beside myself when I think of all the things you do. I can only aspire to follow in your footsteps. To make a change. To not just worry about myself and minor ordeals, but to look at the bigger picture.

You are an inspiration.
You are beautiful.
You are strong.
You are amazing.
You are a blessing."

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.
