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… Continue reading Learn more about The Little Paragons
You are my life,
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.
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… Continue reading My YouTube channel
Chapter 1 The Great Gretel I once had a genie that could make my wildest dreams come true. If I had that genie in the real world I’m not sure what I would wish for. Most seventeen year-olds would ask to be rich, famous, or at least hot enough to bang a celebrity. Some may… Continue reading Read “The Little Villains” first chapter…
The sound so sweet,
A tune impossible to beat.
Keys pressed like finger tips
To your gently lips.
My eyes filled with tears
As I thought of future years,
Ones spent with a song in my heart
And a love that doesn’t part.
Our love could have been
The most famous Shakespearean play.
There were evil villains full of sin
And romance that was a tad cliché.
For each other, we would have betrayed the world
But in the end we didn’t need to.
Around him my heart whirled
And that was when our love was new.
I hadn’t imagined the future before me;
One full of lies, stress, and most importantly: Love.
If I had known, I would never have thought to agree
But it seems there was an intervention from above.
Our love was like a Shakespearean play
That continues every day.
**It’s a beautiful winter day, school got canceled, and love is on my mind so I figured I would right a good ol’ fashion Shakespearean sonnet.**
I could hear voices on the wind
But when I glanced behind me
I knew that it was all in my mind.
There was nothing there that I could see.
I swore I heard someone, though,
Even if it wasn’t possible.
Someone was watching me go
And speaking in a voice barely audible.
Leaving was my mistake
This is know,
For the tone I couldn’t shake
Sparked a pain I couldn’t undergo.
I remember the way we moved
And the way the song went,
But my mind has since forgotten your scent
Because I now only feel misused.
I’ve moved on
And hope you’ve done the same
Yet I know I’m still the one you blame.
I’m not longer your pawn
And no longer have my eyes on you.
Rather I’m doing a new dance,
Giving someone else a chance
To make my heart sing anew.
Enduring the daily chore
Just got worse.
This day I curse
Because my patience for it is poor.
To be forced to love,
To be forced to attend,
These people are like a hall with no end,
And a door closed with a shove.
Yet somehow the gathering will pass,
I will survive every Sunday’s Mass.
This family I cannot hate
No more than the food I ate.
They are my obligation
Because I was their creation.
I was out of place,
Lost among streets I didn’t recognize.
I thought it was over,
Until you appeared.
Before I knew what was happening,
I felt your hand in mine.
Calloused fingers entwined with smaller ones,
And the struggle was over.
You guided me to familiarity,
And although I didn’t find
The item lost
I’d found a more precious one
