Dreamers

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

Wet books

Wet Booksfantasy-2912873_1280

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
stepping in
door closed behind
I’ll have no part that whisper left my mouth
slipping to the ground
I’ll have no part.

New Project, New England Authors

I’ve started compiling a list of Famous Writers from New England!¬†

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.

Travel Ideas

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!

Dear Writer,

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. ūüôā

Sincerely,
Sasch

P.S.
I hope to memorize your stuff over time

Favorite Bloggers of all time

My all time favorite blogger is S.K. Nicholas at Myredabyss.com. s.k.

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.¬†cristian

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 .¬†scifibuddha

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.

When Feelings Collide with Words

dadaepo-beach-2826172_1280

She came And She went
She Left. She never Said Goodbye
I Meeean
I Said It To Her From Behind
But With Her Back Turned To Me
I Didn’t Have Much Confidence
That We Would Meet Again
Like If I Got To Say It To Her
While Looking In Her Eyes
And I’m Just Going Off My Senses
But Something Tellin Me
My Last Kiss
Was Last Night
So I Had To Send This
And I Didn’t Want to Express This
Fearing I May Come off Desprate
But I Guess Ima Keep Speaking
She Came At A Tough Time
She Woke Me Up
When I Was With Her
I Found Breath To Keep Breathing
But Maybe Something Wasn’t True
Now I Guess I Could Keep Sleepin
Cuz Maybe The Answer Wasn’t You
So I Guess I Will Keep Dreaming
