midnight's calling
They yearned to dance in the moonlight,
to chant their benedictions in the glorious dark,
to worship fire and sky and earth’s matriarch.
Puritans descended, without a drop of insight,
preaching hate, slander and fear
and hunted so-called demons into eternal midnight. 
Remembered in Salem, a witches hallmark,
they yearned to dance in the moonlight.

It's as though it were a hip that joined us,
set its movement to the metronome
of our tosses and turns,
an early hour stroll
conjuring a somnambulist roam
of the other half of us
turning the bend like the trail of a train
massaging themselves back into the other
as if the pull
burrowed its weightlessness into the ground of thought,
the joint and socket
an invisibility that was never meant to be known,
to be named, or know of itself,
to bore its way into breakability, brittleness;
a hip
to stride,
to remain tethered in stillness,
but always remain afloat.
:iconmoonbeams:Moonbeams 3 2
gone - just not all gone
no longer
in 'this' cosmos
can our consciousness continue
after death;
that our libretto was atomic
and, all atoms are entangled,
commands our entity
harmonized, forever
with our universe.
we beings being quantum
means we linger
in the darkness,
lento losing light,
like a solo afterglow;
although, i'm pretty sure
...we'll never know.

fistfights rolling
in her mouth
and knock-out,
slap the bruises purple
lavender and nightshade
tucked beneath the pillow,
polyester sheath;
grudges bloom
where love sleeps

only by the brightest touches
are somethings turned
from fractures to gneiss
from maybes and mights and nights in to silence
knowing music's more pleasant a sound
than the crunches of eyelashes
as they're wished upon
(but wishes are ranted regardless
turn my lungs to vacuums
turn my tongue to perfume)
no one lets me build a bridge
from here to point nemo
so i make it mine
taste mortar coating the roof of my mouth
feel the poppy seeded sky replacing my sheets
the salt flooding my bedroom
the hallucinations don't refuse me
they let air escape in tiny bubbles
one by one
they watch me walk the bottom of the ocean
and talk my veins into radio waves
make me ricochet in trenches

Desperate to avoid his coffin,
seeking out a hellish goblin,
giving his soul in return,
knowing someday he will burn,
cauldron bubbles eerily,
screams that echo hauntingly;
desperate to avoid his coffin,
seeking out a hellish goblin.

you can find religion in the fall.
i think sometimes we find meaning in disbelieving.
we take our gods & break them—we let our hands fall
to our sides & take bigger strides to cover more ground.
we step in the leaves just to hear them crunch.
the bushes burn every autumn,
but we haven't heard god's voice in them for a while.
maybe we just haven't been listening.
our superstitions are hereditary—you avoid the cracks
in the sidewalk, because you hope that, one day,
your child will, too.
you do this until you are old enough to realize
that you don't have to avoid the fissures in the concrete
to keep your mother safe.
somehow, she's fine regardless of whether or not
your toes touch the edge of where the sidewalk ends
& the next segment begins.
you broke a mirror when you were ten,
but the bad luck should've worn off by now.
there are days you wonder if it's supposed to last seventy years
as opposed to seven.
there are days you decide that fables don't get to decide your fate,
& that you are more important than a

found among the rocks with coal dust in our Lungs
Let's destroy each other and call it magic.
and once the blood dries from your lips,
       I'll scrape out gravel from the Coughing fit
      and pave a road for our foreseen nuclear winter.
We'll build our caskets out of Limestone,  
  pretending that someone will miss us.
carving variscite into the cuff links,
               (because my wrists could use some healing)
praying to the stone maker that they never call this turquoise.
the salt will dehydrate us, the cave-ins keep on coming,
my respiratory's failing

I want to rip every inch of blue road mapped out on my skin
Every trail taken has lead me here
Has made me this
Has left me aching and desperate
Who will travel along this broken trail with me
I am alone as I have ever and will ever be
More than ever
The road begs to be blotted out and remapped in red ink
Who am I to deny a traveler's destiny
Who am I
:iconhfeather53:Hfeather53 1 1
You want to be
hollowed out:
your intestines uncurled
and laid aside;
your lungs deflated,
never again to fail
to catch a breath;
and your heart,
only good for hurting anyway,
ripped free while beating still.
Unless the fit's too tight,
you'd leave the ribs;
imperfectly, they have a job
still to do.
You've measured.  With your innards gone,
there's room for her.

worries entombed.
together we'll weave
earth and heaven alike.
here, with polaris

and the milky way spooling

what does it take to kill a part of me?
if i burnt my identity into my skin,
would you still love me?
there's a fine line between shivering
         [and shattering]
from the flittering fingers of the wind or
the dark depths of my mind telling me the truth.
[will you tell me the truth?]
i'm becoming constricted inside
this cage,
         this weight,
                          this -
i'm trapped inside of myself.
the key slipped between the gaps of one thought
and the next - dissolving into darkness.
        [i'm reaching for it
           but i'm afraid i'll dissolve along with it.]
i'm stuck halfway between
wanting to be perfect and wishing i could just
release my heart in the way it is comfortable with.
         [i'm caught halfway between you and me.]
i'm trying to lie to myself,
but the iridescent images keep surfacing out of the dark
:icona-nothing-girl:a-nothing-girl 10 6
pink lips, glossed
with shimmer, leave
tiny stains of indiscretion,
loud as bells chiming
the hour. Coy laughter
ripples like minnows
in a too-small pond, choked
with brackish, stale water.
She's sweet and rough,
granulated sugar against
his tongue, lingering,
even as he kisses his wife

To the dearest, lovely LadyLincoln you give so much, purely out of the kindness of your heart. If I could I'd sing love and praises from the highest point I could reach! You've helped so many. Darling dearheart, words cannot accurately express how precious you are to us.” - Anonymous, 3/1/2017

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.

Needing Support or Know Someone Who Does?

I am keeping a Prayer Support Log. If you or anyone else you feel at any time needs a boost of support, a hug, or to be reminded how loved and appreciated he or she is, then by all means – send me a note and I will include them on the log and be more than happy to send a kind word or two their way.

Longing For Spring
