My Podcast

Happy Friday everyone!

No real reason for the post today other than to remind anyone interested that I have a podcast and I love to feature up and coming poets. If you have poems that are based in the genre of love (romance, drama, unrequited love, bitterness, self love, anger, passion, etc) please feel free to send it my way. I will leave my email below in this post along with a link for the podcast so you can check it out!

By the way if you don’t want to be interviewed but you don’t mind me reading some of your work and talking about it please email me and we can even do that. Anyway, I look forward to hear from you!

The Great Fall

Once it was a beacon of light,

This shining hill dressed as a white knight.

Now it only brings hate,

Laying prone on the ground, and heavy as a freight.

I find myself mystified,

maybe naive, and wide-eyed as a victorian bride.

How far did we backslide?

When did I lose my greatest ally?

The contradictions are clear,

yet we still clamor and believe all because of fear.

I stand here,

Waiting, helpless, praying that you’ll appear.

Isn’t that right dear?

Won’t you loan me a few of your tears?

You see I’ve ran out,

When humanity chose the coward’s way and took the bailout.

There are no rebels here.

They lament, yet still adhere.

It’s troubling to see this clear!

Maybe it’s too soon,

Maybe it’s too late,

But soon you’ll see the weight,

compliances that morphed into mandates.

Shaved

It was freeing, really.

Taking away what once controlled me.

It was hard to fathom previously,

Now, I feel the stares and revel in it deviously.

Grim Reaper

…Came to collect.

Time was given.

Money was allotted.

Frivolity was limitless.

Now,

The moon was covered by the clouds.

The winds picked up from the east.

And rising from the ground, Death, suddenly appeared.

You were fascinated and terrified in equal measure.

But what more could you do?

This day had already been predicted to you.

Undeniably Yours

Hey everyone!

I made my novella, “Undeniably Yours,” available on Amazon for free this week only. I wrote it a while back. It’s only if you have Kindle Unlimited. I read so much, and I just adore Kindle Unlimited because I get to read whatever for only ten bucks a month. For readers it’s like a dream LOL. It’s also why I made mine available for it, because if I saw it was featured on KU I’d be thrilled.

Side note: KU said that I read a total of forty books in 2022. YAY! I’m going to shoot for one-hundred books read in 2023. What are your goals? Other than dropping like fifty pounds, reading, and traveling, I don’t have anything extravagant. (Or do I?)

That just took a turn.

Anyway, if you want to read it, please click here.

P.S. Poems will be back this week.

Two Books in One Month!

Hello everyone!

I’ve been so busy! But never fear I am still here. I pleased to announce that I will be putting out two books in the month of January. (God willing) If it has to go to February I’ll be okay with it, but for now I’m trying to be positive about everything. LOL. This will make seven books total. In three years I would have published three poetry books and four fiction books! I never thought I would be able to put out my own stuff but I’m so grateful that I can, and be self-published too through Amazon! I hope that I can entice you all to read my fiction book.

*I’ll post it here when it’s released.

My goal for 2023 is to continue writing. To continue expressing myself in the wonderful way of prose. My goal is to lose a little more weight, but not stress about it. My goal is to finally allow myself the chance to open up when it comes to love. I can admit that I’ve been a bit standoffish when even the idea is mentioned in my presence, but since I’m being honest I thought it best to start here. I love you all, and if I don’t post anymore this weekend, then I want to say Happy New Year!

Stay safe, and I love you all.
