The Once-Ardent Mermaid

The Once-Ardent Mermaid

My lady yearns to dwell amid the sea; From ocean floor, to sheltered cove, to bay, She'd lead the schools of fish in harmony And frolic with marine mustelidae. Instead, she hides on lonely isle, away-- Though fearless before maelstrom or typhoon-- Her heart's too filled with sorrow now to play. She fades away, much like the waning moon. I wish I could deliver her a boon; A gift of portent. Origin? Divine. Some arcane spell, perhaps an eldritch rune-- Whatever piece of magic helps her shine. Just like the goddess Amaterasu, Her radiance would light the world anew.

Lady of Twilight

What fey and eldritch powers she commands, The Raven Queen's fury personified; While sylvan creatures flock where'er she stands, What men have dared insult her have all cried: They're flayed alive-- such fools she won't abide. In truth, her charms are quite unparalleled. If any doubt her beauty, they have lied. By her voice, all bestial discord is quelled. Beneath her grace and magic, men are spelled And lured into her faerie otherworld A realm where fools and kings alike are felled By skin pale, eyes deep, rose lips; hair dark, curled. O goddess, fair, of passion and woodlands, Embrace this eager fool with tender hands.

The Long-Term Effects of Exposure to Sunshine

The Long-Term Effects of Exposure to Sunshine The time called dusk is a sweet reminder As the ebbing sun bathes the world in gold And fragrances of sun-warmed flowers Waft past, an olfactory procession I stand in awe of the glory and warmth Basking in this blissful serenity I am tenderly reminded of you Your light, my sunshine, brightens ev'rything Your playful kindness and gentle nature Enfold me willingly and give me hope While I'm not at your side I ache to feel This sunny warmth: of you held in my arms Your gentle heart is striving so brightly I hope you sense my harmony with you

Devious Journal Entry

Devious Journal Entry

Summer is here once again, so I may actually get around to post stuff, if I actually find any inspiration. My love life is... extremely complicated, right now. More or less, I don't know what I want, and even if I did, I don't know that I'd can bring myself to trust another person so much right now. Someone has confessed to me, recently, but... there's a history and relationship in play with them that means I view her more as a close friend than a potential partner. I've tried to open myself up to the possibility, but... it's like forcing a puzzle piece into someplace it doesn't belong. It just doesn't feel right. I keep wondering if maybe i

School and life continue onward.

School and life continue onward.

Classes are going well at university, and I'm actually looking forward to the semester. I just need to stay focused and not procrastinate. Luckily, everyone where I'm going is pretty smart, and there an atmosphere of... academic camaraderie that's very bolstering. I think it was intimidating at first mainly because of not knowing what to expect, but I'm settling into it. I don't seem to have as much free time, now, but in a way I'm glad. Much of my free time was spent wastefully, leading up to the semester, and investing my time into study groups is an entirely different proposition, now that everyone I interact with is amply intelligent. I
