You are a poet because of the way in which you document your life.
Don’t let them get you down
I know you probably supported them
and their dreams so much so that you lost yourself
And now that you’re reaching for the stars
it seems they are intentionally avoiding your endeavors
That the support you provided isn’t reciprocated
That’s ok cuz this is your fucking dream
Dream bigger since it’s just you
dream louder and longer
and don’t stop until you have everything you’ve ever wanted
just because they don’t have the courage to support you while you’re learning
doesn’t mean you’ll never be good enough
keep going keep digging
That smell of wet books and Chanel no 5
is no invitation
There are no arms open
stiff I freeze
Under my soles is the threshold
A cold door knob damp in my palm
Dead echoes haunt from behind
“Vanity!” they scream
A million hands reaching to save me from their sins
fingers grasping at my clothing
If only they would just listen
“hear me out!”
It’s no use their minds are with moons and times
sloshed together creating the great divide
“I’ll have no part!” I yell
door closed behind
I’ll have no part that whisper left my mouth
slipping to the ground
I’ll have no part.
Still working on the list. But this is what I have so far. I’m proud to be from New England and live where so many great writers have lived. Thought I’d make page to show off my home.
So if you don’t know this yet I’m a huge Roald Dahl Fan. (I mostly love Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.) While reading ” Story Teller: The Authorized Biography of Roald Dahl” I found that he has a museum in the UK! Visiting the Roald Dahl museum is officially on my bucket list. It’s located in Great Missenden which “was home to Roald Dahl for 36 years until his death in 1990. He wrote all of his children’s books and many of his adult short stories in the Writing Hut he had built in his garden. Many of Roald Dahl’s stories are based in and around the village.”
Not only do they have a museum, they also have a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory eye shadow palette!

Your words give me something to live for. I have plenty to live for, but your words get me out of bed when the world is weighing so heavy nothing else matters. I truly wish the best for you and when the best finds you (if it hasn’t yet) I hope you don’t lose yourself in it. And that we can continue to learn and grow together. 🙂
I hope to memorize your stuff over time
My all time favorite blogger is S.K. Nicholas at Myredabyss.com.
He just amazes me with his brain and creativity. His blog has grown and evolved along with him and it’s quite entertaining to watch. He has yet to bore me. I always feel my review of his blog will never be good enough. So I just like to share his link and tell everyone I love it. He has written two books A Journal for Damned Lovers I & II. You should check them out and buy them when your funds are replenished, you know, from all the holiday shopping.
The first blogger I’ve ever read religiously and still do is Cristian Mihai.
He writes inspirational blog posts, books, and shares his experiences on being a writer. I always learn something new from his posts. He is enlightening and inspiring and has improved my writing thought processes in so many ways. Sometimes I can even hear his advice in my head when I’m second guessing myself (which is quite often). He writes about real life content and uses his real life experiences to improve others artistry. None of that fluffy bullshit like “everything just magically landed in my lap.” He writes about the true struggles of being a writer. He has written a handful of books and I’m sure there are more to come. One of my favorites of his is Jazz. I couldn’t put it down. It’s about a writers journey including love, loss, and it’s great.
And last but not least I love Dirty Sci-Fi Buddha’s Musings .
He makes me think with every Musing post. And he’s really good at relating it all to writing and creating in general. He’s interesting, thought provoking, and always seems to keep me coming back for more. He wrote Echo volumes 1, 2, & 3. What I’ve read so far is action packed and quite entertaining.
