“Abandoned Me”

As an enjoyable past time I collect pins of abandoned places. There is a certain, indescribable serenity when I look at those pictures. I used to think it was because of the story each picture spoke, of a previous life; of laughter and happiness that must have filled those places. I now realize though, that it is the ruined beauty of those abandoned places that connects to the ruination of me; my once happy, beautiful life now marred by time, by neglect… just like those abandoned places.

Time creates the pain.

My journey thus far…

  Did I have unrealistic expectations? Some would say I did. 
But a girl can dream and writers do write. 
  So whilst my debut novel Sans Espoir and my collection of poems 
Blank Canvas didn't make the impression or have the impact I had hoped
they would, I continue to pursue my- no not dream because it's 
already happened-,*** of being a writer and so I write.
  There's the reason why I continue: my dream was to be a writer- full stop. 
And whether book sales continue to crawl or pig fly threw the roof, I measure
my success by completion and not $$$. Each time I pen my heart on paper and 
complete the novel or poem I had set out to write, I am successful.
  I love writing and will continue to love it, live it, dream it- publish it.
So were my expectations unrealistic? No they weren't. I had expected and hoped 
to one day write and publish and have persons read my work- I'm living that,
dream?, no... reality!!!
 

We are Free

 

 

We are free

         you and me

and

    so we

         love

 

Amidst the chaos

    of the

world’s “Normality”

  we 

    are

         us

 

And in the span

   your wings let be

The wind takes

     it

      and soars

 

I smile at my

     love

      to love

and be loved
