Publication

I’m so excited to announce that one of my poems has been accepted for publication from https://peekingcatpoetry.co.uk

I’m getting published to their website June 6th and will be in an upcoming print edition! I can’t explain how exciting this is for me. I have been writing for years and finally decided to take a little chance and make a submission for publication. This is such awesome news.

Blogging into nothingness

I’ve tried to find a place for my words

So many pages aging yellow

Gathering dust

Crumbling in the corner in my room

Forgotten in a file on a phone

Or left about strewn in pages

Notebooks covered in fragments of my life.

A dream to publish to tell my story

Even to one soul.

Rather than scattered remnants and memories.

Lonely numbers

Each inseparable friend

Has now uprooted

Causing me to feel a chasm

Uneasy in my loneliness

I never spoke up much anyway

I listen more than share

I create too much concern

When discussing my morbid loss

Sessions with me are one sided

I withhold inner truths

Exhaustion

I never realized how tired I was

Until my eyes began to burn

And ache with sheer urge

To close squeeze lashes

Soften tears sclera bathed

Hushed memories hushed mind

Sleep at last.

Eggshell

If my shell splinters or crackles

Spiderwebs into tiny minuscule pieces

Any further

My contents will emerge

Splatter melt tumble aloft

The rubble that’s left

Memories of me scattered onto the floor
