Treasured Literature

I loved you--
                   at least, as much a desert can love the rain:
         begging for relief from the torrid sun
         and knowing the flood would still hurt the same
:iconlycaenyx:Lycaenyx 11 2
Forever Bound
The tolls from the great bells compellingly resound,
singing a joyful melody,
as I walk down the aisle, face veiled and full-gowned;
my heart joins in the rhapsody
to harmonize with your soul-song, echo around,
and your smile brightens instantly,
your light shining radiantly
while our hearts embrace the tether that has them bound.
With tender warmth, you beckon me
to come forth, stand with you freely
before those gathered with us upon hallowed ground,
and express our love openly;
we so pledge to each other promises profound—
forever, darling, faithfully…
You are the most precious treasure that I have found.

Colours of Morning
A misty curtain
hides the colours of morning —
   We await the sun,
   Soft touch of sunlight
   caresses roof’s edge —
      Warm pigments blossom

mission drift
you say it softly, like
i have cometed off somewhere
like the milky light you stretch me to
is just beyond my reach
and maybe it is, and maybe i am:
you swing the solar system in
but i am only really slung
around the sun of you

mute elation
drum my fingers
harsh upon my thigh;
patience is a curse
for those that like the taste
of their own
i bite my serpent tongue
and beg to be
drunk, my nails create
a trail of torn skin
and wounds
eternity succumbs
to the witness
of my crossed scars.

pen to skin
choke up a new star.
flailing is so
cinematic; let sharp
cursive cover you
in worshiped spittle.
words must be buried
in your brittle ruins,
you catastrophe. be leveled
that language might
spill from your
gaping wounds.
in no little amount,
be purged. insurgency
does not become the
adored. torture
yourself for millennia
if a single tome
is your just
if you breathe,
re-word your failure
with blooms and blossoms;
let loose your awesome
dispatching. all the world
loves a passion
and no one
will mourn
your passing.
:icongliitchlord:gliitchlord 9 0
well i will have to start sparks in:
lunging from bed by the pointe-toe
crafting each crater out of cool skin
stringing these tight shoulders down.
i can battle with a breath again.
show my body what it’s built for
ask it kindly to stretch out, then,
if it means each moment of the light,
if we know we want to win.
but it’s a might gone mountained
every time we both begin
the cindered work of braving up.
i can nip this at the spine-spin
if i’m cornered by the corpus
but that doesn’t mean it listens
as it tips out at the peak:
when the fierceness lasts a frisson
it’s a wonder i can speak.
:iconpeaseblossoms:peaseblossoms 13 4
watchman artifice
owls shift
bluish in pale might,
stretched along thin windows
waking from time, and human
watching thread ends fray
and labor in connecting
soul to body, mind to matter
heart to heartbeat (love to lover)
and the window keeps its portion
of light within the glass,
a seeing tax exacted;
time takes a toll
even once transcended
threads are only fibers
intertwined, imagined
by imperfect human avatars
love is stretched, pale
bluish and thin
and wrapped, fraying,
around the might of matter
disconnected from soul

Sleepless Nights
The night creeps softly, lending me no comfort
I hear the far-off traffic noises muted by the wind
They call like the reminder of the distant past
Whose nightmares have paraded through my heart
In my space there is a disconcerting stillness echoing
My heart readily recognizes the pain it finds within
I am without a noble calling bringing me to sleep
Nor do I find a tatter of solace to cling to me
:iconasahi-taichou:Asahi-Taichou 8 11
To my lover, when we meet
I want my name
to fill the sigh
between your every heartbeat.
I want out kiss
to fill your veins
and warm your coldest darkness.
I want to count your freckles
and kiss you where the gods
once blessed your saintly flesh.
I want to hold you close
and spin you out in dance
and never let you go.
Our soft entwining fingers,
your gentle flowing hair,
the breezes in your smile,
the sunbeams in your eyes,
and every waking moment spent with you.
:iconbaronautumn:BaronAutumn 3 6
Anatomy of a Goodbye
there was the misunderstanding
in a moment of need.
You felt
like an imposition
and shared less of yourself
moving forward,
but busy as she was,
she noticed your withdrawal.
there was the misunderstanding
when she assumed the worst,
as if she'd forgotten
who you were,
what you stood for,
and what you meant to her.
For the sake of preservation,
together you compromised
and tried to mend
the jagged lips of that wound,
but it was never the same.
Over time,
you unfollowed the posts
that showed her surrounded
and left you alone.
You shelved any reminders
of your friendship
so they'd be within reach
but out of the way.
That summer you wrote, despite knowing
she could never
bear to read your words,
about cutting down trees
that in previous poems
had stood tall.
This summer,
she wrote about another friend
who refused to hear her side
and turned her pain against her.
You felt for her,
but you couldn't help thinking
she'd missed the parallel.
You left quietly,
jagged lips sealed and
:iconhopeburnsblue:hopeburnsblue 5 1
the dog-days have come
and hounded me with
curled tongues and wicked eyes.
they have lain on the ceilings of
humid rooms and sweated out a balm
of indecision, snarling at my faltering
steps, gnashing at my heels that dare demand
fresh air and space to decide
where they go from here.
the hounds of summer have come early
this year, pressing hot against my legs
as the city is plagued with heat and
restlessness. the museums stir with the
winds of desert climes, sarcophagi sighing
with the last breathes of locust swarms and
harsh sunlight. the parks lay flat and bleached,
grass and concrete singing in unison pleading
for rain. it is a constant chorus, the wish
for rainfall, so desperate that the city
would see softness in thunderstorms, grace
in the violence and tumult of a summer rainstorm.
but those dogs won’t let me be.
they howl through the night while
I seek coolness from open windows
and evening breezes. they bite at my hands
as I swat them away, pacing through walls of
stiff he

melody of lamps
from the comfort of your color house
you star to me, i feel it
all the way to streetlights flitting
on the front panes of my own
so i take it in my teeth
to taste the light while i am dreaming
from your breaths i build my own breaths
from your glow i make a home
(what about it being hungry open-
coated in the moonlight when i
love you when you tell me you will
listen if you ask me for a poem so
we promise with the tickets pressed
like silver in our hands.)

Sleep evades my battered bones
Silence, echoing deep within my veins;
It numbs me slowly, tip to toe, consuming me up to my eyes

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

Jenene. Writer. Aspiring to Inspire

until the flowers bloom again
stay there a little longer, stay there
