my poem "he never one was for conversation" is in the new issue of Virginia State Universities literary magazine, a growing list of publications in colleges I wouldn't get accepted in to.

I need you most, soul. You should boast about it so because you're saved from that below. But I'm ashamed, my flesh will say, that you'd go and leave me this way. To burn to ash, dissolve to dust. My silver bones and gold will rust. The worms will eat my skin as I lay silent in the grave. The sky not looking down upon me now. Have it nothing for the ground? No rain to wash the dirt away. Soul, I can cry but I can't pray. My debt, so heavy; You forgot you dwelled in me. Now I'm to rot. I haven't worth where I belong, beneath the earth. Left me alone. Attempted flights, your words replay. I will not listen, not today. Answer me this, but can you fly? You selfish soul, and I should die? Don't cry to me, don't call my name. And when you fail, fall in the flame. #salvation #brokenmen #thelighthouse #poems #poets #poetry #poetrygram #poetssociety #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #writing #writers #poetsociety #deeptruths #pains #soul #freedom #death #life #poetry

#Repost @purely_palmer ( @get_repost) ・・・ "But maybe don't 'tomorrow' your life away." @cleowade Somedays I wake up with heavy legs, but my mind is at ease... other days a flustered mind and eager legs. Yesterday morning was the rare occasion, I woke up with both 😳 I felt like a stone wall... cement in my legs and rocks on my heart. With little motivation, I relied on the hope that starting my day and ignoring the weight would be the best approach. Out for my ride passing countless, rolling stone walls... from heavy materials such beautiful and lasting formations. Serving as a reminder, it's all in how I choose to see things. Pick positive and pedal with purpose ✌️🚲💪 and around mile 30 the sun came out. I was able to unlayer and the warmth reminded me there is always lightness to be found. #bike #biking #outsideisfree #cycle #cyclist #cyclinglife #roadbike @theheavypedal #swimbikerun #marathontraining #runner #local #plantstrong #thirstythursday #rideordie #cardio #spinning #fitchick #mantra #legday #healthylifestyle #meditation #bicycle #ciclismo #gemstones #writersofinstagram
The pitter-patter of little raindrops, the feel of those misty mornings, the smell of old books, and the rhythm of streets of New York - I ❤️ them all! • • #love #light #life #vibes #weekend #instapic #picoftheday #instaart #thoughts #wordporn #vsco #vscocam #iphoneonly #downtownnyc #brooklynbridge #words #instawrite #writing #writersofinstagram #writers #newyork #newyorkcity
Apparently I sold enough books on the nook to actually get paid out money this month, which has only happened a few times in the last...what, six and a half years? Normally it's kindle and paperback sales. So thanks for buying and telling your friends to buy! I'm not going to share how much or how little I made, but it was a surprise either way haha. Read in Denver, Waypoint, Death Worth Living For, and As the Earth Trembles are available for purchase on Amazon and nook.com currently! #payday #sale #nook #kindle #amazon #books #writing #writer #writersofinstagram #read #denver
Maybe she stole it ... 😊❤️
Soooooo, I'm behind in my own freaking #photochallenge but Day 23 of @jessicajarman and my #writelifemay photo challenge is reward. One of my rewards for finishing a project is binge watching something on Netflix. Right now, it's Parks and Rec. 😄 #parksandrec #parkssndrecreation #treatyoself #netflix #writer #writerslife #writelife #writersofinstagram
My Grandma Rita used to sew in the skinny pantry attached to her kitchen. I have one million memories of scaring her in the pantry because she didn’t hear us coming up her back porch, WSMI blaring on the radio on top of her fridge. She patched and hemmed jeans for the entire town on a hand painted, pedal operated, black Singer sewing machine. I have just as many memories of Grandma charging three dollars when she should have charged much more, leaving the jeans in a stack on her front porch, the price pinned on the jeans with a pin from her tomato pin cushion. Grandma Rita had that personality--secretly sewing away in a tiny room, making worn out clothes work again, never wanting anything more than to help and to sew. Sweet Jesus, she loved to sew. Everything seemed to be in better working order around Grandma Rita (my heart when it was sad, my birthdays with her square cakes delivered to my door, every single second of my childhood). I want to be that kind of person--a patchwork person, quietly working to make people’s lives better, while still being fiercely strong and feisty toward the people I love. (For those of you who know Grandma, she’s 96 these days and still sweet, honest, rocks holiday turtlenecks, and doesn’t take crap from anyone) . . . . . . . . #100dailyletters #writersofinstagram #the100dayproject #dear2017 #100dayproject #communityovercompetition #pursuewhatislovely #ohwowyes #waketomake #handmadefont #theinstagramlab #goodnewsfeed #christiancreative

Tomorrow marks day 5 of our house and yard being a construction zone. I'm in a haze of jackhammer sounds and giant trenches dug by something called a 'ditch witch.' Things are messy right now. 🚚🕳🔦👷😳 BUT...we took an awesome family bike ride with Wells and Gus. Fitz brought home dinner from @foodstuffscatering. And tonight I get to salivate over NYC real estate and high-kick when Million Dollar Listing premieres. If you're having a sh*tshow day, take a deep breath and enjoy this pretty, serene garden I photographed at @chaletnursery last week. The weekend is almost here! 🌺

THIS IS, "The Agape Abyss", my very first book! s/o to @paulapocketz for doing the cover art! she took what was in my mind and LITERALLY put it on paper, now THAT is talent. this book will be full of metaphysical poetry and as a collective, it will describe my journey to ascension. it will be VERY uncomfortable for anyone who clings to tradition & religion so beware. turn on my page's notifications so you know exactly when i release it! YES it is a series & there will be more volumes to come as i transition into new & higher dimensions of my incarnate experience. i would like to believe that i wrote what people don't know how to articulate or are too afraid of judgement to say. so stay tuned! ✨🔮 #writer #poet #selfhelp #spirituality #nature #writersofinstagram #healing #awareness #ilovemycellf #reflections #theagapeabyss #publishing #readers #bookwormsunite #bookstagram #metaphysical #metaphysicalpoet #poetry

DAY 233: SONG OF THE DAY - Reunion by M83. Tonight I'm retiring to my Fortress of Solitude, aka my basement, to write. The family sleeps, but I'm on the amazing musical ride that is M83. #smittysmusic365 #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #music #musiclover #musicreview #songoftheday #goodmusic #electronica #m83 @m83music #scifi #writersblock @bestbaristaever @rendezvouscafelakeland
Hey you, it's time to wake up. Wake up from this unshakeable anxiety you have been bearing. Wake up from the circumstances that define you. Wake up from letting how you "feel" determine what you do. Girlfriend, it's time to wake up. It's time to look yourself in the mirror and say "I. Will. Get. Through. This." No matter how big the battle, no matter the number of restless nights, the painful days, and the shallow rejection... nothing is supposed to keep you. The power of hell is forever broken upon your life. You have the liberating freedom to keep pushing on even when you don't have the energy or the emotional happiness to do so. When you rest in Jesus.. every day you can wake up with mercies that are abundant to sustain you every morning. Every day you don't have to keep on sleeping and slushily going through the motions. Every day you can wake up with the hope that you can get through this because he is giving you the strength to go through it. He knows just what you need before you even say a word. Keep on pushing, keep on fighting, keep on becoming.
And here I am, Walking back through our path, Collecting every pieces of me. And I just realize, How bad you broke me, These pieces are sharps, And it cuts me, Everytime I stumbled into them, I started to crumble.
I have finished writing two stories over 100k words this year, so I'm rather proud of myself. That, and this particular part in one of said stories.😂😁👌🏽 #writersofinstagram #writing #quotes #mentalillnessawareness

Ironically, both Russ and J. Cole will be putting on concerts near me in June and i will attend both. I love J. Cole and everything he represents, he's a brilliant rapper. What Russ does is everything. In my opinion he's the best all aroind artist right now, better than Drake. #Poetry #PoemPorn #PoetryPorn #Poem #WritersOfInstagram
