I’m trying to put all of my poetry here, just for the ease of access.

This is an old one, written for Nick Drake, an incredible folk singer from the ’60s, whose music kept me afloat in times I didn’t want to be. I owe Nick much of my life, and while we never shared a moment of co-existence, I’m so grateful for Nicholas Rodney Drake and so, so in love with him.



NaPoWriMo: Day 4


I lasted one day.

This has to be a record even for me. I’m motivated, nonetheless. And although I’ll probably end up Arthur Shappey-ing my way through this month, as long as I have 30 (if not more) poems to show by the end of it, I’ll be happy!

I’m going to try and write 3 poems today, and day four was a great place to start since I love the prompt(write about the cruelest month). So here it is!

This particular poem comes from the fact that I will be meeting the person I was in love with (and who was my best friend) in December and I’m already anxious. I am afraid that I’ll start feeling how I used to and even more afraid that I might not.

(AND I just realized that everything seems to have jarring romantic overtones. Not that romantic overtones are bad, it’s just slightly disconcerting for me to write all this stuff in the current mental state that I am in. It’ll probably fade away in a bit. At least that’s what I’m hoping)


NaPoWriMo: Day 1

Goodness, it’s been so long since I’ve written a blog post. Years, I think. These days I don’t even type much on tumblr. It’s hard to get into the habit of writing again. Right now, as I type, I can feel an itch building under my skin, trying to take me away from this site. However, this time I’m not giving up that easy. For the first time in my life, I’m participating in NaPoWriMo. This is the most ambitious thing I’ve ever tried, writing wise, and I’m not sure I can stick with it.

But goddammit, I’m gonna try.

Today’s optional theme was a lune – I didn’t stick with it. Instead I’ve written about being ready to love. It took me far too much time to get over someone I loved dearly, but now that I have, I can’t wait to fall in love again. Only this time, I hope it ends well.
