Confidence

Those who hurt the most

Understand confidence the best.

When your heart aches

Turn to those who know your pain.

The saddest souls

Will work the hardest to save you.

They wish only for your happiness

Because they know your sorrows.

A bad day

Life is confusing

Yet also amusing.

Some days, the sky is clear

The next day storm clouds are near.

A smile can brighten a heart

That was dark from the start.

A gesture can ruin

Anyone’s joy.

Sometimes it’s easier to cry

Instead of asking why.

A haiku about you

My inspiration.

My best friend and my soul mate.

The love of my life.

 

*I go through phases in poetry. I’m sure it isn’t hard to guess what phase I’m in now.*

Baby Birds

Baby birds don’t get scared.

They leap from their perches,

Trusting their instincts will kick in.

My instinct is to be with you.

I have leapt from my perch,

Heart open and arms spread wide.

I can’t be afraid.

I can’t hesitate.

I must trust that I will learn you

And you will learn me.

Whispered love

There was a knock at my window

And a name softly spoken.

Joy consumed me,

For I knew who had arrived.

We talked in hushed whispers,

A wall dividing us only barely.

Our hands and lips were brought together

Sometimes softly

And sometimes with desperation.

When you left, I was smiling

But I wished you wouldn’t haven’t gone.

I yearned for your embrace,

For your protection

And prayed that one day I would have it.

A drumming heart

I though it would be hard

To be away from you.

Instead I was caught off guard

To know we will make it through.

Tougher times are to come.

I can only think of you,

And the way you make my heart thrum

A tempo that is brand new.

An explanation

So I took a little bit of a “blogging Hiatus.”

Here’s what happened.

I got really busy with school, my YouTube channel, and my novel. I kept telling myself I needed to blog, felt guilty about it even, but it just never happened.

And now, here I am!

The first draft of my third novel is finally finished and editing will commence soon. As for my YouTube channel, you can check out all my new videos here.

Meanwhile, I’m hoping to return to my blog! More poems, novel updates, and the like are to come! Stay tuned.

Learn more about The Little Paragons

As formerly announced, I have a YouTube channel and my latest video includes a brief explanation of my novels! I figured it’s easier to just make a video than explain my novels every time someone asks about them.

I’m either a genius or an idiot. It depends on whether people actually watch it…

Anywho, if you haven’t taken the time to learn more about my novels (The Little Paragons and The Little Villains) then now is the perfect opportunity.

CLICK HERE to watch my newest video.

CLICK HERE to buy my first novel.

Thanks!

Smiles for miles

You are my life,

My world,

And my entire existence.

Yet when I think of you

I only remember

The impending distance.

The fear I feel

Is spread wide

Across the miles,

So I know,

I must have faith

In your confident smiles.

My YouTube channel

As my senior year FINALLY comes to a close, I find myself scrounging for ways to broaden my portfolio. I’m trying to write more novels and plays while filming short films, stop motions, and new packages.

For those of you who don’t know, I’m going to college for a B.A. in Cinematic Production. I’ll be attending my local community college in order to save money on transferrable core classes, and then I’m transferring to Point Park University in Pittsburgh. I’m extremely anxious to get started at Point Park, but I understand that the year of waiting is a good time to create a broad and interesting portfolio (#ScholarshipsWillBeMyLifeSaver).

The portfolio is my main concern as of lately. Because of that, I’ve created a YouTube channel to promote my newest creations. I’ll be trying to post new videos as often as possible, some of which may be about my writing life and my novels.

Long story short, this is just a plea for people to check out my channel, subscribe, and Like. 🙂

Here’s the link to my channel and I hope you find yourself even moderately entertained.

MY CHANNEL

**Note that my channel is a little sparse right now but I have things I’m hoping to add soon so stay tuned… AKA subscribe.**
