She was a lovely woman

when she was very young

her hair was soft and healthy

words quickly bounced off her tongue

 

Her lips were red as roses

her skin as fair as the rule of a good king

her shape was smooth and lively

her heart’s good showed in her being

 

But now that she has grown older

her heart is the color jade

her words cut and are more bitter

her face kept in the shade

 

She trusts no one anymore

and lives a lonely life

once she was young and married

once she was a happy wife

 

but the years went by

her husband died

her kids left and never came back

 

Everyone she ever helped

when she needed them,

turned their back

 

but there is something that she does love

a little creature, small in size

and when she calls out his name

he comes and stares into her eyes

 

this creature is her helper

a little friend that once came

and once he was in her life

he never left again

 

This creature is a black soul

his horns a twisted into claws

he keeps his size small

so that she would not fret at all

 

so this beautiful soul of a woman

grown bitter with the years

has no clue that her friend is a demon

as a cat he does appear

 

She is the guarded woman

and never again will be alone

for her and her demon cat make quite a happy home.

 

The Chirping Bird

One day a little chirping bird

said unto me

“Don’t you wish you could fly away

and be truly free?”

 

“My wings carry me away

to great distant lands

feeling the soft wind beneath them

doing as my mind commands.”

 

And I looked to the little bird

and a smile spread across my face

“Why yes I wish I could fly with you

to that special place.”

 

“The place where no one cries

and no one is in pain

the place where we can truly  love

every part of ourselves again.”

 

and as this bird and I talked

and the sun began to set

I felt my back moving

a pair of wings I did get.

 

With elated smile

and cheer escaping my mouth

I leapt to fly into the air

and circled round my house.

 

Now me and that bird keep flying

each and every day

to distant lands and sunsets

we fly so far away.

 

How did those wings grow, you ask?

Upon my back that day?

Well who am I, a chirping bird

to really and truly say?

 

This world is filled with magic

with things not yet known

so just close your eyes and leap into the air

your wings will carry you home.

 

 

First blog post

So as you can see this is my first blog post so I wanted to talk a little about myself and my blog.

I am a 20 year old college student. I am majoring in English Writing with a Publication Concentration and am minoring in Graphic Design at UNG. Writing is my passion and would love to become a published author one day. For hobbies I like to write, of course, as well as participate in a few LARP’s called Dagorhir and Nukelanta. I traveled the world with my family while I was growing up and have seen some amazing things.

This blog will be a place for me to publicly publish my poems and stories as well as posts on my every day life and different thoughts I have. It will be a way to get my writing out there and learn more about the writing community.

Thank you for reading and I hope you all enjoy my blog.
