Alone

I waited, hoping Nothing I stayed behind Nothing I keep peeking out the window Nothing I am alone More alone than I have ever been Adrift Abandoned -- again Sad Full of sorrow My health declines My will nearly gone I wait Alone Unwanted Unneeded Unchosen Second, again -- not even Tossed aside Ground underfoot...

Never

Longing Lost Adrift Alone Unwanted Uncared for Devoid of passion Lacking love Existence, tortured Despair, daily To feel a touch, never again To be desired, forgotten Days of exhaustion Nights without sleep Earth, purgatory, hell all one Escape?

Just because someone doesn’t like your story…..

.....doesn't mean you didn't tell a good story! On the author pages I belong to on social media, I see comments from authors distraught that someone gave their writing a negative review. In a profound way, when I read these comments, it pains me. When someone reviews a story, the odds are their review does... Continue Reading →

Book Review – Following the Green Rabbit: a fantastical adventure by Chris Hall

The self-righteous self-helpers offer unsolicited words with only one purpose --- to give themselves a superior sense of self. Lacking even a single request, they offer... Continue Reading →
