Blank Stare

Blank Stare

No emotion or feeling, head feels it reeling
The emptiness overbearing, soul it is tearing,
Emotions of sadness, devoid of gladness
Gloom and despair, no feeling of care
Deep hole am falling, darkness is calling
The trap it does snare, shown with my blank stare

Haven’t written much here

I haven’t been writing much here as I continue to work on my book. It is a mystery/supernatural story and it is becoming consuming but might take a break shortly and write some short stories and poetry. I have discovered that writing a book, not that it should have been a surprise, is a lot more work than I thought. I thought I could just write and the story would come to me and write on the fly like my poetry, but that has not been the case and research and outlines are definitely a necessity.

I have started following a few more blogs on writing as well as joining some sites and groups that can help me learn the process. I am learning to really enjoy the story telling portion and developing characters.

I have not forgotten my first art of poetry but am really starting to enjoy the challenge of writing a book and creating these characters that people, hopefully, will enjoy learning about.

It’s Real

It’s Real

Not doing good today, feel down
In emotions I drown
Sadness and tired seem the same
Depressions weary game
No motivation
No passion
No sense of being
Darkness only seeing
No control of how I feel
Yes, depression it is real

Little Writing Here

I haven’t post much here today since I started working on my book, which I decided was going to be a short story and possibly a 3 part series of short stories. The story itself is about 6600 words and 11 chapters. I know short stories are about 5000-10000 words so I know it fits into the category in word length just hope it is complete enough. I know it is a pretty rough draft that took me about 11 days to write so I will be doing some rewriting tomorrow as well as outlining the 2nd short story, does that count as a book…lol.

I think this was a good start to writing more and gave me a good idea of what it takes to write a novella or novel, which would definitely take a lot more work with the same basics. I wrote it free form and wrote as the ideas came to me so we will see how the proofread goes by my beta reader, she doesn’t know she is that yet…lol.

Small Moment

Small Moment

Her head in his lap
stroking hair gently
Tender touches
Soft touches
Seeing her eyes, the eyes that drew him in
Pools for which he could drown
Gently push the hair from her eyes
Gathering her gentle sighs
A smile appeared upon his face
Both hearts do race
Give a gentle forehead kiss
This moment so soft and tender
A small moment of bliss

Life’s Maze

Life’s Maze

Wandering, going this way and that
Left, wait right
Indecision sets in
Where have I been?
The exit must be here
Or maybe it’s there
Is the destination worth the effort?
Finding the way, where should I go?
life’s crazy maze
Causes a maddening craze

An Apology (Thoughts)

I don’t know if this is really an apology but I still feel as though I should say I’m sorry to all the writers that follow my blog and comment or like what I blog, yet I haven’t taken the time to read their work.

Im trying to do a better job of reading more of the wonderful piece written here and great art created and I appreciate everyone of you.

Vacant

Vacant

Vacant feelings, dark eyes void of human emotion, feeling lost no direction. The reflection I see stares back at me, how to overcome, there seems no way as demons within fight on this dreary dark day.
