Word of the Day – Crucible – ‘Slam Your Door’

Today's word of the day is crucible, or a sever test. I had a little trouble naming this one, I considered naming it 'Test of Time and Love' but it didn't feel quite right... I might write a poem with that title, but I feel like it would be a little lighter or maybe upbeat.… Continue reading Word of the Day – Crucible – ‘Slam Your Door’

Word of the Day – Inalienable – ‘Confession’

Today's word of the day was inalienable, meaning incapable of being alienated, surrendered, or transferred. It took me so long to write this. I didn't want to get political or sad, so I tried to make something beautiful, unfortuantely I feel it's lacking... a lot. Maybe I'll rewrite it when I'm not so tired and… Continue reading Word of the Day – Inalienable – ‘Confession’

Word of the Day – Parataxis – ‘Going Home’

To be honest, I didn't know there was a word for this, and yet it's one of my favorite things to do.

'Going… Continue reading Word of the Day – Parataxis – ‘Going Home’

Shadow of May – Day Six – ‘Terribly Lucky”

Sorry this is so late! The last two days I've been working 15 hour shifts, which means when I got home I barely had the energy to draw any cards, let alone write.
