said the dirt to the garden
despite this darkness
wild flower's blooming's blinding
no vision more brave
bending not broken

I think it might be a crush
but he makes dandelions grow in between sidewalk cracks
And springs metal prongs in the air pockets of my bones.
Someone that puts a lightheadedness in my heart
and a marathon icy in my chest when he smiles.
Even now with blurred vision memory
I stall like internet dial up
at a closed mouth upturn,
sending 18-wheeler thoughts into
 pile drive territory.
He's a fatalistic crash to my
 crosswalk feelings

Midnight Mass
Soprano and bass crescendo – voices worshipping through song,
Angels descending upon Earth, inviting the world to sing along –
Calling everyone big and small – to share their love so deep and strong.
As angels sing throughout the night, praise fills every willing ear.
The final rays of sunlight fade – piercing the stained glass window –
As darkness settles in the pews, hundreds of candles begin to glow;
As gentle flames dance and burn, white candle wax begins to flow.
The candles light the path; angels follow the lights all the way here.

Just One More Kiss
More kiss –
Maybe more –
Before I go;
I need one last kiss to savor later.
I hate leaving, but if I must, give me
The loving warmth
Of your lips
To soothe
The soft,
Of your unyielding love and I’ll give mine.
Our impassioned embrace thrills my young heart;
I can hear it –
Can you, too? –
Are loved,
You are all
I ever need
To leave Earth in a flight of happiness!
Just one more – or two – or three – more kisses
To get me home,
As I walk

DFC 2018: 13. Dear Jo
May your spirit fly with angels,
May it reach the greatest heights,
May you watch us all from Heaven,
Kissed by rays of golden light,
Dear Jo, may love and wonder hold your soul.

I can feel the sun burn me as I turn towards her. She burns my face, my arms and my neck without showing me any mercy.
“That’s just the way things are,” her voice sounds in my mind.
I’ve always thought myself to be in a fairy tale when really all this is, is a horror story. She advised me to leave a long time ago but I never listened. I thought reciting the same words over and over would be good enough to keep me out of harm’s way but it isn’t. She was once was the sun but now she can’t protect me anymore. She left me alone, abandoned and aching. I should’ve gone to meet the ocean but I was afraid of its outstretched talons getting close to me and so I backed away, right into her line of fire as she exploded and threw a rainstorm of burning ashes all over me. I expected her to be the easy way out when all she was was a dangerous force whose light pulled me into ominous darkness.
I try to move away from the heat but my feet won’t mov

Take Me Away
Travelling night train,
please, take my last thoughts with you
   up into moondust —
   Steal them like the blowing wind,
   lift away what could not be.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 48 2
I want to restructure us
like thoughts and CBT.
I want us to be simple enough
to fit into diagrams and boxes,
descriptions of distortions
and a step-by-step guide.
You mistake me: there is love here.
There is so much goddamn(ed) love here.
Sometimes I forget
      [I have love here, and I try and find it; "mother"].
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever stop. 
I don’t know how to release
the pressure building behind my eyes,
pulsing like the memory of bruises
from your palms, tears bleeding in(to) silence.
Time has stretched us out,
laid us flat like fresh slates.
You mistake me: history still lives here.
Time may have smoothed the scar
you gave my back, but the heart heals slowly,
Let it weather us
into approachable pieces,
small enough
for me to swallow.

Daughter of Calypso
She said, I miss the sea.
I said, I will write you songs about the ocean.
Still, I only saw waves in her eyes
while mine housed stars.
I said, I love you,
and she held shells to her ears.
I watched her face while
she watched the water -
there was more joy there
than I had ever seen
when our eyes had met.
The water making love to the sand -
that was all the lovemaking she cared about.
She didn’t want to touch unless
it wrinkled her fingers.
I’m sorry if I tasted worse than brine.
I said, you cheat on me with the ocean,
but she didn’t hear.
Of all the turbulence I had expected,
I never thought she could love the sea
more than she could love me.
:iconguineveretogwen:GuinevereToGwen 5 6
it always has been
that when you open your arms
before you
spread rolling clover fields
       and orchards
       my heart’s stone cottage
       and ash-spilled hearth
it always has been
that you promise honey
and yet all that lies behind you
      is salted earth

A Prayer for the Giver
To you who seeks never your own gain, but the nourishment of others,
I ask for the same blessings you offer each and every day 
To come full circle as all things should.
It would be easy for you to see others let out their frustration and pain,
See it as their problems alone, and resume what you were doing.
Because you never conform to that, because you always take that time
To let a total stranger know that things will be alright,
You show that your interest is not in following the ways of most
But walking down your own path and offering others 
The chance to journey along it with you.
This is a world where division and animosity often run rampant.
It can be exhausting to see these negative forces spread all over
The internet, the television waves and the real world.
Yet here you are, refusing to let them change who you are,
Determined to never stray from your ideals.
No matter how much negativity the world continues to produce,
No matter how easy it can feel to question one
:iconshining-scribe:Shining-Scribe 7 11
Change of Heart
To come to this, I know not how,
but I shall make amends to you;
you were in want and this I knew,
so here I pledge my solemn vow:
Abandoned in your time of need,
my back I turned, refused to see
that you required aid from me—
the blame, I take, as now you lead
far into danger on your own
determined to fight all alone,
yet you shall never be without
this prideful, humbled knight devout;
my strength of sword and shield I loan,
as for my heart, where love was sown.
:icononewiththestars:OneWithTheStars 6 3
hope and hurting
It's not going to be the same this year
now that she's gone away
to bask in heaven's golden rays,
making it so hard to have any cheer.
I want more than anything for her to appear,
more than Santa, or snow or rides in a sleigh
drowning in grief, even when I pray
for the person I held incredibly dear.
It's winter now and we're making do
we're still hurting, yes that's true
but your memories keep us smiling
the fact that you're gone, forever beguiling
hope and love and family seeing us through
breathe easy now Mimi, we will always miss you.

Poems for My Uncle Dan
1. Sister
my mother is ten
and her brother
shows her how to build
a bike from spare parts
their hands move together
-circles rippling
through an open pond
later they would
test the hours against
a setting sun
wheels turning
long shadows
in the fading light
2. Family
four daughters
first the dawn
and then the sun
four sisters

-my uncle
in the middle
palms open
holding life
like water
in the shape
of his hands
3. Girlfriend
they meet
together in
another night
his hand touches
the bare
skin of her shoulder
the road follows
stretching blind
on both sides
she loves him
and she
4. Death
how does
this start?
with the car sputtering?
stuttered breath
that it still
had too far
left to drive?
his girlfriend watches
her eyes follow
his hand as
it opens the door
he steps
growing headlights blossom
bringing a death
that he does not see
5. Girlfriend on a Bus
she is
she watches
the length
of the road
pass by again
and she thinks
to herself

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.


Would you like to take part in a special New Years project?  I am looking to create a DeviantART yearbook journal feature.  I'd like to add a quote regarding us, perhaps any memories we've shared, a photo of you, some artwork, or literature.  If you want to take part, please send me a note to learn more.  I would like to have the feature posted on January 1st.

I have also been collecting Deviant IDs here, if you'd like to add yours. (Serious quality, non-snapchat photos only, please.)

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

Jenene. Writer. Aspiring to Inspire
past the end of this cold winter,
until the spring comes again,
until the flowers bloom again
stay there a little longer, stay there
