Each day

My voice, my voice Hesitates, falters In the day to day Broken, mute, Muffled. Each day, I tell myself, Is speaking practice. Each day, I flex and tone My injured soul muscle. I try not to hate the stutter, Self-deprecation, Stiffness, timid silence. Trauma is like a stroke To the soul, Cutting off the flow Of life to vital Parts. After a stroke, many seek To relearn Speech, writing, walking, As best they're able. So too with trauma. We relearn How to stand tall In body and soul, Speak without inhibition, And face life unflinching. Each day, I tell myself, Is speaking practice.

Ignition

Ignition Those dreams are back Growing more intense Surging from the black Devouring every sense I'm feeling it again That river of despair Frozen waters of pain Become too much to bear I saw you in my sleep That world of delusion I only wake and weep At my pathetic illusion Your shape faded away Left clouds of rejection There's no time to say Farewell to perfection Sitting in my empty bed In lonely morning light No visions in my head Shadows of the night Murdered by the dawn The cold break of day With emotions reborn It's upon me they prey I can feel the fires Sense the rising smoke My pointless desires The words

3:28am

The waters are grey, murky, the currents hate the girl with dark complexion—US Marine to the rescue, but he holds her too close, too close, tainting her purity in the eyes of her people and she cries, she cries; Meanwhile I swim at ease, with itsy-bitsy eels curling to my fingers; Somehow I know, somehow I know the lifejacket I wear won't be enough —a sense of threat unexplained, looming, lurking; 'Get out of the water!' But though there are lines and lines of trees, there is no shore, there is no shore

The Night - Part One

The Night - Part One 100 years ago, The District was devastated by an unknown force, leaving only the empty shell of the city behind. Battered and torn skyscrapers lay strewn amidst ruined factories, industrial complexes, warehouses and residential apartments.There was no life in the still chaos that lay between The Rifts, great gashes in the landscape 5 miles apart, 10 miles deep and 50 miles long. Water used to occupy these rifts, but that which supplied the city for so long had since dried up. On the other side of the Rift's once verdant plains were now barren rockscapes. Nothing lived here; not anymore. When the disaster came, those in

When They Began To Ice Over

“What are you making, honey?” Vince heard her approaching without looking up. He tried to dislodge tiny clumps of snow fused to his mittens. That failed. He soon gave up extracting them and slapped the ground instead. “A snowman,” Vince said. His mouth twisted in the annoyance of a perfectionist. His mother became silent for several seconds, and hovered behind him. “Vincent.” “What?” The boy looked up. Fat falling snowflakes snagged and melted in his dark lashes. She just scowled. “Whoa, hey there.” His dad jogged up to them. “Nice reindeer, bud. Those antlers look a lit

The DeviantArt Writers Questionnaire 2015

1. How long have you been a member of DeviantArt, and for how long have you been writing? If you don't write what realm of art do you work in? I have been a member of DeviantArt for about a year despite being on the site years before. I've been writing for 7-8 years now I think. 2. Why did you become a writer? Is your reason to write the same now as it was then? I didn't really think about becoming a writer. It was more of something that I really enjoyed doing but I think it has grown into something more now. I have always enjoyed using my imagination to visualize different words and characters in situations and rather than just being a hob
