“Human”

Maybe
the universe is testing me.

Maybe
that’s why I got thrown the promotion
to fix
the unfixable problems.

Maybe
that’s why I fell in love and then out
to see
my unseeable habits.

Maybe
that’s why my words got rejected again and again
to write
what I had never written before.

I just wish
it didn’t have to happen
all
at
once.

I
am
no
hero.

I am just human.

“Lady Luck”

Lady Luck
is an elusive beauty.

Those
who seek her
will search and never find
that ruffled red dress,
bright beguiling smile
and wise witty banter.

But those
who work towards their own abundance
will find her a constant companion
walking down the path next to them
pushing them farther
than they ever thought possible.

“Mrs. Hyde”

Light eyes,
bouncy hair,
a smile
with no care.

Piercing gaze,
tight bun,
a smirk
that looks like fun.

Sweatshirt,
dark jeans,
blue socks,
stars on the seams.

Black blazer,
red blouse,
pumps starting fires
to be doused.

The fear
is high in your eyes.
Mistaking your impression
for her guise.

Well,
surprise.

Announcement! Radiate Literary Publication #2

Hey guys!! I made another submission to Radiate Literary, an online literary journal focused on promoting young voices. For their Winter issue they wanted work focused on fairytales and those are my favorite types of stories!

Awhile back last spring I wrote a poem “Fairytale” that got a lot of attention on my blog so I decided to submit it here. I had the pleasure of working with one of their wonderful editors, Sam, and with some of his great suggestions I revamped the poem. The new version just went live!!

Here’s the link—) “Fairytale”

If you have some free time, give it a read. It was one of my most favorite poems to write.

Till next time,
