Hi, and welcome to my blog-turned-place where I post my writing. This is my outlet to put them up, which was radically different from the blog that this started out as. I hope you'll have a good time reading my blog/place where I post some poetry and some short stories. I try to cover a variety of topics in these works of mine, so I hope any readers will enjoy it. I'm not an English major by any stretch, but I enjoy writing. Critique would be nice for my writing, cause lord knows I could work on it. Enjoy!

That Lonely Feeling (co-written with a friend)

Sometimes I start to panic about the promises I’ve made
And I try to do the best I can
To make up for my mistakes.
Mistakes of the long forgotten past.

And when I ask her,
I ask her, I ask her about those moments
When I lied or cheated,
How she felt.
When I was scared away. When I was wandering those lonely roads.

Thinking I was alone. In that lonely stretch of earth.
Do you hear my late night cries? Do you know that I miss you?
I wonder if you care for me anymore.

Time has a way of erasing love from each other.

An unloved land

It was there. Sticking out like a sore thumb. An oasis of barrenness in a field of life.

In a short distance, there was a contrast.
On one side, there were buildings. Buildings that housed life and color.
On the other side, there was a vast and mighty ocean.
                That stretched out and eventually morphed into a grand deity.
Reminiscent of the Great War, there was a no man’s land. Barren. Empty.

The sand was there, where no sides dared to cross.
No one told them that they couldn’t claim the land-it was an unofficial rule that they wouldn’t.
The middle was like where civilization halted, where the blue waters refused to touch.
No claims were made in the name of H2O, nothing.
It was like a fairy tale was real; this arrangement was abrupt and unexpected.

The city was pushing to the vestige of its limits, yet
it didn’t want this territory. Nobody did.
There were no signs saying “Halt. Do not step on this land.”
Though one expected a park ranger to step out and tell you to punish the first person
who was brazen enough to set a toe on this infamous plot of land.

Would there be anyone who’d eventually dare do it?
To step foot on that hallowed, yet bare, land?

A blend of unique

In a way, I feel like a viking, rich man, and a young child.
All rolled together, in a unique blend.
A blend that makes me a stronger, better person.

The cruise ship serves as a launching point point,
from which to touch down on to foreign lands.
Taking their culture and getting rich from that.

The rich man in me pops up like the Hulk in Bruce Banner.
As on this ship I have plenty.
Plenty of people to entertain me.
Plenty of food and the capacity to eat at my leisure.

As for the young child, well, it’s easy.
It’s like seeing something new for the first time,
                and being in childlike awe at it.
There’s so much novelty of this thing,
novelty that won’t be forgotten for a very long time.

And it’s all very true.

I get to visit the lands that the Vikings came from
and meet their descendants.
I get to take home experiences that will make me rich,
rich beyond anyone’s imaginations.
I get to experience something new, with the childlike fervor,
for the first time. Thanks to a parent who cares and supports me.

This mix, this blend,
                It’s what makes life good.
